To put it mildly. The image seems to shift when the quad is pitched up or down, and even the OSD can slide up and down as well.

Neither have I. I will try a different VTX, and maybe even different camera too.

I tried different VTX, no difference. Leaves only the camera and the FC as possible culprits.

Well, the problem causing the weird shifting image as the quad was tilted, was the camera. Already tried different settings on the OSD tab, NTSC or PAL instead of Auto, and different VTX, so it could only be the FC or camera. Since the anomaly moved with the quad being tilted, I was afraid the FC was causing the problem, but the first different micro camera I connected, a Caddx F1, already gave steady image. Eventually I settled for a Runcam Micro Swift clone, which has more natural colors than the Caddx.

Video uploading now.


Edit: here it is:

Thanks, Max.

You didn't have to change any PID settings for 4S, right? As I feel this one really needs 4S to be able to compete with quads like the Fuuton 2, Excelvan X218S and mostly the Kopis 2, which each outperform the STX225 if running a similar battery.
