Can't watch the vid right now, but did you convert the analog one to DJI setup, or did you also get the DJI version? Considering the link is to the BnF, I assume it came pre-built, like the analog version.

With the flight controller also being different (and I wanted to see how well they build this version) I opted for a second one
BG only has them on pre-sale now, but Holybro already ships them..

I see. Did you also communicate with Holybro? I keep getting no reply on mail, or FB...

The following video actually isn't really about the Kopis Mini per-sť..
It's more general purpose on how to add a "normal" receiver to DJI Digital FPV setup

Using the sale01 email address? I've sent a new mail last week, no reply whatsoever. Tried FB as last resolve, I rarely use it, but no response there either...

Hope they will fix the VTX tables in the next batches for the analog version. The manual nicely states you can change things with OSD, using SA, but when you try, you get a blank screen with the "please update VTX tables" warning... Not what you would expect from a higher up brand like Holybro.

Yeahhh I guess they jumped the gun a bit by going with a more recent BF version
Oeps.. the manual doesn't include that tables thing yet

But yes.. they did state they will include that loaded up in next batches.
For me it would be better if they Don't so people have to watch my video :P

So that is why I can't simply copy the tables from the FB page that you posted these on. I had to watch your vid and copy from the description instead. So that's your evil scheme...

For those that have this quad or were planning to get one...

The FPV antenna isn't well supported so I drew up this support...

Holybro has the tendency to mount the VTX antenna very close to the frame. Benefit is that it's less likely to have the antenna get chopped up by the props, in a crash. But the antenna doesn't have much "free view" so there is often more static, even on higher power settings.

yes true.. people tell me that isn't much of a problem with the DJI system..

Then again: people tell me all kinds of things

I'm not taking any chances as I like flying over water..

Maybe not a problem when using insanely high power levels on VTX. But it seems that any antenna would benefit from having as much clear "view" as possible.

yes.. having the antenna "out there" also makes it easier to damage it.. It's a give & take kind a thing.. I have several racing quads with Short antenna.. Those quads all show a bit more "snow" in the video.. but you wouldn't be flying a racer long-range
