I'm new here and like alot what tons of info I just found here!
Hope you can point me to my problems with the ezOSD:
I wanted to install ezOSD in the nose of my new EasyStar2 to get a nice longrange plane again.
I found on the first testflight - that even after 10mins I had no satellites.
Also I had a mature video fropout on this first LOS testflight in just 100m distance (normally going easy 2km with this setup ov vtx...).
the ezOSD worked before on other planes
If using the FOXTECH FPV Cam connected to the ezOSD - I get no sats!
If disconnected it takes around 1,5min for the sats to come (maybe 2mins to have 5+ sats?).
I also tried a more expensive IF OSC cam (480tvl lines) on the same setup - same result - if the cam is near (10-15cm) to the GPS Sensor - no sats! I had no cable to get the cam further away from the sensor. I had the GPS Sensor around 20cm max away (using the longer GPS cable that comes with the ezOSD)
The VTX is quite far (50-60cm?) - so this shouldn't be a problem!
I'd really like to start using ezOSD again (for longrange, voltage check and orientation) but at the moment I think about leaving it out for simplicity (just like my tricopter FPV setup which was easy and very successfull this year!).
But on the other hand - the ezOSD cost some bucks - so I should use it!
Question: can one prolong the GPS Sensor-cable using normal servo wires to mount it out far on the wing?
And: I use Thomas Scherrers LRS here for Radio - can this influence OSD? the receiver is in the middle of the plane (under the wing)
Thanks for any help,
