Here is my system. It is mostly OK now thanks to this thread but I still have some lines when I move my servos a lot
I can see the potential ground loop in the in the Tornado OSD itself but I am not sure removing one of the GND would be a good Idea...
Thanks in advance.
Yes there is a loop with the Current Sensor and also one with the LC Filter.
Make the Regulator your only ground to the OSD.
you might want to cut the ground after the bec also, On the storm at least, all the grounds are connected, weather 5v or 12v
If you didn't build it, don't fly it!!!!

OK, I removed the ground line in the Tornado itself by cutting the 12V ground. It is better but I still have a little bit of lines when moving the servos.
The current sensor is not responsible (I tried with the connector removed). Maybe I should take the power for the 5V before the LC Filter or even before the 12V regulator, there is no need for it to be filtered anyways.
Could somebody take a look at my diagram? I am unsure if it possible to implement my setup with a video switch and cameras on two different voltage without a ground loop? Thanks!
most of the major hardware has linked(common) grounds... ie... PH, CS, RX, BEC and VS so you don't need to run a separate ground to them just one to a central point in the wiring like the PH.
so, how many batteries are you using here? 3-4... you only need 1
and... what is the 'video in' box?
I had two batteries, one for video and one for everything else. You were right though. I went and cut probably 5 grounds and everything still works. Video in is where video signal enters the Vector. It leaves the vector through a Video Tx plug.
I was using 2 batts because I was seeing throttle dependent interference but I'm going to try some lc filters instead.
From my understanding you should cut the ground from stepdown to FC and also cut the red wire as well. Your FC is powered from the rx.
No need to power it from elsewhere also.
