    Need some help with TBS Discovery FPV Wiring

    Hey guys

    Im a bit confused on how to to get my FPV gear to all talk. I have watched video after video but I am completely thrown off by the core and the switcher. i am looking to use the DJI mini-osd in conjunction with the core osd. A friend on the forum currently uses both and I have them already so I would definitely like to give it a try. These are the components I am looking to install:- TBS core
    - HS1177 cam
    - Go Pro Hero 3 Silver cam
    - Fpv Switcher
    - DJI Mini-OSD
    - TBS Unify Pro HV 5.8 VTX

    Oh one last thing. I was told that the core has a camera switcher already built in but I couldn't find any information on that. Does anyone know if this is accurate?
    thanks

    Hey Nightram
    Happy New Year
    I did read it and I just went back to the manual to make sure I didn't miss it and I do not see anything on using the core as a camera switcher

    Sorry my mistake, the pro has the switcher. Wiring is on page 14 of manual for normal setup.

    Just put them inline before the vtx.

    I wouldnt bother with the gopro feed as it will always be the same as your normal cam anyway.

    im sorry if I'm just dense but what would be considered b4 the vtx since everything is in the frame? Or are you referring to the video pad on the frame? I'm eventually installing my zenmuse h3-3d so I figured I would get the wiring out of the way for the switcher.
