when did you order yours? still havent gotten mine.
Just got the CORE installed in my EZStar and rather than tuck it in the battery compartment/cockpit like I did with the NGHobbies I put it out on the wing so I won't be moving wires around.
Finished up soldering and putting wires back in their grooves (It's not as ugly as it looks)....And I came home tonight and powered up and VOILA!
Interesting to note that normally I would get INTENSE wireless interference due to my wireless being 8 ft behind my plane.
I may get up early and go fly the fairgrounds tomorrow as a test, would be nice if it cleaned up some of my interference (Or maybe it was internal).
Zephy is keeping the v2 PSU since it's buried in the plane. The Tricopter will get the 2nd CORE and I intend to run that on a two battery system so that will be fun.

looks great Scott. Love the GoPro mount up front there haha.
I uploaded this wiring diagram to the tech section a while ago, but after receiving the new Core I needed to do some changes.
I would really appreciate if someone would take a quick look to make sure I got it right
eeee, that's an excellent drawing!!! could we use that for our website / manual? in which software did you draw it?
only objection I have: the backup battery will not be of any use since the EzOSD shuts down if the main battery fails.
Sure can, I should have switched the EzOsd to the TBS text, but haven't gotten that far. It's made in MS Visio, super simple for drawings.
I will do some mods to it in the next few days and send you a copy
How would I connect the OSD to the b/u batt to get this working?
I would suggest not including it in the instructions at all. It would require some modifications to the current sensor if I remember correctly. RiSCyD advised me on not suggesting anyone to do it, as it's too risky to damage something. we have one working, but it looks ugly. We use the backup-battery only on the non-EzOSD planes.
Having said all that, RiSCyD did post some instructions in the TBS PSU thread a while ago
PS: I have MS Visio, would love to get the file from you. Thanks!!
excellent diagram indeed.
Looking at the diagram, VTX is connected to TBS VTX, TBS CAM is connected to V OUT on EzOSD and FPV Cam is connected to V IN on EzOSD. So taking this setup as base, if I want to connect tbs core with my hornet osd, should i do the same? So vtx to TBS vtx, TBS Cam to osd OUT and FPV cam to osd IN.
no the hornet OSD does not pass through the power. On the EzOSD, the "in" and "out" power are just looped through. The hornet OSD tries to supply power into the in and out from the power input. If both your equipment runs on 12V, you can take the CORE and wire either the cam or the VTx output to the power in of the Hornet OSD. Be sure to configure the output for 12V. then wire the camera and VTx to the hornet OSD without going through the CORE. the Hornet OSD will feed power to cam and vtx.
