    Help with Skylark tiny osd

    I had my stuff working last night then I tried to figure out how to wire up the Skylark and I think I messed up my tx for the plane. I got power to the skylark. I powered it of a BEC. Then I could not figure out how to get the osd to show up on the video. It says video in then video out then a ground. However I tried all those in a variety of combos and could not get it to show up. Then After all my screwing around I can't get a a picture now even setup with original config.

    Using a Skylark osd
    Castle bec.
    Ready made RC tx on the plane.

    Can anyone help me I am sure it is a wiring issue just not sure where

    Are you sure that you haven't toasted any of the gear? What part of town are you located? The Tiny is the easiest OSD to install on the planet.

    It's in the Skylark Tiny OSD thread which I hope anyone who has one has read from beginning to end. Schematics start on page 4 and go to page 7 IIRC.

    Well did not see the thread til now. So much stuff on internet it is hard to keep up with everything. Anyway Cpt obvious, my bigger issue is that I am no longer getting a signal from my video tx. I will have to sort that our first. Then re-work the OSD. I hate the build process. And this one has already pushed me to my limit..lol I think I will have to order another Video tx. Thanks Sentry I will read up on that thread while I am waiting for parts.

    When are you free - if you can get to Powder Springs I'll help you troubleshoot on my bench --- but you COULD have fried the vTx --- I'm not sure. I am just trying to help kind sir. I smoked 2 LM vTxs in one day bc my head wasn't in the game - I've been there - LOL.
