    vortex Mojo 230 OSD question flashing and/or betaflight

    I can't get Betaflight to activate the OSD page, turning the switch to activate it in the Configuration page does add the OSD page to the list in the column to the left but if I save and go to the OSD page the OSD tab disappears from the column to the left, the OSD page stays blank and navigating back to the Configuration page reveals the OSD switch to be 'unselected' as if I never switched it on or as if I forgot to save the change...

    Is betaflight OSD something that the Vortex Mojo 230 can't work with?

    I used Vortex Configurator to re-flash Betaflight FC firmware from the latest at Immersion's download site vs. 3.2.2 however using the Configurator to try to re-install the OSD gives a warning "Programming:Failed, Bootloader Communication Problem" is that related to the issue?

    The quad that is doing this is a Vortex Mojo 230 with Betaflight firmware 3.2.2 installed via the Vortex Configurator.
    I also can't re-flash the OSD portion of the firmware.
    Any help is most welcome

    I'm lost here and can't find anyone in a search that has had this happen...

    Thanks for any help

    The mojo uses our own osd. You can't configure it with betaflight osd.

    Thanks! That makes sense and explains the Betaflight problem.
    How about my inability to re-flash the Mojo OSD using the Vortex Configurator?

    I can re-flash the flight controller (file - betaflight_3.2.2_IRCSYNERGYF3.hex) using it but not able to use it to re-flash the OSD (file - OSD_v1.0.0.52.fw)

    I get a warning in the Vortex Configurator: "Programming:Failed, Bootloader Communication Problem"

    Does flashing the OSD require a different process than the flight controller?

    I have a 230 Mojo on the way, so I can't comment on that quad specifically, but my experience with my Vortex 250 Pro and the same Vortex Configurator app is you just have to keep trying over and over to update it. The entire process is pretty flaky. Sometimes it takes a shload of tries and then it finally "takes" for some reason that is not evident or even explainable. IRC needs to tighten that shit up when it comes to updating as I'm not the only one, by far, with this complaint/issue. I just went through this (again) and it took me nine attempts to get my 250 Pro on BF 3.2.2.

    Bandy that's the irc curse for being hard on Sassen .

    Try a different usb cable and re install the drivers. These are mostly driver issues.

    I know. I also apologized. And, you know what? Just got my Mojo today and updated the OSD and BF to the latest IRC versions with no issue. Maybe I appeased the gods of Sassen? LOL
