That was sooo crazy cool Thomas! Wow I wish I was there to see that and yes, I heard the super sonic sound of speed in the background! Amazing OSD! You guys are very advanced with the stuff that is being thought/produced at Intelligent Flight! Great show!! :D:D

Hi there Woody. You PM'd me, but I don't have a message in my Inbox... not sure how that happens.

In reply to your question about how I solved the 'green bar then error' situation: It stopped when I tried connecting the IFOSD to the PC while the GPS was UNplugged... because... (I can hardly bear to admit this!)... if the GPS is plugged in, the serial cable isn't :blink:

... my only excuse was that I was looking at a big pile of wiring spaghetti on my bench!

heh heh heh.... that's ok pal... we've all been there! ;)

I have now added a Trouble Shooting FAQ section at the bottom of this page:

http://www.webx.dk/rc/video-wireless/video-osd.htm

And the tweaks have been updated.

updated that page again 1. nov

vova made me a really neat how to make loopback test discription,

it seems like we often see driver install and compatible problems with different computers, so it is a good idea to perform the loopback test in case of "no connect" to osd issues. This will isolate the problem then it is faster and more simple to solve it.

Thanks JMS "playing" with OSD is now a full time job :-)

I can add futher to the backup current,

if we add a coin cell CR2032 size 220mAh

the capacity will be drained 200mAh/6.2uA = 35483hrs = 4.05 years

http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/batter...2032_CR2320.pdf

The GPS weight 15.3, coin cell 3.3gr

total 18.6 (+ connectors and cable)

a smaller coin cell could be used, or a super cap is also possible.

dead-eb85-008.jpg

good news, the EB85 have an internal diode from VCC input power to the backup pin, so if you use a super cap, simply use one with high internal resistance, so you dont overload the diode at first powerup, or if your super cap is over 50mA capeable just add a series resistor.

--------------------

can anyone please explain me WHY I can measure a current usage on the backup signal WHEN the GPS is powered, this is tried at ANY backup voltage !

diode defective ? in the GPS I tried ?

can someone please try to make this backup current test ?

please ?

SOLVED !!! it was a defective diode !!! all other EB85 works fine,

dont overload this tiny internal backup charge diode

>Or i could just email etek...

ok please ask :

backup currents, min. normal, max, over temperature ?

backup content ok from what min voltage ?

backup max/min kill voltage ?

the external backup cap charge diode can handle hom much current ?

also ask if they have protected any pins/signals from over/under voltage ?

Claus,

You're forgiven :)

I remember my first time: a 3D plane with screw-driver type roll rates is what I used on my FPV maiden, and it was darn fast to boot, not an ideal platform really which I was soon to find out.

At some point I lost all my bearings, no idea where the plane was going or what was up or down, and I didn't have a spotter, it was just me alone at the flying field. So I quickly took off the goggles and frantically started looking around, just to find the plane mere seconds before it finished the steep rolling dive it entered towards the ground a good 200-meters away from me.

Pfewww, that was really a close call, leaving me with sweaty palms and elevated heartbeat :P

Cheers,

Sander.

NEWS: we have today released a new engine chip firmware V 1.16D

it is fully compatible with any previous video chip 1.02 and 1.03 and 1.04

fixed two bugs:

1. in feet as height and auto zero enabled, the zero will not be 0

2. if many things was displayed on the OSD some NMEA pakages will be lost

people having problems with the mentioned issues contact mark or me for patch..

----------------------------------------------------------------------

more news : in the near future we will release a new firmware 1.17

it is NOT compatible with the video chip 1.00 to 1.04 !!

so users can NOT upgrade them self, sorry about that.

in this new version, there will not be any PAL / NTSC version anymore.

the user can directly change 3 parameters in the video chip, via the OSD config software.

and make NTSC and PAL or what ever else you like.

for example you can go into hi res modes or add extra lines, or make txt so big only less lines are possible,

it is all up to you..

screenshoots of some internal versions here:

hg2-st20-sto147-lines16_withpal.jpg

http://www.webx.dk/rc/video-wireless/hg2-s...s16_withpal.jpg

(those settings will be the same as the 1.02 normally know as the PAL version, 16 lines in total)

hg3-st26-sto194-lines21_withpal.jpg

http://www.webx.dk/rc/video-wireless/hg3-s...s21_withpal.jpg

hg4-st30-sto222-lines24_withpal.jpg

http://www.webx.dk/rc/video-wireless/hg4-s...s24_withpal.jpg

you can actually do combinations, and use PAL in ntsc mode to make it look like higher res.

RELEASE, hum, soon I hope,

feel free to comment ??

those are the 3 settings the users can change INDIVIDUALLY

and any value avtually, so you can also end up OSD'ing only a halve line :-)

if you like ?

I will puplish a set of good working default values to make a good start.

Really nice those features, I think that is one of the most user friendly out there.

What about compatibility with Oracle? Have you catch this issue yet? For me for example probably I would not flight without Oracle again!!!

yes that is a long ago we had that issue, it was actually only the first versions

that had a bit too much white and dark signal (ups)

we have now our own Oracle to test with here,

and with the new versions of IFOSD I have not seen any more changes in Oracle behaviour

no matter if I have OSD on or off,

the be honest I see some strange behaviour with Oracle, but it doest exacyly the same thing,

no matter if I have OSD connected or not :-)

So I am sure if you like and use Oracle, you can also use it with IFOSD, I can not see any problems,

but I sure could with the first version of our IFOSD :-)

The things I see with my Oracle is fast and un-nessesary changes when both inputs are both perfect,

with and without OSD !

actually I dont think it is a problem for the users, since both pictures are good :-)

but I just have imagined it not to change input when they are both perfect,

also I have no idea what Oracle firmware version I have, it might be an old version,

and this might have been fixed, I did not design the Oracle and I can not support it due to limited know how in its software.

Great news you´ve solved, I haven´t seen that behaviour on Oracle you´re describing.

I usually have same receiver on. Oracle in a 30 min flight changes about 4 or 5 times sources. At many moments image is great on both receivers, so I haven´t seen this with Oracle.

one more new thing

http://www.webx.dk/rc/video-wireless/video-osd.htm

scroll down to the PC software configuration, and read about the new settings,

they are now made LIVE updating, and the OSD have added line numbers when in config mode,

so you can easily uptimize the settings to fit your taste / need.

so far only few of our alfa testers have seen the first test version, and they love it.

really no comments ?

about the ability to have new resolutions added with full user configuration of this.

I agree with Kilrah, it is hard to comment when we don't have one to play with and can't purchase one. It seems like it has been 'out of stock' forever on the intelligent flight web site. :(
