hi folks iam new to the group today. my osd does not work my problem started with waiting for mavlink error. through forums I have now purchased 2 fti adaptors to communicate with the osd. I have been advised to use arduino to program the osd. first how do I identify what minim osd I have. iam hooked up and I hit the upload button and I get the error exit status 1 , error compiling for board. I have tried selecting many different boards under the tool menu and I get the same message. I have no clue what iam doing obviously and I need help please. I even bought another minim osd this week and have the same issue. through my messing with them I do not even get the overlay now that states searching for mavlink heartbeats. please help. how do I identify my board . iam communicating , my comport is right iam doing something wrong.
my name is jim I have been flying elec planes for 10 or so years ago and I have now bought my 1st quadcopter. iam now flying fpv and trying to get my osd on my goggles so I can get the live data and fly this copter in manual instead of auto. my flight controller is a devo m and I sent it out to be modified for the osd and I believe it is correct.
ps. I wished these osd,s would work out of the box. I did not expect I would have to become a programmer to get this to work. please help
