    I'm stumped...just finished a new F550 with Naza M V2, PMU and GPS. Everything works great-no issues. I'm adding FPV to this hex and plan to use a Fatshark video tx (left over from another quad that's idle), iOSDmini and Lumenier CS-600 camera. Also plan to go to a 4S on this hex for better flight times.

    I know there will be a issue getting proper voltage to the camera (per Lumenier's specs the camera will take anywhere between 9-12 volts), which means I'll have to drop it somehow, but that's not the issue I'm dealing with right now.

    My immediate problem is I can't figure out where the iOSDmini hooks up in this arrangement. On my P2, I plugged in the iOSDmini directly into the "CANBUS" connector which is conveniently mounted on the landing leg of the P2. But I don't have one on the hex. Do I need to buy the CAN HUB to make this work?

    Thanks!

    Do you have the little black box that's labeled Naza PMU V2? That should have a CANbus on the side.

    Yes, I found it. I had the hex outside (in more light) and saw it. All is well, and thanks for the quick response.
