    I have a black pearl monitor and iosd. I noticed on the 2nd and 3rd flight that I had a flashing plug symbol in the top right of the screen. Is that just showing that the go pro is plugged in? I could not find anything in any manuals.

    I don't have a black pearl, but I would guess that symbol means the monitor battery is getting low..?

    Everything was fully charged. I am guessing its the gopro OSD showing that its plugged in.

    Can you take a shot of the icon you mean? It might be the one indicating the gopro is charging (which it will do when connected to an H3-2D/H3-3D or another gimbal with a separate power lead for the camera).

    It is indeed showing the GoPro status. You can go into the GoPro and turn off the On Screen Display to prevent cluttering up your iOSD display.

    I figured. Thanks. I will leave it on because it also shows if wifi is on or off. Good double check.
