    I had a thread about this but I can not find it. Hence the new thread. Thought I had the problem solved! But no. The problem is: When I first turn on the monitor, with the transm on and th drone on, I get the flight info from the IOSD mini. When I turn the camera on the picture is stable, but the info from the IOSD mini starts rolling or flickering. I pulled the little white plug and reset it and everything was alright. Next time I flew same thing.
    Everything on same channel etc. The monitor is a Lilliput, Transmitter is a Ts5832. Get video fine.
    Any ideas? Thanks

    When the telemetry from the iOSD starts to roll does the video do the same or is it stationary? Are you using a plug n play cable between the TX and iOSD module or is the cable hard (soldered) wired?

    Jason: Only the telemetry rolls. Without taking it apart, I would say it is plug and play. I have reseated all the plugs on the outside of the hull. May have to take a look on the inside. The only thing I have added was a Flytrek data logger. However I can unplug the unit (on the outside) and it does not make a difference. Unless you have any other ideas, I will open it up and check those connections.

    Try turning on the camera first and see if that makes a difference. An yes you could have a defective plug n play cable. The only things on the outside of the P2 are the gimbal and TX everything else is inside the shell.

    My IOSD, Anti interference card and transmitter are all outside. I ill try turning camera on first, before I open the case. Thanks again
