    I see posts where people are starting they were locked on to x number of satellites. How are they determining this number?

    You might say what bird you are talking about. The vision guys are just looking at the number of Satellites on their phone.

    Most of us with non Vision Phantoms use the iosd mini. It adds telemetry data to the FPV video feed.

    That makes sense. I have a FC40. No telemetry. Thanks for the help.
