    Hey everyone...

    I crashed my Phantom 2 last fall and I just got around to replacing the shell.


    When I put everything back together, I'm getting a rolling/shaking/flickering screen on my FPV. In the process of putting it back together, I added the DataLink to my setup. I tried unplugging that and it didn't seem to make any difference.

    I'd love some help!

    Or, just the link (if the other two embeds don't work!) http://youtu.be/a-qk-GSSVxU

    Hmm, looks like it is connected incorrectly.
    I would suggest that the input and output are swapped, or maybe no earth connection, that sort of thing.

    I took out the IOSD completely. I'm running everything through the DJI FPV Cable Hub.

    It's still doing it. I'm wondering if if the AVL58 is damaged?

    one of my buddies is having almost exactly the same issue... externally mounted iOSD+ AVL58 + Hub, he had a crash, and now JUST the iOSD Mini part of the FPV feed is bad, flickers and such like the OP's video. the video coming from the gopro is fine

    I feel like the AVL58 is ok... if the AVL is the problem then the whole feed would be bad not just the iOSD. So it's likely either the iOSD itself, the fpv hub, or a cable. I've had several HARD crashes and my iOSD is fine but it's mounted internally. you have a few options...

    your cheapest option is to replace the DJI FPV Hub and/or all those little cables (there's a cable pack) and hope that's the damaged part. btw I'd also go over all your cables EXTREMELY carefully and make sure there's no breaks, tears, or anything like that. especially the connection between the hub and iosd.

    Ben where are you? maybe you can find another Phantom Pilot nearby that you could troubleshoot with, swap equipment between Phantoms and see what's bad... for example if I was nearby I'd slap my iOSD in your Phantom and if that fixed it you know it's the iOSD, but if it didn't that confirms it's something else like the hub.

    IF your hub winds up being the bad part, consider swapping over to a better transmitter. You can pick up a TS353 and PnP cable for around $50 after shipping and your current antenna would be compatible (AVL58 and Boscam use same antenna connector)... but this assumes your iOSD is fine.

    I have a similar issue and was wondering if you ever resolved your problem and if so what your solution was ?
