    I now have the iosd mini and want to install it today.
    One problem. The instructions say to go to www.dji-innovations.com and download the softawre.
    Ok. So where is that software?
    I have found several videos, but no software.
    http://wiki.dji.com/en/index.php/IOSD_mini_Setup
    This page says the same thing. Still no software.

    I also have the fatshark attitude goggles.
    My transmitter on the bird is the dji avl58 system.
    On what channel do I put the bird's transmitter to send to the goggles and monitor?
    The avl58 system has 32 channels, a,bc,d 1 - 8, while the goggles only have 7 channels.

    My monitor is the boscam 7".
    I am assuming that both the goggles and the monitor will receive the same signal at the same time.

    That thread does not answer either of my questions.

    I have now learned that both avl58 and fathsark attitude do in fact use the same channels.
    The documentation for the fatshark attitude says it transmits on channel 7 (5860mhz) and the avl58 can also transmit on the same frequency.
    So that question has been answered, I hope.
    We shall find out later.

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink...

    You might want to read the second post in that thread.

    The Fatshark is not transmitting...it's only receiving. They do not use the same channels - hence Fatshark's warning:

    "Note: Compatibility is only guaranteed with Fat Shark and ImmersionRC transmitters." (http://www.fatshark.com/uploads/pdf/1720-2.pdf)

    The iOSD Assistant software is on the Phantom 2 downloads page. Here's the installer you need: http://download.dji-innovations.com/dow ... er_4.0.zip

    The FatShark goggles will not work with the signal broadcast by the AVL58 as they use different channel groups within 5.8GHz. However, you can connect the video output from the boscam monitor to the video input on the goggles to see the same thing in both (the goggles and the monitor will both use the receiver in the monitor)

    Thanks.
    I thought I could use the goggles through the monitor.
    That would save having to rig up two Tx units.
