PPM output

Am I right in saying I will only need one lead from the RVOSD to the Dragonlink rx?

Thanks,

So now the BIG question, and I haven't got one so I haven't tried it...

Say I were to use a 4channel PPM enabled receiver, seeing as the PPM is carried on one channel, would that then operate, for example, all the necessary channels out of RVOSD and leave the other 3 channels available for use (provided channel mapping is done on Tx of course)

Just a thought :)

Yes of course. You can assign every channel on the PPM string to RVOSD. But all the channels are also available on the regular receiver outputs.

Hi . I am still confused about the PPM setup. I have read and re-read the instructions. I have RVOSD v5 and a PPM reciever, and I want to use RTH.
Sorry if this is answered somehere else in this forum, but I am getting no valid results on the forum search.
If I choose to route the primary flight control outputs and the throttle from the reciever through the RVOSD, do i still have to configure the PPM channel mapping in the RVOSD?
Secondly How do i actually set up loss of signal to engage the autopilot since I am not using PCM?
Confused!

Thanks

Have you done the R/C Wizard ? If you turn off the Tx, RTH should be activated - remember to remove the prop before testing.

Are you unsure, if you should enter the "PPM Configuration" menu ? As I remember, you have to enter this menu to do some settings.

On page 4/4 you have to set "Rx input type" to "Combined PPM", else it will not work with PPM.

So I have just got my OSD and am a bit confused. Do I actually gain extra functions from the unused ports on my ppm receiver? Since there is now throttle, elevator, aileron and rudder going through ppm can I plug another servo into those ports and have it do something completely different?
Probably sounds silly, but trying to get my head around this ppm thing:)

Sure you can assign a fonction to each of the other outputs of your PPM receiver, I assigned a switch on my TX to activate a buzzer but you have to tell the RVOSD which output it is, you do so in the RVOSD menu using its remote control.
