Not sure where you live, but you can pretty much buy everything within the States and get it it within days.

OKe, im done for today!
I connect everything solder it do FC. Get motors works. Get Camera works, but now i have realy bad and blurry image, need to check connection of wires tomorrow.

So curent Issues are

1.) I cant get receiver works.
FrSky R-XSR Ultra SBUS/CPPM D16 16CH Mini Redundancy Receiver 1.5g for RC Multirotor FPV Racing Drone

I tried to flash this via taranis. But I dont think it works. When I run this with fs pressed. I got only three solid lights. nothing blinking. I tried to frask internat transmiter in my taranis, no luck to. So I just use temporary my FRSKY XM+ with LBT firmware.

2.) FPV image is weird colored, , when I run mottors. This can be caused because of bad connection after resoldering? will check.

3.) cant see Main Batt Voltage on OSD. I can see only flight mode ATM.

If your FPV image gets bad when your motors spin up it is because of electrical noise generated by the motors turning. The best way to eliminate this is by using a capacitor on the power leads of the ESCs. A good quality 'low ESR' capacitor (rated at 330uf 35v) on each ESC should help.

Also make sure that the VTX and Camera share the same Video GND pad, using common GND for video can cause problems, I can explain but it will take a few paragraphs! Rolleyes

Re OSD voltage - Where is your OSD coming from, Camera, VTX or FC? If you are using a regulated 5v pad to power the OSD, it might not display voltage at all, because it is regulated, not battery voltage? It may just be that you need to enter the OSD menu to select what info to display, strange that Battery voltage isn't a default though?

Ye but as I said, the fpv image was great, but after some rewiring and resoldering was totalny psycho. weird colors etc.  will try to change the ground wiring. 

I think OSD coming from FC. But im bit confused with al those OSDs..

Are you using a PDB to power the FC?

Oke, Im giving this up. after last resoldering. I just wanna test if the signal is better or not. Connected the battery, and when im tryin to move the camera, ground cable just crack at the soldering and smash to to FC.. No VTX signal at all.

Is there any debug mode so I can get if the camera/vtx is still alive or not?

FC works ok,
RX works ok

dont know how to test VTX / camera atm..

Edit:  I can switch channels, and frequencies on VTX. So  VTX is probably alive. Soooo camera died? O_O
