Hi, I have got a S1000+ with Z15-5D and Lightbridge. The 5DSR perfectly fits with Zenmuse Z15-5D and is very well balanced (well I had to put some weight on the right arm). Communication with the drone is just perfect and recording video / making still photographs is working as well.

I have only one big, big problem. The video connection and communication of the telemetry data gets broken once the drone is airborne.

I did firmware upgrade on all components and as long the drone is on the ground everything seems to work.

Is this a gimbal / HDMI or a Lightbridge problem? I know, the 5DSR delivers a compressed HDMI signal (in comparions to the Mark III) but this should care the groundstation.

Any ideas?

Kind regards, Gerry

Hi, we turned off everything and we were in the middle of nowhere. So, there was no interference. It is strange, the video and telemetry communication with the groundstation works after a restart of all components and the connection breaks down once you are hovering in the air for a while and maybe it comes back after a couple of minutes for a very short period of time. Even with a dump terminal screen we lost the communication.

Can you do a test to exclude the problem of LB? Connect a camera into LB air end, take off the drone, check if the video would break.

Hi Candice,

it doesn't work ... even not with a MKIII. The S1000+ will go back to DJI country support today. Hope they can fix the issue soon.

Hi,
sorry for my long delay. Well, everything works fine now. There was a problem with the wire and plug to the lightbridge. Well, it was not easy to detect but it was to replace. Beside the IOS / Lightbridge app problems - everything is just perfect now. Kind regards, Gerry

Hi Mr Pacher,

Hi. The problem was the plug of the data cable of the gimbal. One of the little tinny cable was broken. Well, it was not easy to detect but every thing worked fine after changing the cable. But i changed to the new Lightbridge 2 in the meantime and everything is just perfect and a little bit less complex. Regards, Gerry

Sorry for any delay. I'm afraid you may have a different situation even though the defect seems similar, so the same solution may not work for you.
