    For one, this forum could be exponentially better with a few stickies.

    Anywho, I often see people on here mention how many satellites they are connected to. How do you find this out?

    One dude said it is displayed on his goggles... I have a P2 with a Zenmuse 2D Gimbal and Boscam FPV dual antennae monitor. Should my FPV monitor be displaying more information than the recording time?

    In NAZA mode the LED's are different... do those patterns indicate # of satellites connected?

    Thanks for any help

    If you have the iOSD Mini, this will tell you exactly how many sats you can see, displayed as an overlay on your FPV view.
    If you don't have an iOSD mini then you have to go by the lights.

    In Naza mode:

    Green - Red - Red - Red = <5 sats
    Green - Red - Red = 5 sats
    Green = Red = 6 sats
    Green = >6 sats
