Andy Those are pictures of my setup that I sent to Phil the other day. It isn't the Japan DVR. Think it is a clone. It is a BEVRC PV700 from bevrc.com. Only $119. Shipping was quick. And yes occasionally I do get a lockup. But not all of the time. Screen goes to static and the only way to turn it off is to pull the battery. So my learned workflow is that after I land I do the motor shutdown, reach over and turn the Record button to off and then go out and unpower the CS. If I am flying again I do my battery swap and am good to go. I power the FPV system with a separate battery so don't turn that off on flight battery swaps. And your question made me remember that it comes with a wireless remote. Valley girl DUH moment, why don't I just use that and keep in attached to my MX-20. I'll try the ESC button and let you know if that turns off the icons. And I sure do like your optimism and prognostication that the rain will stop in 2013.
