MAX7456 OSD Break out board.
2 Attachment(s)
I was going to try to build and design my own OSD a year ago but never got around to it. I got a MAX7456 OSD board for it, soldered on male headers pointing down. It works just fine, I was able to use the test code with an arduino duemilanove to get all the characters on my screen. The only thing is, the C_Out trace lifted up so I had to solder on a tiny strand of copper wire. It test good for continuity though.

Spark fun wants $39 for it.


I wouldnt mind selling this for ~$25 or trade for FPV parts.

Edit: added pictures

I was thinking about using one of these to prevent the blue screen of death on my ground recorder but was/am not to sure if it would work for that...what do you think?

I faintly recall someone trying it for that but I honestly have no idea if it would work or the time to test it. (I dont have any equipment that goes blue screen) You might be better off with some sort of converter or something.

You still got the MAX7456 break out board?
If you've still got that break out, I'm very interested.

I still have it, sorta. I am in the middle of moving so it is in Ohio while I am still overseas. I will look for it when I go home in a few weeks.
