R6008HS Reciever wich has a data output. is this a serial output? or is it some Futaba specific output?

What modifications do i have to do on my OSD when it arrives to hook it up with my camera and video tx (no GPS, no Current sensor)?


Renatoa is right, you are restricting the usefulness of what DOSD+ can do if you don't connect it to your receiver, but in answer to your question YES you can set up this way if you want. I don't know about your radio but I get PPM from my DX6i trainer socket and it will plug straight into DOSD+ PPM input

for connections you will need to buy yourself some connectors for headers. PPM uses a 3-way just like a servo connector, the Video connector uses 4-way. for powering the board you can use 2-way or JST or connect an unused servo wire from your reciever to the DOSD and jumper the servo power to the power pin by soldering under the board or using a wire with connectors you can make.

look at the first post on this thread there are links to a board connection diagram, you can see what you will need. I used these:
