Sounds great
Just order some boards and let's see them in action! Perhaps you will get yours up and running faster than me.

Sure thing.. The solderings looks a bit messy, but the SMD-components (resistors and caps) is connected directly.

Dennis: Does your new OSD design handle 4S lipos? The Simple OSD design from Flytron has voltage dividers that handles 14.8 V, but many other OSD boards just handle up to 3S.
The on-board regulator on the Arduino can't handle 4S without getting pretty hot. Can't tell you if it will get too hot, but I would suggest using a 5v BEC/UBEC connected directly to Arduino Vcc. The voltage-divider resistors should just be changed to match you input-voltage and you should be good to go
