Yes they do but we are not talking about fighters jets instead we are talking about little foam model planes. Some people love it perhaps from their video game background but not even licensed pilots fly around looking through a maze of data on the windscreen. It can work to have the critical on the screen but thats a tiny amount of the total. I use the RVOSD which imo is the best on the market and use the least possible overlay and It is all turned off when I would rather see what I'm doing.
No one size fits all however but I doubt that another new OSD with more data on the screen is going to find much consumer demand.
