The resistors can pretty much be "any resistor". I recommend 1% for the 3.3K and 10K resistor used for voltage-divider, but except for that the values and ratings are not very critical.
If it is worth it please attach.

Note: All of the resistors listed in the BOM are 1%.

I forgot to tell all ----

In the Mouser Project I listed --- I used the smaller SMD 16MHz & 27MHz crystals which, in the above posts, were Dennis's earlier called out choices. So, there should not be the too big part for too small pad problem noted by several sufferers. :-P

The 1% resistors was just a general note

Great with the updated crystals. I've added a note on the digikey-list to avoid further problems.

Thanks!

Looking forward to see some builds

Hey all!

Is is possible to connect a pressure sensor like the common BMP085 to the OSD and enable it in the code? Its very cheap and a very nice add-on for a quad-flier instead of an GPS. The calibration can be done every time the OSD is started.

Take care,
Carl

Thanks for the heads up! I will ask him. I was looking through the official code and couldnt find any pressure related data.

Yes, already implemented. You will get a much better altitude read-out with the BMP085. Especially near ground / your landing zone, which is very nice for night flying approaches. The algorithm isn't very good for high altitude flying, though...

Year as mentioned, BMP085 is already implemented (see post #1)

With default settings, it will automatic detect BMP085 at start-up and replace GPS-altitude with pressure-altitude and show lift/sink and the bar.

Have you added anything interesting? Version 5 is quite old, a lot of things have been improved since.

By the way, the new boards with ISP-header is a lot better to work with. Just had to program one without ISP-header yesterday, what a PITA

Ahh, I can see now that im in the wrong thread The question was meant for your other OSD project: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1473207 The arduino open source. Im posting there aswell.

Is it possible to buy a soldered OSD MAX7456 version from any of you guys by the way?

Regards,
Carl

No, I'll make a few, maybe in the first run 2 or 3 boards fully populated..And I'll sell them for an outrageous amount of money (just kiddin', the price will be right )..but of course they'll be more expensive than the bare parts since I have to account in some transportation costs and some profit for my work, and some beer for the author of the project .

Muerzi I'll have one board for myself so that I can load your videotelemetry code later on it :P
