Minim OSD RSSI

Hi

Does anyone know the way to get RSSI on the minim OSD V1.1 (from hobbyking)
I have an APM 2.6 which I was hoping to use to get RSSI on the OSD from, but so far I can only see that people solder the RSSI wire to the processor with a 1kOhm resistor.

Is that the only way to do it or can I get the APM to give rssi to the OSD somehow?
Also how hard is it to solder to the processor ?

Thank you very much.

You need to connect rssi signal and ground to the corresponding pins of one of the ports designated Analog. It is very easy to solder these. A capacitor is only needed for digital RSSIs because of their pulsed nature if I got it right. Software wise you will write a parameter that defines which analog pin has the rssi.

Thank you very much that's so much more convenient, I have an openlrs receiver which gives out RSSI hoping that doesn't have pulsed output?
