Is there a way to connect Mini OSD directly to the main board instead the CAN BUS?
Want to strip it from the case and rather heavy cable and mount it inside.
Any ill effects of bypassing can bus?

If you have the zen muse upgrade board in your v.1 you can create a can bus connection without a pmu v.2

Also, guys have de-cased the osd mini to save some weight with or without the pmu or board mod.

I Have P2 V2 Zenmuse with anti interference board if that says anything )
Just looking at the can buss I think it serves just as connection for two different cables but I think there is something else embedded there too.
So I could just take the entire ribbon cable (can bus) out and plug OSD directly to the can bus port on main board.

I don't have experience with a P2, but the ribbon cable is just an extension, correct? You could certainly plug the mini in inside the shell where the ribbon cable connects. You can also take the mini out of the plastic case and just put it (it is a pcb) inside a piece or shrink wrap, and reduce it's weight and bulk.

Yep, thats the plan. I have to desolder the main cable and maybe use the ribbon
