Questions about an OSD for my ZMR250 build...
I'm building a ZMR250 with the following specs:
ZMR250 250MM mini quadcopter frame kit x 1
Dragonfly MC1806 2300KV Brushless Motorx 4 (2cw+2ccw)
Dragonfly 12a ESC built-in 5V/2A BEC x 4
Dragonfly 5030 CW/CCW props x 8 pairs
Naze32 Acro Funfly flight controller
SONY Effio-e 4140+811 1/3 CCD 2.6mm Lens 700TVL camera x 1
AOMWAY 5.8g mini 200mw 32CH transmitter x 1
Futaba T8J controller
Futaba R2008SB receiver
I'm looking to add an OSD. My research has lead me to the Micro Minimi OSD, but I have a few questions:
1. The voltage required is 5V. Do I need a standalone BEC, or can I wire it to one of my ESCs?
2. Which firmware should I choose? From multirotomania.com, they have the following options:
MinimOSD-EXTRA for ArduPilot
MWOSD v1.4 for CLEANFLIGHT 1.9
MWOSD v1.4 for BASEFLIGHT
MWOSD v1.4 for MultiWII 2.4
MWOSD v1.4 for Stand Alone use with no flight controller
3. Do I need the FTDI programer? I think this is only needed to change firmwares, but I'm not sure.

This is an INTERNATIONAL forum. Please allow the Earth to turn at least Once to allow everyone in the World a chance to read your post.
But in the mean time some brief answers:
1- 5V from FC is what I use. FC powered from BEC in ESC or external.
2- The version that matches the Firmware loaded in the FC board. You list "Naze32 Acro Funfly flight controller " but not what firmware you will run.
3- Yes, you need an USB to serial adapter that is able to program Atmel processors under the Arduino IDE. It does not need to have the FTDI Chip but must work with Adrduino.
Go read the Arduino web site to learn what and how.
There is also a micro minimOSD thread in the mutltirotor electronic forum. Go read that thread.
