Stock ESC, Telemetry module and Minim OSD. The latter doesn't work, but opened a case with HK and they promised me they would send a replacement. After I showed them a movie of the plain grey screen it produces...

I have to say, that is a great set up, really neat. A couple of things I would look at though.
