I think I'll push this thread to the first page again Black Stork was the first OSD I tried, but it didn't always work as I wanted. I had problems with the home arrow telling me I was millions miles from home And the recorder lost some of the info (cutting the sides). I bet that could be fixed with another recorder or firmware updating the BS, but then I would have to buy the firmware upgrade key for 30...

Anyway, at 130 you compete with "poor mans-OSD" and Simple OSD XL (both are cheaper and the firmware upgrader key is included) . Is it a way to firmware upgrade the BS2? Is there a way to show RSSI or customize what info the OSD will show? Can you show us some menus and different screen layouts? how do the three buttons work? It's not a big step up to Ez OSD (160-170) and with the Dragon selling for 100 (not including GPS and current sensor, but supports RTH/RTL, built in glide slope indicator when connecting GPS..) I think BS2 will have a hard time making it in this game. the PNP users become soldering wizards pretty fast if they don't want to use all their money on ready-made stuff. that beeing said I like the slim design current sensor and wondering why BS is the only one using this type of design.

I hope we will see more videos of BS2 very soon

Hi,

I wish BS II all the best, but don't think I'll be buying.

I had the original Black Stork, but found the after sales support lacking and despite many attempts by lots of people they never really responded to folks complaints/suggestions. I remember issues regarding text running off the screen.

It seemed they were only ever interested in sales.

Hmm.. well... doesnt look like that went too well then...

Back to the drawing board? Dunno, but i think the screen layout is quite nice.. and yeah, would be interesting to see if there are other layout options?

Cheers

Andy

All, not sure wich kind of problems you have with the first black stork, but the characters off screen issue was solved in the 1.5 firmware, it was not a real issue cause this behaviour was happenning in some lcd screen, never in Fatshark googles. Regarding support www.fpvsystems.com will give best possible support in all products we sale including BSII OSD. The firmware is upgradable using the same USB key used by Black Stork.
The buttons are used to move between the setup menus or fly without the need of having and RC receiver / transmitter channels ocupied. It's just plug&fly.
For any question or clarification please send an email to sales@fpvsystems.com

Thanks for the offer but nothing can save that poor OSD now.. My plane landed in salt water. It sleeps with the fishes now Not the OSD fault. One of the mountains were moving to quick and got in between me and my plane. Damn those mountains!

Changing characters set

I'm a new user of this OSD, did no play much with it so far as I have hard time reading the small characters specially on clear background.

Is there a way we can get thickers or bigger characters set ?

Thanks

Ive got the BSII in mine right now, wouldnt recommend it to be honest, its unreliable at best.

My vario has disappeared totally, depending on how if feels that day it will tell me LOS, No customer support. Comes with firmware upgrade needed which means buying the $30 usb key...........why ? I bought a working OSD why do i have to pay a extra 30 just to get it to work properly ?

It says its going support antenna tracking, but when ? No way of finding out.

When you fly far away you depend a lot on the reliablity of your OSD for information. With this one i cant depend on it, thats bad
