Yes and Yes!

The Dragon OSD was my second OSD. I wish I'd bought one the first time!
Small and light, 10 hz GPS and return to home failsafe function.
You can fly it literally plugged into just your gear channel (or use the flight mode switch on a DX6i to get three positions if you are going want to adjust the settings , use the autopilot and RTH). Once it's set up it's great. The RTH function is brilliant. I've watched my skywalker turn around and fly home from 1KM away. Your plane comes home and circles 100M above your home position and keeps doing it until you take control (or runs out of battery).
I've got 2 of them already.

The dogs danglies.

I've got three well two really one is in a forest due to not setting it up right.
Yes they are great but they are not plug and play.
But ask a question here and you'll get several helpful answers.

That's great to know thanks, other than the GPS unit and current sensor do you need the other one (temp).L

no you're good.
I have an artificial horizon for mine but they are not easy to get hold of. Also a pitot tube for actual air speed.
What you will need is a RX that can send PPM to the DOSD. That's the only input it takes.

Well I made it portable to put on the tank but I have just spent the last few hours installing it in the truck with a dragon link. The idea was to knock up a quick bodge to test the dragon tracker but I got carried away. suppose I had better bring it along!.

I think it's great but as the proprietor of dragonlabs.eu shop I am probably a bit biased. It isn't plug and play, and you will probably end up doing some soldering to make leads but I can help with that.

Not done much research on the osds yet but does a dx6i send the correct signal or whatever a ppm is??

Good to know your easy to get hold of.....still testing my cam and vx vt systems but I'm liking the dragon osd, just downloaded the manual so hope that should give me an idea of how hard its gonna be to sort out.

So looks like its about 211 quid for the osd kit and the stabilizer delivered .....that sounds good to me, my only concern now is finding space in the bixler and the cables required.

i'm just fitting out my Bixler 2 so is Mike.
I have cut a window out of the side under the wing to get to the space.
There is enough room for the DOSD and other wiring in there.

You don't need the stabiliser, it's just a plaything really.

It all fits in the Bix. I leave mine unglued (I prised the two halves apart) and tape it together until I havefinished fiddling with the setup.

Mudlark and I both ended up upgrading the motor and prop. Still not maidened though. Next time I open it up I will post a pic
