  • Some of the arrows are not too pretty. I forgot to polish them, but that's just cosmetic
  • In my case Altitude drifted around 5 meters and home-position seemed to drift a few meters. More than plenty precision for my use, but you can try with longer delay before setting home-position if you want to get a more exact home-position.
Excellent video

Thanks. It was mainly to test/show the home-arrow, LOS, sync-detection etc. - but it should give a good idea about the OSD in action.

But off course - you already know that being the first one to test it (except a very early version I tried on a quad some months ago)

Very nice vid and test of OSD,
Yesterday tried with my MultiWii hexacopter and my wife as "Spotter" but after few second I had fear and landed , I need a wide fly area .
I noticed a heavy mess of sync not due to UHF but to strong white light.
Test inside home I had stable sinc, but outdoor in sunlight totally instable.
May be a poor and cheap camera ?

Ciao

This might already have been discussed, but just an idea around the summary screen showing up while flying. Put in a simple test to see if the speed has been less than x for a period of y, and then show it. y could be anything between 10 seconds to 1 minutes or so.

The best way (I have found) to test the sync capabilities of the OSD is simply to put a finger on the lens and remove it. The camera will not adjust instant, so when you put a finger on the lens you will shortly get very dark picture, and when you move the finger you will shortly get "totally whiteout"
I'm able to keep the sync all the way.

It will definitely not be a problem for me. I only rarely stall that much within 100 meters - but if anyone finds it useful just let me know, and I will include it in next release.

I was thinking about making an indication of the planes position - but in regard to how it's seen from the ground. This should help fly within the antennas beam if you use directional antennas. And you know what way to look for the plane

Any good ideas? I was thinking about something like this:

where the point in the middle indicate home-position. Up on the circle could then be north, or maybe the way you start to fly?

could be an issue for multirotors or helos, maybe a user setup option for x current draw for y time or x speed for y time?

It's already possible to set in the setup menu - and a "sketch" for multirotors/heli is included as well. The speed < x in x seconds is not done, but it shouldn't be necessary at all.

That sound really smart I think. Do you mind if I use this in cl-osd?

two questions:
what plane is used in the test video? I love flying wings, that's why i'm asking.

Is there any way to make this osd display in US units? could I output something to the GPS so it sends back data if feet/mph instead of metric stuff? or am I just totally wrong and it actually is already in feet/mph?

I would just test it but parts are still in the mail and my arduino died
or do I just have to learn meters/stuff like that?
