RV OSD and Dragon OSD - so near to being Really good!
As a general observation, development on the Dragon appears to have ceased and we have the new RV OSD. Both are very capable bits of kit for what they are - an OSD with GUH feature. It is such a shame that no provision is being made for attitude feedback via a gyro board such as one made by Sparkfun.
If this was done - well its gottaa be a winning combination as a basic and cost effective autopilot??
Ok guys which one is gonna be first!!

Dragon is well conceived and super reliable, so well worth the wait. Paparazzi is there with a stable autopilot,(it must be if it can handle a Funjet!!) if you want to build it yourself and have the skills, although ready made is apparently available for $600 or so, but I feel even with the ready made version there will be specialist knowledge required and the real experts on the project aren't all that accessible for learners I have found. Once you are contributing to the project it is different I guess.
For me, one of the many good points of the Dragon is the separate GPS, which gives more flexibility in terms of installation and isolation from sources of RF interference.
