Does this Skylark 60A current sensor support LIPO 6-cell voltage?

I have a 6-cell T-Rex 450 FPV machine that could really use this light weight OSD but all the videos I've seen of this Skylark FPV are using 3s setups.

You can try.
3S-6s should theoretically work with the system

Thanks Skylark. The Skylark store might have the incorrect information for the 60A current sensor because it shows 4s is the maximum voltage for this unit:

Or is this a different current sensor than the one that comes with the Tiny III? But the picture of the sensor looks just like the sensor in the Tiny III product photos.

Yes , they are the same one.
We recommend using 3s/4s battery in FPV flight
But in fact , it support 3s-6s battery

ok just purchased my 1st osd and need a little help

I purchased the HobbyKing Tiny OSD which I have read is just a re-branded Skylark OSD, I wanted to verify that my thoughts on how it should hook up are correct.

here is my setup

Immerson 600mw 5.8GHz Transmitter
Fatshark googles
Ready Made RMRC-420XVN Camera

the camera has 3 lines out for video which plug directly to my existing transmitter
Red - 5v
Black - GND
Yellow - Video

and of course 2 other cables black/Red for power

* From what I have read the red 5v line will go directly from cam to the transmitter

* the black line will get intercepted between the cam and transmitter and go to the GND on the OSD

* the yellow will get cut and go in on middle pin on OSD and then leave OSD and go to Transmitter?

i have made a really crappy picture to illustrate what I have in my head is right, let me know what you think

usb-ttl cable


I have a fieyu tech usb to ttl cable it is a four pin connection red, blk, wht, grn, is it possable to use this to connect to the tiny osd? I just order a hobby king tiny osd used on ebay and it has not arived yet and I can not seem to find a upclose view of the gps port on the board to see what the conection type is? I know the cable is cheap but with shipping and time I would much rather use what I have even if I have to build an adapter plug. also when connecting the board to configure it or update firmware should the board be powered up or is it powered via the usb? 5.5v ttl or 3v ttl?


any help would be great thanks

Great OSD, especially for small aircrafts.

Is "Landing Summary" a function of distance or speed?


I'm testing Trace II in my backyard and want to make sure it's enough space to trigger landing summary.

Does it take distance from take off point or speed to get a reading on the on screen display?

Thanks guys

It should be OK, please make sure that summary function is enabled by Configuration Tool

Seems that a corner chip broke on a crash landing and the OSD is getting really hot ever since. I will try to fix this but if anyone knows what might be solution please PM me.

Thanks Skylark!

I'm actually trying to turn off the landing summary as I'm using it with Naza/GPS and it's holding position so well the Trace II thinks it's landed

Skylark is a great OSD for actually telling me altitude, distance and way to home.

Just trying to save myself a trip to the field to test for "off" 'cause I won't have a pc out there so I wanted to confirm in my backyard
