Just did a quick test...

Lots of weird lines on the screen
OSD test (0 min 14 sec)

Not perfect yet, but getting there.

Well, a friend mentioned it would be nice when flying through clouds
Just need to test if an accelerometer is good enough.

The MPU6050 are very cheap and there is a Gyro all in one package.

Ordered... At that price I can just as well use both accelerometer and gyro

Dennis,
Is this still the same project that we started this thread with as in this schematic? -
Thanks,
Rick

No sorry, it's with a MAX7456 OSD chip instead. It gives a lot of extra CPU-time to do whatever you want

Hi Dennis,

Would it be possible for you post the schematic and code you are working with so far, even though it is not polished ?

Even though it is not perfected....it is fun to follow

I have a https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9168 so maybe I could incorporate it also for others to follow

Thanks again for sharing,

Rick

The breakout-board from sparkfun will be compatible and just needs a few wires to an Arduino or similiar

I'm not quite sure what I'll do with the project yet, but there is already quite a few MAX7456 OSD's out there if you need some inspiration.

Dennis,

Your open source work inspires me (not sure about the others !! -
I have been looking for a simple schematic (as you say "needs a few wires" ) and small piece of code (that works to connect an arduino to this sparkfun board to get me started. Can't find one !

+1 to that!

I would like to know how to connect the few wires from the MAX7456 to an uno and a very simple code that would insert something like "hello world" onto the screen.

Remember the reset-line must be pulled high on your board.

The code from Sparkfun gives a good idea about the communication with MAX7456. It's not copy-paste compatible with Arduino, but close

I plan to release everything sooner or later, but not until I have a descent version available.

Schematic will be available when the PCB arrives and have been confirmed to work

Listed at the bottom of the page is some sample code and a schematic.

Well, I have looked at the schematic and code at the bottom of Sparkfuns page but it appears I am missing some knowledge on connecting it and getting the code to compile with the arduino - So I am looking for some help Have you got something that works with the arduino and sparkfuns board?
