" For about $300, anybody can go online and buy a personal drone with streaming, high-definition video capabilities.

"I live in Encinitas and I've gone surfing and actually seen these things up in the air. At that point though, those are just hobby-class birds," said Barter. "

Hmm ..

That would be cool....probably need to confirm with Andy to make sure it can be clashed back to the FW you need later...

it would be nice to try it out and get used to it as i have never used an OSD before....

I posted a couple screenshots a few post back in this thread .. however I am still in testing..

It's a complete rewrite of the current firmware aimed towards racing .. so the main work is in the dynamic waypoint management as well data storage and sync to the GS + GS Software + Configuration Tools ...

The basics such as Alt/Hdg/Spd/Home Arrow, etc are already fully implemented - so it's easy for me to create trunk that only displays that information.

GPS is connected via the serial interface to the MinimOSD .. which is the main data input ..

Yeah - it's pretty straight forward .. the only thing that we might encounter is that I also update the Charset in the Max7456 .. so gotta remember to flash that back as well :-)

There is the typical commentary negativity at the bottom of the page. It would be cool if you guys voiced your positive opinions as well. I am so sick of everyone painting our hobby in a negative light without any experience whatsoever. Why aren't people freaking out about people with telephoto lenses if they are so concerned about privacy? It's maddening. There are already "laws" being pushed that could really restrict our hobby, not to mention any eventual commercial opportunities.

K, rant over
