Flight Controller with OSD etc


I have recently built a SkyShadow S800 wing (Banggood RTF kit).

I am interested in upgrading the flight controller to one with On Screen Display (such as false horizon) and other features such as GPS/Return To Home.

What are the suggested options?

There are two ways to go basically:

PNF way, where the setup time is reduced to minimum, but is a bit more expensive like:

F2S Flight Controller with M8N GPS

Or the DIY way, where you need to deal with soldering and software like inav. It require more setup time, but is rather cheap.

Omnibus F4 V2.1 Flight Controller


Ublox NEO-M8N Flight Controller GPS


Mini Micro JST 1.0mm SH 6-Pin Connector Plug


The choice is yours, I tried both ways, and both have the good and bad points.

Best regards

Cheers. Might try the easier/more expensive way first.

Expensive and inexpensive ways outlined here:

EagleTree or something similar: $150+

Flip32 / MWOSD + GPS: $17 + lots of soldering

I too want to get instrumentation for my FPV.

Chris, I didn't see any direction home arrow. Is that feature available. Have you tried a wider angle lens?

Return home and the return home direction is available on the Flip32 + MWOSD via the iNav flight software and MWOSD software, but I do not have it enabled. I have not gone beyond LOS with this setup. Same thing for the EagleTree system - it can do it, but I don't have it turned on.

The lens is listed as 'wide angle lens' in the item description, but Banggood has stopped selling it, so the old web page is gone.

The viewing angle was a little tight for my liking so I upgraded to this:

I just received the F2S FC (with GPS and Galvanometer?). Anyone know where I can source instructions in English?

There is no English manual. Anyhow, 99% of the information regarding this flight controller is on its dedicated thread.
