I have started to add functions to MinimOsd code.

At first i did it for myself only. Added many functions i thought i need. Then opened this thread.

after a while, Pedro and later Miguel came, and things started to happen fast. :D

They have optimised the code and added even more things to it.

They have worked hard on CT, and it became a great tool!

Thank you Bough! :)

By now MinimOSD-Extra got a pretty advanced OSD.

Here it is in action:


- Changeable unit measurement (US, metric)

- Airspeed

- Home alt

- Battery Percent

- Battery used mah

- Current Draw

- Time From Startup (cleared at takeoff to show exact flight time)

- OSD Menu

- Variometer

- Wind horizontal speed and direction, and also the average wind speed of the last few minutes. 

- OSD on/off

- Switchable secound screen

- WP distance

- WP heading

- Crosstrack error

- Warning messages for Lost GPS fix, Stall, Overspeed, battery volt, battery Percent, RSSI

- Efficiency, glide distance & thermic notifier. 3 in one panel

- OSD Brightness

- HAM Call Sign

- After flight summary

- Trip distance

- Temperature

- Smoothened horizon

- Real heading


- Vertical speed

This functions can be turned on and off, and placed on different screens now, by the Config. tool.

Also RSSI, switching mode and channel and unit measurement, Stall speed warning, Overspeed warning, Battery warning volt, Battery percent warning, RSSI warning,  can be set in new Config Tool.

We built in a new way of setting video standards. Now OSD does not guessing anymore :). You can set it fixed from CT. It is in "Video Mode" menu.

Here is how it looks: (This video is a bit outdated, sorry. I will make a new one soon.)

Thanks Miguel. I tested Send TLog and it works. I wish there were a way to start/stop the Tlog. Its not really an important function and not worth putting precious development time into. It would make the feature more useful though.

Still, I'm just happy its working so I can bench test my screen layout without reattaching to the APM and booting up the plane.

Wheyy I have it working. My problem was my programmer wasn't actually giving 5v. I went out for a fly and loved it although I'd really like a distance above home tab. Is that possible already and I'm just being a fool? I also want to get rssi working but I can't seem to figure that one out :( ahh we when I have time i crack on with it. Thankyou

Glad you got it sorted too Robert seems like the 5v is critical for updating the characterset in the unit!!


Hi guys!

So i flashed r800 on my MinimOSD but i noticed that Lat/Lon and some other values don't have their labels on the left, is this normal?

Maybe the idea is to save space on the screen for values that are self explanatory.


Yours is the same?

Gábor is that how it should look now?

Exactly. For 4 panels you can turn it on and off using CT. Others are fixed.

Ok thanks, just wanted to make sure :)

Btw great work guys, i love the OSD so much :)

Gabor, Miguel, may I ask you to include hdop value into the next release? Thank you! 

It is. If it is higher than 2 than gps icon blinks.


And a height relative to home function :)


That is also in.
