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)
- Home alt
- Battery Percent
- Battery used mah
- Current Draw
- Time From Startup (cleared at takeoff to show exact flight time)
- OSD Menu
- 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
- 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Here is how it looks: (This video is a bit outdated, sorry.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.)
The MinimOSD-Extra project is here: Link
This project is the developing version of the official Arducam OSD located here: Link
The latest stable version is: 2.2
The latest version can be downloaded from here: MinimOSD-Extra R800
CT is included. (The FW for Plane, Copter, Character upload and the character file is in the "FW & Char" directory inside CT directory)
We are sharing it to see videos you make using it! :)
I am glad!
I have also enjoyed watching all the videos here!
I still go back to some and watch them again!
I wish you many nice landings!
The variable you could use to debug is: chan7_raw
it is uint16_t
Add it to any panel temporary so you can see if data is coming.
Welcome back Gábor! Good luck with your new hobby :) Hope to see you around! You're the reason a lot of us are in APM!
Hi Gabor hope you are well and enjoying your new baby hobby good luck to you all. Am now running two Minim OSD with Extra installed and working great thanks to you!! BIll
You need to flash the special version that lets you flash a character set, upload the character set, and then flash version r800 or later (they are so big that they do not allow character set uploads).
Do have the link to that special version?
I have been using Night Ghost I Am's solution for around 3 weeks now, works totally flawlessly. Insane amount of features have been added and there is still space for more.
Personally i love the TLog player, so i can see how the screens look with actual data flowing on them while testing on the bench, and i love that i can have 4 screens when i need, usually using 2 and a blank one for a cleaner FPV output. Having the option to change OSD settings without a computer such as battery warning levels for different size batteries is great too. Being able to see the battery level in icon form saves so much time, i can see instantly how much battery i have left without having to check the mah or %.
I can only agree with JohnEx, so much better than the Semi-abandoned R800.
For forgot to mention auto-baud. I used 115200 for telemetry on my APM, as that was the only speed I could use to reliable download tlogs using 3DR radio clones. Any slower, and it would fail. No more recompile for me. This firmware just works with auto baud-rate detect.
Supposedly supports the Micro-MinimOSD voltage/Current pins as well.
Been playing with in on plane, and I really like it. Finally we got an active developed product, and a developer that listens. And something that compiles with Arduino 1.6.8 out of the box.
Nice to see progress in this area, many of us use telemetry, either on goggles or screen.
