Adding extra functions to MinimOSD

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:

Added:

- 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

- RSSI

- 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Here is how it looks: (This video is a bit outdated, sorry.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

Username: MinimOSD_Extra

Password: Top_Secret

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! :)

Enjoy

          • 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.

      • Gábor!! It's so good to see you here. I hope all is well with you and your family. I miss the great discussions we used to have on this thread. You put in so much free personal time into this project, and I appreciate you every time I fly.
        It doesn't look like anyone has risen to fill your spot after you left. The Github site is dead.
        • Hello Iskess,


          Yes it was a long time since! :)


          I cannot promise these days. I am very occupied.

          Also have a 7 month old daughter! She is my hobby now! ;)


          However i was able to build a plane but haven't fly it yet. Just showed the R/C airport to it once so they can be friends, but that was all my activity on flying since almost 2 years now. :(

          Best regards,

          Gábor

            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!

  • can someone compile this to run at baud 19200 or tell me where i can fine the source code for MinimOSD_Extra_R800 plane

  • For anyone looking for a firmware that utilizes the new micro board aux pins, (such as PWM RSSI!) then check out this branch.

  • HI, 

    I am trying to add the efficiency widget but I cannot see it on the OSD screen. How can i know what is the problem?

  • 100KM

    There seems to be a bug with the Config Tool V 2.4.0.1 Pre release r788 (the one that's available in the R800 download link at the top of the post).

    The tool does not open an .osd file that has Channel 8 selected for RSSI.

    I debugged this using a merge tool and as soon as I set the line: RSSI Enable Raw 0 to RSSI Enable Raw 8 The config tool can no longer access it. Workaround is to open the osd file in a text editor and change the value from 8 to 0 and save. Then, in the config tool, just change it again.

  • Is it possible to make MinimOSD show warnings which are visible for e.g. ground station (reason for arm fail, failsafe event etc)?

    • Also looking for this option.
