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Here is how it looks: (This video is a bit outdated, sorry.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

      What would be awesome is a pan & tilt indicator, displaying the camera's current position relative to the aircraft. The APM has this info, but I don't think it goes over mavlink.

  • This is my latest video from arducopter apm 2.5 v 3.1.1 and minim osd 2.4  r785

    Great job guys..

    Thank you!!!!!

    • Hi Charilaos,

      Great vids thank you!

      Drift mode seems nice. I should try it :)

      If you could please try latest copter pre-release r791

      • Guys, can i use my old 2.4 customized chartset with the latest firmware?

        • Hi Zubair,

          Differences between 2.4.0.0 and 2.4.0.1 charsets are only for plane version.

          Those are chars 0xb0 and 0xb1 that are now being used in plane version (tune panel) to show sign before altitude error and air speed error reported by APM nav controller.

          I'm planning to include this in copter in next pre-release.

          The rest of the chars are the same.

          Miguel

          • Ok. I am using a plane version so i have to use the 2.4.0.1? Or i can still use 2.4.0.0?

            • Hi Zubair,

              If you are using Tune panel then you should move to charset 2.4.0.1 (just to show those 2 signs correctly).

              If not you may keep using 2.4.0.0

              Miguel

              • Hey Miguel,

                I may have missed it, apologies... can you detail what the Tune panel is doing for me?

                • The Tune function tells you the altitude error, sort of like Xtrack error in the vertical. It also shows you airspeed error.
                  I find it very useful, especially on today's mission with a large number of altitude changes in mountainous terrain. I wish I could separate the two items so airspeed error can be near the airspeed and the alt error would be by the altitude. Actually I would just turn the airspeed part off. Copter doesn't need that anyway.

                  Gabor & Miguel, can we do that?
                  • Ah, that makes sense, thanks Iam!
