Hi All,

Besides Jordi and HappyKillmore are there anyother DIY Drones members using the remzibi OSD?

I think that the remzibi OSD is a great low cost solution for FPV, but I am somewhat hesitant to use it with my Ardupilot due to the requirement to use remzibi's GPS which uses NMEA strings. I know that early Ardupilot software used the EM406A with NMEA strings so it might be possible to use the EM406A with the remzibi OSD. Does anyone know what GPS remzibi is using?

I did get five of the Maxim 7456 OSD generator chips to help restock remzibi's supply, but I am still hesitant to purchase his setup.

I am a Remzibi OSD user, though have not yet flown it (waiting on an order from HC)
I spent some time looking at all the OSD's and concluded Remzibi's OSD had the best feature set for its price. The recent ardupilot integration makes it even better.

More info on the GPS supplied can be found here
The same MTK chipset is used in the Locosys LS20033 GPS which most other OSDs use.
Any GPS that spits out NMEA strings at TTL levels should be compatible with the Remzibi OSD.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.

I assume that you have chosen a video transmission system to go with the remzibi OSD?

I have been looking at either the 900 MHz or the 5.8 GHz systems from the Digital Products Company. I would use the 900 MHz system without the Xbee telemetry and rely on the OSD for aircraft operational parameters. The 5.8 GHz system would be compatible with the 900 MHz Xbee telemetry, but might have a more limited range.


I have Remzibi OSD and Et OSD Pro, both have passed ground testing, but ArduPilot need more work before I fly again..
The code in ArduPilot 2.5 for Remzibi isn't complete.

Seems to me that the right way to go with Remzibi would be to scrap the gps that comes with it and code NMEA output from ArduPilot to input to Remzibi. I wouldn't want to get gps data from Remzibi because that would preclude (or at least interfere with) using ArduIMU

I thought there was a workgroup trying to figure out how to encode telemetry data in the blanking interval with Remzibi. Anybody know anything about that?

Since Remzibi has been out of stock for a long time now, I have found this board at RC Groups:




Do you think it can be used with no problems with that RCA to USB adapter? I would like to get video feed on the Mission Planner Screen.

Thank you!

You can always buy one from him directly.
I have two of them and three APMs.

I'm using 900mhz for the APM telemetry.

I'm using 2.4 ghz for my radio control.

I'm using 1.3 ghz for the video downlink.

Then my ground station retransmits it to 5.8ghz to my goggles.


I'm using this receiver -- two of them actually.  They're fully programmable and even scan.


This guy also makes some decent transmitters.  Though right now I'm using some Lawmates.

Thank you!! the link you posted is only the receiver though, i would need the whole system, I found this product:




It should work, right?
