A new OSD for FPV - PlayuavOSD

Hi,I want to share a new OSD - the PlayuavOSD. It is new but not totally unfamiliar. It is created by integrating a variety of excellent open-source projects. Many thanks to the developers for their efforts and dedication.

This project is licensed under CC 3.0 BY-SA and GUN v3. You can find all information about this OSD at http://www.github.com/Playuav/playuavosd, including the source code, the schematic diagram, and the configuration tools etc.

Inevitably there will be bugs and improper designs. But as an OSD, I don't think it will cause crash:-). Though most functions have been realized, there is still a lot to do, such as the implement of UAVTalk and DJI CAN. If you are interested in it, please share your opinions and suggestions. Thank you.

Config Tool download here. Manual download here.

  • Thanks Tom Ren, for explanation about it. Looks interesting. I am more interested in playUAV OSD. It seems to be something what I have been looking for, improved MinimOSD (extra). playUAV OSD looks nice graphically. I am considering to buy either mini/micro APM or pixhawk lite and would like to the most probably try playUAV OSD. Are there any special requirements for this OSD, please?

  • @Pavel Thank you for your interest in this small panel. I designed it to facilitate the use of OSD. It can implement minimosd features when working with the modified APM firmware. There is a detailed Manual for it, please read it here: http://www.playuav.com/download/apmplus/apmosd_manual_en.pdf Currently there is only Chinese interface. I will add the English interface soon. You can find the schematic diagram and the hacked code at: https://github.com/PlayUAV/ardupilot Please read the readme_playuav.md file of the repository for more information.

  • Could somebody explain what is this module, please? Is it related to PlayUAV OSD or is this something different, please?


  • This is available now on goodluckbuy here

  • I've bought it right now using a taobao agent! I've been waiting for a graphical OSD for APM for a long time. It will look really cool for sport fpv planes (acro, edfs, etc).

  • @River Bian

    Thank you. The channel values for video switch and page switch are obtained from FC via mavlink or UAVTalk, not the receiver.

  • @Chris Anderson, @ Adrián Nagy Hinst, @Talon Six
    Thank you all! The hardware is sold at Taobao.com, the largest C2C online retail platform in China. Currently it might not be convenient for international players to buy from Taobao. Hopefully after the release of the schematic diagram,international manufacturers will manufacture the OSD board. We will be glad to provide help whenever needed.
  • You can buy here -  http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.p1gcoZ&id=4475...

    It cost you around $30 USD

  • Great! it is so nice to work with multi platform and protocol. But i feel uncertain if put OSD board intergrated into ground receiver, rather then  on  vehicle, it should be better. :)

  • That is a great looking interface.  Very well done!
