  • so the small white thing on the OSD is a button, that might be it. Than I will order it without getting anything else.

    I don't know if it's overlay data will pass along to the 7" monitor without a main signal from the receiver but I will try and hope it will increase the signal power ...

    Anyway , since I made the CP and SKP antennas I have dropouts very very rarely, huge diference from stock rubber duck antenna to CP ones

    thank you.

  • Yes, I believe you just push the little white button to change position of the data on the screen.

    Sorry, it is the E-OSD and G-OSD that is reprogrammable with an usbasp.


    I don't think having the OSD fed from the vehicle will help you avoid blue screen as it is just added to the existing signal.

  • But do you know how I can configure it ? does it have pins so I can connect a USBasp AVR Programming Device or something similar ?

    I don't need any fancy feature from it as I already have MinimOSD on my tricopter, I just want to be able to move the values printed by HK mini OSD in an empty zone on the screen and can't find any info about how to do it.

  • My problem with them is that I went to mainly 4s batteries and they don't handle them.

    Flash them and get all kinds of new functionality.


  • Guys, How can I configure it, to move the displayed data in a different part of the screen? as I want to use it on my GroundStation so my 7" monitor will not turn into "No signal  Blue Screen" when the signal of the video is droping for a short time.

    I want to know if I need to buy something else, there is an IR remote from hobbyking but it has a 3 wire jack, don't think it will work on this.

  • Here is a hook-up wire set: http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=19434

  • I use it on smaller multicopters to monitor my flight pack and video battery level. Works great!
