Hi Everyone. Above is an intro video to the minimosd. It still needs a tiny bit of tailoring but I figured I would send it out to the community for review. A video series like this could be beneficial for our community to grow in the future. Open to adding on a distributor logo for some help supporting my own hobby/builds.

Of course the video is open to criticism and input. They are compiled from scratch in Adobe After Effects/Premiere.

Add my name to the growing list of users who would like to see the addition of a customizable 6 character static line of text. In order to comply with HAM radio broadcast rules we must transmit our call sign along with the video signal at regular intervals (static display would be fine). If your like me and you want to do FPV along with other things you have a limited number of choices for frequencies. In my case I'm using a 2.4GHz Futaba 8FG RC transmitter, 900MHz X-Bee telemetry system. For commonly available video transmitter/receiver sets that leaves 433Mhz, 1.2GHz, 1.3GHz and 5.8GHz all of which require a HAM radio license to operate. In my case I had to choose 5.8GHz because I wanted to use the wireless receiver compatible with my FPV equipment and that only comes in 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz. Since I'm using 2.4GHz for RC Control that rules out that freq.

So It would be great to be able to add this to the feature set for the next revision of the OSD code.

BTW Thanks for a great product and all your hard work!

I have my OSD working and it is reading data from MAV link, but will not display over video. With camera not connected all is good, but with camera plugged in it will not display OSD?

Any ideas?

I was having the same problems with the 'error entering font mode no data'. I switched from my laptop to my desktop and then it worked.  Maybe it was the usb voltage and/or driver issues?
