OSD System Combo: Main Board, Power Module, USB/GPS/IR/TEMP Modules w/Remote

Hobbyking today released on their website na OSD System Combo which contains a main board, power module, USB/GPS/IR/TEMP Modules with a Remote.

 

From their website:

The HobbyKing OSD Combo is a quick and easy way to add a wealth of on screen information to your FPV system. With GPS coordinates, airspeed, voltmeter, temperature, and many more display functions this OSD unit will make a great addition to any FPV setup at a fraction of the cost of other GPS OSD systems currently available. It even includes an IR sensor and remote control for wireless function control.
 
An excellent new feature of this system is the "home direction" indicator which works as follows:
"If more than 10KM/H or equivalent in MPH speed is measured by the GPS for not less
than half of a second, the system will switch the operating mode from “Landed” mode to
“Taken-Off” mode. The system will always compare between the current position
coordinate and the position measured in “Landed” mode, and calculate the “Home
Direction”, hence advises the pilot where the plane took off referencing to the current flying
heading. If you are lost during the flight, you may always fly back to the take-off
location by the referencing of home direction arrow."

Pretty good price considering the distributor lists this same package for $ 172.00.

The base combo without many of the sensors lists for 86.00, but the HobbyKing site specifically says their package includes all these sensors and GPS, remote, etc.

@Guntars:  I see that the manual does indeed mention an upcoming pressure altitude module.

Looks like they have taken it off the website. It's not in my wish list as well. That's too bad.
