i think there is better choices than rpi 

why not putting something really powerful when you can do 
and weight is not really big deal in comparison of the hardware specs
also if you can make HD FPV link it is going to be really good 
and COFDM is the best modulation i think

Hi Daniel Agar after you and many other people's requests we have changed airspeed sensor to MS5525, and 8 channel main PWM output we added on board)

@Tomi -- that link to the Greek guy who did the Pi OSD seems to be an abandoned project that is not Open Source. Are you using this currently?

Hi Marc Dornan ,  we are currently working on HD video transmitting via low cost Wi-Fi. We will put Telemetry data over the video , it is much easiear working with digital transmition. I will post about it in upcoming month

Hi Marc,

I am duty travel. So don't have a good connection. I will post more details when I am back. Basically;

It is based on OpenGL layer running on a different layer than video source (layer 999 ex. So it is highly dependent on BCM chipset features) any video source (v4l, pivideo ) which use layer 0 should work with my setup. 

PS: it is optimized for analog video out. (720x480)
