Hi everybody! I'm very happy to announce that the Remzibi OSD DIY Drones variant is now in stock in the DIY Drones store!

Our version is fully compatible with the original design and will work with Happy Killmore's config tool.

Our price is $89.99, this includes a custom FTDI programming cable and a set of pin headers.

Links and full feature list are available on the product page.

We hope you enjoy this one, and as always, feedback is welcome!

So far, the 3D Robotics version of the Remzibi OSD does not appear to be compatible with the Remzibi version of the OSD.  I'm awaiting a response from 3DR to explain how I'm supposed to load the firmware, what the buttons do and the status LED's meanings. So at this point, I don't know why it's called Remzibi's OSD.

Has anybody managed to get this running?

I cannot get it to respond to the Remzibi OSD Configuration Tool. Whenever I run the serial test I get "Failed: OSD did not respond".

Rod, have you tried to put the Remzibi in configuration mode by holding down SW1 while resetting or powering up the board? the LED should stay solid and the serial test should report the firmware version.

I'm sorry I didn't read these posts more carefully before I spent >$110 w tax and shipping for this seemingly undocumented offering from 3D Robotics.   After spending most of the day trying to figure out the pin assignments and map them onto the real Remzibi (which seems a totally different object) I have given up.  

I hope 3D has plans to document this thing, but given it was released in Dec 2011 and it is now mid March 2012, I wonder.   This is more than a little disappointing.

Thanks Sam,

I got it working. I thought I had tried all combinations of pushing buttons during reset. Now it seems to work fine. 

Tom - I can sympathise with your frustration, but this board does seem to be compatible with the OSD Config tool. Are you able to get the serial test to work correctly? I have managed to successfully download a config, and also hook up GPS, and video in/out. Still waiting on my APM...

I too am disappointed. I had to buy my own 3DR Remzibi OSD after it came out. Not once was I contacted during development. Once I got mine, I couldn't get it to work with my software. So far, I've been able to get it to program but I can't get it to update firmware.

Paul, I am horrified to hear this!
Open source or not, that is not the way you should have been treated!

I had assumed you were part of the 3DR reincarnation, esp after all the hard work you had put in over the years!

Really sorry to hear that. I think it may have been the case of a new engineer not being aware of your contribution (I wasn't involved with this project). Let me have the team get in touch with you and sort this out. We owe you a bunch of free hardware at least!
