Please can you help, I got the HobbyKing E-OSD and OSD Hook Up Wire Set. I want to install this on my racing quad, with my 600 TVL Camera, Immersion RC TX and Fatshark Goggles. I cannot unfortunately work out how to set this up, any advice or guidance would be hugely appreciated. It doesn't seem as simple as just using these hook up wires to make it work.
Thanks so much for the help. Unfortunately I am a newbie and totally clueless with regards to the diagram, I have the hookup set, so I was wondering if someone could help point me in the right direction on how to connect it all up?
Hi Eduardo, thanks again for the help. I am running a Hobbyking BlackWidow 260 Racer. Running with stock batteries and Turnigy nano-tech 1300mAH 3S. Fatshark Predator V2 Goggles, was using the stock camera but now I am using the a 600TVL SC2000 RunCam camera. Everything is hooked up using the standard cables for the fatshark, and the standard setup of the Blackwidow. I am able to fly FPV so it's working nicely. I purchased the OSD Hook Up Wire Set in hope that it would be easy to add the OSD, but unfortunately as mentioned I am confused on how to connect it all up from here. Thanks again for the help and please just let me know if you have any further questions regarding the setup?
Thanks for the info Ashley. To implement this setup, there are two different ways I can think of. To cut the "hookup wire set" and splice the wires, or to solder it directly to the connector pins. To splice the wires, you have to cut the video and the ground going between the camera and the transmitter. Here, you connect the two video wires you just cut, and also include the video wire going to the hookup set. You do the same thing with the battery side. The second way, which I recommend (it requires some skill and precision though), is to solder directly to the pins. When you flip your video transmitter over, you will see that where the connectors plug in, there are some pins coming out on the other side, soldered to the board. Cut both wires from the hookup set in half (the video with ground and the battery with ground). Then strip the ends and pre-solder the tips. Now, just find the pin that matches the connector (video, battery, and both grounds) and solder the wires there. Make sure nothing is touching the adjacent connectors.Then plug in the OSD and everything else, and test to see if it works. While I suggest to do this at your own risk, DIY stuff is really cool. Please let me know if you need clarification with something or further help, please let me know.
Fits pefect into my Beast GR-18 (between the bottom plates)
Just got mine. Works fine. It is worth the price. Pretty simple to monitor FPV pack battery or motor battery (if under 3S). There are some interesting projects to do RSSI monitor (check rcgroups). You have to to make a Y connection between camera wire and tx wire to the OSD (video input) i.e camera signal and tx signal going into video input on the OSD. Gnd can come directly from pack.
