Hi guys. Question. wtf? Is there any chance the change the way the altitude is shown? I get always the damn sea-level and NOT the actual true height of my aircraft. This suck big time. Thanks a lot for any help. Greetings.
Correct. Get 2 wires ( /-) from your bird circuit board and connect to OSD V2 (i connected to V1 and nothing,but on V2 worked). This will tell you the battery voltage and feed the OSD. Connect the GPS to the OSD like the manual. Video, you have two lines of pins, one bottom and one up. If you have 4S you will have there on video pin ( ) 16.8V, pay attention if you have a sony ccd cam for example (12V) you need a step down to feed her. I use gopro (has battery, no need to feed) so i only connect (- and S) on top pins. On bottom pins you pull (- and S) to your Video transmitter. Done.
zero complaints, silly cheap for what it does. ive hacked it into my fatshark attitude system and had no probs what so ever and its installed on a dji450 flame wheel with naza m v2. im lucky here as i live at 5> than sea level and i know others want a zero point at take off but its no biggy for me. just remember what altitude you take off at..lol
im just about to purchase another for my 450 deadcat with kk2 for fpv and cant wait. putting a 600mw fatshark on it for improved distance.
all in all i would say a nice piece of kit at a great price.

Well it does what it says, is remarkably cheap, but be very careful hooking it up. In particular the voltage monitor #2.
I had hooked up the video along with the power and then plugged in a battery to the monitor v1. This burned out the power supply for the GPS.
Instructions for wiring are very poor in that they do not explain the voltages and more importantly what NOT to do. It is not intuitive!

In general its a waste of money. Text is white without black boarder so its very poorly visible. Altitude is displayed as above see level - cannot set it to 0 at current ground level. Home direction icon (actualy letter B ?!!??) inaccurate. Need to manualy set home point every time. Just hope to be able to use the gps itselve in other applications
initial lock took some time, OSD is simple and nice, let me know if you need some pics

I got a quick 15 minute flight with the OSD, so far I like it. The OSD acquired 6 satellites very quickly, set the "home" location via button-C, and took off. The display got washed out against the gray overcast sky, but against the green ground it shows very clearly in my FatShark Aviators (RCV922 AE 5G8) which have a 46 degree filed-of-view.
The CLOCK displays wall-clock time, it is not a "flight-timer" clock. Too bad, to me that would make more sense.
Under SETUP you can select speed as KPH or MPH, however the ALTIMETER and RANGE are meters only. I’d expect if you selected MPH it would display imperial units vs. metric, I’ve got some more checking to do on this.
The altitude does meters, again I wish it did feet. It also displays above-sea-level, so my "home" position is at ~350 meters, so I have to subtract that out as I fly if I want to get my above-ground-level altitude, which is what I really care about.
The "home-pointer” is unusual in the it uses a “B” as the “base” locator, but once you get used to it, it works fine. This is my first OSD, I enjoyed seeing the “B” and the plane-indicator as I went from directly overhead to ~1/2 mile out flying in a big circle.
I love the speed indicator, my 5' PeaceDrone idles along nicely ay 16-22 MPH, and I hit 50 MPH in a dive from 600’, with a tail wind, approaching m
