    Actually had a rainy/windy day yesterday nothanks to hurricane Florence remnants. So I got the micro minimOSD to work in standalone mode showing battery voltage. current (not life though) and its own timer display. I downloaded the firmware and used the Arduino app to make the changes to the sketch as shown in this video:
    He also explains how to use MWOSD configurator which comes with the download at a minimal contribution of US$2.99 (well worth it) to customize the display screen and upload the changes to the board. All pretty straight forward if you have used Arduino before and are familiar with serial to USB connections and firmware updates. the pic shows my setup. I used the TX5803 from my QRX350 to stream the video to my EACHINE LCD5801D to record it. It looked great. The battery voltage gain needs to be tweaked in the configurator to show correctly. There are many other features than can be adjusted and the text labels can be moved easily in the configurator also. View attachment 1662 View attachment 1662 View attachment 1661
    A connection guide can be found here:
    Minim OSD Quick Installation Guide — Copter documentation

    The author also published a second part which shows how to connect a GPS module as well:
    It's not as detailed as Part1 but will get you there. I will try to attach several of the Beitian and Walkera GPS modules that I have and see how it goes.
    to be continued...

    Cheers

    After some trial and error I managed to get the microminimOSD to work in standalone GPS-OSD mode with all of my GPS modules. I will post a detail account of it soon. But good news for all who want a separate, configurable display of some telemetry and cool flight parameters independent of and in addition to on-board telemetry.

    Decided to post screenshot anyway showing indoors 9 sats lock with a BN-880. The AMP and RSSI displays are not live, but batt voltage is.

    Cheers.
