The Walkera Rodeo 150 is a small RTF racing Quadcopter (drone) that was officially released mid-2016. It's a blast to fly. I blogged about it here: http://www.rc-cam.com/forum/index.php?/topic/4100-walkera-rodeo-150-racer-drone/ But the Rodeo 150 doesn't have an OSD (on screen display) to show battery voltage, flight time, and my ham call sign. When I fly FPV I like to see those things. Plus I like being able to change PID parameters using the OSD. So naturally I decided to add it. The Rodeo's FC (Flight Controller) runs on BaseFlight/Cleanflight firmware which supports the popular MinimOSD board. At first glance the OSD's installation seemed impractical due to the limited space in the Rodeo. Fortunately the MinimOSD is now available in a tiny version (16 x 16 mm) called the Micro MinimOSD. Although a tight squeeze, there's just enough room to fit it inside the canopy. Cost is under $10 USD from eBay and other online suppliers.
