Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.

Speed overlay unit? where?

I don't know anything about it, but maybe the simpleOSD device would do that and is very tiny (small enough for birds). Plus, they look like they are located in Europe, but hard to tell since they don't list an address.


Or, maybe the EZOSD.

He PMed me with more details, this time it's for full size racing boats, so space/weight isn't a problem. He wants speed only, no other info / text /graphics at all on the screen, apart maybe from g-force.

I suggested him an IFOSD unit I have laying around and that is capable of all that.

Otherwise actually I think the Eagletree data recorder and standard video OSD and G-expander might be able to do it too (I know you can change the text for each parameter, e.g "Spd" for speed, but I'm not sure whether it can be completely removed, and it doesn't show units).

I thought he needed it for his special bird mounted application. In this case, I'd recommend the EagleTree OSD since it can be setup to display just speed, the product has excellent factory support, and is sold everywhere. But if you think the IFOSD is a fine choice, then I suppose that is another option.
