EAGLE TREE OSD PRO
Do you fly, drive or boat with FPV, or do aerial photography? We’re pleased to introduce the Eagle Tree OSD
Pro. The OSD Pro displays all the key information about your model’s status, and has many advanced features
such as voice alerts, high resolution raster graphics, a new “RADAR” synthetic map, “Return to Home,”
Artifical Horizon display, Acoustic Variometer, and waypoints within visual range.


I'm just looking for a simple, easy to use OSD. Is this one right for me?
The OSD Pro has many features and options that you may not need right away. But, why pay the same price or
more for another OSD that doesn't offer these features, when you can just leave them disabled with the OSD
Pro, until you need them?


How it Works
The OSD Pro is a powerful, modular, fully configurable Video/Audio On-Screen Display (OSD) device, providing
graphics, voice announcements, alarms, acoustic variometer with total energy compensation, Home Arrow, Return
to Home, Failsafe, “RADAR”, waypoints, a flight simulator for testing, and many other features.  The
information displayed can be as simple or advanced as you like, depending on how you configure the display,
and on which optional Eagle Tree sensors are connected.


What Data Parameters can be Displayed on the OSD Pro?


All parameters available with our eLogger V3 and Data Recorders + optional sensors will
be supported for display on the OSD Pro.

Here are some examples:
  • GPS Parameters (Distance to Home, Home Arrow, GPS Altitude, Ground Speed,Course, and more)
  • ElectricalParameters (Pack Volts, Amperage, RX Volts, Servo Current, Milliamp-Hours, Watts)
  • Performance Parameters(Airspeed, Barometric Altitude,  Climbrate, Variometer,Temperatures,
    RPM, G-Force, EGT, Jet ECU Status, servopositions)
  • Receiver Health (Dropped Frames, Antenna Fades, Missed Packets – requires Spektrum or
    JR FlightLog compatible Receiver)
  • Call Sign, and many more
The OSD PRO advanced features include "RADAR," Artifical Horizon, Voice Alerts, Return to Home,failsafe, and
Waypoints, with other features and modules on the way!


RADAR
  The plane icon labeled “RADAR” above serves two purposes: the direction the icon is pointingindicates your
present course.   And, the location of the icon on the screen provides a synthetic map, similar to RADAR:  the
center of the screen marks the takeoff point, in a "bird's eye" view, and the plane icon moves around the
screen indicating your model’s location. The maximum distance and the “up” direction is configurable.


Voice Alerts
Imagine hearing the status of your model through earbuds connected to your video receiver!The OSD Pro fully
supports voice warnings and status updates, via theaudio channel of your video transmitter. Most of the
available parameters can be programmed to provide voice alerts.  


For example, you can program the OSD Pro to periodically update you on altitude once a minute: “Altitude 3-9-1
Feet”. And, you can also program a low voltage warning “WARNING- Voltage 12-point-5 Volts”. Voice alerts can
be combined with your camera’s microphone, so you do not lose motor or other flight sounds when there are no
alerts.


Acoustic Variometer
Do you fly FPV sailplanes? A varying tone Variometer with Total Energy Compensation (completely configurable
from the on-screen menus) is included. Any of our altimeters, or GPS altitude, will work with the variometer.
But, the altimeters built into our Glide and Pro recorders have very high resolution, which is required for
the variometer to be useful in finding thermals. You'd use the recorder instead of our eLogger as the 'data
collector' if you need thermal sniffing capability. The OSD-Pro will work with either one.

Here is a video demonstration of the features of the Acoustic Variometer


Return to Home and Failsafe
The Return To Home feature will attempt to bring your stable fixed wing or elevon/vtail plane in a “holding
pattern” above the takeoff point if radio signal is lost, by manipulating your model’s rudder/ailerons,
elevator (or elevons), and throttle, based on your settings.   GPS and other sensor information is used to
attempt to return the plane to home.  


Note that this feature requires configuration of several parameters via our on-screen menus. An on-screen
Return to Home configuration wizard is built in to simplify this process. The feature may require “trial and
error” testing, and may not work with all planes or under all conditions. If you have a stabilization system,
this process is greatly simplified. We plan on releasing additional sensors that will further simplify this
feature.

A Failsafe feature is also included, if Return to Home is not desired, or you are not using GPS.  The failsafe
feature sets your aileron/rudder, throttle, and elevator to programmable positions, if radio signal is lost.
This is most useful for radios without built-in failsafe.

The Return to Home and Failsafe features work with all known radio types.


Flight Simulator
A built-in flight simulator is included, letting you fly the RADAR icon around the screen, controlling
altitude, throttle and turns with your RC Radio. Since the control surfaces of your model will move at the
same time, this feature makes it easier to configure Return to Home and test your alarms and settings, and is
also fun on rainy days!


Waypoints
Up to 3 waypoints (within visual range of the takeoff point) can be programmed into the OSD Pro, for aerial
photography or just for fun.   The locations of the waypoints are displayed on the RADAR display, making it
easy for you to manually fly to the waypoints (the system will not autonomously fly to the waypoints).

When you connect the FMA Direct™ CPD-4™ X/Y horizon sensor (either with the without the FMA™ stabilization
Computer), an artifical horizon line can be displayed on the video screen. Click here for information on how
to connect the FMA Direct sensor to the OSD Pro system. See the video below for an example of the AHI display
tracking the horizon:


New: RSSI
Several long range radio systems support analog RSSI output. We now support RSSI display, directly on the OSD
Pro screen. Click here for more information.


New: Monitoring of Multiple Batteries
Need to monitor more than one battery pack with your OSD Pro, such as your video battery, main battery, and
BEC? We now support monitoring of up to three battery packs, directly on the OSD Pro screen. Click here for
more information.


How Do I Configure and Control the OSD Pro?
The OSD Pro's built in on-screen menus and Eagle Tree’s drag and drop configuration software makes it easy to
configure the OSD Pro to display what you want to see, when and where you want to see it. As few or as many
parameters as you need can be displayed.

Our software lets you configure the OSD with up to 20 data parameters per screen.  Also, the same parameter
can be displayed on multiple screens.

The OSD Pro's on-screen menus let you set up the Return to Home feature, set audio volume, configure GPS
settings, turn on and off the graphical features, and much more, without needing a computer at the field.

Two servo channels (one of which must be dedicated full time to the OSD Pro) let you switch between on-screen
menus to further configue the OSD, or turn off the OSD entirely.


How Do I Hook it Up?
The OSD Pro Expander has the following connections:

Connection to the eLogger or Data Recorder Servo-style connections to your camera’s “video out” port and your
videotransmitter’s “video-in” port Servo-style connections to your audio microphone (if you have one) and to
your video transmitter's audio in port.
Servo connections for controlling the OSD from your radio, and for Return to Home and Failsafe features. The
servo connections are Aileron/Rudder In and Out, Elevator In and Out, Throttle In and Out, Aux 1 In, and Aux 2
In. Note that the Aux 1 channel must be dedicated to the OSD Pro, but the Aux 2 channel may be shared with
other functions on your model.

Five male to male Servo extension cables are included for hooking up to your servos.


Is the Eagle Tree OSD Pro System “Future Proof”?
Yes!   Eagle Tree has been in the R/C Data business for many years – it’s all we do!   We won’t lose interest
in your data equipment shortly after you buy our product, and we have full time support staff to help with any
issues you encounter.

Also, the systems are fully modular.  If we come out with a new sensor, a more powerful OSD Expander, a
software improvement, etc., it’s easy and cost effective to update the system.   So, your system is not
obsolete a few months after your buy it.

And of course, the OSD Expander’s firmware is updatable from the internet, making it easy for you get support
for new sensors, access to new features, and download the inevitable bug fixes.


But I also need Data Logging!

Complete data logging of most parameters is included. The data are downloaded via the included USB
connection, and graphed and analyzed with our powerful Windows software.
