Any more details on open OSD interface?

"I Like Waffles" : FPVLAB on Facebook
Nice start. Great to see an open platform.
I'd be interested in developing an Android telemetry client for this when the rest of the API is available.
I would love an android ap that shows where you have flown. how would you connect your phone up to the aat?

The one thing I know how to do well with FPV - crash. All in a day of fun!
I believe landing is a full body experience .... I do my best to aim for your body.
Will support bluetooth expansion
Are you planning to support Bluetooth on Apple products?
If so Bluetooth is going to be expensive and painful. To pull that off you need to join the made for ipod program and setup legal agreements with Apple, after that is done you'll need to get special builds of chips from Roving Networks that support Apple's encryption scheme. We did a prototype for a bike show last September and Apple was so slow approving the legal documents (3 month time frame) that we switched to Android (which has no requirements at all). It really was slow dealing with Apple, it seems they are very good at dealing with big fish, not so good at people hoping to sell 100 or 1000 of something or working on tight schedules for shows and demos. A second project I worked on that required a hardware interface with Apple died because of Apple approval issues for enterprise software. You can make a your own custom interface (that amounts to a serial port) but that is expensive as it requires extensive testing with Apple and EMI testing. Hitec appears to have gone this route with their new telemetry stuff.
You can get serial ports to work on iPhones using adapters from RedPark. This process will require going through the Made for iPod program but you just use RedPark hardware with a custom ID embedded in their cables so they only work with your applications. Their cables do work fine up to 57.6kbaud. Redpark was great to work with but for us Apple was not. Their cables are 59 bucks.
If you can get this thing to work over WiFi or the microphone jack (where there are no limitations from Apple) you will be much better off.
