The MWOSD v5r1 mini-Andromeda OSD 90 is a multi function CORE PDB (power distribution board) made by CarbonBird AU and includes everything a mini Quad Pilot needs to keep the build clean, compact and above all reliable - with so many rubbish OSD PDB producing noisy video images (even resorting to drastic LCfilters haha) and those boards soon smoking under high amps after a few flights ; so our EE's worked to design a new PDB board able to take high amp bursts, have full sunlight visible LOS orientation LEDS with above all a SUPERCLEAR video picture, clear OSD text and RC STICKS feature control (to enter setting mode of OSD - Before arming hold MID THRO ; RIGHT YAW ; CYCLIC FORWARD to enter menu and setting of all features) - even the LEDs are installed and brighter than anything else on the market for FPV
Question What's the difference with this v5 MWOSD 90 and the previous v3 50 mini-andromeda 50? Answer = This OSD version has full Scarab MWOSD built in - plus the double thickness copper PDB for 90 amp race bursts, and in built dual pololu 2 x 1000ma uBecs for 5v and 12v FPV gear (so these are uBEC not BEC and are double the DC power of the v3 mini andromeda) - we developed the v5 for hard core racers pushing max-amps
Features of the mini-Andromeda OSD v5r1 90 PDB
Here is an example of the Andromeda PDB OSD system being used in FPV flying to provide telecommand information back to the FPV pilot and also to tune PID's and other settings - OSD usually configured by "RC Sticks" - but advanced function accessed using MWOSD Chrome Extension

I went through so many PDB/OSD combo's before this board came out. They all failed, caused damage and cost me money. The mini-Andromeda OSD-90 PDB I have has been perfect!
I have had loads of flights with it now, and am now back to trusting my quads again, thanks to Multiwii developing this OSD-PDB board!
