In this video we add an OSD to an APM 2.6 (also works on 2.5 and 2.7) using the telemetry port on the flight controller itself. no changes are needed to the firmware of setup on the board to do this just the great little $12 board and some cables.

In this video I cover what software you need, how you setup the board so it shows what you want, where you want it and how you cable it up to the APM and your camera and video transmitter.
