FalcoX OSD elements Explained

The FalcoX OSD can be configured with many OSD elements to give the pilot all the information in an easy to read format. The OSD font can also be changed on the OSD Page. You can set up the OSD from your goggles as well as the configurator. The configurator may be easier if you would like many elements as it has them all in drop down boxes. To get to this page, put the sticks both bottom left of the radio, then use the yaw to navigate to the OSD page. Select setup OSD and roll right to move positions, and use the pitch to scroll through the options. Yaw left to exit then proceed to the last page to Save and Exit. I would like to thank Wild Willy for helping make sure you pilots get the best information right from the devs!

  • FalcoX-Default and can not be changed. It can be swapped for another element.
  • Pilot Name-Pilot name that is entered on the OSD Page.
  • Arm Status-Shows “Armed”, “Disarmed” and “Quopa Armed”.
  • Warnings-Shows warnings “Quopa On!”, “Volt Low”, and “Batt Dead!”
  • Voltage-Shows the pack battery voltage.
  • Cell Volt-Shows the average voltage per cell. This takes the total voltage and divides by the number of cells.
  • Bat Life-A percentage showing how much battery is left, land at 0!
  • Bat Bar- A graphic representation of Bat Life.
  • Cell Count-Number of Cells Falco thinks your battery has based on voltage.
  • Amp Draw-current mAh draw of all the motors combined.
  • Mah Used-mAh consumed since plug in. There is a wizard to adjust the values if this is not correct for your ESC.
  • Watt Draw-Displays the wattage which is Volts times Amps and is the power of your system, like horsepower in gas engines
  • ArmTime C-continuous arm time across all arm/disarm since power on.
  • Arm Time-Time since last arm.
  • Fly Time-How long PID’s have been active
  • Time On-Time since powered on.
  • RSSI-receiver signal strength indicator, shows the quality of the link between the receiver and the radio.
  • VTX Channel-The current video transmitter selected channel if smart audio/tramp telemetry connected to TX3.
  • Crosshair-Puts a crosshair on the screen .
  • G Meter-shows the acceleration experienced by the airframe.
  • Launch-Displays the angle of the quad when in Launch mode.
  • Throttle-Throttle position being sent to the FC.
  • Gyro Temp-Temperature of the gyro
  • VTX MW-Current power setting of the video transmitter if smart audio/tramp telemetry connected to TX3.
  • Profile-Current profile selected. Default profile is Profile 1.

BL Heli Telemetry Values below only will be available if you have soldered the Bl ehli 32 jumper on the FC and selected Bl heli Telemetry On. If your ESC only has 1 current sensor you either get current OR Bl heli 32 Telemetry data. If you ESC has 4 ESC sensors you can have both.

  • ESC Temp-Temperature of the ESC.
  • ESC1 eRPM-RPM of motor 1.
  • ESC2 eRPM-RPM of motor 2.
  • ESC3 eRPM-RPM of motor 3.
  • ESC4 eRPM-RPM of motor 4.
  • ESC1 Amp-Current draw of ESC 1.
  • ESC2 Amp-Current draw of ESC 2.
  • ESC3 Amp-Current draw of ESC 3.
  • ESC4 Amp-Current draw of ESC 4.

The following elements are available with a GPS attached. Directions for that in another post!

  • Latitude-Current latitude of the ship.
  • Longitude-Current longitude of the ship.
  • Sat Count-Number of satellites being received by the gps.
  • Speed-Current ground speed of the ship.
  • Pos Fix- The GPS position fix (0 is no fix, 1 is rough fix, 2 is good fix).
  • Altitude-Current altitude of the ship.
  • DistToHome- Distance to location when you first armed.
  • Home Arrow-Direction to location where you first armed.
  • Course-Magnetic course of the ship.
