OSD Install on the Shuriken 180 Pro

HolyBro Micro minimOSD and Lemon Sat Rx

The above photo shows the optional HolyBro Micro minimOSD (red, black and yellow wires) and a Lemon Rx DSMX-Compatible Diversity Satellite Receiver temporarily connected for testing. The Lemon diversity sat receiver upgrade and OSD installation were done at the same time while the Shuriken 180 Pro was disassembled. Installation of the Lemon diversity sat receiver is covered separately.

The optional HolyBro Micro minimOSD for the Shuriken 180 Pro now comes with all wires soldered and connectors installed, ready to plug right in. The heat-shrink tubing is purposely left loose for any changes or additions, such as RSSI, second battery, etc.

Since I swapped out the original HolyBro Rinnegan FPV camera with a RunCam Swift Mini, I had to change the 4-pin camera connector to 3-pin. The RunCam Swift Mini has a 3-pin video side connector and 2-pin OSD/setup, whereas the Rinnegan has a single 4-pin connector. For the 3-pin connector, I just removed one of the 3-pin connector housings from the cable that came with the RunCam camera, as shown below.

Installing the HolyBro Micro minimOSD in the Shuriken 180 Pro was simple. The printed circuit board (PCB) can be installed on top of the VTX (as shown below) or aft of the VTX jumpers and UART connectors. With the Micro minimOSD PCB in heat-shrink tubing, it fits nicely on top of the VTX with most of the wires taped off to the side. I would probably use double-sided foam tape if I were to mount it behind the jumpers.

In the photo below, the loose wires and connector go up through the hole under the FPV camera in the carbon-fiber top plate and connect to the FPV camera.

After installing the HolyBro Micro minimOSD, UART2 needs to be enabled in Betaflight Configurator.
