Ok so my Wizard arrived. I was actually smart and ordered an OSD with it, as a few of the reviews said to do so. I've got the wiring diagram for it, so once it is all hooked up it will display all that info onto my FPV screen? I've put the link below for the OSD I bought.

The osd have many options if you flash it with mwosd firmware. I'm not sure if it comes pre-flashed from banggood, but if not you will have to flash it. Normally I use a FTDI adapter for this, but I think it is possible to activate a serial passthrough on the FC so you can use that one instead. A word of advice, be very careful when soldering the osd. It is very easy to lift the pads when soldering in my experience.

I have two of these OSD from banggood - I don't think it comes flashed with MWOSD (I actually didn't check, but they usually come with a much more basic software if any at all).  I agree about the soldering - the pads do come up easily and it's trashed if one comes up.

Serial passthrough works for configuring, but not flashing.  You will need an FTDI adapter if you want to flash different software (like MWOSD - recommended): http://www.banggood.com/FT232RL-FTDI-USB...17226.html
