    As far as I know the DJI offerings are the ones that directly get their data from the Naza rather than seperate sensors. The IOSD mini is also pretty light and small and can fit reasonably easily inside the shell. When I assessed it this was the best for me.

    The EzOSD is a decent piece of equipment, but not exactly optimal for a P2. It doesn't read the NAZA's telemetry as IrishSights mentioned, and wiring it in to the P2's non-standard power chain can be a bit of a project.

    It's hard to beat the iOSD mini for use on a P2...it's compact, fairly easy to wire up, and you can see the exact data the NAZA is seeing.

    There are some good easy to follow YouTube videos out there showing what wires to join to what. Even a green Irishman like me can do it and that's sayin' something :) Proud of myself I was when it all worked!

    On a P1 it's great, getting that wired to a P2 is bit more of a challenge.

    Right, I meant the EzOSD takes more work...the iOSD mini is much easier to connect in a P2.

    For me the DJI iOSD-mini was a no brainer. It's cheap, small, light, easy to install and made for the Phantom.

    JAAMOI, what would a third party OSD give you that the iOSD-mini doesn't?
