Introduction
DJI iOSD is specially designed for DJI autopilot system during the FPV flight or other aero-modeling activates. DJI iOSD
can transmit video and iOSD information in real time, which will help you to obtain the aircraft status information during a
FPV flight. It can display power voltage, flight velocity, height, distance from the home point, horizontal attitude, GPS
satellite number, etc. iOSD and video information are superposed on the receiver, making iOSD data clearly visible and
bringing you a more involved flight experience.
DJI iOSD should be used in conjunction with a DJI autopilot system. It supports two video input sources under PAL or
NTSC mode, which can be selected remotely by an R/C transmitter switch. The R/C TX switch can also change the
wireless video transmitter channel remotely when user uses the wireless video transmitter specified by DJI. The iOSD
supports online upgrades. The iOSD has built-in BEC, which is on one hand for the power supply of the camera, on the
other hand for the power supply of the autopilot system’s main controller to improve the power supply reliability of the
main controller.

Video Input Cable ×1
Connect the iOSD with video input source (i.e. camera or DJI
Z15) for video input and power supply, with maximum current
of 1A. If you connect the iOSD to DJI Z15, please use the 4PinAudio Head cable.
If connect to other camera, use the 4Pin cable for the
connection in accordance with the wiring diagram.
Video Output Cable ×2
Only when you use the wireless video transmitter module
specified by DJI, you can use the bi-port cable to connect the
iOSD with the video transmitter module. Otherwise, you can
use the one-port cable for your own connection in accordance
with the wiring diagram.
2-PIN to 3-PIN Cable ×1
Connect the iOSD with the R/C receiver through this cable.
When there are two video signal inputs, it is used for the
selection of video signal sources. It can be used for the
selection of AVL58 video channel.

Assembly
1.
Fix the iOSD controller on your aircraft.
2.
Connect the iOSD with the video signal source, wireless video TX module, DJI autopilot system and R/C
receiver. Make sure the connection is correct in accordance with the wiring diagram.
3.
Setup a 3-position switch on the R/C TX as the iOSD control switch.
4.
Connect your wireless video RX module with the display screen.
Please refer to DJI autopilot system manual, your TX manual, and your wireless video RX for more details.
3-Position Switch Control
Choose a 3-position switch and make sure you connect the correct channel of the receiver to the iOSD switch port.

Position -1 Position -2, (hold position -2 for 1.5s): every toggle from Position -1 to Position -2 increases the
channel of the wireless video transmitter module by 1 (from CH1 to CH8), only for the wireless video
transmitter module specified by DJI.

Position -3 Position -2, (hold position -2 for 1.5s): toggle the switch to select the required video input, when
there are two video inputs. Only the toggle from Position -3 to Position -2 can change the video input source.
AV1 is default.

Video Output Port
· If you use wireless video transmission module AVL58 specified by DJI, connect through the bi-port cable.
· If you use your own module, please connect through the one-port cable according the pin description.
Channel Control pin:Control signal for the video transmitter channel number (CH1…..CH8).If your video
transmitter does not support this feature, then ignore this pin.
Video and OSD output pin: make sure this is correctly connected.
Positive/Negative voltage of battery pin: its output voltage is equate to the voltage of the battery, supplying
power for your wireless video transmitter. It is recommended to solder the two cables of the same function.
Please make sure the input voltage of your own wireless video transmitter is matched to the voltage of
BATT, to prevent damage from your wireless video transmitter module. For example, if the Battery is
6S(25V) and the input voltage of the wireless video transmitter is 3S(12V), then you cannot use the
BATT+ to supply power since the 25V is larger than 12V.

Important: iOSD can be connected to any CAN-Bus port of the WKM system, BUT should be connected to the NAZA-M or NAZA-M
V2 via the PMU V2 (NAZA-M V2 Accessory). NAZA-M should be upgraded to the firmware version of V3.10 or above when using
with the PMU V2 , with the same assistant software V2.10 of NAZA-M V2. iOSD should not be connected to the WKM and NAZAM/NAZA-M V2 at the same time. Refer to the Appendix for more connection details.
Video Input Port
· If you use the DJI Z15, it is recommended to use the 4Pin- Audio Head cable for connecting the iOSD and GCU.
If you use the 4Pin cable, please connect the iOSD to the Z15's GCU according to the above chart.
· If you use your own camera(s), please connect through the Video Input Cable according the pin description.
AV1/AV2 pin:you can select the required input. AV1 is default. POWER pin: supply power for Video input
source such as a camera, with the maximum current of 1A. If the battery is 3S LiPo then: Output Voltage = Input
Votage. If 4S~6S then: Output Voltage=11.2V. Make sure your camera is rated for this voltage and
current(1A), if not, please use a separate battery supply.
· If you use other wireless video transmitter and the rated voltage is over the voltage of BATT+, you can use the
POWER pin to apply power. Make sure the total current consumption of wireless video transmitter and camera
is lower than 1A, otherwise will damage your iOSD.
