The latest update to the APM mission planner has a new feature for integrated OSD video. Allowing you to turn the artificial horizon into a heads up display without the need for any additional hardware! This allows you to view your live video with the artificial horizon overlayed over it. To enable this feature you need to select your video feed from the flight planner tab, this will replace the artificial horizon background with your live video.
