Best way to go about displaying Amp draw and Battery voltage on a flying wing setup ?

#1
Gday all
I have box googles a foxxer monster cam and vtx And and have it all setup in a flying wing but want to display Amp draw and Battery voltage on the screen .
I don't need stabiliser.
What would you suggest to get the results I'm after on a tight budget ?

This video will get the voltage I can’t remember if it will give amps. The series will eventually add GPS, to point the way home & how far

I went with merv's suggestion and have all the components metioned in the video minim osd,gps,programmer .(Very Cheap)
i downloaded the arduino ide and edit the MW_OSD.ino file ,save it ,verify it just like in the video but when i plug the usb in from the programmer that is connected to the micro minim osd i get device did not install correctly and when i install the drivers in the driver file that comes with arduino isd i plug in again select the new com port try to upload to the minim and get this ...........

Sketch uses 19372 bytes (63%) of program storage space. Maximum is 30720 bytes.
Global variables use 1850 bytes (90%) of dynamic memory, leaving 198 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.
Low memory available, stability problems may occur.

Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

*NOTE Programmer has red light , Minim osd has Blue light with flashing green (Blinks bright green a few times when i plug the usb in and Bright a few times when i try to flash.

Anyone in the know have any thoughts on what i might be doing wrong ?

fixed it , might have been sloppy soldering . I wicked and solder sucked it to tidy it up and its worked took 3 evenings of me pulling my hair out but it worked:confused::confused:
Now to try and setup the GPS.
