Do we want to use the same OSD controls as Beta flight which uses throttle down, yaw right which is close to our arming gesture
Discussed 2x2 position switch setup vs a single 3-pos switch. The two controls required are Video On/Off and OSD menu control
Discussion of how we can remove requirement to add duplicate code into each vehicle when adding a new feature like this. Options include adding parameters at the recently added Parent vehicle class level. Tridge to work with Andy to apply this to this PR.

Major point of contention was the use of EKF-origin-offsets instead of Locations in the Object Database and the issues this will cause when we come back to re-integrate this with Plane. Randy says he’s happy to change it back to Locations but is keen to get it working now for Copter/Rover and thinks this PR is a step towards that
Lengthy discussion on limitations of BendyRuler and why it performs better in Plane vs Copter and Rover. Points include estimation errors play a larger role in vehicles that move slowly. Randy thinks that it might be an improvement to change BendyRuler to produce a path rather than a safe direction.
Randy wished that more developers were available to help with the object avoidance features
