The Wearable Groundstation

Have a look at the wearable groundstation, that I have built as cockpit for my Boeing 787-like drones avionics suite FlightZoomer...The wearable groundstation has these features:A solid carrying bracket allows to put on the whole groundstation without neckstrapPerfect symbiosis between man and machineYou can sit, walk or drive with the groundstation put onThe tablet screen sits 30cm/12" in front of the eyes, which gives a very realistic feeling of sitting in a real cockpitLike you step into a…See More

"@Mateusz, I took notice of the SpaceMouse some months back. It is indeed similar, has even many more handling modes as it seems. I agree, that it could be integrated too and that it could serve as a quite intuitive flight controller…"

"This is surprisingly good, and pretty thought provoking. I can imagine using it also to plan paths quite intuitivley."

"How about using SpaceMouse and being able to control almost everything at the same time?"

Fly With A Single Rotary Controller - FlightZoomer 3 Feature Preview

When Microsoft announced the Surface Dial last October, I immediately knew, that no better application could be developed for this controller than controlling the flight path of drones. For weeks I checked availability in Europe, only to order an overpriced device from the US Ebay finally. As it arrived I probably got one of the first Surface Dials in Europe...This device literally cries to be integrated in my virtual cockpit software FlightZoomer. It is a perfect fit as an efficient, yet…See More

"Great! Thanks for your reply and all the work your are doing on this system! Let's see what you can do with all this ideas, I can't wait to try a plane version  :)"

Martin Rüedi commented on Martin Rüedi's blog post Synthetic camera offers FPV purely as a software solution
"Fully agreed. The setup with a SiK radio would avoid the relay server entirely (so some minor features like logging & route database would still need to added to the cockpit app). It would remove complexity quite a bit. Only one app would have…"

r3d_f1v3 commented on Martin Rüedi's blog post Synthetic camera offers FPV purely as a software solution
"Supporting the Sik Radio, would be great for "short range" LOS operations, avoiding the need for a phone in the plane, saving weight and cost of the data usage. Also, if it was posible to have the server app and the groundstation on the…"

Martin Rüedi commented on Martin Rüedi's blog post Synthetic camera offers FPV purely as a software solution
"Thanks for the feedback and the suggestions! Arduplane support, SiK Radio telemetry connectivity (though the groundstation app still requires Internet for the map data) and some sort of headtracker solutions are indeed very important additions, that…"

r3d_f1v3 commented on Martin Rüedi's blog post Synthetic camera offers FPV purely as a software solution
"Also, it would be very nice if the synthetic image view could be controlled using the headtraker in the FPV goggles, so the real and virtual views were in sync as the head was moving... Maybe you could extract the headtracker possition info from 2…"

r3d_f1v3 commented on Martin Rüedi's blog post Synthetic camera offers FPV purely as a software solution
"Hi Martin. I think your software would be a very good backup and security system for hobby FPV flights, in case of fog, darkness, or video loss. The thing is, I don't fly multirrotors, so It would be very interesting if there was a version…"
