I'm curious if there's a way to add a real time flight radar map layer to Mission Planner.

Something along the lines of FlightRadar24.com

Like a mini tower. Everything is real time. My bird, it's flight path be it by waypoint or free flight and all air traffic their flight paths altitudes etc etc.

Currently i have to use them separately. Real time Flight Radar on one screen and Mission Planner on another.

I want to marry the two maps real time.

Any thoughts or alternative methods to achieve this?

Maybe I'm asking the wrong question?

Is it possible to add custom layers in MP?

And or choose a different map provider in MP?


Never mind I think I found out how to do what I want to do.

If interested in doing the same... here's the link to get you started


The developer from Sidepilot made it possible without ADSB-receiver

SidePilot from what I read that's left online didn't have real-time air traffic info. Plus it required BLE repeaters. (Bluetooth) to connect. Basically a mission planner for 3DR Solo and Ardu from what I read of it.

I didn't see anything about receiving real time air traffic or having the capability.

The SidePilot site is down though it looks like they're still selling the phone app for iOS.

I did find one app, similar in that it's a mission planner app but the price tag they put on it to get the version that has real time air traffic capability is just to much for the want of a single feature.

Someone eventually will come out with one that's obtainable I suppose. In the mean time I'll just have to carry the extra gear and use multiple screens.
