Another Newbie Question

Does Mission Planner have a vide window.

I ask becuase I have Windows based Tablet, Rugged field usable type that I am going to use as my ground station. It has USB connectivity and I am going to pump Video to it from my hexa. I can use the PC as a dvr for instance as well as dealing with telemetry.

I wondered if Mission planner had a video window through which I could pump the vid to. Then I would have all the data in one spot, on a nice handheld device. Neat and clean no caffenine.

 

Let me know please if anyone knows.

  • I thought maybe it might make more sense to explain what I am thinking.

    I am considering building an antena tracker., The technology is easy enough to build, Mission planner as the brains, couple of servos, controller and a patch antenna and off to the races.

    Thing is, I found an in car pc for a couple hundred bucks, built in wifi and lots of USB ports. So I get to thinking.

    Load mission planner and let it run the tracker. Not cheap but not real expensive either.

    So add in a Video Capture card and connect it to the FPV video

    Also add in the USB 3DR reciever.

    Now you have a small computing device that has telemetry, and video.

    Now since its wifi enabled, one could make a peer to peer wifi connection and stream the video to my tablet pc, easy peasey

    Here is what my tablet looks like, about the best dang field usable pc I have ever seen.

    Run's mission planner, has GPS, WIFI, Bluetooth, works rain or shine.

    However what I don't know is, how to deal with Mission Planners telemetry.

    Its just a thought.

    @Richard,

    I believe that the MP does have a video window function that can overlay the HUD in the Flight Data window. Here is the wiki link on how to accomplish enabling that function: http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-other-mission-planner-featu...
