I was wondering if there was a simple built in way of streaming the GPS data of the plane out of Mission Planner into Plugin software to drive a RS-232 Antenna Tracker system?
The info that is needed is Latitude, Longitude, and Altitude. I have a friend that is willing to write a basic Plugin to communicate the info to the serial-Servo driver.
If this info streamable from Mission Planner that would make it easier.
Any insight into this would be helpful...
This is an awesome idea! I'd be all over this in a hart beat if support is made for it.
press control-G for nmea output.
the planner does support antenna tracking as well.
It sure does! It took some time to get the azimuth and elevation angles correct (with the servos I modified) using the HIL but it works like a charm now. Thank you for your work Michael.
michael, what about the analog gauges? is it possible to have them running at the same time as antenna tracking?
my tracker is already working on mission planner, it is really cool and user-friendly to get it to work properly!
Ricardo: would you like to share your antenna tracker setup like mechanical and software setup also? Because mine was not work properly yet.
I am looking to use my APM 2.5 which i dont fly with anymore to build a tracker for my RFD900 Long range Modem.
The Wiki page has given more questions in my head than actually were...Would seek ur kind advice..
Thanks in advance!!
no se si estas usando pololu maestro para controlar tracker, pero estoy interesado si es asi en conocer los valores puestos en mission planner para control de tracker por que mi servo 360º de pan no para de dar vueltas. saludos

Michael, ¿qué pasa con los medidores analógicos? ¿Es posible tenerlos funcionando al mismo tiempo que el seguimiento de la antena?
¡Mi rastreador ya está trabajando en el planificador de la misión, es realmente genial y fácil de usar para que funcione correctamente!
