Raspberry Pi and Mission Planner?

Hello everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone has tried doing anything with the Raspberry Pi boards and Mission Planner? http://www.raspberrypi.org

If it is possible to get the software working on the board with a usb video capture stick or something you would be able to have full telemetry and video in a footprint that could be stuck to the back of your radio. The power requirement os also quite low, and would be a lot more convenient than balancing a laptop somewhere. 

I will have a more in depth look into it next week :) Just thought I'd see if anyone had looked into this setup at all.3690970077?profile=originalhttp://www.raspberrypi.org

  • Yep, I just compiled it on my Pi using the Linux instructions.  After 5 hours, I left it and went to bed, it was done compiling in the morning. 8-)  Starts up fine, no errors.

    As for the display, I use an hdmi-vga dongle.


  • As far as I'm aware (I might be wrong) the raspberryPi hasn't got composite-in, only composite out. Composite in would be good for integrating fpv video in Mission Planner.

    Also, there is a more powerful board called the hummingboard (http://gizmodo.com/raspberry-pi-has-a-tiny-45-pc-competitor-1599677115) This might run Mission Planner & FPV video together.


    • Actually, there's an idea. Combine a Hummingboard (http://www.solid-run.com/products/hummingboard/), with a RC305 video receiver, a 7" touchscreen monitor....Load DroidPlanner onto it...Mount it to your Taranis...And you have both recorded FPV & touchscreen GCS. And A/B switch to change between the 2 screens. Nice idea huh? Who's good at getting me Kickstarter funded? :) :) :)

    I've been experimenting with a 4G LTE Dongle and Raspberry Pi as a telemetry system for pixhawk.  I've also thought of using it for video, but haven't had the time for those experiments yet.

  • I personally have not done it but it is detailed how to here:


  • What about running droid planner or andropilot on one of the more recent and powerful boards like beaglebone/cubieboard/pcduino/olinuxino/odroid, that are all capable of running linux/android and all come with 1ghz or more processor and 2gb of RAM?

    I think this would be a solution to run a full featured GCS in a very small package.

    I'm probably going to try the olinuxino A20 board with its 10'' display, will let you know...

  • I'm interested in this proyect, but I think we need do something similar to apm with 3 or 4 machines, using wine or similar, it's possible??
  • Any new development with this project?

    thank you.

    I would try running this project on the Pi https://github.com/wiseman/mavelous
    multi-platform ground station for drones that speak the MAVLink protocol - wiseman/mavelous
