Is there any way to make a python script run automatically as soon as a telemetry link is established? I am trying to control data collection from my script, and would like to toggle when that begins and ends as hands-off as possible.
Here's the skeleton of what I will want to run:
print 'Beginning data collection...'
file = open("somepath\output.txt", "w+")
num = 0
while num in range(50):
file.write("lat: %0.8f\n" %cs.lat)
file.write("lng: %0.8f\n" %cs.lng)
file.write("alt: %0.8f\n" %cs.alt)
file.write("sonar: %0.2f\n" %cs.sonarrange)
num += 1
print 'new point, num: ', num
(Pardon me if this looks janky, I'm new to python)
Is there any way to start this script without selecting it in the "Scripts" tab?
Also, I don't know why it would, but I haven't tested this in the air yet--this script won't block normal functionality, right?
