For next years Makerspace at our Middle School we thinking on doing a Near Space Balloon launch.
I love all the telemetry wrapped up in the APM for such a low price, GPS, Mag, Baro, Accel and more not to mention easy exporting to an KLM and other logs.
Since we are already putting a lipo on board to power the camera(s) I was thinking we could also add a APM 2.6 if we could somehow get it to arm and keep it armed to collect the data during flight. Estimating about 90 minutes or so in the air. One worry I have is would it use all its memory before the 90 minutes was complete?
I can add an Rx to get it armed but won't have motors/esc, If there is a way to arm it and leave it armed without motors is there a list of Advanced params I need to change to make this happen.
If anyone knows of a better telemetry only I can get same price range as APM that would be appreciated to.
I know this is off topic of drones, if there is a better fourm for APM only questions I can move this there.
Thanks again, Ed,
