Overlaying GPS Coordinates for Camera Crosshairs

Hey Guys!

I am working on a project to allow us to implement GPS coordinates for the location of the crosshairs of a PTZ camera, other wise known as Geo-pointing.  This will essentially give us the LAT/LONG of what we are looking at.  

I have found several methods to do this, but I'm looking for the simplest way but accurate as possible.  I am fairly new…

Telemetry/Video over 4G/LTE Cellular link for Beyond-LOS Flight

I have a thought to use cellular technology to pipe video and data over a UDP connection.  This is nothing, however, I haven't seen a lot of support for the usage of 4G/LTE which allows up to 100mbps speeds.  Has anyone ever read up on this pico board?  I'ts available from  The same place I received my mini-PC for my GCS.

I had this idea…

These are the specs that the company boasts:


Processor Specs: Atheros,…

Relatively Inexpensive Thermal Imaging Gimbal M1D Micro

   After arriving in Texas, I've talked to several land owners who complain about feral hogs damaging their property.  I had a solution that would incorporate thermal imaging with a sUAS platform to track hog movement and patterns during the day and at night.  While doing research I came across this little baby,…

X-Plane PPL Flight Training from

I'm not sure if anyone has come across this, but I've been reading through the training and it is very informative.

Since most of us have the Mission Planner software that can HIL interface with X-Plane, this can be a very good tool for amateur UAV pilots to learn the basics of flying and aircraft while getting stick-time in a flight simulator.  The X-PPL…
