My XJ470 rebuilt

best viewed with 720p HD settings

This winter I rebuilt my XJ470: added a PiZero with a Picam. This PiZero functions as a companion computer with a python dronekit and a WiFi access point enabling a mavlinkbridge. Hence an android tablet, running Tower, can be connected to this WiFi access point for monitoring and telemetry. Moreover the PiZero-Picam streams video from the multicopter. This new configuration was successfully tested at the Model Club de la Côte de Beauté (MCCB) Charente Maritime (France).

  • I like how you documented it with video :) and I like your use of remote desktop to the pi zero. Hope you're having fun :)
