Unable to translate Communication Protocol

I have been trying to decipher the protocol I get when connected to my APM 2.5.  I originally saw this when I opened up the terminal in Mission Planner to analyze the MAVLink.  After that I opened…Continue

SITL with X-Plane

Started this discussion. Last reply by Andy Ure Jan 13, 2015. 4 Replies

I'm wondering if it is possible to use SITL with X-Plane instead of the other sims in the tutorial.  I'm awaiting my APM 2.5 and want to try out the APM on a UAV that I created in PlaneMaker.  I'm…Continue

Overlaying GPS Coordinates for Camera Crosshairs

Posted on November 27, 2013 at 2:30am 35 Comments

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

Posted on April 16, 2013 at 8:42pm 22 Comments

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 min-box.com.  The same place I received my mini-PC for my GCS.

I had this idea…

I came across this while researching wireless solutions and seems very possible to create a long range WiFi connection between the GCS and aircraft using an onboard micro computer.

These are the specs that the company boasts:

Relatively Inexpensive Thermal Imaging Gimbal M1D Micro

Posted on November 22, 2012 at 10:00am 21 Comments

   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,…
