Hi Guys, first time post, hoping someone might be able to assist.
I’ve been researching hardware and software for RC Glider cross country flying, i know there is specific hardware out there for this type of flying, but i wanted to try and achieve it a little cheaper if it’s possible.
What i wanted to do was have full control over the glider as per normal flight. So nothing new there. Secondly i wanted to have someone standing beside me with an ipad/android device directing me to the next way point. At this stage the flying of the model will be all visual, no FPV.
The course will be a 250m triangle to start with. Nice an easy.
My question was what sort of equipment will i need, there is so much out there it does get confusing, I’m gathering it’ll need a radio link, a flight control system/gps and live feed to the ground station software?
Any takers want to point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance
