We just want to let you know that Leo is actually working on a RSSI based arduino antenna tracker.
Today we did some test flights and after some bug fixing the tracker was able to find the copter and track it (only pan at the moment…tilt will come soon).
At the moment the tracker is not really able to find the position when we fly near to it (because the signal is at almost 100% in every direction) but when the copter was ~200m away, it worked!
Hopefully the tracker gets optimised and finished soon, so we can fly even further away without manual readjusting the antenna.
The CP Antenna test is still on our todo-list, but we will wait for better weather before we start it.
A few days ago we received the TBS69 Pixim Seawolf PFV cam from team-blacksheep. At the moment we are flying with a cheap 20€ ebay cam, a ~50€ Sony Super HAD II cam and a ~130€ globe-flight 520TVL GF-OSC HAD cam.
We will record some fpv footage with our ground-recorder to show you the picture quality and let you know what we think about the TBS69.
Due to the other projects and the weather conditions it could take some weeks till we will install the TBS69 and test it.
