Arducopter Mission Planner on Windows 8 ASUS VIVOTAB wireless APM GCS bridge (7 min 4 sec)


To cool to buy a Quad frame build your own! Build you own Ground station. GCS server Wifi enabled Xbee with bluetooth modules. The Idea is to be able to connect to your multi copter no weirs from a mobile phone or PC, tablet no matter what Operating system is being used. I have been working on this for some time. I have this running on a UNO with a double xbee shield, 2.4 xbee, xbee wifly module, Bluetooth wifly module. I would Like to add a web server to the mix to to display GCS data via Http or PHP. I found this Rascal board that uses python that built to do just what I am proposing. Hearer is the code I have so fare no web services yet. Do you think this is useful?
