The HUD From Last Year Sucked Becuz


https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=838443

Java was slow. Keystrokes lagged. U couldn't remember the keypresses to navigate the menus. It took a lot of power to render the GUI. The artificial horizon was pretty bad in flight. It took too long to decipher information on it. That had everyone looking at a text interface.

Most people cram a bunch of traditional airplane instruments in a window. How well does that work on a phone? How would U send PICOC commands to the vehicle?


Most important factoids:

BATTERY VOLTAGE
gps satellites/sonar SPL
thrust balance
2.4Ghz bitrate
72Mhz bitrate


Not exactly what Goog spits out, but personal experience. Easy to get on a command line, but we want extra optional factoids like gyro bias. Graph format data would be nice. Maybe an EKG machine, because what you're doing is monitoring health & not flying anything. When we're out working, it's easier to navigate with a keyboard than a touch pad.

Wish list:
Easily readable fonts.
White on black for daylight.
Make voltage, GPS satellites, & thrust balance big enough to see from far away.
Graph & numeric options for each factoid.
Automatically partition based on enabled graphs.
Bingo board for IMU state.
