Hi Everyone! While waiting for my NAVIO2 to be delivered I still have to clarify a topic I’ve been searching around but I’m not sure about: how to exchange data with the drone
My goal is to build up a drone (Navio2+RP3A+) and control it only via my mac: basically I would like to send instructions “fly to that point or a set of points” in real time from my mac and retrieve periodically all the telemetry data (battery voltage level, GPS satellites, temp, etc) to make sure everything is ok. I’m not interested in video streaming on a first step …
Is that something I can do by using the Wifi module of the RP3A+ or is it necessary to buy an additional telemetry module?
By using Wifi, what is the range I could possibly reach and is there a way to improve it? I need to send and receive only simple data (for example the next point where I want to navigate or the Return to Home Signal and be updated about the current drone coordinates). Maybe a special router on the ground could help to boost the signal?
