Not sure if this is the right spot to post, but I’ll try here as it probably applies more to planes then the others.
So, if I am flying with other airplanes running Ardupilot, is there a way to have their positional data displayed on my OSD? or in Mission Planner?
I have no experience trying this… but perhaps this could help? http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-multi-vehicle-flying.html
Maybe someone who has experience running multiple vehicles on one GCS could comment further?
I saw the “Multi vehicle flying” video, however what I am looking for is slightly different. the Multi vehicle flying video was using only 1 instance of Mission Planner, and one operator was controlling all three. What I am looking for is a way for multiple UAVs, with separate Ground Stations and pilots, to share positional data with each other.
I was taking a looking at MAVProxy, and possibly having the RaspberryPi of one MAVProxy instances collect data from the other ground stations. MyFlyDream has this, and is called FlyTogether, and I think Eagle Tree may be working on something similar. Ultimate goal would be to have MAVProxy and a RaspberryPi accept input from many different types of ground stations and share positional data with all. It probably only has a purpose as a FPV feature, as it would help tremendously with tandem flying.
