This is all according to my partner, I've said he'd be really chuffed to have a Pi, as he's into tech and electrics, just want to know how accessible using his Pi on his smartphone is and if he'll be getting more info on this over the app he already uses.
What do you use to view the aircraft, do you go via Flightaware, Flightradar24 , ADSBexchange or some other method?DougieLawson wrote: ↑Thu Aug 09, 2018 4:49 pmI'm running PiAware. one day I'm hoping to catch a H47 Chinook from RAF Odiham (EGVO) flying too low over my house. I've already caught a couple of daft callsigns (AIRWOLF1 & AIRWOLF2) out of Odiham. Best aircraft yet was PA474 (BBMF Lancaster) flying over.
Might try taking it abroad next time I get a business trip.
That is very interesting.zardoz99 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 18, 2018 2:29 amFor reference, it's possible to run VRS on a RPI3 using "mono" over a PiAware image with all the other requisites installed.
I have a unit feeding Flightaware, FlightRadar24, Planefinder, Radarbox and ADSBExchange as well as running VRS locally.
This is all at sensible CPU and memory loads. It just takes a reasonable bit of work to set up, but it is doable.
