Update on the progress of the project I’m working on that uses a Raspberry Pi Zero W with a 3D Robotics pitot-static tube and pressure sensor, Adafruit BNO055 attitude and magnetometer sensor, and an Adafruit Barometric Sensor to collect real time attitude and true airspeed data and send it via WiFi to a tablet-based app […]
This is one of those let’s get the parts and see how it goes projects. All the sensors are tied to a Raspberry Pi Zero W with a display/button hat. This video doesn’t include the barometric pressure sensor that I added afterwards. The idea is to use a pitot-static tube with a pressure sensor, an […]
Late this spring the weather and schedules lined up for us to take an overnight camping trip on the weekend to Ingalls Field which is a small airport (with a long runway) atop Warm Springs Mountain in the Shenandoahs. It was a bit cold and windy overnight but we had a great time and pretty […]
Aviation Adventures organized a fly-in to the Williamsburg airport to visit Colonial Williamsburg which is only about 45 minutes away by air. It made for a fun outing and we met some great fellow pilots as well.
