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 […]
Yes it can be done, by using a small translator app that runs parallel with the Stratux software and sends the data out formatted as X-Plane 11 packets. Development for this has pretty much reached as far as it can go, and I’ve since switched to ForeFlight due to incessant crash issues that Garmin couldn’t […]
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.
My quick fun flight out to Lake Anna just for the heck of it.
A very handy portable bluetooth speaker that fits just about anywhere. I use this thing all the time. I think my only complaint might be that the battery could last a little longer.
I created a small app that runs parallel to the stratux software so that the position and attitude can be displayed on Garmin Pilot (iPad or Android versions). It translates the websocket interface that the Stratux supplies and retransmits it in the X-Plane 11 format that Garmin Pilot uses to simulate position and attitude when […]
Updates, bug fixes and new features added to the “Rosco” Stratux AHRS, traffic and weather app.
Okay so here’s the problem. I started using Garmin Pilot because I didn’t have an iPad and it seemed like the best option at the time (about two years ago). Yes, I know there are lots of other options that provide nearly all or maybe even more now but once you get married to an […]
Due to terrible winter weather all across the northeast over Christmas it just wasn’t possible to fly. Well it was but I didn’t want to spend untold hours unburying the plane or getting stuck waiting for conditions to improve when we left, which was a highly probable so we just drove instead. I mounted a […]
