Alright, I really appreciate the message.
I contacted my local provider and I was informed that their mobile hotspot devices dont change IP addresses, they remain the same for the contract. Would that eliminate the need for creating a server? or the VPN. I dont really understand how all of this would work. Can I send commands to my fixed IP and pull information (telemetry) and command it through the internet, and that wouldnt require additional programming?
The hotspot has a built in battery, so that wont be an issue. On just the motors, I should have about 1.5 hours of flight time, with a camera Im not that sure how long.
I plan to have a preprogrammed response to losing internet connection where the drone will return to the launch point or another designated point autonomously. Or if it loses internet connection, it could manage its internet use, such as the camera going off first, then telemetry, and at least a gps location for recovery.
Could I record all flight information, like telemetry every 1/4 second on a micro sd card? For analyzing flight information on google earth.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Ive been searching information on this and couldnt find anything.
