UAV realtime position


I just purchased the SafeSky Early Bird (Android app), and I am very impressed with the design of the application, the UI etc is very nicely done!

As I am primarly intending to use it with UAV flights (DJI drone) I was wondering if it would be possible to inject the real-time drone position into the app, so it would be dynamically updated? Could this type of functionality be offered via the API?

Many thanks for great work,

Educated guess here… you can use a ESP32 with OGN here. Very light weight! Since safesky as I understand will use the same networks your drone will be visible to other users of the sky.
There is also SoftRF you can look into…

The only solution I know is to buy a small android device f.ex.
Unihertz Jelly Pro, The Smallest 4G Smartphone in The World, Android 8.1 Oreo Unlocked Smart Phone with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, Sky Blue

download and run SafeSky then tape/glue it to the drone and transmitt it’s position via the cellular network.

Not an ideal solution… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
