Cellular drone flight. 4G LTE Telemetry, Gamepad, Raspberry Pi, gStreamer (4G Area) using cellular network. Video and telemetry.
We are flying using gamepad controller connected to ground control station (laptop) and from there the signal is sent out to the aircraft via cell network.

With this setup, you can fly on unlimited distance as long as the UAV / Drone has cell coverage. Visit our forum section for more info,

    dude the lag time is over 150ms over 4glte and your paying a monthly sir charge for that? hell I get 10k range with https://fpv.blue/ and only 40ms lag time and 50+k range telemetry with my DL V3 UHF no sir charge. DUDE your lag time is so bad you can see it it's really Annoying

    Hello my friend and congrats for this nice project you share with us. Im considering to use this project with a solar plane. The goal is to have unlimited range and unlimited power. Do you think we can use rasberry pi zero so the plane will be more power efficient?
