  • (i MAY have made this page before, search engine couldn't find it)
  • Essentially a software and/or firmware that takes:
    • Elevation Data
    • Weather Data
    • Telemetry from Plane
    • Ardupilot based mission/route info
  • It then uses this to determine where there will most likely be "thermals"
  • It then plans how to use these to reach roughly the same path as the ardupilot plan
    • Perhaps make some plugin?
      • Have the route/loop for the mission, then have power used v glide caused variation in route+time spent getting from point a to b ?
  • Need to see if this could be done "on machine", or require a seperate computer to do the work, and send simple data to the plane
