Another question relating to the paparazzi communications, when using the IVY bus is the communication link between the ground computer and airborne provided by a piece of hardware such as a remote control control device or an API device such as the XBee? Or is the network Wi-Fi router able to provide this function?
At the moment I have the ARDrone2, ground computer and Vicon motion capture system connected on the same Wi-Fi network through a Wi-Fi router but no ivy bus communications is being received by the drone.
I am using the GPS small message format in the same manner at NatNet to transfer the XYZ position data from the Vicon to the drone.
Also is the PPRZ_link method similar, i.e. requiring additional hardware / software?
