Pictura – I Flightcomputer Ordered.

Well yeah so i ordered it. Since it’s entirely my own design i have to receive and then assemble it still. I have named the computer the PICTURA I, and the modules Radio Module I and GPS Module I. This system is modular and connects key components through pins & headers.
These are the costs of the system:

  • €39.- GPS (Lassen IQ + HFL Antenna + Mating header)
  • €18.- Processor (Arduino pro mini)
  • €17.- Radiotransmitter (NTX-2)
  • €  5.- GSM (Telephone, Sony Ericsson T68i from eBay)
  • €15.- Motherboard (my Custom PCB, see last post)
  • €  5.- Radioboard (my Custom PCB, see last post)
  • €  2.- GPSboard (my Custom PCB, see last post)
  • €10.- Components etc (resistors, pins, etc for on custom boards)
    ——-  +
    €75.-

And there you go, my very own flightcomputer for €75, and this has everything:

  • GPS – Positioning!
  • GSM – Calling and SMSing the positions
  • Radio – Transmitting RTTY signals via radio (position & sensors!)
  • Datalog – It has a SD slot on it!
