Hey guys i saw Admins weather balloon system and it really inspired me!
For my youth group i decided to show everyone my passion for robotics and electronics and came up with a simple rig, but i need help with the GPS system. I never used GPS before so i don't quite know where to start. I am funding this all on my own so i would like the cheapest but most effective route there is please. And i want to learn something while doing this so if there are tutorials on how to get everything working that would be great!
I have a Arduino and that's basically it along with some servers and what not. (The servo is going to be the mount for my camera for a 360 view) If any one has any idea or anything advice what so ever then please tell me!
If i need to buy another board or something that's fine to cause i will most likely use GPS again. PS: I would like to be able to use a map or something to retrieve the balloon afterwards! or if it just give coordinates that would be fine also since my grandpa has a hand held GPS tracker
I was thinking about using DroneCell to send me the information but does it need a internet connection? or just a sim card?
