Hornet’s nest’s first ADS-B In equipped drone is now available!

Today I setup the original hexacopter I built with the uAvianix PingRX ADS-B receiver.  (ADS-B In)

I will have more detailed videos in the near future.  Look for the red light on the device to blink when ADS-B data is being received.  This worked indoors surrounded by a steel building.  An airport was nearby about 1 mile from this location.
