So I have dabbled with ezwifiBC and OpenHD in the past and have had to put it on the back burner for various reasons.
Recently I have dug out my gear and would like to give it another go.
I have a couple of Pi 0 w’s on hand for the airside. And a pi 3b+ for ground. I’ve had that (video) working on the ground in the past. But not quite ready to attempt RC yet. The nature of this project really intrigues me but to put it bluntly, what may seem simple to many of you is very foreign to me and difficult to absorb. But I will keep trying.
So as I get ready to jump into this again it looks as though the preferred hardware is now the Pi 4 B
So are the Pi zeros ok for airside if not being used for RC as well? I believe I read somewhere that support for the Pi Zeros may be phased out?
What I’m thinking now moving forward is utilizing the 3B+ for the airside and picking up a Pi 4 B fo the ground side. seems pretty straight forward. The question I have regarding the Pi 4 B is how much RAM is optimal? I’ll be taking a trip to the city and can pick up the 1 or 2 GB for $29 so obviously in this case would go for the 2GB. But also available is the 4GB for $49 and 8GB for $75 as of this posting.
The adaptors I have on hand are 3 x TL-WN722N v1.0’s, 2 x Ubiquiti WiFiStation (have not done the modification), and 1x Ubiquiti WiFi Station EXT. I check for these on eBay from time to time and grab them when they come up and the price is right!
Did I read somewhere that you can now use up to four adapters on the Ground PI 4 B? If so what would be required to power all that? And would it be that advantageous? Or just unnecessary?
Thanks, guys, any insight would be appreciated!
