RaspPi 4 is able to run FlightAware 3.7.1

Yesterday I have tested to use a new RasPi 4 with 4 GB RAM together with FlightAware 3.7.1.
and the FlightAware SDR PRO with integrated Filter.
Success ! It works fine !
Instead of a PiAware 3 Image on SD I have generated a new RaspBian Image with integrated Pi 4 Drivers. At next I installed a FlightAware 3.7.1 as descripted in FlighAware documentation.

The only “ugly” thing must be noted speciallly :
The Pi 4 without a cooling fan still very hot. It seems to be not really a long term stable platform.
Therefore a good and effective cooling system is essential.
Power ? More than some classes better than Pi 3.

Colleague of mine has reported the same temperature topic.

He’s feeding FR24, FA, PF and Opensky without additional tasks on the device, but the temperature is already > 80°C

Try the POE fan or a heat sink using adhesive not tape.
