I’m currently flight tracking with an RPi1 B. It is getting a little overloaded and the plan was/is to get an RPi2 for the job.
As it happens I have an RK3066 based Android HDMI stick that is gathering dust which I fancy utilising. It is possible to install debian/ubuntu on this so that’s where I’ll start.
Dual-core Cortex A9 1.6GHz CPU
1GB RAM DDR3
It has WiFi built it, but I also have a USB ethernet adapter in case that isn’t reliable.
Apart from it being a totally different piece of hardware to what we’re used to, does anyone expect any issues with running the dump1090-mut software? FA software? etc?
If anything I expect the main issue could be librtlsdr.
I guess time will tell, but if anyone can see any obvious obstacles then let me know.
I’ll try and document everything in case someone else happens to have one.
