Are there any drone enthusiasts out amongst the Windows Central forums? And if so how are you guys integrating Windows 10 (both from a software and a devices aspect) into your usage? I\’m wanting to get into drone flying myself and was curious if Windows 10 lent itself to drone use (control, programming, etc). Thanks!

I\’m flying a beefed up 510 sized TBS Discovery PRO which has a CUAV Pixhack Autopilot installed ( derivate of the 3D Robotics Pixhawk Autopilot ). I\’m using APM Planner 2 on a Gen1 Surface PRO as a Ground Station for diagnostics on the ground and in flight. Wireless communication between the two Systems is provided by the TBS Crossfire Tx/Rx System which can reach up to 100km on a suitable location ( you standing on a mountain ) and with proper additional equipment ( high gain antennas installed ) – Though I\’ve never flown further than 1km away =) As for the Remote I\’m now using a FrSky Horus X12S which has excellent configuration capabilities once you install OpenTX on it – The next best thing.An cheaper alternative to the Horus X12S would otherwise be it\’s predecessor: FrSky Taranis X9D+ I\’m not gonna lie though… The frame and some of it\’s tech is pre last Gen and totally outdated in comparison to a DJI Mavic which costs up to 3x less providing more – Though not with connectivity to W10 / W10M
