YouTube Live Video Streaming Drone #RaspberryPi #drone #droneday

Cool idea and project from Mahmut on Hackaday.io:

We thought it would be cool to stream footage from a drone as this type of video has become a main-stay in commercial videos. Footage from drones at concerts, festivals, sporting events, and live news coverage is often used and replaces traditional video coverage. In the past the footage from the first-person view (FPV) had to be copied and then uploaded to the web whereas the Sixfab LTE shield lets us upload directly to Youtube from the drone, live. You are no longer bound by the wifi network the drone was previously connected to, as long as you have a phone signal, uploading is easy. Our next step will be to incorporate the GPS data from the shield to our live video feed so we can share with viewer speed, altitude, and position data.

The drone used in the video is a DJI F450. The Sixfab 4G/LTE Shield pins fit seamlessly with the Raspberry Pi and this made things very easy. The power regulator also allowed us to power the entire system with the drone’s battery.
