FlightGear as a virtual cockpit for FPV RC model plane

Model RC Airplane with receiver and video transmitter. Video transmitter transmits video from raspberry pi.

Flight gear, running without scenery, with plane gauges connected to ArduPilot (done https://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/flightge ... ation.html ), with 360 camera streaming instead of scenery. The pilot's head in flight gear is controlled by servos of ArduPilot.

Obviously, don't show wings - make them visible from 360 camera

Is this something you are doing or is it a development request? Development requests normally fall on deaf ears, unfortunately. Pretty much since people here usually only work on what interest them the most, since they work on FlightGear in what is left of their spare time after work, homework, family and chores have taken their time.


Though they are not necessarily related to FlightGear, you might be interested in some of the posts by Curt, pretty much the original developer of FlightGear:
