At Tengri we are prototyping a variety of Ground control station form factors and layouts.
Using the Tengri Ground Control unit, a professional ground control station can be assembled
in less than an hour. If you have not already used a Tengri Ground Control station, first impression
is always a feeling of superior control of the UAV and payload over using an RC transmitter.
Using a 3 axis joystick with throttle control instead of thumbsticks and quick access to key
functions through the use of buttons and knobs helps a great deal. Easy/secure transport, quick setup time, and comfortable flying makes for a much more professional operation. Clients and customers are bound to be impressed.
We will publish some guidelines to developing ground stations based on our learnings.
