The 'MTA' - Proof of concept, using ESP8266 module to decode and display NMEA aircraft data
Follow on to the previous video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WD-4_aBVQEI) I decided to see how small I could make a portable version of the ‘MTA’ as I like to call it (Mini Traffic Aware).
I knocked up a quick and dirty front case in FreeCad and 3D printed it to hold the pieces.
The system is running off 2xAA batteries as that is all I had close to hand when doing the video but it surprisingly worked (it should have 3.3v ideally but on 2.4 it ran up and connected)
