I lied! ADSB drone RC plane alarm with radarscope

If you fly a drone or RC plane then you will really want to build or buy one of these devices because it can make a huge difference to the safety of your flying.

    WANT!!!! LINK or parts list?

  2. Mactac on December 21, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Very, very cool. it would be really nice to be able to see the altitude (if possible). An aircraft at 10,000 ft is a much different story for us RC people than one at 400ft.

  3. Paul Riggs on December 21, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    I want one !!!

  4. Daniel Brooker on December 21, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Open source it and put it on GitHub so people can contribute and add any features they want.

  5. Atomik Laser on December 21, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Are you still using a Dalo pen for a copper top etch Bruce?.. so retro.. heh..

  6. RiverMan RC on December 21, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Is there a parts list available? I have my RTL SDR, but would like to order the screen and Pi 4, plus whatever else is currently on your device. I know it is a work in progress, but I like how it is at the moment.

  7. Tate Belden on December 21, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Next step is to add a small GPS module so the device knows where it is. Center point is self setting. Most are a simple serial connection, shouldn’t be too difficult to add in. But, yea – feature creep and expense. Maybe as an option?? Eager to see your source show up on github.

  8. smokeintheeyes on December 21, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    parts list and guide please

  9. andrew's rc planes RC fun on December 21, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Bruce could you list the parts you used to build your adsb alarm please

  10. jeryjohn on December 21, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Where can i buy this?

  11. Lindsay Heyes on December 21, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Hey Bruce, does your ADSB alarm work in the UK and the USA? I gather the setup is different in the USA. And how do we get to build one?

  12. TealcJack on December 21, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Bruce, your link does not work. It takes me to a middle-aged wig page.

  13. Willy Tepes on December 21, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Nice for scanning for other transmitters too. This is exactly what I wanted to locate police radios. I can put it to any frequency I want, can’t I? LOL
    It would be typical of me to suggest something like this, but whoever did it, bravo.

  14. Colin Mulligan on December 21, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Please provide the link where I can buy one of those radarscope’s with the rings?

  15. Joseph Hacker on December 21, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    You can get an RTL-SDR that’s really small on amazon and that would help you make the total package size smaller.

  16. Mike Ppg on December 21, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Bruce, please consider code that would allow your receiver to be flown. I fly a paramotor and your low-cost solution is exactly what myself and may others have been looking for. Thanks for all you do for the modeling community.

  17. Asy4life-67 on December 21, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Wow! that is a interesting what the maximum detecting range this can be design for?

  18. Sam S on December 21, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Is there anyway to set this up so that the center is the rc plane? Would be nice to know what is around the plane if flying at a longer range.

  19. FlatEarther InNH on December 21, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    AWESOME! Can’t wait for your final details. Def want to build/buy one.

  20. Simon Edwards on December 21, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Really excited to have a go at this project Bruce, please could you let me know when do you hope to release the software and parts list?, thank you!

  21. RobWhittlestone on December 21, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Hi Bruce I really like your device. Will you publish plans? (No links currently in the info section).

    Have you heard of FLARM? Here in Europe it’s quite popular with glider, hang glider, ultralight, light aircraft, helicopter and even parachute operators. It is low-cost but doesn’t operate on the 1090 MHz band rather 868 MHz. I believe variants also receive 1090 MHz ADS-B.

    Next stage: equip your RC plane with ADS-B in and autopilot, and interpret nearby threats such that the autopilot avoids being in the near path of an ADS-B source… You’re welcome!

    All the best, Rob

  22. TheBoatPirate on December 21, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    bruce needs to run caa

  23. Snypez on December 21, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    You better let us all know when the source is available on git or whatever so we can contribute too! Awesome project Bruce!

  24. bill hanna on December 21, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Same as AIS on Shipping & Yachts .

  25. Peter Robinson on December 21, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Bruce, any news on the details to home build ADSB ALARM?

  26. Tyler Byrd on December 21, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Very nice video, Bruce! I always enjoy the knowledge you drop on us. Where can I pick up this kit?

  27. Ruby S on December 21, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    This is the coolest thing ever.

  28. Dave Amies on December 21, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    I have a suggestion for your ADSB alarm, and maybe this can be a v1.1 software update, simply adjust the beep rate/pitch for when a plane is in the outer, mid or inner ring, planes in multiple rings? the innermost ring with a plane determines the beep rate used.

  29. Driving Drones on December 21, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    Got a Pi here that I’ve had for months looking for a project – just found it! looking forward to building this!

  30. Navigator Photografix on December 21, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Hi Bruce did you end up putting out the list of components ? A wiki ?

  31. Brian Vattiat on December 21, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    This happened near my house the day before you posted this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tusorJzGR0I

    Plane involved had no ADSB!

    Thanks for posting these videos. I have no experience in aviation but find your channel informative and entertaining.

  32. Charles Jarman on December 21, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Hi Bruce, have you got the next build video ready? Or are you still in development? We are dying to build one of your genius devices here! Keep safe.

  33. Jerry Boics on December 21, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    Like top gun. Not one bogey, we got 2 bogies! I repeat, 2 bogies!

  34. Hyperlitic on December 21, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    Couldn’t it be certified one-off as a single device that a pilot could carry?

  35. VultureDroid on December 21, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    Fantastic stuff. Wow

  36. Matrix Clone on December 21, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Bruce, are you ever gonna release any build info on this device?

  37. moore5000 on December 21, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    So whomever mentioned that thanks.
    Loads of credit there lol

  38. Graham W2000 on December 21, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    Thats a great gadget Bruce I will deffo be building one when you have got all the info etc. together it works really great . Thanks Graham

  39. Sprocket on December 21, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    That’s actually bloody brilliant, mate. When can we pay you for these?

    EDIT: What. You’re putting the plans up so we can build those? Holy crap. Thanks!

  40. Christian Boyd on December 21, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    Hi Bruce was wondering are you likely to be doing the build video for this as really looking forward to making one myself or do you have a link to the software to make it plz

  41. jeffsav on December 21, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Bruce, I understand its a Pi-3 or 4? Aside from that , I can’t find any references to parts required? Can you advise of the parts required to make the device and you mentioned a website for programming same? I went to the Banggood link thinking it would be there?

  42. revb0 on December 21, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    First class Bruce, can’t wait for the build details.

  43. paulinfrance5 on December 21, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    I would love to have one but building it is way beyond me,, So who will commercialise it ?.

  44. RiverMan RC on December 21, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    Any updates on this?

  45. Egil on December 21, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    My boats had two collision avoidance systems onboard. One based on the radio and the second on the radar. Both were displayed on the electronic map.

  46. Terraswell WaveRider on December 21, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    It even has a radar screen..so cool

  47. Yourname Here on December 21, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    that’s cool.
    Now you’ll know when to launch your stealth cruise missile.

    😉

  48. Bryan Teany on December 21, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    Very cool. I live about 7 nm from one of the busiest municipal airports in the US. Will the volume be adjustable?

  49. Ecookman Ice on December 21, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Reg/alt should be displayed by the dot!

  50. Nasuno Rahl on December 21, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Will this work in the US? Where do I throw my money?
