Description

If sensor hub and position (gps) data is succesfully implemented in future versions, it would be feasible to have capability to transmit position data in realtime to a spesified ip-address/UDP port. A simple message format could include timestamp+id+lat+lon+alt.

  • Target version set to 3.0 FrSky hub and sensors

I agree that this could be useful. I think that it should include model Id or name as well though.

Synopsis
  • Possibility for all channels to be "POST"'ed or "GET" to an URL
Challenges:
  • Metadata, (factor, offset, units) - In same message, or provide API?

This is also related to the feature to expose channels to other apps (#384). And it might be best that this feature could be made as a separate app using the exposed channels.

keeping priority low as this is a debug/custom feature unless someone exposes an open server everyone can "upload" these tracks to. Would need to solve global uniqueness or authentication if public solution
