Drone + TTNMapper

anyone ever attach a gps enabled node to a drone and try an experimental ttnmapper flight to check gateway visibility?

I believe people have skipped that and are on to High Altitude Ballooning …

I have done it the other way around, with plain LoRa, checked visibility of nodes on the ground when the receiver is on board an RC plane.

I thought about it but have not done it.

But as you already wrote the measurement should be marked as “experimental”.

An experiment is a way to keep unrealistic coverage measurements away from the main map. Experiments should be used when coverage is mapped from aeroplanes, balloons or any similar unrealistic altitudes.
