Re: How to find out the height and speed of the RC planes?

When I first bought my townhouse, I thought the huge park behind was
good.

A device installed on my kid's 4wheeler, which contains a digcam censor,
a powerful uP with some field programmable gate array chips, an air rifle
which can shoot a plastic bullet 200 meters, plus some sensors yet to find
out. My electronics will detect the speed, direction and height of the
plane, determine the firing angle and time of my rifle and fire.

What are the algorithms to calculate the speed, direction and height of the
plane?

Any new ideas are also welcome.

**** Where are you located,I'm sure the local police will be VERY interested
in your illegal rifle!!

Or are you just an insignificant troll?

Just making some physics study here so don't be serious.

speed,

My air defence system is on a fixed platform now, with campass mounted on
the rotating
camera to see its direction.

I was aware that from the shape of the plane I can google and identify the
model, from the
model I can find out the dimension, and together with focal length I can
calculate the distance
from the camera. With the angle and orientation of my camera, I can
calculate the angel of the
plane with respect to the ground, and the direction it flies, plus the
height.

Is this a good plan?

A few choice modifications and an extra button or two on your remote
control might be fun. One of these switch covers would be nice:

Or an Aegis system made out of Lego and Cyberslam missiles...

This is getting better all the time.Most impressed with the air defence
system idea incorporating the glue filled watergun and the cotton wires.
I love this bit  "With the angle and orientation of my camera, I can
calculate the angel of the

height."
If thats the case you wont be able to shoot them down.They are protected by
god.
Now you are getting into some seally serious stuff.

Few months back I went to Lego's sales website, but didn't see it.
