    For our senior capstone project my team and I will be modifying an off-the-shelf quadcopter to locate and hover near a Bluetooth wireless signal for the best signal strength. My question is this: Can the Cheerson CX-20 update its flight plan while in flight? If so, how can this be accomplished?

    We have already purchased the CX-20 and the telemetry kit based on the limited amount of information there is on this. Our basis for purchasing the CX-20 was cost and that it is capable of autonomous flight. I recall that I found a reference to the inflight updates from a web source. Unfortunately, I cannot find that source.

    We will be mounting a Bluetooth transceiver to the quadcopter that will locate a signal and communicate with another Bluetooth transceiver connected to a laptop that is running the signal software and the flight planning software. The Bluetooth software and the mission planning software will talk to each other using an algorithm that will determine the best hover location and modify the flight plan. It is our hope that the telemetry kit will allow us to update the flight plan in flight.

    Thank you all for you help!
