FPV GPS for partially sighted plane flyer

Hi, New to FPV but I have been experimenting with FPV in an attempt to keep my father flying as he is has just become partially sighted. We have experimented with a basic FPV setup on a CUB to prove concept and it looks as if this solution will keep him in the air for now.
I am wanting to expand the system to have:

  • More reliable down link
  • GPS or home indicator (to help locate home position)
  • Possibly altitude info

We have basic knowledge but require pointing in the correct direction reference the Tx/GPS/Camera

Thanks, Chris.

    You could be looking at something like a Pixhawk flight controller setup.

    That is essentially a full autonomous flight controller that provides all GPS information which can be displayed through On Screen Display.

    Have a google of it and see how much - or little - it can do.
