Add FR24 to RPi FlightAware Pro Stick
« on: March 23, 2019, 06:33:56 PM »

I am getting a little confused with all the instructions as I am not familiar with the Raspberry Pi OS and all its variations.  With FlightAware stopping support for data via PlanePlotter, I bought a Raspberry Pi with PiAware and the blue FlightAware Pro Stick.  I have that running and all is fine with it.

However, now FR24 has decided to stop taking info from Windows users (I've been feeding FR24 for several years from my SBS-1er), so I would like to feed via my Raspberry Pi.  Unfortunately, as I said, I am not really familiar with the setup of the PiAware and the feeding of data from it.  I note on the FR24 website at https://www.flightradar24.com/share-your-data that if I use this command:

sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - https://repo-feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"

that should set it up.

However, then I read that FlightAware's 1090 dump is proprietary and does not play with others.  Does anyone please have a SIMPLE guide as to how I can add a feed to FR24 from my FlightAware RPi, or would I be better off buying a separate Raspberry Pi and use that for FR24 and possible future feeds?

Thanks Anmer.  I had already seen this and it still confuses me as I get the impression I have to start from scratch rather than just adding a FR24 feed.
