It worked out well. Tape the android to the bottom of my 1:10 scale C172 and buzz down the street. Used 70CM ham ATV band and 6m rc band to avoid FPV system interfering on wifi. Since it was a sucess i might get the battery pack for the ras pi rig and hang the antenna on the bottom. Got more signals and only wasted solar eleftricity.

Just thought I would share my oddball experiment for other people to try. Taping the android on did rather well.

I will try this with my phantom 2 quadrotor. I will just attach my phone to the drone and do a flight over a premium neighborhood. since wigle works while driving, flying about 10-15 mph should be fine. the height by FAA rule has to be under 400 ft alt. I also need to be close to the ground to capture the wifi bubble- so probably about 80 - 100 ft should be fine..
