Adding FlightRadar24 feed to my FlightAware raspberry pi PiAware install

Since a week or so I am running PiAware from FlightAware on 1 of my Raspberries. It’s running fine. Thanks to Chris Johnson I also managed to feed Flightradar24 from the same feed. This are the steps I did on my raspberry through the shell. I don’t run a fancy container solution like Chris does on his setup so I had to steal some configuration and instructions from his github page.

Pibow Coupe enclosure for my Raspberry Pi 2

When I ordered my Raspberry Pi 2 I also ordered a little enclosure called the Pibow Coupe. Since the layout of the Pi 2 is the same I assumed every case would fit. Unfortunately that was not the case for this specific enclosure. But with a little help of my Dremel I managed to adjust it a little bit and it now fits perfectly. When you build the case around your Pi board they little layers are numbered.

Raspberry Pi 2 arrived

Last month Microsoft announced support for Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi 2. That was a perfect excuse to order one myself as well (I ordered mine at MCM Electronics). Although it was in backorder it took less than a week to arrive. I also ordered a good power supply and a nice little case. Of course you need a memory card. 8Gb micro SD card should be enough for most situations.
