    Good day!

    I have a full complect of DJI A2 Flight Controller, and I need to use my octocopter indoors - under the ground. Room is ~20*20*5 meters.

    Of course, because of several floors and roof on top it's no GPS signal in that room. But in that room we have own source of coordinates: on ceiling we have a lot of cameras, which can track position of anything. We already tested it on on-ground robots and this system gives good coordinates: +-5 cm.

    Also, we have in that room ultrasonic positioning system, which accuracy is good too.

    Is there any possible variants to send coordinates of drone from that systems on A2 Flight Controler? Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Radio channel, etc?

    We just need to use cool features of A2, like return to the place of take-off, etc.

    I will be very grateful for any help.
