Disk images

tinypilot-28022018.img.xz

This image is compressed with xz and first must be extracted.

With linux, you can extract with unxz then write the image, or use xzcat directly eg:

        xzcat tinypilot-28022018.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sda bs=4M
      
For windows, try winrar or 7zip to extract.

See the raspberry documentation for writing disk images.

Tinypilot is a special linux distribution based on tinycore linux This is more stable than openplotter and light weight running out of ram. It works well on the single core raspberry zero and zero-W, but can also work on any raspberry pi.

Requires inertial sensors, preferably mpu9255 or mpu9250. Optional to connect a nokia5110 LCD display to the spi pins, and to use a 4 or 5 button keypad wire to gpio. Also an optional IR sensor on GPIO pin 4 can be used by any TV remote.
