Very cool! If there was a way to reduce latency and keep the session open longer, it would be even better. :)

Very, very cool. I've got a Pixhawk-powered fixed wing airplane and I was thinking about doing something like this, but I don't think I'm as brave as you ;) Do you have the source available? I had never heard of 2lemetry and I'm curious to check it out!

This is pretty cool, and that's speaking as someone who probably owns 10+ quadcopters now. Will be interesting to see where this leads since I have a few pixhawks of my own. -Nick

Yea, giving Alexa commands every 8 seconds could get pretty tiring.

Since the controllers have built-in waypointing and GPS, you could probably reduce the command frequency a bit. -Nick
