Wow! Love all of features! Droid Planner is so rich in features and options that it's so much like the full-fledged Mission Planner. It's amazing how well the app is laid out and fits a small 7" screen so well. The only thing I didn't like... was how easy it was to select disarm while flying which I think should prompt you before it executes that particular command.
Love it!!! I am really excited about this app. It rocks! Being able to setup waypoints and change parameters while out on the field without the need for a laptop or tablet. My Galaxy Note 3 rocks this app like no other. I do have this I one issue, when activating the "RC" mode after arming through the app, the throttles kick on full blast. Come to find out, in the app, the "rudder" stick controls the throttle instead of the throttle stick itself. Is there any way to change or adjust this??? I really hope so. Also currently running V2.9.1 on Ardupilot. Haven't upgraded firmware yet, been out of flying for a while. ;)
Nice work Arthur! This is an amazing app. (If anyone has had trouble connecting over bluetooth, try unpairing any car stereo, headset devices ect.. on your phone/tab first, then pair with your copter. worked for my galaxy s4.)
This is a great app for APM telemetry and mission planning. I use this on an Asus Tablet when flying a HK Bixler 1.1 with onboard APM 2.5. The ONLY thing this app NEEDS is the ability to use altitude ABOVE GROUND LEVEL instead of ASL. Please Arthur, will you fix this? It caused a crash recently. PLEASE?!
Don't Work Yet. This app can't connect to a Pixhawk PX4 over a direct USB connection but I got it working with 3DR telemetry radios! When I tried to Arm with a GPS lock it said "Bad Throttle".
Follow me is amazing Great tool for hunting. Just make sure you have the right long life battery. The only thing I could not figure out is why the app does not voice notify me when battery is low. Other than that the app works perfectly.
There is too much to list here, but mostly there are changes in the Planning and Parameters screens.
Support for the new telemetry module from 3DR (FT231)
