"Agreed on the reasons behind a RESTful interface. We are a good ways down the road with this in fact so we should be able to get you testing this very soon. I'll shoot you our docs off-thread and we can go from there."

"Yep, we are still working on this. The backend has been completely re-written since the initial beta and we have been working on an Android / HTML5 version of the smartphone app. We have QGroundControl integration through our backend as well. Lots…"

We've been focused on…
