APM Telemetry using an Android Smartphone

A big enabler for UAVs going forward, especially with respect to commercialization, will be improving telemetry range. On that note, I've released my MAV Downlink Android application and associated tools today.

MAV Downlink opens up a new communication pathway for you to talk to your UAV while it…

AndroCopter - use your smartphone as an autopilot !

Hi all,



I would like to present my latest project, a scratch-built quadcopter with a special autopilot: an Android smartphone !

The phone is onboard (under the battery), and actually computes how to stabilize the drone. Of course, a phone cannot be connected directly to the ESCs, so an Arduino ADK bridges the two.



The idea came from the fact that smartphones now feature a lot of nice components useful for a drone. For example, the Nexus 4 used…

DroidPlanner Follow Me with APM2.5 3DR Radio kit and Samsung Galaxy 7.7 Tab

A very Successful test of the DroidPlanner Android App, connected through a 3DR Radio Kit and the 3DR APM2.5

Before taking off, I ensured that there is a proper connection between the APM and the Tablet and that both devices's GPS is locked. Then I take the drone up and put it in Loiter mode.

Follow Mode must be activated in the Settings of the…

Android Ground Controller, alpha release

Hi ya'll,

So I started off by writing some software to have an arduplane fly in formation with a human piloted hang-glider.   I still plan to finish this project, but I noticed there was a lack of an Android ground controller for Mavlink/Arduplane.  Since much of the code I was writing for my formation flying project was in…
