  • APM 2.0 running 2.9.1.

    Motorloa Photon model XT897 Android 4.0.4

    I ordered the Mini USB adapter and also a telemetry from 3DR, but it is back ordered. I went outside so I got sattelites.  I attempted to connect directly to the phone. No problem, except that the HUD does not move. It shows my GPS position, It shows my paramaters, radio RC channels, although they have a 3 to 5 second delay.


    I guess I need to update to the latest Android, anything else?

    Looks like some of those chinese tables have problem to detect FTDI chips. I am still fighting to get my tablet to recognize my modems. 

  • Rana,
    How would I go about doing that in MP?
  • Hello all,

    I have had this running through all versions so far with the latest installed on my Acer Iconia A500 that is rooted running Thors ROM. I am using arducopter 2.9.1 with Mission Planner 1.2.35 mav 1.0. APM 2.5


    I Have not run inot any problems yet or noticed any bugs yet. Basic tuning of PIDs and parameters so far. Havent used waypoints or follow me or anything else yet but will be as soon as I can find some time.

  • Thank you  Kevin for your good work.

    HTC One X+ with Android 4.1.2 is OK, i add it to the Wikipage.



  • Samsung SIII, AND 4.1.2 - OK (21.02.13)

    Yeah APM version is good to have too even thou it's not so important for overall work. More important is firmware.

    I will start to add new devices shortly after we get few more them listed in here.

  • Pipo S2 8" android 4.1.1 with the Pipo S2 ULTIMATE 3G firmware. The ultimate firmware works great on a regular Pipo S2. The 3G firmware fixes the host USB port problems. Works good on version 1.0.5 Andropilot.

    btw - anyone with problems on android 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 should definitely upgrade to 1.0.05 before doing more testing.  thanks!
