  • Ahmad, you aren´t in the correct group to find good respond, this a ground control with Tower discussion group, better try here: http://diydrones.com/group/arducopterusergroup

  • 130db bird caller i use and it is very loud, Cala.

    drones are coming very popular here in Australia for locating and controlling

    feral animals, such as pigs. i dont know yet, how well pigs would respond to just

    a quad. But put a barking dog on board and pig panic guarantee,

  • you can use the two things or only google, perhaps here is better explain http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-terrain-following.html

    Randy recommends not to fly very low if you don't have a findranger sensor because is not so precise.

  • Cala... when you say train following is that with an optical flow sensor or do you mean it will use topographical data from Google etc?? 

  • Perhaps here https://github.com/DroidPlanner/Tower/pulls or here http://discuss.ardupilot.org/c/ground-control-software/tower you have more luck that devs read your requests.

  • Terrain following is coming soon in new beta release, perhaps it's usefull for you?

    I'm thinking to do something like you with pigs in corn, how is the speaker that you use?

  • have been using tower for about 3 months now, and i really like it.

    i have been playing around this year, chasing birds off a orchard with a loud

    speaker and flashing lights. i fly a hilly terrain, but i can not set way points below

    zero AGL.

    apply this function to the app and i will donate 100 dollars.

     i love this app, but i just need a little more.

  • @ Greg I could not agree more!! In many ways it seems far and away more advanced than all the CGS. Complete missions with simply dragging your finger across then screen.. the way you can edit missions too is awesome. And one of the best feature I love about it is in the full param list it actually tells you what the options are and mean. Many times in MP you can select mode 1-10 etc.. but if you don't know what mode , say 2 is what's the point. Tower tells you what the options actually are. I know I'm preaching to the choir. It used to be Droid Planner and Arthur was the lead guy... he really kicked butt on this app and developed it very fast. I too would gladly hit the 'donate' button if it were an option. I will say one downside has always seemed to be stability but I mostly attribute that to the droid enviroment itself. The whole platform seems more buggy than say iPad. I would REALLY love Tower for iPad :] !!!!!
