"I was planning to build something similar. I've recently bought FT311D Development Board that works as Android Accessory (no need for expensive USB OTG enabled phone, no Bluetooth latency). It has 4 PWM channels and costs about…"

"That is a awesome project.. I would like to contribute, since I consider that the way to go in term of Autopilots would be work on high level programming instead of that low level that APM offers... How can I help?"

"Hi John. Can You give some information about your code, to contribute somehow for everyone?   Many thanx in advance. IMO the core of our adventure in opensource country is working togheter. And actually I do not approve the policy of not…"

"Same as the guy above, I'm of a mind to try and make work something very similar to what you've described 2 years ago! Do you still have plans to share the code?"

"Hi John, Nice stuff. I'm working on this too. I'm using UDB with MatrixPilot. I use the LOGO scripting language to do most of the logic for thermalling and geofencing. Also I use that to position the glider mostly upwind until a thermal is…"

"Have you made any progress on this? I'm looking into making my first drone and I'd love to have it running Android because of all the extra computational power it has. You said you might release you code - have you done that yet? Also, how…"

johnm545 replied to Louis's discussion BIXLER CRASH THREE TIMES IN THREE DAYS WITH APM2 !!
"I've had similar incidents with a bixler.  They develop nasty stall behaviour with some weight on them, especially if the weight isn't centered laterally.  You have to level the wings using rudder and aileron before applying up…"

"Hi John, very interesting project. I signed up just to comment XD. Using the mobile network is definitely the way to go in order to perform long range missions. Here are my two cents as Android programmer: The phone doesn't need to be the…"

Autonomous Thermaling with an Android drone

Posted on February 6, 2014 at 4:00am 6 Comments

Hi folks,

Time for an update on my Android-powered fixed-wing drone project, which I’ve just picked up again after 1.5 years of neglect.  After trying a few different…

Running an autopilot on Android

Posted on July 15, 2012 at 4:22am 22 Comments

Here's a fun little project I've been working on for ~6 months now.  It started when I looked at my phone and thought this has everything needed for an autopilot - 3-axis gyros, accelerometers, magnetometers, GPS, fast CPU, plus a nice big touch screen and more wireless modems than you can point a…

Hardware/software in loop simulation with Microsoft Flight Sim X

Posted on June 12, 2012 at 9:54am 4 Comments

Hi folks,

I've been working on a small C# program to enable hardware in loop simulation with FSX.  It's working nicely now, so I've posted the code up at http://code.google.com/p/fsxio/

I've been using it to test my Android…
