Hi ya'll. With the kind help of a number of testers, wiki writers and users it seems like Andropilot is now out of beta.  So if you'd like an Android based ground control station I think is is basically ready for general deployment.  You can download it from the Play store as "Andropilot".

See our group here (link includes feature list, required hardware and getting started guide)

And the very nice wiki user manual curated by Peter Meister (please help by adding to it).  There are a few missing features, but the daily new releases are basically over.  Every couple of weeks there should a minor release.

If you have questions, please start a new thread in the group and hopefully someone can help you.  (I'll be mostly away from the forum for the next couple of weeks)

I think this is fantastic and I would love to try this on my Galaxy S2, but...

Are there any plans to widen the compatibility of Andropilot?

Ooh, I see it's supposed to. I'll have to figure out why Play Store won't download it to my device

Great work Kevin. Receiving the updates via the play store is nice.

I just saw that my OS is a bit last year. Time to jelly bean it, I think!

Any information about compatibility with HTC Flyer ? 

Comment by Kevin Hester on February 21, 2013 at 8:39am

Re: HTC Flyer - From reading this it should work, but you would need external power for the radio (this was an early tablet and apparently they don't officially support USB HOST)

Great work, Kevin. Now if only it would stop raining.
