Bluetooth Telemetry Bridge - Last Chance


Just a friendly reminder, now is the last chance to grab a Bluetooth Telemetry Bridge before the Kickstarter ends tonight at 10:30PM EST. We've already had an overwhelming response and reached our goal in less than 24 hours! After tonight, there will be a bit of delay before we can take any more orders because we'll prioritize Kickstarter pre-orders.

Here is a link to the Kickstarter Page and some more information from my original post here on DIY Drones.

If you're not familiar with the Bluetooth Bridge, it's a simple device that allows you to connect to your 3DR Radio or RFD900 telemetry stream to any Android phone or tablet supporting a ground station. The most popular ground station for Android is the DroidPlanner. The device is very easy to use, just power it on using the internal rechargeable battery (recharge with a USB cable). The battery lasts for over 5 hours of continuous operation. Right now, the Bluetooth Bridge does not support iOS devices because Apple requires a special type of Bluetooth hardware to integrate properly.

The Bluetooth Bridge can also help for normal laptop groundstation work since it allows you to place the telemetry antenna in any location where it might have better reception.

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions about the project in the comments below. Thanks again for your support!

    Cool!  Actually - I think Andropilot might be slightly more popular than the very nice also Droidplanner) ;-)

    Andropilot should work with this as well.
