  • I read that according to the Open Accessory specs you need to supply the Android device with 500mA/5V changing power. For something that is battery powered itself that seems like a lot. Does the PhoneDrone board do that or how do you avoid that?

    Awesome to see this moving ahead.


    I have one  non-engineer background question. The connection I see is

    Android Phone-->Phone Drone Board-->Receiver-->Servos(Output)

    So does this unit work by calling it at all or does there always have to be a physical connection to a mobile android phone?
