DroidPlanner 2.3.3 is out on Google Play Store. This release shouldn’t change much for the average user (just a couple of bug fixes), but it’s a huge improvement for developers.
The changes include (here is the full change log):
Support for Hybrid mode.
Logs upload to DroneShare (opt in)
Miscellaneous improvements on mission planning code.
A couple of bugfixes, for example making mode changes work with Hexacopters (and all other copter configurations)
Decoupling of drone-specific code from Android UI code
The last item means that all the code relating to the drone and mission state is in a separate library, and can be reused in other GCS applications (it could even be used as the base for a PC/MAC application).
