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).

About the first image:

The flight was planned with the new version of DroidPlanner and executed with an Iris. Some pre-planning was also needed to find out the correct path to take, and places to add delay waypoints.

The entire flight was made just using DP2, but with a safety pilot ready to take action. Here is the result:

  • Been loving the new versions, keep up the great work! Hope to see Spline and ROI soon.

    DP2 currently only support Copters, for rover and plane support use DP1

    Does it work for ,rovers too ? I ried last week end but it did not seem very functional for a rover ? (still indicating stuff tht make no sense for a rover but rather for a multi).

    I also could not send a mission to the rover APM without DP moving the waypoints in the middle of the atlantic ! Is this a known bug or a rover limitation ?

    Thanks, I'm still running your old version for plane at the moment, it works fine.

    @Hein du Plessis: I`m really busy with the copter stuff, but any volunteers are welcome to work on the plane stuff.
