DroidPlanner 2 - Official Stable Release


It is our pleasure to announce the first public release of DroidPlanner 2.0 on the Google Play Store.  It represents a complete rethinking of the way users interact with autonomous aircraft.  

The goal was to simplify workflows, provide more glanceable information and increase overall reliability for the most common user interactions. The biggest changes are as follows:

  • Completely redesigned graphical user interface

  • Mission editing including survey

  • Quick actions including Land and Loiter

  • In-app RC Radio Configuration

  • Phone-specific layout

  • Improved Guided Mode

  • Dialog for Bluetooth device selection

In DroidPlanner 2.0 you’ll find two primary screens for interaction: Telemetry and Planning.  From the telemetry screen you can quickly assess overall aircraft health and what it is doing.  You can also enter Guided mode at your current altitude with a long press--give it a try!  Other quick actions from the Telemetry screen include Land, Home (RTL), and Loiter.

The Planning screen has been redesigned to allow users to quickly make and manage simple missions while at home or in the field.  Takeoff, Waypoint, Land, and Survey are currently supported, with more mission construction elements coming soon.

You’ll find some features left out from the original DroidPlanner.  They will be added back in soon after thorough testing.  Notably, plane support, more mission items, improvements to Follow-Me, and more support for in-flight tuning are around the corner.

Special thanks to all the devs, including Azrin, Rob, Fredia, Paku, David, and Jason.

    Nice plug for DroidPlanner 2.0!

    We are working on a new ways to handle, and supervise the progress of AUTO missions.

  • Developer


    Yes, it has. Most of the warnings are implemented like: Battery, GPS lock, Connection state.

  • This is great. 

    One mode suggestion I have would be a rewind type mode. A button where when pressed it pauses it progression for xx seconds and then goes back through the waypoints it came from to a landing. 

  • This looks great! I can't wait to give it a try this week or weekend. Does it have voice feedback at all?

    @ CyLLlKA:

    It's possible to do what you suggested, but there are a lot of corner cases  that need to be discussed line: "What happens when you have more than 2 waypoints selected? And if only one is selected?  Why not just add a waypoint and use the arrows to move it's location on the list? Please join me on the forum to discuss this:

    @Mike Downey: You can install both at the same time (different icons too). If you feel like sharing what makes you uncomfortable with DPv2 we can try to fix it. Please open a post at the forum.

    @Guy Cefalu: 3DRobotics is supporting the development, which means their products get priority. But we try to fully suport all projects using ArduPlane and Arducopter code, and to some extent projects compatible with mavlink.

  • Nice looking UI

  • @Mike, I have both installed.
