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
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.
