Pleased with the way this has turned out for a Saturday project :-)
It compliments Arthur Benemanns DroidPlanner app to give a wireless link between the aircrafts radio and a Bluetooth connection to the Android tablet.
- Its fitted with a 1000mah LiPo battery and charge circuit which is chargeable by a small USB slot at the bottom of the unit.
- Ultrabright LEDs for the power and Bluetooth link for sunny days.
- BT LED blinks when there is no connection and goes solid when connection is made.
+1 -Build and sell!
Steve, great work... been meaning to do this as well. Count me in...
hat kind of tablet?
You can make your own telemetry modules, you need two
HopeRF HM-TRP modules and suitable circuitry to power them. Then run on 3.3V, will need a bluetooth module that is 3.3V for the ground station.
It's easier to make a ground station one up ( so you can use UART) and buy the air module.
This is excellent, count me in!
Is 3DR 433mhz compatible though ?
It might be worth 3D printing a case for it.
I was just about to research on how to get my kindle fire HD to display data while flying as i don't want to lug around a laptop!
Im a new user to APM, so i have no telementry just yet! A DIY would be amazing if you can sort one out? Make sure you leave a paypal link so we can donate!
Sure,why not. Any serial comm device that does not require any device driver should work IMO.
