DroidPlanner Telemetry Bluetooth Bridge

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.

Id like to make one of those for the 3DR radios, really cool.

Very cool Steven.  Please post instructions or offer for sale. :)

I've been dabbling with this myself, but nearly as nice!  And screen printed too!  I imagine you could easily sell 1000+ of these units.

Yeah, I would only want one for 3dr. No point running on 2.4Ghz when all my control is on it.

What's the range. I think it would nice to put the module up on a twenty foot mast for good reception.

I may have to get a 3DR radio now to integrate it onto the PCB giving the option to either plug in a 3DR radio or XBEE.

Anyone have an injection moulding machine :-D

Possible to make this work with RFD900?

Sure,why not. Any serial comm device that does not require any device driver should work IMO.
