iMavlink - iOS based arducopter ground control app - Looking for beta testers!

As some of you may know, I have been working on a GCS for iOS devices called iMavlink.

It is currently in its final stages before release, but I would really like to have some beta testers to squish the final bugs.

If you are interested, I am currently selling the BLE Device that accompanies the app for $60 on my store.

This device is required for the app to work, you can create your own, however I cannot guarantee that it is supported. (If you do DIY, let me know if it doesn't work on the forum and I'll do what I can to implement support for it.

The app will be selling for $5.99 USD, however it will be free for the first 4 purchases of the BLE Repeater for beta testing purposes!

Thanks guys, please let me know if you have any questions! I have a website for the app at

Looks good Tom. I'm keen to test, how do I go about getting the app? I already have a ble bridge that should be suitable

very nice!

Will it work also with 3DR Solo by connecting via UDP into the Slo Wifi network (analog to what Tower does on Android, or MP on Windows?

Hi Stephan, I have not yet looked into that, however it should be possible, I may give it a go one the current app is worked out. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Tom best of Luck with Imavlink!

So as you know now, this isn't ready for 3DR Solo?

Comment by Tom on July 27, 2016 at 3:57pm
Correct Steve, It is not capable of UDP connections at the moment, however if you connect a radio telemetry module to the solo, it should be able to connect then.

Thanks Tom. As the others have suggested, having UDP connectivity would be a huge bonus! This is the way things are going. My systems use a UDP connection from GCS to UAV.

Native connectivity via bluetooth as well, for us crossfire users. I assume that since this is bluetooth anyway, a native connection direct to Crossfire is supported?

Comment by Tom on July 28, 2016 at 4:32pm
Hi Euan,

The app only supports Bluetooth 4.0 Low energy, as the crossfire uses an older Bluetooth system it won't be supported.

Thanks, Tom
