By "WiFi (LTE/3G)", I assume you mean Wifi *or* LTE/3G, yes?

Comment by Bill Bonney on November 2, 2015 at 5:30pm

MAV Pilot can connect over either WiFi or 3G/LTE to a single drone. It's just connecting using IP. It's either a TCP connection or UDP listening connection.

Here's a screen shot of Plane support.

That's really cool Bill.  I'm not an iPhone user but it's great to see this!  $9.95 but as a friend once told me, "we all gotta eat!".

@Chris, No Android version of MAV Pilot at this moment in time, but you can use Tower on those devices.

@Randy You can get the 'free version' if you download Find My Drone. It works similar, but doesn't have the extra features like mission planning, text 2 speech audio and parameter editing.

'Free' copies are available to active beta testers. contact me if interested

How can I do to prepare a Mission?
With the map? Can't create a waypoint ....
From Mission menu? I click "Edit" become "Done" and ...........? Can make somthink ....
Could you explain please?

Long press on the Map view will show a a circular context menu to select  a Waypoint (green icon), ROI (target icon), or '+' icon for Guided mode to that point. for support questions.

@Nisouck I did some further investigation. The issue you cannot add a mission item until there is a vali home position reported from the copter/plane. If you arm the vehicle, and disarm a Home mission item will be added. You can then add more mission items. I will fix this in the next release so if no Home Position set, it will create a place holder so a mission can be created. Thx for posting the question. Hope that helps :)

Hi Bill,

Yes, that's true you need a home before. Now, that's ok for me.
