New Demo of Mavelous, the mobile Mavlink GCS

John Wiseman and I have been working on the browser-based frontend for Mavproxy which he announced a few weeks ago. Here's a new demo video I made controlling an ArduCopter:

Heres a screenshot of the new and improved user interface with PFD:

We're actively developing on Github. You can start using Mavelous today!

Are there any plans to get mavproxy or equivalent on a serial -> wifi access point or something? So an Ipad/iphone can be used?

There must be something out there on offer which has a serial port and wifi, runs linux and is under $50. Stick an Xbee on it and it's done.

Would be pretty cool as you could have your main GCS on a laptop, and a mini HUD/critical telemetry on your iphone which is velcro'd to your tx!

Not to mention other people milling about could also connect and view the telem on their phone.

Awesome stuff!!  If multiple clients are connected ( one on laptop and another on a phone), are both able to add waypoints and commands at the same time?

Andoid GCS FTW. Lets see more of it running on the smaller phone :D

Sounds cool but you really need a better video to show exactly whats going on with the software and how everything is linked together. I had a hard time following the video.

Yes, it runs on Android phones & tablets.  It will run on anything with a web browser.

Yes, multiple clients can all be connected simultaneously and add waypoints (well, a single waypoint--there's no mission editing yet, just double clicking to fly to a location).

John, the README at might help you understand the pieces and how they fit together.

With this release what Android device to buy? My G1 is really out of date. Too many choices.
