Thanks to Luciano Zanchi, Gary Mortimer and Remigijus this new release is now out to production.
The main features compared to the last GA release:
- Substantially simplified user interface (the sidebar now gets hidden by default in landscape mode - if you want it back, just choose 'Show Sidebar' in the menu). Most interesting data floats over the map view.
- Bluetooth and on-screen joystick improvements for safety and response rate
- More time spent with the profiler, should be even faster than old versions
- Special UIs for phones with small screens
If you would like to use the bluetooth or on screen joysticks, please be extra careful because that code has been used by less than 2% of the users. If you need to grab control away with the RC xmitter, just toggle the mode switch or press the cancel button on the tablet/joystick.
Here's Luciano's review of this feature:
Flown 3 lipos controlling copter with Andropilot only using new icons and joysticks. RC radio left only for emergency. Everything OK in STAB, LOITER, GUIDED, LAND, etc.
IMHO this version can be promoted to GA...perhaps with some notice for beeing careful with [Arm] icon
Thanks so much - this particular release was a lot of fun to futz with...
