  • Great! Huge thanks!

  • Hi
    Some questions
    Is it possible to restart the mission or change the WP. Like in Mission planner

    And why is DO_Digicam_Control not supported?

    Even after loading a mission from the drone, the commands disappear.

    Even if they are not supported it should be possible to view them or pass through.

    Reason is I want a generic mission and use Tower to fly it and don't want to bring the laptop with me.
  • @benbojangles it's possible, and that's being done when connecting to a solo vehicle.

    Can you shoot me a message with the details of what you're trying to accomplish.

  • you got a deal Fredia

  • Hello, Is it possible to connect to Tower 3.2.1 using UDP for both Video & Telemetry?

    I've been attempting this test, but was unable to do it, so I thought I would ask so I can rule it out and focus on adjusting my UDP streams.

    Wonderful work btw :)

  • Thumbs up for video support!

  • Thanks @DavidFolts, but the app doesn't ask for monetary contributions, and the only contributions we ask of our users is for their feedback so we can keep improving the app!

    We also appreciate additions to the Tower wiki and/or the Tower source code :)

  • Great News! I'll contribute if asked in the app.

  • Nice, thank's Fredia :D

    Fantastic!  I'm super happy to see this released especially because of the video support.  Last weekend I had a bunch of people flying Solos and I had to get them all to download the Tower Beta 'cuz they wanted missions and video together.
