ARDrone Flight

ARDrone Flight


Android ARDrone Flight Application.
Control the AR.Drones and record video.

ARDrone Flight has optional Platinum Features including support for V2 Drones, Flight Animations and Autonomous Mode via in-app payments.

See ARDrone Flight discussion on ARDrone-Flyers.com forums.

V2 AR.Drones require a powerful Android CPU - Galaxy S is a minimum requirement when using local video recording with overlays.

This software uses libraries from the FFmpeg project under the LGPLv2.1.
This software also uses the unmodified JAR of Apache Commons Net licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0.

See http://www.meavydev.co.uk/ARDrone.html

Features:

Flight Animations:
* Flight animations allow a sequence of flight animations to be built up and then played back when the Drone is flying. This includes V2 only flips.
See http://www.meavydev.co.uk/ARDrone.html#FlightAnimations

Autonomous Mode:
* Uses you device GPS with Mapsforge maps to fly the Drone under autonomous control.
Uses offline mapping from Mapsforge.
See http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/

N.B. Autonomous mode is why the Location permission is used.
See http://www.meavydev.co.uk/ARDrone.html#Autonomous

Video Recording:
* Video recording to a file and/or USB recording on V2 Drones.
* Local video recording with optional overlay of drone flight information. When used without overlay this is in HD for V2 drones.

UI Configuration:
* Fully configurable UI.
* Control via tilt, on-screen joysticks or USB gamepads.
* Individual icon, text and joystick scaling.
* Separate joystick deadzones and sensitivities.
* Colour slider to change on-screen UI colour of joystick controls.
* Transparency slider to adjust visibility of UI.

Flight Control:
* Fly by tilt, on-screen joysticks or USB gamepads.
* Use normal, absolute or combined yaw flight modes.

Profiles:
* Create multiple profiles for uses like indoor and outdoor settings; day or dusk UI; HUD on/off etc.
* Profiles can be switched quickly from a UI icon.

GamePad Mapping:
* Gamepad mapping allows the mapping of USB gamepad buttons and joysticks.
See http://www.meavydev.co.uk/ARDrone.html#GamePadMap

Update Drone firmware:
* Both the official Parrot download site and latest unofficial firmware downloads.

Not free To do anything it says it requires a donation...so I couldn't even test it. Not willing to donate if I can't even test if the app works at all.

it SUCKS I'm just sorry I can NOT give this POS a -5. Do not load this it is the worst software that I have ever seen. Have to buy the full version before you can even fly. I would not buy a car without a test drive, software is the same for me. if you say it's free let it be free (if only for a few days) then ask us to buy. I also think this guy had friends give it a good review.
