i.e. Android device+BT <==air==> BT_module<-->uart<-->long range modem (like 3DR roborics) <==air==> 3DR modem<-->uart<-->copter


right now it is the only solution.
but I finally got a tablet with usb host so as soon as I receive a USB OTG cable I will try to implement direct connection via usb.

Yes I ordered it. I have Samsung galaxy tab 2 and it has a stupid 30 pin connector instead of USB micro.

30 pin connector on Tab2 is a must. Because Micro USB can't provide enough power for charging battery. One guy from Samsung in my country told me.

Hi,

I'm also interrested in!!!
I have an Advent Vega with custom 4.0.4 ROM, and USB-A with host mode possibilities (I can play videos directly from USB pendrive, to HDMI output... :D ).
So this definitelly could be used with 3DR!

Maybe a tablet layout also would be great for 10' tablets... ;)

Hi,

it looks like FTDI has support for USB ftdi devices!!!
http://www.ftdichip.com/Android.htm

Bart, what do you think about using FTDI UART/TTL for general MWI connection? (could be used for either 3DR modules, direct cable connection, XBEE or any other UART/TTL compatible methods...)
And I think many of us already have an USB FTDI mobule around.

This FTDI solution can be used for any android devices with USB HOST mode support.

Yes, yesterday I started to research about this subject.
When I receive my cable I'll try to implement it.

And for now there will be no tablet layout.
It is easy to say but hard to do.
Maybe in the future I will make one layout with everything on the screen.

I have several DIY multirotor even DJi and MK, But from all, I like MWI (the most active forum and stable), Autoquad (the most accurate platform) and APM2.5 (arduino base and many features), last two using mavlink, but no from them has app as good as yours.

So, I think it will be more stronger if this app can have mavlink, so all three multirotor can use this app.

Thanks,

John

I tried mavlink once. One guy wanted to pay me for application which supports mavlink. But this protocol is so complex and I don't understand it well.

Hi Ezio,

I understand the effort is not easy, i hope more android coder willing to support develop this app. do you have plan to make this app support mavlink? and maybe you make two version of this app, paid version with mavlink (compatible with MWI, autoquad and APM) and opensource version just for MWI.

Thanks,

John

Hi, cm/s is the unit for vario.

I think a ymall indicator would be even more useful like print out the number.
Ie. a circle when vario is 0 (between +-5 cm/s for deadband), and draw an arrow over or under the circle if rising/descending.
Could be even put on map view...

I'm cooking something new. New Dashboard.
But I have another project going so you will have to wait for it.
Here is a sneak peek.

USB->rs232 first

but if you can prepare file like this https://github.com/eziosoft/MultiWii_EZ ... mw/BT.java for wifi so I can just replace/add it to the project.

I tried the new dashboard 2 this afternoon. The display showed the artificial horizon 'instrument' face on the left and the usual text on the right. The other three instrument displays were absent.

However, please check the pitch data handling. Dashboard 1 showed -17* and Dashboard 2 showed -1*. My quad was sitting level at the time. Saddly, Dash 1 was what the FC thought was correct: bad crash.

EDIT: My appologies, I got this wrong. See my next post.

Ezio, my apologies for my bad information in my last post. I have re-looked, today, at both dashboard screens and both are consistent and appear correct.

But, I think the reason I was reading the display wrong is because that data labels are closer to the wrong value than they are to the correct value. For example, the Pitch label is closer to the roll value than it is to the pitch value and this leads me to automatically associate the Pitch label to the roll value even when I know the correct association. Any time I look briefly at the screen, I'm associating the label to the wrong value. Next time you are editing the Dashboard 2 code, consider increasing the spacing so the data label is closer to its data than the other label is.

That said, I really like the application and appreciate all of your hard work.

Nick

I take any update, but this might be the problem I have.
At this time I have a small issue with the graph-en display.
The only graph I can still see is the z-axis from the ACC.

Also PIDs send by eMail is not working for me,
have a Mail send but no PIDs inside,
but thats no real problem for me.

... and No, I have not forgotten to switch them on ;-).

I have just posted new version. should be available from google play in few hours.
Main change is USB Serial port support.
*Only FTDI chips are supported.
*No root required.
*Android version greater or equal to 3.1 (it will not work on 2.2, 2.3 etc (froyo))
*You have to have USB host and USB OTG cable.
Settings are in config.
I tested it on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and it works very good. and it is much faster then Bluetooth.
Application should automatically start when you plug your FTDI device in.

For those who can't (or don't have google play) wait here is the link: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/80566205/MultiWiiEZGUI.apk

hello,
i've just installed the 3.30 version. When i launch the app, it stucks. Android says " unfortunately, MultiWii EZ-Gui has stopped. "
Trying several downloads to see if the app was broken or not, but i have the same message.

My phone : Xperia X8 under CyanogenMod Mini CM10 4.1.0 Shakira. Version android : 4.1.2.

The previous EZ-Gui version worked fine.

Could you please poste a 3.2 apk?

Merci d'avance.

Hi ezio,

Just tested your app with USB support.
I hooked a 3DR radio up to my Galaxy tab2 via the OTG cable and connection to the quad was just fine.
However when scrolling between the tabs I noticed the app stops responding and reports "MultiWii EZ-Gui has stopped".
Apart from that it is very nice to have the serial connection up and running :)
Very nice job indeed
