Hi everybody,
I was wondering, if it's possible to use the DronePlanner app to make a flight plan.
Obviously using the GPS module connected to the drone.

Thanks.

Drone Planner uses a different interface, I think. Whatever ArduPilot is, we don't have it.

I was actually asking pippofilth ;)

Anyway, DroidPlanner uses mavlink, which AR.Drone does have. It does work with ARD, you can see the HUD, upload/download flight plan etc. I didn't try to fly it though, only tested on the ground.

can you expand on this?
I tried this the other day, I've used droidplanner and droidplanner 2 with my ArduPilot. Which version did you use, and what were your connection settings, I tried using UDP and port 5556 or 5554 but i just kept getting "connection lost"

Thanks!

DroidPlanner v1, UDP default settings, ARD firmware 2.4.7+ (we are not talking about ArduPilot here)

Awesome! Thank you. I was clearly trying too hard.

thanks for checking but ya I'm trying to use it with my ARD. Figured it'd be a cool option since I was familiar using the software with my ardupilot plane.

Hi Everybody!

So, I've not understood very good... is it possible to make fly AR Drone with Droidplanner? In case positive, which set up I need to perform to do this?

Thanks,

Fabio

According to the developer's website
Droidplanner is a Ground Control Station (GCS) Android app for UAVs running Ardupilot software.
Sounds like NO to me.
