We’re considering using the Parrot FlyPad as the official controller for our legged robots:
It works by plugging microUSB into the Android device, which recognizes it as a USB joystick. This allows us to control the robot fine – for one minute. The FlyPad times out and stops sending joystick data after 60 seconds of being plugged in.
I assume this is because it hasn’t detected a drone and goes to sleep after a minute.
How can we make it continue to operate as a USB joystick continually?
If we can’t, then it is not operable for our robot. We’ve considered using the SkyController 2, but prefer the FlyPad. Bluetooth linking is an option, but I"m not sure if this will fix it.
