Well, first I’m french so sorry for those words I won’t googletraduct and you’ll read bad globish.
I first tried to pilot my drone with a Lenovo PB1-770M Android 5.1.1, for christmas, but my videofeedback used to freeze. Tried all wifi frequency, freeze, freeze, freeze.Changing from photo to video in order to set a frame (“cadrer”) without moving my drone. Read that my android firmware could be the issue.
I decided to buy one of those cheap chinise tablet with Android 8.1 (for another reason) and tried with the new parrot firmwares. No more freeze but bad bad bad image with “big blocks”, impossible to pilot, even set correctly a frame for aerial photography. On both Lenovo A5.1 and Chinise A8.1.
I discovered that mplayer (and vlc) were able to get the drone’s video stream, I tried on different OS, same “raining blocks” in my video feedback unreadable, uncontrolable.
I can only pilot in eyes-sight.
I tried with a friend’s Iphone 7, everything’s perfect of course.
And when Freeflight on Android is in map mode, with a tiny video feedback, the mini video is perfect, small but fluid, no freeze, no blocks.
So I decided to make my own custom controller when the SDK went out, discovering Olympe, I thought it would be possible to control my drone with a Raspberry Pi Zero W. But that board uses an ARM6 microcontroler and the ulog library needs some thumb instructions “not implemented”. And the Olympe build crashes… Is there another way than using ulog?
