S500 UAV

Works nicely. Love that I get rssi readings unlike tower app which rssi never works.
Great job on this (FREE) app! Most who are complaining don’t have a clue what they are doing. It’s not that difficult..... read, read, read! I never had anyone hold my hand and show me how this stuff all works! I learned all on my own. Don’t expect someone to walk you through holding your hand like a little child showing you how all this works because it will not happen! Research! You will figure it out if you actually put the time in to learn. This is a free app and it takes a whole lot of the developers time to make such an app. You are lucky the Devs are offering it for free because if I was the developer I’d charge for my time. Just my 3 cents.

Great work on the development of this useful app

Where is the documentation? The only thing I can find is a smug comment on the forums "you have to use wifi".

Can this be linked through Qgroundcontrol running on a laptop connected to 3dr radios?
