looking into my calender it is 2019 and I am astonished to see that it seems not possible to control a drone with a smartphone either via Wifi or Bluetooth, when relying on Ardupilot or PX4.
This seems very basic, some little toy drones for 30 USD can do.
RC radios / telemetry are all bulky and add complexity.
I do not criticise Emlid or Navio, rather the hole OS ecosystem that has not those basics covered.
So is there a way to remote my Navio2/RPi drone without using a radio control alltogehter, e.g. using the arrow keys on the keyboard or is there some app
that allows this on the smartphone ?
Qgroundcontrol has a virtual keyboard, but you can not use it on Ardupilot.
And you can not use it unless you have a radio to set up the radio controlls first,
otherwise setup/ config screen of the ground stations wont let u any further!
There must be a way…
