The thread on my blog post is getting a little unmanageable. How about we discuss test results here instead...
I'll also post release notes as new builds are out. The device must support 'USB host mode' (most devices running android 3.1 or later are fine). You'll need a 'OTG' adapter such as this
Please post feedback here or on the github issues site - the google play comments are not really useful yet.
Hi ya'll. Please move further discussion of this app to a newly created group:
Feel free to make new approprately titled discussion threads.
Future app releases will be announced only there.

Earl's comments on PIPO S2 for firmware upgrade_19th Feb 2013;
Tried successful upgrade the following firmwares for the PIPO S2 but still 3DR radio not working and hence Andropilot and DroidPlanner also not working. However same 3DR radio is working on Andropilot and Droidplanner on my other two tabs IS701C and IS709C.
Short question. Is there a howto connect my Hardware? I have an android phone and a 3dr transmitter for telemetie data with an USB connector. Do I just need an adapter?
Yes that's all a serial one. Make sure your Android is upto date on your device for best results.
You mean like this: http://www.amazon.de/InLine-Micro-USB-Adapter-Micro-A-Stecker/dp/B0...
That would be perfect.
Are all the tablets and phones that this has been tested with been able to power up the 3DR radio?
yes, most decent devices handle it just fine.
Galaxy Note 10.1 occasonaly complains about it being a high-power device, but a reconnection fixes that (only n-rush current)
Galaxy Note 2 works fine every time, and regarding Note2's DC-DC converter: it can even power a USB3.0 1TB WB 2.5" drive (not SSD, harddrive !)
Thanks, I'm waiting on a OTG cable to see if it works with an old HTC Inspire (Desire HD) that I have laying around. I had to root it to put 4.1 on it (it only officially went to 2.3) and I was just thinking it may not power up the 3DR radio.
Finally caved and bought a Nexus 7 to use with this, works great!
Feature request: a good, very visible indication of the forward direction of the quad on the map (like the red line in mission planner). My use for a tablet in the field vs. a laptop is to be able to make sure my compass headings are correct before using an auto mode, and with mission planner on a laptop I can quickly tell by looking at the direction of it in the air and the red line on the screen.
Has anyone tried to run AndroPilot on a mini-pc like this one? http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-The-First-Quad-Core-Mini-PC-Anro...
