In last two months we are working to new special console for control our drone , gimbal , rc models ... we develop a special application on android and some hardware interface for interconnect different kind of tx radio module. Our idea is to virtualize the hardware interface and have a flexible enviroment for control different kind of application.
This is only a preview of our work in the picture above is possible to see the direct interface with Jeti radio tx module.
In this kind of configuration the VR Droid PAD connect directly by a custom hardware the Jeti Tx module.
So is possible to use same reciver on your drone without change it.
Is designed to be used on Rover or Drones or professional use. It 'sa project dynamic and evolving based on feedback from users of our community: www.virtualrobotix.com
The main features are:
- Ability to manage up to 8 channels.
- 4 Channel standard for management ROLL, PITCH, YAW and Throttle.
- Auto Repositioning of 2 main stick when you put the finger on the screen.
- 5 additional channels of digital or analog.
- Management of the minimum and maximum for each channel.
- Management Trim
- Management subtrim.
- Reverse channel management.
- Configuration management esponeziali on standard channels.
- Management of up to two simultaneous feedback with vibration and sound feedback to throttle on the second audio output.
- Management mode 1,2,3,4 as standard RC trasmitter.
PPMSUM standard output compatible with the most 'popular radio modules tx.
Manages two modes: configuration and live to allow the maximum fluidity of the commands and the maximum configurability by users.
The current version is a preview suitable only for beta testing use it carefully.
