Topic: New iPhone, iPod, iPad App "Drone Ace"
Pleased to announce... after months of tweaking...
Really wanted to provide something that I have seen that the RC Community has wanted with regular RC Style controls.
-Video Recording with optional Audio From iOS Device with optional data overlay.
-2 HUD Modes... Aviator and Minimal
-Standard Accelerometer Swapped
-RC Mode 1
-RC Mode 2
-RC Mode 3
-RC Mode 4
(all above modes have optional elevation inversion and optional coordinated turns (combined yaw/roll))
Autonomous target tracking (either yaw and pitch, or just yaw).
One really cool feature...
-If you have more than one iPod, iPhone, or iPad...
You can connect multiple secondary devices as external displays where you can record video, take pictures or just watch. Just connect the primary to the drone first... the rest will automatically give a "Just Display" mode.
-Also compatible with Drone Master (Control with Drone Master, record/watch with Drone Ace)
Some quick tips while I finish the manual...
-Tap the compass to flat trim if you want to.
-Configure LED/Action Modes while the drone is on the ground (wrenches visible on HUD Overlay)...once the drone takes off... they become regular buttons to push the action or LED mode you chose.
-Make sure you have good lighting for stalk mode.
-When using coordinated turns (combined roll/yaw) adjust your indoor/outdoor maximums for yaw and roll until you find a nice combination that you are comfortable with. The faster you are moving forward the more severe the turn will be. The turn reverses in reverse. (Make sense?)
Just so you know...
Stick modes (RC Mode 1, 2, 3, 4) don't care about the "iPhone Tilt Max" settings so you have full range of control and no surprises.
The "Control Sticks" are not like the Free Flight app. They have been tweaked to allow finer control and less inadvertent maneuvers.
