Hello,
with the latest upgrade I'm no more able to draw a polygon with DroidPlanner1 on a S7Edge. It shows a warnig "attempt to invoke virtual method ...
Thanks,

Arming issue: Hi!  I'm building a mode 2 quadcopter with an APM 2.6 set from 3DR and am running DroidPlanner on a 2013 model Nexus 7. 

Using a USB cable to connect the APM to the Nexus I'm able to get real-time telemetry but am completely unable to arm the quad -- this both with and without the LIPO attached.  Only a few times was I able to get 'chirp' back from the APM during an 'arm' request but it never followed through with arming.

Interestingly, if I connect to my PC and use Mission Planner I am able to successfully arm the vehicle (I can also arm via the RC transmitter). 

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi Arthur

Just sent two crash reports for droidplanner. Both under the same circumstances.

Once connected to copter 3.1, I tried to get waypoints from it and droidplanner crashed after saying "waypoints received"

Merry Christmas btw

Well, what can I say about this release: That I haven't done any of the work?

I must especially thanks +azrin aris and bob01 for their incredible contributions, in fact I just merged their pull requests and resolved the merge conflicts. And that has become this step in the life of the app.

And just so anyone don't think I'm losing interesting on the project: I have slowed my development on the main branch because I'm designing a cool v2.0.0 of DroidPlanner.

New version (1.0.1):
* Moving the arm/disarm button to the overflow menu for safety reasons
* Fixing problems with the Do_Jump and Set_Home waypoint dialogs
* Reduce the chance of unintentionally deleting waypoints while scrolling

Just fixing some stuff, including some safety precaution on the arm button. This has gone directly to the stable version because it's very important.

New version (0.16.0):
* Bluetooth Support
* Fixing layout problems with the Survey window

Since many users have requested Bluetooth support I loaned a Android Device with Bluetooth, and implemented the support (my tablet doesn't have it, that's why it took so long). 

I tested it with a RN-42 Bluetooth module bridged with a 3DR telemetry board with success. To use the feature just pair your device using android settings, and select Bluetooth in the DroidPlanner settings menu.

I have NOT tested the feature extensively, so I'm eager to receive feedback from you guys.

New version of DroidPlanner (0.15.0):
* New Waypoint Editor
* New Survey Interface
* Support for Physical Joysticks
* Chinese Translation
* Code Re-factoring
* Minor fixes (please consult GIT history)

The main things are:
 The new waypoint editor which is much easier to use, and support's almost every kind of waypoint. To use it just click on a waypoint on the map or list to open a dialog where you can change the waypoint settings. We have gone to the trouble of doing a customized dialog for almost every waypoint kind, making it really easy to setup the parameters.

 The new Survey dialog. Now it interactive, you can select your survey parameters and it will dynamically update the grid. Also a nice new feature is the option of showing the camera footprints on the ground.

I would like to thanks +azrin aris for his huge help with the development of the new Waypoint editor. Also to everyone that has share constructive thoughts on GitHub.

Please give feedback on the comments, or directly on the Github issues at the following links:

New version (0.14.1):
* Drag-and-Drop waypoint editing
* Slide to remove waypoint
* Click to edit waypoint
* Adding a lot more info to the Survey Dialog

I implemented some user ideas for the waypoint editor, I hope you guys like it.  So just to remember, slide, drag, click and you are good to go flying :)

Also there has been a great improvement on the Survey Screen, and now it has some cameras that are loaded by default (thanks +Brandon Basso ). Give it a try.
