Jason's Homebrew APM Transmitter

I was visiting with APM Developer Jason Short, and he showed me a project he had been working on... His own radio, integrated for use with DroidPlanner running on a Nexus 7.

I hope Jason will say some more about it later (note to Jason: no more prestigious venue than EastBay RC!); I was really impressed.  Custom electronics and code, a nice 3D printed case which felt nice in my hands, a really nice job.

He didn't know it, but it's the same glorious yellow color as the old Kraft radios!


  1. This radio is based on an Arduino Pro mini. Next version will be APM based and have a lot more mavlink functionality built in.

  2. Any updates on this? I'm very interested in building my own-
