    Does anybody know of a piece of Ground Station/Way Point software with Point of Interest support that works with the Tali H500? I've done a lot of searching, and have found a whole bunch that goes with the DJI Phant 3 and 4, but nothing that looks to be compatible with Walkera's products. Makes me wonder if I shouldn't put mine on the block and change sides or go to Yuneec.

    I guess I don't understand your question: this version was kluged together by the previous owner, but it does have a 3DR telemetry transciever (platform-mounted), with a USB ground transmitter for iPad. Does that help? BTW, I really appreciate somebody with knowledge assisting on this thread. I frankly think that Tali H500 seems to be a superior platform, as opposed to the DJI Ph 3 Pro, but I'm a real newbie, so my opinion is probably not worth the paper it's printed on.

    That hack does not make sense to me. I would need to understand what was done a lot better.

    You can buy the Tali with the BT ground station. It has a high power Blue Tooth transmitter than connects to your Android tablet.

    You then have full Ground station and mission planning.

    Cheers Brian

    Yes you can do that but it cant fly it or communicate to the drone unless you have a very long USB cable. :D

    I wish people would stop making pointless misleading videos. How about his attempt to fly with this. That I would be interested in.

    The Walkera Ground station is a amplified Bluetooth transmitter that you attach your Android to locally and operate as a ground station.

    It can be flown directly from the android or in conjunction with the F12E.

    Mine actually works quite well. I solved the "USB cable issue" with a $5 otg cable and a $20 3DR 977mhz telemetry radio set...I only get a few 100m's. Ill have to try the usb cable.....
    Photo 1. Downloading Module Data
    Photo 2. Missing The gps data because i have it set to use a cached copy.
    Photo 3. Menu for flight planning
    Photo 4. Showing "wireless USB cables". (Go Nikola Tesla)
    Photo 5. Showing change in pitch and attitude in real time. (I typically have the telemetry module attached to the devo)

    It is raining here, or I would post a video of me flying it..I will post one after it gets dry.

    I wouldn't want to be misleading or anything...
