3D Robotics Tower (Continued)

Here are some of the features of Tower (DroidPlanner 3): - You can fly your 3DR drone with just a phone or tablet. - Create flights by drawing the paths on your tablet or dropping waypoints. - Fly in smooth curves with spline waypoints. - Circle waypoints allow you to orbit an object and keep the camera pointed at it. - “Survey” will automatically generate the flight pattern you need to fully cover a region of the map. - The one-button Dronie lets you quickly capture a one-of-a-kind selfie that reveals the scenery around you as the copter flies up and back.
