Does anyone have experience with running android ARC on this type of platform ?
Am planning to run ez-b in a flying wing with auto pilot/stablisation , this little pc looks very capable for my mobile platform. and only weighs about 40g (may weigh a bit more when other devices are attached)
Already have an arkbird autopilot system ready to go , plane also has 2.4g video and osd capability , so can watch my self crash from up to 10Km away.
Attaching an imu to this device may be a problem.
Have thought about using a mobile phone with incl gyro , accelerometer , compass and gps , but these phones are still very expensive , and have other hardware (autopilot ) already.
Would like to hear from anyone who has used ez-b on a uav basis.:)
There is so much wonderful tech in the drone/uav market , it would be a shame not to utilise it.

To be clear, the Android app is just that an app... ARC runs only on a PC (there is no android version)... You build the Android app from within ARC on your PC, then upload it to your cloud... Then download it to your android device... Also, the Android app is still under development so not all features (controls) are available to the user yet... For instance voice recognition is not yet implemented on Android (but pretty soon it will)... Saying all that, I don't see any reason why a built app wouldn't work on your setup...
