Smarter Cheaper Faster

If you talk very nicely to Andrew Dunlop of the Millswood engineering failsafe device he might send you a copy of his version of the GCS.

Very much in Beta testing at this time, this GCS will allow you easy access to camera control via maxstreams the fail-safe and a joystick.

I look forward to trying this myself, good work Andrew.

I managed to get mine running the new LOG file replay mode, now time to try and run it properly!

Hi beta testers,

Some problems with the serial comms have been identified and after a bit of angst have now been fixed (thanks Mike, couldn't have done it without you!). I've distributed a new version (1.20). It's got a few other enhancements (mainly improved KML generation, but it's also more crash-proof).

Anybody else out there trying it??

Coming soon, version 1.21 interfaces with Google Earth 5.1 to provide realtime UAV tracking.

It's also got improved KML generation, some bug fixes, user selectable text sizes, and better commenting.

All the nastiest bugs have now been weeded out, so the GCS is now officially liberated here:

An up-to-date copy - along with the user guide - will be maintained at

Thank you Gary, Mike and Irv, collectively you lot found all of the nastiest bugs and suggested the nicest features. Couldn't have done it without your help. Thank you.
