Remote Controller

Overview

The ST10C remote controller (RC) allows for manual flight of the vehicle. The iOS device can connect to the remote controller to communicate with the vehicle. Once connected, it can receive the live video stream from the camera and also control the gimbal.

The mobile device can be connected to the controller via a USB connector. The remote controller has buttons and sticks that control the vehicle via the 2.4GHz Zigbee link.

The MFiAdapter framework provides APIs for communication between the vehicle and RC, and also between the RC and mobile device. The RC linked to the vehicle will be able to receive feedback from the vehicle and also pass the information to the connected mobile device. Please refer to the MFiAdapter section to get more information about the framework.
