Android Ground Station running Tower with Video + Telemetry downlink

Yes, the project is so old and many plugins are now obsolete, so I’m kind of stuck with it. But I am still trying

Yeah , its been more than 3 years since the latest relase. I have some knowledge in Android Studio .
It would be quite a challenge to add support for the newer libraries.
I will also give it a try :grin: .
I like the Ardupilot project so i would be more than happy to add my contribution to the project .


Well, the gradle plugin is now 3.5.1 it will not support the compat libraries in Tower so many changes

Looking good. I hope it’s ok, I slightly modified the post so that a picture appears at the top which looks better when viewed on

Shouldn’t they do it because they built it on an open source project?

Hey @rmackay9

Looks better now :+1::+1::grin:


Hello everyone,

I managed to mount the Ground Station on my Taranis .
Attached the post are some pictures of my setup , also some pictures of my build.
Hope you like it.




Hello folks ,

I know its been a long time since the last post .
I have been a bit busy with life :stuck_out_tongue:
After testing the module that i made for taranis .
I came to the conclusion that it works, but its extremely heavy when mounted as i have shown in the previous pictures.
I tried to make it lighter and more compact, so i changed the design .
I made it so it could clip in the module bay of the taranis X9D .
Just finished putting everything to place , it fits very good .

As i promised, i will put everything into a github repo so everyone who is interested can built, it has a low cost .

Attached the post are some pictures .



Dear Enerik,

very very great job!! Congratulation!

I’ve 2 questions

1 - wich type of USB splitter did you use?
2 - why Skydroid didn’t pull Skydroid Tower on GitHub? Tower is an Open Source code!


I guess they want to make money on other people work?

Hello Emanuele,

The USB splitter is just a generic one bought from aliexpress for 2$, nothing special .

Regarding tower i think that they should release the code to be public since it is an open source. I dont have any idea why they haven’t done that.


Thank you Enerik for the info on the splitter!
You are right about Skydroid Tower, but I don’t see any line of code on Github!
