    If you're trying to run it with APM Copter or APM Plane, the feature is not yet generally available.

    I ran the "Droidplanner" app on an Android tablet, Paired the Bluetooth first then it worked.

    I use Droid planner with mine, and I'm getting a ton of latency and very poor performance. I'm using betaflight and Matek f405 flight controller. Can't seem to figure that out. Any thoughts on what the issue is?

    I swear the Bluetooth module is hit or miss in the crossfire... I have 1 that intermittently worked at first, and now not at all, and at the end my laptop and tablet don't even show it anymore, they both list a unrecognized device now... My friends works great, my other friend has issues.. At the moment I'm waiting on Perna to chime in.. I bind my one friends crossfire tx to my diversity receiver and it works great with the tower app so I know my receiver and settings are all correct and that it's a crossfire tx malfunction somehow on its Bluetooth, other than that the txt works great though...

    I replied to your other post. I put in a trouble ticket to TBS but got the typical Chinese response. Said I was using Mission Planner on Windows 10 and she told me to go into Droidplanner 2 and forget the bluetooth device. Not using Android and there is no BT device to forget. I've only seen it show up a few times as a device and the connection only lasts a minute or so. So far, it doesn't look like TBS is going to help.
