Event38 Bluetooth Telemetry Bridge Review

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Event38 set out t0 eliminate the need for laptops on the flying field. Sure you can use bluetooth to control and monitor your drone, but that only gets you how far, 30 meters, maybe 40? If you want to use a 430MHz or 900MHz telemetry transmitter, you need an android tablet/phone capable of USB host mode, AND it’s another thing connected to your mobile device.

Event38’s Bluetooth bridge eliminates all this by offering you a simple self-contained, self-powered device you can just bring to the flying field, clip onto your belt and forget about, using your phone or tablet to control even the most complex and demanding Drone missions. But is the $140 price tag justified? Find out in our in-depth review after the break!

For a pledge of just USD $139.- you can reserve your very own Bluetooth to 433/900 MHz telemetry bridge. That allows you to just use your android tablet or iPad with any of the MultiWii or Mavlink/APM compatible mission planner apps out there, without being limited to the range of Bluetooth. Basically it’s just a bluetooth module, a 433 or 900 MHz telemetry transmitter, and a LiPo battery.

If this sounds like something you could build yourself, it’s because that’s exactly what has already happened. Still, the price is not terribly unreasonable, and it’s a useful device for anyone flying APM, MegaPirate, MultiWii or similar.

Update: The project just reached it’s funding goals of USD $2.800,-

The Devention Devo 6 Transmitter supports Telemetry out of the box. All you need to do is apply the latest upgrade by Walkera and bind to a compatible receiver with telemetry support, like the one built into the Mini-CP.

Bonus: The Mini-CP has the exact same flight setup as the Genius-CP, so you can just copy your existing model and pretty much fly right away.
