@kevinhoffy It depends on what you're trying to accomplish. If you're planning on using some of the radio components on Android (like wifi/bluetooth/ble), I suggest you use a minimum of Lollipop. There are a lot of issues with pre L. That also goes for the video decoder. Basically I suggest have a minimum of Lollipop, but the later you go, the fewer problems with hardware compatibility you'll have
@Saravana-G Change the build variant to debug and you should be fine
@fernando-s97 Sorry there hasn't been a more recent version of dronekit android. There hasn't been too much work on it recently. You can also find a helpful example in https://github.com/dronekit/dronekit-android/tree/develop/samples/StarterApp which should be up to date. The Tower app, https://github.com/DroidPlanner/Tower/, should also be helpful because it has a lot of features implemented
@abencomo Starting with dronekit version 3.0.1, you can use it standalone without 3DR Services. See https://github.com/dronekit/dronekit-android/releases/tag/dronekit-android-v3.0.1. Packets were always able to get sent over bluetooth and wifi. https://github.com/dronekit/dronekit-android/blob/develop/ClientLib/src/main/java/com/o3dr/services/android/lib/drone/connection/ConnectionParameter.java should help with the types of connections that are supported
