The videos are great. I have a Window 32 PC, a Window 64 Pc, a laptop running ubuntu and a new imac disktop. Can I get one of them to talk AQ mission?

Larry, Max is looking into it but I don't know if it will be possible. Qground control's website states that Mac os and Linux does voice. If you use an Android device the voice seems to work better right now.

In one of your videos I could here the verbal commands in a voice different then that of the Android apt just wondering that computer was able to do voice.

I find the Android apt is quite good and I like to build on the PC and load and save to the Android Razr Max phone. I fly with the phone in my shirt pocket and it really gives you confidence the AQ is following it's mission.
You can use the mission on the phone to demonstrat the AQ and move a mission to a new location. I haven't
found a way to do that on the GCS.

I just saw you are using an RCT bluetooth to connect to the AQ board. I have the same bluetooth device and it won't connect for me. I think the baud rate is different. Did you find a way to change the settings for the RCT bluetooth to serial board?

Larry, The voice was when I was testing the Mac version of the Qground Control Beta that Max released. The Windows version does not currently support voice. I didn't change anything on my bluetooth module just reversed the TX/RX between it and 3dr. I set the 3dr on 115,200 and updated them both to 1.6. When I first tried it, It didn't connect I just had my AQ powered radio off then I powered my radio and about 5-10sec later it said connected to AutoQuad and has connected instantly ever since. I guess I shouldn't mess with it to much LOL

I have a laptop running Ubuntu and works great using it online. For some reason I can't get the linux QGC to work on it. I'll wait and watch for a beta version. The new windows QGC is working well for me. I could install the apple version on my wife's new imac but I know better.
I'll have to update the firmware for the 3D radios and give the RCT BT board another try.
Thanks
