Understanding FlytNow

FlytNow connects with your drone over the cloud via the FlytBase platform. Depending on the drone being used, you can establish a connection in the following two ways:

  1. FlytOS Mobile App

  2. FlytOS SBC Integration Module (Software)

1. FlytOS Mobile App

The FlytOS mobile app for Android is a wrapper written on top of DJI SDK and allows the connected Android device to gain navigational control over the drone and fetch the drone’s telemetry.

Ideal for all DJI drones that support Mobile SDK. You can find the entire list here. This allows you to quickly get started and explore FlytNow. Available for a 28-day free trial.

2. FlytOS SBC Integration Module (Software)

FlytNow SBC Integration Module establishes a connection with a Single Board Computer(SBC) onboard the drone. This connection will enable the user to command the drone and fetch the drone’s vital data from the SBC. The SBC is interfaced with the drone’s flight controller to communicate the instructions and capture the drone’s telemetry data.
