my first feedback after a quick initial test:

bug? when changing from S to V it changes video size on screen..

Rate Limit (mapped Gamesir button) seems to be applied only to speed and not to rotate and up/down speed..

didn't find a Cinematic option to map a button

continuing to test...

in C mode without VPS (indoor test) is almost uncontrollable (it went by side on a wall and with full controller on other side didn't move at all)

entering and exiting C mode is quite difficult

C is a cinematic mode for getting smooth videos in good conditions.
Good catch: I will make it switch off if VPS is lost for some reason.

The change in field of view when switching between S and V is normal. This has always been like this, and is the same with the Ryze app. Its part of the Tello firmware

Rate limit and speed with boost and limit: Observe the red position indicators of the onscreen joysticks? Whenever you activate boost / limit you see the difference in position.
To try with the drone: rotate slowly in place and press boost. You will hear the difference in prop pitch

ok didn't notice before (change in FOV between S and V).. didn't use too much the Ryze app ;-)

About enabling Cinematic mode.. can you add an option to map a button with Gamesir?

Just finished to test all new functions..

Great JOB!!! All works perfectly...
Also the corrupted video problem seems to be solved (

I like a lot Cinematic and now I understood well the Rate Limit/Boost (that has more sense only with Cinematic.. even if they have some small effects also on other modes)..
They only work in "push" button mode (and I agree that is correct.. like a "Turbo" button)
I like also the Terrain mode.. but have to test it thoroughly

About button mapping with Gamesir .. I want to ask you if you could change the default button mapping (usefull when reinstalling the app or when changing phone..) .. or alternativelly if you can export/save (and then load) button mapping configuration:

I configured the following.. if you agree with those if you could use them as default for next build:

L2 Take Photo/Video
L1 Rate Limit (Push)
R2 Toggle Photo/Video
R1 Rate Boost
Menu Toggle Sport/Video
C1 Decrease Exposure
C2 Increase Exposure
Y Return to Home (Long Press = New Home)
X Throw TakeOff + Hand Land
B TakeOff + Land
A Cinematic Mode

Dpad Up Flip Forward
Dpad Down Flip Backward
Dpad Left Flip Left
Dpad Right Flip Right

Let me know what do you think about

Regards

New version is being rolled out now.
It includes updates to the manual PDF and translations, and the feature to map the phone's Vol+ / Vol - keys to some function. So those not using a controller can map their favorite features to some button. Personally I like Rate boost & rate limit together with the cinematic mode
PIDs for terrain mode have been tuned (in higher latitude and sport mode it behaved like the famous bounce mode).
Not available yet.
Waiting for the roll out to try the new version...

Up the IroNs!

Which GameSir Controller do you have? I have a T1s and I don't see the C1/C2 and Menu buttons.

I got my T1s to work with the official Ryze app, on Android... but that was a long long time ago.

Been using Tellofpv for over a year now, haven't touched the 'official' pos app
I knew that only T1D works.. but didn't try the other model

Thank you. It looks like your T1d C1/C2 buttons would be Turbo/Clear on the T1s and your Menu would be my Start.
C1 / C" and Turbo / Clear are just labels on a button.

The only thing import is the numeric button identifier that the controller sends to Android. Its unlikely these are the same for both controller models, which is one of the reasons controller programming isn't as easy as some people think.
With Flypad and T1D the app itself controls the connection and can identify the controller based on bluetooth identifiers. So for these its feasible to pre-set a number of button actions.

For all other controllers the app is only notified that "Controller XY" has connected, and thats it. The app doesn't know if the controller has 2 buttons or 10, doesn't know which identifiers the controller will send for each button, doesn't know the layout of the controller.
There are thousands of different controller models out there so pre-setting controller buttons for any controller other than Flypad and T1d impossible. Because code 78 could be left shoulder button, or maybe the thumb button under right stick, or DPad-Up.
There is some standard convention for these button identifiers but many controller manufacturers do their own thing, so its useless.

The next release will have a new default assignment, but -sorry to say- not completely following what you proposed.

DPad for flips F, B, L, R
Shoulder buttons (L1, L2, R1, R2) for speed modes (Video / Sport / Cinematic, Rate Boost / Limit, Stop / Panic)
Menu button for Takeoff & land , hand takeoff & hand land
C1 & C2 for bitrate control + -, exposure control + -
A & B for camera control (switch video vs photo, Shutter / Record, self timer )
X & Y for flight control (RTH, set new home, terrain mode)


That is for T1D.
T1S and some other PS3-style gamepad controllers should be similar, but some will do something completely different.
Flypad will have some more changes due to different button configurations.

Anyway its just the pre-configured mapping and everyone is free to make their own. This pre-configuration will not overwrite existing mappings, it will just be applied on fresh installs, or when controller configs are cleared.
