Hi everyone! I’m about to buy a yuneec after I read this thread! But I’m an iPhone user, so I will have to buy an android phone. May anyone tell me what are there requirements for an android phone to work with this mod? It would be awesome if I can find a cheap one, cause I only buy it to fly with this drone. Thanks in advance!

See this thread How To: Tell if my phone, tablet, or pad is compatible with the Breeze?. Basically you want 5.8 GHz WiFi capability (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 4.1 or better to use the Breeze Controller. So use gsmarena.com to check phone specs on the lower priced phones you find to ensure they meet the WiFi and Bluetooth specs.

Thank you! Also, will any wifi repeater work on this drone, or only Comfast and Zyxel? And, does anyone think about using Flat panel directional antenna like this one at Amazon to connect with these wifi repeater?
I think it could significantly increase the range 😛, but, as far as I know, the range limit now is only 600m. Is it the maximum no matter how we try or we can break it as far as we have a good settings?

For distances beyond 100 meters I personally would not consider the Comfast repeaters we have been using. They helped with the OEM Breeze Cam app where the distance geofence was 100m, but I don’t find it very reliable beyond that. I do like the ZyXEL 6606 as it is fairly compact and runs on 5V USB power without using a DC/DC converter. The ZyXEL is very hard to find now.

There have been a couple other repeaters of more recent design that have been used, but they need a DC/DC adapter to power them from a 5V USB power brick. Look near the end of this thread Breeze Range Extender for what has been tried and found success. Try looking for a repeater that functions like the ZyXEL 6606 and allows the 5.8GHz WiFi between itself and the Breeze, while allowing either 5.8GHz or 2.4GHz to the phone. It opens more possibilities for phones/tablets to work with the Breeze.

Thank you! You are very helpful! Also, is 600m the limit now or we can break it as long as we have a good setup?

I haven’t used it in awhile as I usually use an iPhone with the Breeze. The Amazon Fire 7 tablet is too laggy on the camera link to fly comfortably.
You can try checking with @wesleybp and @dsduarte02 to see where they are at with the modded app.

Thank you! Hopefully they will stop by this thread and tell us

Will there be in the future a 1.4.7.4 version without the controller @[email protected] crash problem?
The blue Breezecam clone version 1.4.7.2 works well; is it possible to create an upgraded version of the red Breezecam clone 1.4.7.3?
It looks to me that the constantly developing last gen_signed.apk and the blue clone (1.4.7.2) are at first sight (graphic) the same, or am I wrong?

Thanks in advance!
Muito obrigado!
I managed to solve the controller @[email protected] crash problem myself.
I created a 1.4.7.4 version with a GREEN Breezecam icon.
You will find it here:

Breeze_cam_1.4.7.4.apk

That is great! Would you mind elucidating on what you found to be the problem and what you did to correct it. This has been an open discussion so far in this thread.

Using APK Easy Tool and APK Editor Studio, I compared the decompiled apk's of the blue clone (1.4.7.2), red clone (1.4.7.3) and the latest gen_signed clone.
I searched for "controller" in the decompiled apk's and found out that in the red clone several smali files related to mediacontroller were missing. I merged the missing files in 1.4.7.3 and recompiled the app. I used zip allign to optimize the packaging; I changed the colour of the Breezecam icon to green and branded the clone app Breezecam 1.4.7.4

Thank you @Mpeg4fan! That was a bit more than I expected, but good to hear for all the Android Breeze users.
