FlightDeck FrSky Taranis App

Overview

FlightDeck by Craft and Theory is a terrific way to obtain ArduPilot flight modes, altitude, speeds, attitude and critical system alerts including failsafes and battery errors such as unballanced cells warnings and low battery alerts. As such, it’s a great companion to Tower or Mission Planner that adds extra confidence to your piloting.
