      Any idea why version will connect to my dropcontroller but the newest 2019.6.1.1 will not regardless of which DC version or BT Serial port I choose?


      I should have mentioned that I will frequently get ‘no reply received from the drop controller – do you want to continue’? I hit yes and it carries on working for a few then it fails again.

      Hi Mark,

      It sounds like you are using version 2 with an old Arduino sketch.

      When I merged the apps I updated how the communication and acknowledgments worked. At the same time I updated the sketches.

      Please update the Arduino sketch to dropControllerV2 Arduino Sketch 2019_V2_001

      Hi Martin,I built version 2 DropController 1 year 9 months ago, It’s been brilliant and running faultlessly since then.
      I had to reset my phone a few days ago, put The new dropcontroller app. back on, paired it, but I can’t get it to connect via bluetooth. When I switch on, my HC06 is flashing as is my LED. When I try to connect, my HC06 light steadies but my LED keeps flashing and it will not connect. (I switched the Version button to 2) any ideas?

      did you update the sketch on the Arduino?

      The new app uses a slightly different connection protocol so the sketch has to be updated.
