As time marches on, I am thinking iphone/ipad app with bluetooth USB dongle for the ESC may be the best for field setup. Viewing logging would need an ipad or laptop for the larger screen.

Apple has not released any API for external comm unless you have an apple chip in the external appliance so unless you Jailbreak your phone and Castle support this by writing an app for it, it wont happen.
(Same thing why there is no iPhone app for the VBar etc)

Another vote for Mac. The only time I start up my PC dinosaur is for certain programs related to RC.

Castle is working on Mac compatibility... also mobile devices...


Many of the folks at Castle use Mac... I currently use virtual box with W7 and it works very well.

I have virtual box setup but it isn't recognizing the usb link. Trying with Vista.

Clintstone did you do anything special for it to work?

I think we are on the cusp of a huge move to Tablets & Smart phones, so a longer term solution may be called for.

Well, the easy solution is to release the protocol spec and have the community build it. They dont have to open source the firmware to do that.

The money is not in writing programs to update speed controllers. The money is in selling speed controllers.

Put the source code for the windows programmer up on Git Hub and let the community fork it into Mac, iOS, Linux, Android and whatever other versions the community wants.

You have to go into the devices and point VM to the Castle link... It is like a condition that you must set the same as if you want to make a thumb drive available... to the VM...

Well I got it working with virtualbox, windows vista (best cd I had around) on my Mac. Works great.

I'm trying to remember what I did because I was doing a lot of things. One you have to make sure that the usb device is loading in the VM and not the Mac. I also updated vista to all the latest service packs etc.
