I have a device (drone-controller) where i can connect a smartphone to and send command to from a mobile app back to the device(drone-controller). I want to reverse engineer the protocol so i can try to build my own app to send command from to the device. How should i go about this? Which hardware/software do i need to accomplish this? Thanks for your reply.

You may want to refer to the Wireshark USB capture setup wiki page for possible ideas.

But if that doesn't help you, you might need to invest in a USB hardware capture device, such as the ComProbe USB 2.0 Protocol Analyzer from Frontline Test Equipment (a.k.a., Teledyne LeCroy), or the Beagle USB 12 Protocol Analyzer from TotalPhase.

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with either Frontline Test Equipment or Total Phase in any way, nor have I personally used either of the products mentioned, and so I can't comment on these products' capabilities. Before purchasing any product, you should conduct your own research to be sure the product will meet your needs.
