I have a Wemos D1 and I want to controll a variable over wifi from a android device.
How can I do this?

What kind of variable? How often? Do you care about latency? Do you want to write your own app? Do you want to use a readily available app? Do you want a web interface in the browser?
What do you need it for? What is your project about?

Take a look at this Beginner's Guide to the ESP8266.

*sorry for my bad english*
I'm willing to make a arduino quadcopter and controll it with my android device via wifi. A responce time of 1sec is good enough, I'm not a skilled programmer so if I make my own app I need some kind of "appmaker". If I can do it through browers its okay.

Then it's probably easiest to use HTTP and a web form:

But you'll need to read the chapters before that first if you're new to all this.
