Worst crash yet

Just put on my bearings and a 1350 lipo. Took out outside and flew around just fine. Went to land after 10 min or so... And the drone started to fly away and ignore my control inputs. Hot the land button a few times, nothing. It got about 40' up and then shutoff. Fell to the ground dead, props off. ...

Re: Barometric altimeter connected through the ultrasound in

Also subscribing. What about a USB based altimeter?

Re: AR.Pro 1.35 Now Available on the Android Market!

What settings do most people like? I really only adjust them generally based on the conditions I (attempt to) fly in. :D

Also can someone confirm that this app does not record video? :(

Re: AR.Flying Ace?

There is only one OEM android app offering, but there are plenty of others on the android market. I am pretty certain there are dogfighting apps for the drone out there. I've had mine for a couple of weeks now... and I'm loving it. It's totally a nerdy "toy" though... so just make sure your BF is ne...

ROOTED MOTO BIONIC | DRONE ORANGE/BLUE | 1.76 FIRMWARE I'm a new drone pilot, and just purchased AR.Pro (for Android) today after reading this thread. I've flown the drone using the freeflight app as well as ARDrone Flight (ARDF, for vid recording). I like freeflight's controls better than ADRF, mai...

Re: AR.Pro 1.35 Now Available on the Android Market!

Just wonder how come the range seems shorter than other apps. Also would be nice to allow customisation of altitude limit (ie select the height) Video recording pls! I don't think the drone is capable of seeing its altitude past ~12', so being able to set it any higher than its defaul 10', wouldn't...

Re: Broken propeller shaft, upper bearing out-of-round

Thanks for this post. I too had a sticky shaft and found that i had cracked a gear, so when it rolled past that tooth on the gear, it expanded and kinda clicked over that spot in the gear. Audibly the sound of the drone flying changed too. As a result of that break, I bought a full new set of gears ...

I've used a 2-part epoxy very successfully, but hot glue also sounds perfect!

I've been using a two part epoxy I had laying around from automotive plastic repairs. I've made several repairs to both the indoor and outdoor hulls successfully with this epoxy.

Re: ar drone light moving propeller

I think I have the same problem . My drone is new and not crashed (yet ) but the magnetic (notch / click ) of one motor is MUCH less than the other 3 . I checked this with props and gears removed , so it is definitely the motor itself . Flies well with the exception of a slight yaw to the left on c...
