Can’t calibrate my Disco

At CES 2016 Parrot unveiled DISCO a new drone prototype that’s actually a full-blown fixed wing plane similar to the E-Bee sense fly but for end users.

Can’t calibrate my Disco

Post by OrvilleWhright » 13 Nov 2018, 10:22

Hi there !

I’m having issues while trying to calibrate my disco ...
it’s brand new, and I did update it to 1.7.1, and my application FreeFlight Pro is updated to.

So when I try to calibrate my drone, it says : “ please turn your drone arround the X axis ( roll ) as shown on the animation ”
But first, the animation is not moving, and then, when I do so, nothing happens... it stays on the screen....

I though first it was a default of my disco so I changed it, but it is still not working ...

So either i’m Doing something wrong, or the app ( or the disco software) is screwed...

Do you guys have any idea of what’s going on ?

Thank you !

Hi Orville, I had the same problem just now on my iPhone - very frustrating.

Luckily I also have an android so I used that to calibrate which did work - the problem I noticed is that the wording has changed - the first screen on iPhone says "Please turn your drone on x-axis as shown in the image" - but on the android version is says "Hold the drone vertical as shown for 5 seconds" - this gets you to the next step, the familiar animation of rotation. It's essentially the same instruction but the fact that they use the word turn had me turning it, and rotating. I think they should really change the text back as it is quite confusing.

So on the first screen of the calibration just hold the drone with camera pointing at the ground for 5 seconds and it should work ;)

Hope this helped. Cheers!

I just did put it the head down when the app asks to rotate on the X axis at first !
