ARDrone Flight Pro - Beta Programme

Post by shawnf » 17 Jul 2013, 12:26

As there has been some interest, we are opening up the Beta Programme ( a bit )...

Request to join the G+ community:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities ... 1993087919

You have to use Google+, but hey, it's a Google beta ;)

You also have to have brought Pro in Play Store and be using the same Google account on your phone and Play Store as you use to join the Beta programme, as 3nslav3 found out (Google say using alternative Play Store accounts is not supported for Betas).

More info on Play Store Betas:

Currently in Beta (well it's more like Alpha quality) is an Android 4.x only version with:
* partial Parrot GPS Flight Recorder support (definitely alpha code and subject to a lot of change as things are broken...)
* showing a licensing wait dialog
* increasing the 3G timeout for license refresh
* changing the Alarm sound to be the Missile Launch from Combat and to repeat the Alarm sound if the battery is low
* change the Parrot SDK to stop auto-lands on reconnects ( you do have to press Land twice to land if you do this, but that's another SDK bug I can't be bothered to track down).

Sorry, but what do you mean?
Both links are working fine and of course to get the Beta you have to ask to be a member of the Beta Test programme by clicking the link on the page.

when I click on the link I get: "404. That’s an error. The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know."

The second link works fine.. I tried copying and pasting and even tried it on my desktop computer, and same thing. And, I'm logged into google+, and can view other parts of the play store via http just fine, however nothing under testing/meavydev.ARDronePro seems to be available to me -- maybe its a country thing? I'm in the USA

Aha - changed my mind :)
The link requires you to be in the G+ community first ;)

So I've set it to be the Community (I think)...

Hi Shawn - I've just put in a request too (Matt // arisianlensman). Very interested in looking at how the GPS code is shaping up

Thanks,
Matt

I just put a request in - I'm in the London with an Nvidia Shield, nexus 4, and drone v2. My only feature request is for the option to choose location of locally recorded videos. Also, happy to let you tinker with the shield & your oculus rift if you're local!

I've done a video to show the use of the Flight Recorder in the Pro beta:

P.S. I'm not in London, but thanks for the Shield offer - perhaps you can reply to they guy having mapping issues with it?

Why you are not using the FlightRecorder-GPS ? Only the Tablet/Phone GPS in the Release Version.

Have Parrot released any information or SDK support for the Flight Recorder ?
Have Parrot released an Android app that supports the Flight Recorder?
In case you can't work it out, the answer is no to both!
If you want beta support, join the Beta programme...
Is it stable yet ? No...
So perhaps you can answer your own question now...
