AR Drone 2.0 + PS4 controller + USB cable

Post by ondrike » 07 Nov 2014, 08:41

Hi all dronauts :)

new drone owner here

I'd like to ask what I'm doing wrong - I have AR Drone 2.0, PS4 controller and together connected with mirco USB cable (not bluetooth, because I don't have rooted android device)
I have placed all the buttons I need on the screen and save as profile, selected application to use with my profile, but when I start piloting only one working button is R2 :/
In input settings I have checked sixaxis controller.

Please help me guys !!!

Thanks

The cable is only a charging cable. The PS3 and PS4 controllers are bluetooth only. You can use a wired controller and an emulator app. I use Bt/usb joycenter app and a logitech f310 wired controller.

The BT PS4 with a rooted phone and sixaxis app is the sweetest method by far.

Root that puppy!

Not sure if you've 'fixed your issue' but if you're for whatever reason looking for a new phone/upgrade at the moment you should consider the Sony Z3 or Z3 Compact - completely compatible with PS3 and PS4 controllers via bluetooth! Use an appropriate drone flying app with gampad mapping support (I use ARDrone Flight PRO) and you're off.

Sooooo nice. No need to root or anything. Get a Sony Game Mount for a PS4 controller as well (like £12) and you're completely set up - phone connected physically to the controller about 2" away and rotatable. I'd send a picture of my set up but I can't take a photo of my phone and controller, controlling my phone, with my phone.... :shock:
