Lost elevation & Distance readouts

Post by larry31 » 16 Jul 2018, 01:12

Running Free Flight Pro on my Bebop2
Last flight I noticed no elevation, or distance numbers showing while in flight.
What could cause this?

Do a calibration again via FreeFlight. See if it comes back.

Thanks for reply.
I did a reset.. ( hold pwr button for 10 - 15 sec's.)
Uninstalled FreeFlight Pro, and reinstalled it.
Calibrated bebop.
Seems to be OK now. ( Only one flight so far.)

Update:
I've been in contact with Parrot support. Here's their reply.

Oct. 8, 2018......... "It is a Drone and Application update issue . But there should be a new update coming soon to resolve this issue .

We apologize again for the inconvenience. "


I replied......... Will I be notified when the update is available?

Oct. 9, 2018......... "You should be notified through the application when a new update is available ! "

When I received my drone, it did display elevation, and distance. I did an update, and sometime after that is when I noticed the missing readouts.

The version when received was... V-4.4.2
The update done was V-4.7.1

Is it possible to go back to original version?

Recently happened to me Larry,

Closed out the app and reloaded the app. That fixed it, happened to both my bebop 2 and both controllers.

Enjoy the bebop,
Paul

I tried that, but it did not make any difference.

BTW: Can someone explain the GeoFence settings?

Is it possible to return to a earlier version update?

My Bebop 2 has V-4.7.1 on it now. I would like to do a manual downgrade to an earlier version, to see if my missing elevation, and distance info can be displayed.

I found this site...
https://github.com/uavpal/beboptwo4g/wi ... ot-Bebop-2
Listing earlier updates for download.

AND

This site lists Release notes...
https://community.parrot.com/t5/Bebop-2 ... te/ta-p/73

When I received my Bebop, it had V-4.4.1 ( It did display elevation, and distance info.)
After doing a V-4.7.1 update, sometime later, I lost my distance, and elevation display.
( YES I did a full reset, and uninstall/re-install of Free Flight Pro! )

I just want to confirm it was the update to V-4.7.1 that lost my display of Elevation, and distance.
