Re: AR AR.AR.Drone 2.0 Wifi Channel Selection and Modificati

Thanks for the great info Nemisis! A quick question from a not-so-tech-savvy individual. Based on the link you provided, would you suggest only using the "Center Frequency" instead of the Lower or Upper ones? Deviate from the standard (center) frequency and your device (phone/tablet/repeater) which...

Re: Bebop 2 - Loosing Connection

Thank you for your response Waterlanding. I do use SC. Over the weekend I flew to a max distance of 1300m at an elevation of c. 80m. At that distance I did lose connection to the drone and got it back in connection while it was RTH, again must be said that RTH is a brilliant feature. I did upload t...

Re: Skycontroller 2 aftermarket charger

Hi Guys, I just got a 2nd hand Parrot Disco FPV on ebay. The problem I have is that the "nice" (so to speak) company that sold me the package, forgot to put in the box the skycontroller 2 charging cable... I have opened a case on ebay but while I'm waiting I would like to start using my new toy! I ...

Re: Bebop 2 - Loosing Connection

I bought a second hand Parrot Bebop 2 drone last week and have since flown 15+ times - finding the boundaries of the drone. I live in a rural setting. I lost connectivity to the drone three times so far - all when the Bebop was 500m+ away. My settings are 2.4hz and channel 6 as recommended and I ha...

Re: Follow me and Cameraman mode questions

OK, so I have tried again. Still the same issue. I am using the latest Free Flight Pro, ver 5.2.4 on an android pie. And drone's firmware is at the latest 4.7.1. It doesn't matter if I am using the skycontroller2p, or just my mobile phone. When I activate cameranman and frame my self, the drone isn...

Re: NOTE 9 FFP HELP!!

I have been trying to figure out HOW I can use my Note 9 with FFP. I cannot log in. Parrot has been trying to help me, with no luck. I have even downloaded all the way back to version 5.0 and 5.1 and still cannot login after resetting password and everything. Im wondering, should I just connect via...

Re: Lost Bebop2 help needed?

I love a happy ending. :D

One tip. Put a sticker with your contact info on the drone. It's not unusual to lose a drone and have somebody else find it. How do they know who to return it to without your contact info?

Re: Follow me and Cameraman mode questions

I am using a Bebop 2 power with firmware version 4.7.1, an android pie phone (not a tablet) on a skycontroller 2P. My question is about the cameraman and follow me feature. First on cameraman mode. I have seen videos in which when cameraman is activated, it lets your frame yourself, and will stay l...

Re: Lost Bebop2 help needed?

Thank you. I started using an Ipad, flew a bit, then switched to my Iphone. When I switched I actually don't recall if I double checked for double GPS lock. Lesson learned, heading back on Saturday for a grid search as a last resort. Chalk a Bepop 2, to pilot error :( Be sure to check the Last Know...

Re: Lost Bebop2 help needed?

If the battery is about to die and the drone decides to land, is there a way to find those GPS coordinates of where it landed? Free flying in open field using Skycontroller 2, 3 foot tall grass. Wind switched and drone lost battery power quickly due to increasing wind speed. I thought I saw where i...

Re: Should I balance charge Parrot batteries ?

Thanks but maybe I misunderstood after watching a video by ANTHONYVLOG https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WlKkxAuqHI&t=0s&list=PLocIz47TMlbf0VN7qJEKyWdPxIYwTAMnw&index=3 where he compares a Bebop battery to a GiFi battery. The Bebop battery clearly has circuitry on a PCB which I assume, perhaps wrong...

Re: Operation of Flight Plan for Parrot Disco

When you start a flight under Flight Plan, does the planned route get uploaded all at once to the Disco, and then the Disco executes it? Or does each waypoint get commanded as the Disco progresses through the plan? Also, is it the smartphone/tablet communicating with the Disco, or the SkyController...

Re: follow me with android tablet

FYI, that in my case, I can use "follow me" on my android tablet because my tablet is equipped with GPS module (its a usual WiFi tablet without cellular service). There is no option on a free flight pro main screen, however it I select "fly&film", there is a option to activate it and it works. That...

Re: Follow me question

Thank you Waterlanding. you just answered in one short, comment, what Parrot support has failed to answer in several e-mails. I've explained this attempt to them several times, and all I got back is a bunch of off-the-wall answers. I kept telling them I'm using a tablet, and they never, ever said i...
