Re: Definitions

Thanks Tommy.
I'll do some more experimenting once our weather warms up a bit.
(16 deg's today, and 12 + inch's snow coming for Sat, Sun.)
Will change the % and fly, to see if it makes any diff.
Appreciate the help.

Re: Definitions

Thanks AR Tommy!
I thought I was getting senile. At least someone else doesn't know what that means.
Am I correct that the setup mentioned does enable for faster or slower response to a movement of the controls?
(More or less sensitive)

Re: Definitions

Thanks for response. Yes I did, but maybe I'm just dense. In my example... "Master Rate Control" The manual says.. "Reduces all flight surfaces rate to the % specified" I think it means that the drone will respond slower, or faster to a given input. I'm really not sure if that is really what it mean...

Definitions

Does anyone know of a source for definitions explaining the settings used in the AR Pro 3 and Free Flight Pro? Not being familiar with a lot of the technical language, I am constantly wondering just what some of those settings do, and how they will effect my drone. Example: AR Pro3 Flight Settings M...

Re: Background music for video editing

First off, I don't make any profit from any of my videos. I post only to show some of my travels on my bike, Illustrate how-to projects, etc. Most any subject I think someone will find interesting. I make videos because I enjoy the creative process. In no way am I expecting to profit from them. I br...

AR Pro3 Question

When flying with my Bebop2, with AR Pro 3, I notice the two flight controls are a bit touchy. Small movements make quick changes in Bebop's flight.
I can adjust this in Free Flight Pro. Is there a way to make them less sensitive in AR Pro3?

Re: Follow Me app?

Thanks Waterlanding! Guess I'm out of luck. I don't have a smart phone. I only have my Samsung Galaxy Tab-2 to fly with. I wish Parrot would make these little known pieces of information easier to know. I just installed AR Pro-3, and am learning to use it. Could you tell me if it's " Follow Me " fea...

Follow Me app?

I'm confused! When I try to find the Follow Me app in Play Store, nothing comes up for Parrot. The first that comes up is the Free Flight Pro app. Followed by Free Flight 6, and AR Pro-3. Is there a separate download for the Follow Me app? Is it now included in the FreeFlight Pro? My current version...

Re: Are these batteries stuffed

Thanks WaterLanding, appreciate the clarification. There's a lot of opinions out there about how to charge batteries, amount of charge to leave on one when not using it for a while, etc.
Hard to sort through good, and bad info.

Re: Are these batteries stuffed

WaterLanding said... "Lipo batteries can only be charged with what's called a "Balanced Charger" such as Parrot provides." I have a Bebop (White) and due to a couple of returns to Parrot service, I've accumulated 2 extra white batteries. My original bebop was red, and I have it's red battery as well...

Cowboy:
Thanks for response.
Quote: "(The fault could of been firmware 4.0.3 AKA stalling and shutting off in flight was a common complaint)"

I had my second Bebop do just that in June this year.
( Fall about 25 feet after shutting off. )
They did replace it under warrantee.

Any one have experience with Tech Rabbit? Sky Controller, Wal-Mart

I see Wal-Mart, on-line, lists a Sky controller (blue) for $109.99 It's listed as shipped from Tech Rabbit. Tech Rabbit also lists it for same price, and it's labeled as "Refurbished" on their web site. Questions: Is this a good deal? Is this company safe to do business with? Will this Sky Controlle...

User Manual

Is there a more current User Manual available for my Bebop-2? All the ones I can find are so outdated, they are mostly unusable. All screen images don't match my current software.
