Bebop Red, White, ??

Is there any real difference in the Bebop red, white, etc. besides color. Is one newer than another? Technical differences?
Looking on Amazon.com, different colors seem to cost much different.

Re: Motor Failure (5) ?

Do the props look like they are all good? I had a hard landing (in low bushes ). Replaced one prop, and it flew, but didn't sound normal. I removed all props, and placed them on flat surface. Measured how much each prop tip was off the flat surface. A very small difference of about 1/32 to 1/16 inch...

Re: Lost elevation & Distance readouts

Thanks for the great explanation. I'm going to try and find V-5.1.1 and install on my Galaxy tab-2. Keeping my fingers crossed to see if it solves my problem. I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to get the FFP V-5.1.1 onto my tablet. As said before, I am just learning how to use my tablet. M...

Re: Lost elevation & Distance readouts

AR Tommy I don't know how to do that, and every time I brought up the subject, Parrot service just ignore my question. I'm not very computer savvy. If it can be done, without killing my Bebop, I'd like to know how. I was running V-4.4.2 before, and had all readouts. dries_w I would have thought Parr...

I'm not surprised.

My experience with Parrot support is very mixed at best. They were great on my first two problems. 1st was bad video from the camera on my Bebop-2. Replaced my Drone with a different one. 2d was when they replaced my Bebop after it just shut off, and fell to ground. However, after I did the V-4.7.1 ...

Re: Lost elevation & Distance readouts

After several e-mails to Parrot support, I'm really frustrated! I've tried every thing they suggested to try. Several times! All they are doing is sending me same things to try, with no fixes. This last e-mail was just a list of videos to watch. This is a defect which occurred just after doing a upd...

Re: Bebop GPS Lock ?????

My Bebop 2 is not displaying distance, and elevation. The GPS icon never goes green. I did have it working until the V-4.7.1 update. Parrot service says their engineers are working on it. Seems like this product is just not engineered to be very reliable. I've had 2 replacements since I got it Chris...

Re: Lost elevation & Distance readouts

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/wiki/Manual-firmware-upgr...

Re: Lost elevation & Distance readouts

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

BTW: Can someone explain the GeoFence settings?

Lost altitude & speed readouts

I'm using Freeflight Pro V-4.7.1 with my Bebop-2

When I fly my elevation, and distance displays do not register any numbers.
I tried factory reset, and re-installing Free Flight Pro, but no change.
Any ideas how to get these to show my elevation, and distance while flying?
