Re: Skycontroller update

I initially had issues connecting but did not have that message. In my case FFPro was reporting that the Skycontroller was not being recognized by the app – see pic. I also thought that it was not responding/working as none of the inputs appeared to work and could not get the Bebop 2 to start. Altho...

Re: Skycontroller 2 issues

“Tried” charging does that mean you have charged it or you could not. I do not have a SC2 but when I bought my SC1 the 2 batteries were effectively DOA – one had zero volts and the other 1.73v as it had been sitting on the shelf too long. The supplied charger will not charge if below the threshold w...

Some basic questions on FreeFlight Pro

I have a Bebop 2 and a Skycontroller 1, bought separately, and have installed FreeFlight Pro version 5.2.3. What I notice is that the display on my tablet, a Samsung Tab A 8” running Android 7.1.1, is different to both the manual and a lot of the reviews I look at. I am missing icons that are shown ...

Disco skycontroller 2

I am assuming a Skycontroller 2, as supplied in the Disco package, will bind and work OK with a Bebop 2

Re: Skycontroller update

I am having similar problems but without the that message on my monitor. I can connect and control my Bebop 2 with my Samsung Tab A tablet but cannot connect to the Skycontroller even though it is showing in the WiFi connections. I downloaded and tried to install the 1.7.4 FW but it did not display ...

Skycontroller not connecting to Bebop 2

I recently bought a Skycontroller 1, which I prefer to SC2 as I like the design and build and that it has an HDMI output. I have now bought a Bebop 2 and also a Samsung Tab A 8” tablet and have installed FreeFlight Pro. I have updated the Skycontroller to 1.7.4 and managed to calibrate it. When I st...

Re: Are these batteries stuffed

I managed to get both to charge to 12.6v and will store them at around 50% capacity. What I do not know is how they will perform under load

Re: Can Bebop be connected to 2 skycotrollers

I have ordered a Yuneec FPV goggles. Reading up on the Typhoon H it comes with a "remote" control that allows the rotorcraft to be operated by the remote and the photography by another person on the controller. So I was optimistic that something similar could be done with the Bebop.

Can Bebop be connected to 2 skycotrollers

Is it possible to have 2 controllers connected to a Bebop2 at the same time.

I am thinking of having a skycontroller 1 outputting HDMI to suitable FPV goggles and a skycontroller 2 to actually fly the Bebop2

Re: Should I balance charge Parrot batteries ?

So I understand correctly you are using a 3rd party charger with Parrot batteries ? If so have you noticed any significant performance change that is better / worse than the stock charger.

Re: Should I balance charge Parrot batteries ?

"..It would not make sense to have 4 connectors if the battery has the balancer logic build inside." That makes sense but there appears to be a lack of definitive info regarding this. However I would still like to know whether or not using a 3rd party charger / balancer would damage a Parrot battery...
