Re: Follow me question

Very good explanation Waterlanding.
I didn't know that.
I briefly played around with track me the other day.
Same thing was happening to me. It would only rotate around. I had chalked it up to "I didn't know what the heck I was doing"
I was using a tablet so I'm glad I know now.

Re: Flight Plan £19.99

Flight plan has always been an in-app purchase.
They did just recently make follow me available for free.
Maybe that's what your friends got for free?

Re: Skycontroller 2 FPV telemetry

I don't want it to return home if disconnected during flight plan!
That's the only way I can get any distance at all!
LOTS of trees where I live.

Bebop.ca, sent you a PM

Re: Skycontroller 2 FPV telemetry

Quick Question on AR Pro 3 since you guys are talking about it as an alternative to Freeflight Pro. I was just curious, does AR Pro 3 work with the skycontroller 2, as in usb plugged into controller, or is this only an app that works by itself to control the parrot bebop 2? I'm only asking because ...

Re: Skycontroller 2 FPV telemetry

Flew some FPV today.
Using galaxy s7 with android 8
With free flight pro I have zero telemetry.
With AR Pro 3 I get all telemetry except skycontroller battery life.
I also found a setting in AR Pro 3 that allows the telemetry to be displayed in imperial units (feet)

Re: Skycontroller 2 FPV telemetry

That's interesting. I have never been able to get the telemetry even with android 7. I also spoke with Parrot last year around July, and they told me that they had no timeframe for a fix for this. I guess with the introduction of anafi, the chances of getting anything fixed for bebop 2 will be slim....

Re: Skycontroller 2 FPV telemetry

Mav, I think it's just an android thing. I don't think it has anything to do with having an older or newer version of android. Like a lot of other things in this world, I think it's designed around iOS. Personally, I don't like iOS, but tons of people do. You might want to check into the AR Pro 3 ap...

Re: Skycontroller 2 FPV telemetry

Android or iOS?
You get it with iOS, but not with Android
Edit: Sorry, I see now where you said android.
Anyway, no telemetry with android.
I've spoken with Parrot about this and they say engineers are working on it.
My suggestion: only start fpv with a fully charged battery, and time it.
YMMV

Re: Bebop 2 no more.

AR Tommy,

You are correct.
They are somewhat cheaper and more available on ebay. (45 to 333 USD)
What concerns me is what about a year from now? After anafi has been around for a year and there has been no support for bebop 2's?
What kind of availability will there be then?

Re: Bebop 2 no more.

I love my bebop 2 and will keep it. But I can't afford to buy central crosses for $75 either. My guess is that Parrot is going to be focusing mostly on Anafi. I don't have anything to back that up, except for what I've seen on the central cross. I just know that I won't spend more for bebop 2 repair...

Re: Bebop 2 no more.

Well, this doesn`t look good at all. I broke my central cross a few weeks ago. Went to the Parrot store to try to order one. No dice. They were not available. They were listed at $12 but none in stock. Went to amazon. They had one, but for $18. No problem cause i needed one. Just now checked amazon....

Re: Bebop 2 no more.

Hello all, my 1st post here.
I can say for sure that I could not purchase anything from the parrot store yesterday.
It showed all the accessories and spare parts, but only a "discover" button. No way to purchase
