Think Tank: Remotely find a lost Drone (or any object)

Fly aways have nothing to do with flying sensibly! The drone can just lift on it's own accord on hover! The only sensible point I would offer is keep your fingers on the controls at all times! You can at least attempt to counteract the ascent that way as described in various posts! Although sensible...

Not a clue - the Gaui 330x I mentioned works out about 800€ with gps and extra stuff, wouldn't have thought this would be any cheaper considering the tech!

X-UFO A cheap but very cool AR Drone rip off!

Check out the cool little LED light show on this very obviously toy version of the AR Drone,

Its got unbreakable hull too - wonder what sort of weight it is? Could be used for a replacement aftermarket product to the stock indoor hull?

Heres the X-UFO

AR.Drone - battle in the livingroom

Perfect :) thanks! Looks great fun! The auto-aim almost makes it too easy though - as a suggestion how about having a circle ghost sight in the middle of the display where the target must be in order to fire and hit?

That poor donkey! Lol :)

Padded Bottom

I love these simple yet effective mods! I can see the benefits - given a hard landing that extra padding could make all the difference - worth a trial for sure!

Oh and I love the chicken chase in the vid - I must admit I'd have done exactly the same! Hahaha :)

Well after a very fast <24h response from Parrot I got the go ahead to return it to HMV for replacement.

Went down today and didn't even need to show a receipt! They did a straight swap on the spot - Drone #4 is now in my possession :))))

Oh and it's got an AG revision MB :)

Luckily it looks like us folks in the UK have a slightly better advantage of an instore exchange at HMV - will be calling local stores tomorrow! The BGA Sounds like a plan and I remember a previous thread that stated support had told them this mod wouldn't void your warranty. Unfortunately I didn't ...

Looks like my main board is gone! Rebuilt the drone and started it - initially I had a red light underneath but after many minutes I still had no wifi and light was still red. Disconnected battery, stripped down again, checked connectors and rebuilt - red light again! Hit reset and the red light wen...

Hello from Portsmouth, UK

Hi Richard! You are in good hands here - ARDF members are always at hand to help new members! :) there has been a few mentions and even remember seeing a video somewhere of AR Pursuit.. The pursuit game hasn't had much of a mention because of a few reasons I think: 1. Because of it's still relative ...

The Drone is only designed for a 50 meter range?

I can't believe how well that drone flies! It's got agility like you'd never see on normal touch screen control!
