Re: SkyController as a Joystick!

Sounds interesting...even though the SC is a but cumbersome ;-)

Have you found any good drone simulators ?

Re: USB Game Controller and Freeflight 3

No but I got the cheap iPega 9025 Bluetooth controller and it works well with FF3 as well as the Freerider FPV PC app ;-)

Re: Modified FreeFlight 2.4.10 APK with game controller support

Great modified app indeed but I've found a few issues : - sometimes stays stuck on the "loading" screen (before you get the video feed), can't figure out why - the ARDrone has a "rough" behaviour, especially in "hover on" mode when you let go of the stick. I thought that was normal until I tried the...

Re: Maps offline AR.FreeFlight 2.4.10 / Map Storing problem?

Map storage works of for me on my Moto G3 but for the life of me I can't see how to get to the GPS screen like on my iPad where I hit the GPS icon at the top right, I must be missing something obvious ? Thanks !

Re: How to extend AR Drone wifi range using wifi router (b/g/n)

Maybe that's the case with a repeater that uses the same SSID as the Drone but not with the EW-7416APN as the signal level shown in the app does change as the Drone flies further back and forth. If it showed the signal level between the smartphone and the repeater it would not change.

Hoping the waypoint programming bit works !
So does the waypoing programming work?

Wondering if the PS3 controller can connect via BT too ?

Re: Drone drops height when stopping

Thanks to the modified APP+PS3 combo it's easy to deactivate the "Hover" mode but even then the AR2 can "lose the plot" after a long acceleration, going into some kind of 360 and vertical, which is very hard to salvage ! Anyone else notice that ? I guess a fix would be to limit the speed...

Re: How to extend AR Drone wifi range using wifi router (b/g/n)

Still using my Edimax EW-7416APN extender that creates its own network SSID so you know what you're connecting to (i.e. not the Drone's wifi). No issues controlling it however I've noticed that sometimes the video signal is lost even though it's showing 3 bars. Anyone seen that with a repeater befor...

Re: Best Battery for the AR2.0 in 2015 ?

My bad, hadn't updated this topic...so they made me jump through a few hoops before replacing the defective battery, had to make a video showing the red blinking and then they wanted me to show the fault with an advanced charger that I don't have... Anyway the 1500mAh battery is nice, not very heavy...

Re: Qgroundcontrol not getting all parameters?

Glad I could be of help. Are you using the UgCS software or Qgroundcontrol? What are you flying over in your video, is it a golf putting range? I prefer the UgCS software on my laptop, but Qgroundcontrols works great on android phone or tablet . I could never get the correct maps on my laptop. For ...

Re: Modified FreeFlight 2.4.10 APK with game controller support

Been flying a bit more, any chance of the X allowing for the toggle of the "Asbolute" mode ? Could come in handy in case you lose the plot !

Re: Modified FreeFlight 2.4.10 APK with game controller support

Ah yes I was wondering if there was an accessory to hold a smartphone. Not cheap at $20 though, might as well by a Mad Catz and have an extra controller...
