Re: New Parrot drone later this year......

makes you wonder if they will release a higher volume battery as part of the sales cycle - as the pricing may position this in the same market as DJI's offering.

Re: Wifi antenna kit installed

Did some testing yesterday evening, as the weather has been bad for so long - it flew fantastically well! Range for me, with the extender, iPad and wifi antenna is around 200-300meters. I might change the location of the antenna at some point but its a considerable improvement over the stock AR Dron...

Wifi antenna kit installed

After ordering from Kyle's online store and dealing a lot with customs, I managed to get everything installed today... Cannot wait to try it out once the weather permits here in Helsinki! The board was a 2.1 revision (my original was a 2.2 revision). This meant after powering it on, there was an upg...

Re: AR DRONE RANGE EXTENDER - Need help choosing the best op

MrExtremeBlades, how does the directional antenna work out? I might go the same route :) Fantastic job with the paint job also! Has anyone tried the TP-Link 8dbi antennas? Is there nay noticeable improvement, or do they just ensure the performance while maintaining range? http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-...

Re: Sport Cross mounts for zip-tie landing feet.......

Very impressive! With the modifications made, does it fly in a more nimble manner, and not like the Titanic?

Re: Greetings from Finland!

Hi, Setting up the WA830RE is very simple. - Power on your drone, and let it do the motor self check (wait till all lights are green) - Plug the WA820RE into power. - Connect to the default wireless network the WA830RE creates (something like "TP-LINK_XYZ_123") using your laptop / iPad / tablet - On...

Re: Drone Control HD for iPad - compatible with AR.Drone 1 a

I am a current user of the Drone Control HD for iPad application. Works very well, and the "tools" are an awesome addition.

Thanks :)

MeteoEarth HD

Although iOS comes with its own weather app, and many people have there own favourite, I wanted an application on my iPad to tell me the wind speed, and the suggested wind speed in the coming hours. I purchased "MeteoEarth HD" and it works fantastically well. The app uses GPS to pinpoint your locati...

Re: How to extend ar drone wifi range using wifi router (b/g

I went with the TP-Link TL-WA830RE and so far so good. I might upgrade the extender antenna following from feedback in this thread, however I only place it on the floor currently. I am waiting on my WiFi antenna motherboard to arrive from central US drones, which will be the last modification I do f...

Updated the links with the YouTube videos themselves.

Greetings from Finland!

Hey! :D I purchased my AR Drone 2.0 at the end of March 2014 - an Elite edition with the green hull. After reading (and watching A LOT of YouTube videos) I made the required modifications so I can fly as "trouble free" and enjoyably as possible. Currently I have: - Installed stainless steel bearings...
