Thanks Solaris8x86, The ebay link to the Martian Booster seems to be for DJI models. Is there one for the Bebop 2......??
Also i have a Shit Controller 2 (the newer small model) so would your option 1 mod even work with it or would i need to get an old style big ShitController.....

Also you say that the mod i purchased from ebay for the Bebop improves FPV..... Does that only transmit video back to controller/smart device or does it also receive controller signals from Shit Controller??

Lastly can you suggest a what FPV headset to get????..... I'm guessing fatshark dominator v3 but maybe you know something different???

Also i could be easily convinced to ditch the Bebop 2 and go with another drone..... Which is the best drone to get for the longest range with FPV....??

Mavic Pro?

Ok so I'll stick with parrot then.... So what about the Bebop 1 is it better in anyway since the bebop2 is no major upgrades and more locked down with the read only enabled..... Like is the bebop 1 easier to mod properly using router mod.... I just want the best FPV experience possible... Money isnt really an issue.... I'd just like a setup where i can sit in my home and fly the drone far via fpv and also having it a portable setup is a bonus.
I think i may need skyshit 1 though as the skyshit 2 has no hdmi output so i cant link it to a large monitor which id like to do..
I have a galaxy S8 so maybe i could even use that with some hdmi convertor but it would need to be connected to the drone throught some repeater as S8 wifi is crap... Or am i wrong... Does it only recieve data for FPV and with the mod i bought it will be fine...???


So sorry for all the questions man but you seem to know everything about these bebops so expect a lot more....I think you know more about the bebops than parrot does..lol

Ok so i have a brand new bebop now for FPV/Modding and i can use the older new one for other features like follow me and flight plan :-)..... On my new one i have not yet updated the firmware and out of the box it is on Version 4.3.1 so id like to downgrade it, Know how to do it just need 3.9.0 FW....... I have FW here i found online saying it is for the B2 V3.2.0 but isn't that too old?? Also can i go straight from 4.3.1 to 3.9 or do i need to go to older version first then upgrade to 3.9?? Sorry just want to be sure before doing anything incase i brick it.... :-o

I will get the martain and try it out with the auriga app. One thing i have read about that app though is some drones dropping from the sky.... Is this because they were on newer shitter FW? I really want the best trouble free experience as possible..... Also looking at getting a tracker as already lost one bebop2 during a flight plan.... :-(

And the only real thing i dont like about the stock FPV setup is the spacing between the lenses means 1 eye is always not always in focus and it can lead to sore eyes i think.


Seen one guy on youtube use this headset with Bebop 2.... What do you think?

Also what batteries do you use..... Is it possible to get much longer than the stock flight time if i got your battery tray mod or does that just mean you can use cheaper cells..

I got 2 GiFi Power Aftermarket Bebop 2 batteries from ebay advertised as 4000Mah..... Thats the time i lost the bebop during flight plan.... It turned up and the battery casing had bust open revealing 3 x 3000Mah cells..... Not exactly what i paid for...lol

Thanks man. Yes i have a good understanding of LiPos i think..... I made the 52v 12Ah battery pack for my first ebike from old laptop cells... I have modded one of the parrot stock charger leads by cutting and splicing on a standard type 3s ballance lead and + - connections so i can use it with my Genuine skyrc Imax B6 charger so all cells charge fully to 4.2v each..... I also have the habbit of using fire proof bags when charging and storing lipos..... Not had an accident with one yet apart from the fake bebop battery that fell from the sky..... Didnt trust it after that as the foil packing on one cell was damaged so I took it to the back yard and hit it wit a hammer....lol The reaction was prety violent.... From my wife i mean.... :lol:

solaris, what exactly is different from FW 3.9 to 4.4. I am temped to pick up one of your boosters as I am sick of only getting 1200Ft. of range from my SC2 and BB2. As you said your booster takes care of the BB2 side. But I figure there has to be less expensive way on the SC2 side. Basically all the martian is a couple 3W boosters and a couple High DBi panels correct? I know FPVLR has similar products as well but all seem to be about the same price ~$250USD.

I also wanted to ask you, does your booster require any software changes (I know in the mod video you ran a change to the software) but was not sure if it was required or not.

thanks for your help.
