Waiting patiently for MACGYVER MOD for AR Drone 2

Post by miamivice55 » 10 Apr 2012, 03:26

Hope good news is forthcoming for ability to fly A.R drone 2 with Macgyver mod,because flying without is as limited as Version 1. Bottom line is flying with Wi-fi bites it. I Want to be able to fly with control, and full range of distance and altitude.Even with new modifications Drone 2 is just a cool toy with great technology period until you can use a mod like Macgyver to fly it with. Anyone who flies with it will probably agree with this assesment ,we are spoiled. 8-)

Does the V2 have the same serial port as the V1?

Meh, The camera on the 2.0 is fantastic with 60 fps 720. I just bid and won on a Ubiquiti PowerAPN Access Point Wireless AP/Bridge 802.11g/n 1000mW

This will give between 500-600 meters or 1600+ feet with video.. Wireless N goes a lot further than B or G, so this might be an under estimate.

Sure, you can go a mile+ with radio, but 1600 feet with video sounds like plenty for me. I'll do tests when I get it and let everyone know how the Wireless N is.


OR Macgyver mod AND the wireless video ;)
