Hello,

in the current version the button are "hard assigned" to the gamepad, you can not change them. When connecting the gamepad a help layout is shown with all the buttons on it. You can choose between two different layouts.

More informations also in the MFI gamepad thread: http://www.ardrone-flyers.com/forum/vie ... =43&t=7736

Great Ar.Tommy! I received my gamepad some days ago and it works really great with Drone Control. The control with the gamepad is very more precise than with the touch screen.

I have some questions about Drone Control:
* Some time the app says that the USB is full. It is a 16Gb USB stick and it has more than 12Gb free. Any ideas?
* How can I download or send the navigation data? When I press the mail icon on the graph it exit to the main screen (perhaps a bug?)
* In the speed graph it show to lines, one blue and one orange (as I remember...) What are the meaning of each lines?
* What is the option the says "Fix checkplt bug"?

Thanks very much. Great app and much more when using a gamepad.

Thankx!

Hello,

the AR.Drone can be really picky when it comes to usb sticks and sizes. It is very likely that it only uses 4GB of the 16GB capacity but I'm not sure about that. There was a source but I can not find it at the moment.

If the app exits to the main screen this means it crashes - which would be a bad bug. The best thing is contacting me via email. Or can do this from within the app or from my website. I dont want to post the email address here because of spammers. Please let me know which iOS version and device you are using.

In the speed graph the different colors are x,y and z speed.

Sometimes the AR.Drone will not update the firmware throwing a "check plf" error. The "fix check plf bug" should fix this problem. Use it only when you are having this problem.

EDIT: wohoow my 800th post.
