Probably a common question.

Post by 360Rocket » 15 Feb 2013, 15:02

Ill figure out how to search in a minute but in the meantime, I have recently purchased an AR drone 2.0. The Brookstone manager who supposedly owns many of these told me that my R/C would work with an iPAD which he did a fantastic job of demoing in the store but missed qualifying me on which iPAD I owned. I have the iPAD 1st GEN and it seems as though Free Flight is not compatible. I dont want to return this R/C to the store just yet, But Apple says I can't update my iPAD to iOS 6.0 which is required to opewrate Free Flight. So is there another flight program that can operate my AR DRone 2.0 with a first gen iPAD?

thanks, Randy

Hello,

all my apps support the first gen iPad as long as you have at least iOS 4.3 installed. See the overview thread here: http://www.ardrone-flyers.com/forum/vie ... =43&t=4457" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Sweet and delicious apps for your drones.

Thanks Tommy. I was hoping you were the same Tommy as on iTUNES store.

will this fly the Drone 2.0 by tilting the i PAD/ or just touch screen control?
Does this have all the same features as Free Flight?

thanks for the education sir!

True.

Basically yes, but without the whole academy stuff. Instead a lot of extra features.
