Does anyone on here know what happened to the parrot community forum? Is this where everyone has moved to?

The Parrot community is gone completely.
In a way Parrot allways communicate with costumers the past two years, they deleted without any warnig, they just let the community members and the Parrot customers down in a very indecent way.

I noticed my flights stopped uploading from FreeFlight about a week ago. I cannot access them from FlightData Manager nor are they labeled in the My.Parrot flights list. They are available without labels if I scroll all the way to the bottom of 70+flights and are "unmarked". I tried last night to reconnect my SC2, phone and BB2P to see if they would upload properly, but no. Anyone advise. Thanks.

So it doesn’t look like it’s coming back then!! Typical parrot!!! I hope they sort out the flight data issue as I export mine for the overlays on the videos I take I haven’t flown my drone since the 15th and it seemed to be working then.

This is the response I got today from parrot.


Parrot Community Support pages and our website are being modified at the moment combined together with a new better interface.

Regarding syncing your flights, since when exactly you haven't been able to sync flights? Were there any changes? Can you try to re-install the application allowing all permissions?

It is always our aim at Parrot to provide you, our customer, with top quality service to the best of our ability.

Thank you for supporting Parrot, we do appreciate your business

Yes I too have been looking for the Parrot community today and found this site so registered. Nice to see Bebop2 pilots here :-)

Anyway I logged a ticket this week to see when parrot are going to make RTH manual on the Bebop2 and their response below seems to indicate they may be working on it .... I read on a YouTube today that the Anafi has a manual RTH feature is this true ?

That Parrotd reaction is realy crab. :twisted: In the former Parrot communty we asked for a couple of years for manual RTH input, oure voice was never heard ! !
Of course you can set the RTH in the FW via telnet as @AR-Tommy said but you have to repeat that every FW update and not everybody is familiar with telnet procedure.

Well done Tommy! Let me add that there once was a time when you could use a 3rd party app like AR Pro or Bebop Pro to change the RTH altitude. I just found out that Parrot "broke" that feature with a firmware update, so at this time editing the configuration file via telnet appear to be our only option.

I'm one of the lucky ones. 20 meters is just the right height to clear all the obstacles where I fly.
