I can take photos and record but I can't see anything in the app

Post by JohntyMacc » 27 Aug 2019, 11:45

I've bought myself a Mambo to teach myself how to fly. Having a great time so far.

I can't seem to get any picture from the camera in the Freeflight Mini app. I am able to record video and take snapshots so the camera is clearly connected absolutely fine. I should apparently be able to see the picture on my phone screen however and when I switch to FPV mode all I get is a black screen.

Can anybody help me? I've done a fair bit of googling and can't seem to find anybody else with the same problem.

Hello,

this may sounds obvious but are you using the Mambo with the FPV camera that is connected via Wifi? What's the name of the app you are using?

That’s correct. I’m using FreeFlight Mini. I’ve followed all instructions to the letter, so far as I can tell.

Ok. I think it's worth a try to use another controlling device to see if the problem persists.

I’ve tried it on a friends phone and it worked! Is there any way to fix that on my own?

I've just seen restarting the phone as a potential solution on a thread further down the page but that doesn't seem to have worked for me. I've also tried reinstalling the app and again, no luck.

Can you provide exact device names and operating system versions?

I think I've cracked it... I'm running the Beta of the next ios. Will be downgrading when the next upadte comes along and see if that works.
