Can Bebop be connected to 2 skycotrollers

Post by Clive_fox » 06 Dec 2018, 08:13

Is it possible to have 2 controllers connected to a Bebop2 at the same time.

I am thinking of having a skycontroller 1 outputting HDMI to suitable FPV goggles and a skycontroller 2 to actually fly the Bebop2

Hello,

it's not possible to connect two SkyControllers. But it might be possible to achieve your goal by using a HDMI splitter or Y-HDMI cable (I did not try that)

I have ordered a Yuneec FPV goggles. Reading up on the Typhoon H it comes with a "remote" control that allows the rotorcraft to be operated by the remote and the photography by another person on the controller. So I was optimistic that something similar could be done with the Bebop.

With a tablet connected to the SkyController this is already possible. One can control the Bebop with the SkyController and the other can control the camera tilt and take photos with the tablet.

There is no need for a second SkyController.
