AR Drone 2.0 Great little drone. Easy to fly after adjusting flight settings. WiFi dropped out a few times with rough landings which required disconnecting & reconnecting battery then reconnecting with my phone. Good video & photos although the camera does need strong light for good colour definition. Photos & video record easily to my phone or USB.
I am enjoying this drone and app a lot. Thanks Update: When i did the last update for my android phone. The app just seems to hang on loading the flight portion of the app. this is sad becaus the kids and i have used this alot. Including checking for damage on the house. Its working with my ipad but i would like to see if there is a way to step back the update for android products becaus if your trying to cater to apple product's its limiting your market.
The sofrware is used to control the AR drone with the GPS data logger. earlier versions had the ability to download the raw data for use in other applications, but when the company introduced a newer more expensive model, the capability was removed from this app and kept only in the "pro" app that is only compatible with the new drones. And the drone's software was also updated to prevent it from being compatible with any other third party apps or older versions of this one. Anyone purchasing any parrot product should be aware that capabilities shown in their Youtube videos may be removed at any time that they come out with new and improved products.
Connection Always have problems with it connecting I looked it up and typed in my IPHONE address and still won't connect. I tried my friends AR and I connected right away. The controls are very touchy and take some getting used to. Need to come with instructions that I don't have to google.
I am enjoying it I am using this app with my first drone and like it. Its very easy to use, although the first initial set up was a bit of a pain trying to get one and other to connect but after that i really enjoy it. As a beginner and not an expert I had absolutely no experience before this and find it good especially for beginners.
Nice app until it stopped recognizing my android Just started using it a month ago and everything was fine until yesterday when trying to connect to my android Wii fii as I usually did it starts but then says I have a week signal. Tried again today and same thing, starts to load Wii fii then disables it due to week signal. Tried removing app then reloaded app and still same issue. I noticed a review about no trouble shooting support in manual. Well now I have a $300.00 drone that looks cool but isn't flying which sucks. Please fix the problem in your app.
Added GPS Flight Recorder support
Many bugs fixed
