Well thought out features, responsive and easy to operate, perhaps more functions for the camera. I would have awarded a 5, but I was disappointed there is no export function for the £15 purchased 'Flight Plan' addition, the plans are saved but there is no way as far as I can tell to find them or get them off the device. This is consistent with a 'demo', not good enough for a paid addition. It would be extremely useful to be able to transfer plans from one device to another, perhaps share them or back them up. I find it extraordinary that I can download the recorded 'telemetry' of my flights through my Parrot account, but not the actual flight plans themselves.
Working great now after latest patch to 5.0.1. Love all the new features. I wish they would add a user defined battery alert. That vibrated your phone at a predefined battery percentage. Ex. 10%, 20% etc. Would be great when you lock your phone in follow me or cameraman modes.
The latest update is good..... But, for Bebop 2 1. It needs the option to set return home altitude and time, 20 metres is not high enough, it needs to be selectable up to 100 metres in certain situations. 2. It needs the option to turn off auto recording, I really don't want to record every takeoff. I want to choose when I start a video, especially with limited onboard memory. 3. It needs an option to fly higher than 150 metres, whilst 150m is the safe option especially in areas near airports etc, when trying to take scenic video of mountains, cliffs, waterfalls or any high terrain, 150 metres is not enough. Maybe make it a paid expert mode option or something like that. 4. Make the follow features work with the skycontroller and other controllers other than just the phone, it would be nice to use cameraman feature with the control of the skycontroller. Its so close to being the best app it could be, please let the users have the control they need.
I like the new features they added but there are several issues that I have found: 1. It's missing the return to home adjustment for the delay. 2 The app responds very slowly to my inputs even when it's on sport mode. 3. The point of Interest Lock crashes the app and cannot reconnect to the drone. I had to restart the phone while the Drone was up in the air. Luckily the Drone was 5 ft high so I had to use a shirt to knock the Drone back down
It works fine and has a nice clean layout. That said, it has bugs. It tends to need to be restarted in order to connect to the file manager and I've had it crash a few times in programming the auto pilot. Otherwise it's not bad. I am a bit frustrated by the inability to change the altitude settings above 150m. While I appreciate the hard setting for whatever legal implications (which are our responsibility not the programmers) it creates a real limitation when trying to ascend a hillside and you can only make it part way up. I would also like to be able to set a return to home altitude aside from the default. All the above are living in a valley issues but they don't need to be issues. Lastly, I'd really like to be able to adjust the battery warning sound. While I appreciate the 10% warning, I'd rather be able to change it to 20% or 30% or whatever to be more practical for each flight. Good luck out there.
Horrible. can't fly my drone now becuase The app doesn't know that I'm connected to the bebob drone wifi
Fixes flight settings synchronization problems and the crash at the access to the Cameraman mode.
