I bought the parrot bebop drone at the local walmart here and took it home all excited to try it out. So I read the instructions on how to pair it a few times and thought it was pretty easy to do but sadly no. I turned the paperweight on and waited a few minutes for it to boot up and pre paired to do the easy pairing and it was easy to pair to the galaxy note 2. Says "connectef". Then I downloaded the app called freeflight pro and installed it. When I opened the app up it said "connecting" but never connected. I even rebooted both the phone and the paperweight. I would recomend this fine piece of equipment for a light weight paperweight
Works well as advertised. It works well every time; it has not crashed nor suddenly stopped working like the DJI GO app or the Litchi app. After Parrot replaced the Free Flight 3, the map pre-loading feature disappeared entirety. Furthermore, I can no longer connect my Bebop 2 with the old Black Edition Skycontroller with the new Free Flight Pro. I Hope that Parrot will fix these bugs by the coming spring.
Hi parrot the app is really good but ever since today the app could not be opened due to crashing every time. I tried the app on 2 devices and they both crashes when I loaded it up and I couldn't fly my drone. I tried to use a Samsung Galaxy Tab4 and a Moto G4 Play phone. If you can reply that would be awesome. Thanks Rylan.
Terrible connection management, almost lost my drone The app has very hard time connecting to the drone (Bebop) even when Android wifi is explicitly connected to the drone hot spot. On the ground this is taking many retries, but when connection is lost in the air this is unacceptable - the wifi reconnects, but the app does not and the drone cannot be controlled, your only hope is the automaric return to home.
Worst app ever! Using this with bebop, bebop 2 and sumo spider on a couple of different phones and it's a miracle if it connects! Wifi is on but the app will not see the drone. Useless! Also the audacity to ask 15 quid for the maps feature and then another 15 for the follow me... Shame on you,
The app keeps shutting down with a message that says "Unfortunately, Freeflight Pro has stopped". With the app unusable, my Bebop 2 drone is rendered useless. Please fix it soon as I am bringing it along for my holiday end of Mar 2017..
