This company cuts corners I bought this out of impulse although I did some homework before I did but, learning the batteries last 12 too 15 minutes tops. It's like this: once you pay for it you will need to buy bigger batteries, an additional remote be it a android one for like $50 or the one you would really want that they would Charge almost as much as you paid for the Drone. Then they'll nickle and dime you with FLIGHT PLAN for an extra $20 &now FOLLOW ME for another fee which won't work for the 1st Gen bebop drone.
Pretty good Ok people need to stop attacking Parrot for the $20 flight plan and $20 follow me... I have them, a one time purchase and thats it... I don't use them but have them. You don't need to get the add-on stuff to fly with the app. My only issue I have is trying to take still pictures. Im not a big fan of the fish eye look. I know that is a more raw look but honestly to most people the jpeg format is a better one. I wish parrot can make a picture format with the resolution of 4096x3320 with OUT the fish eye look.
Has trouble interfacing with Nougat. I have yet to get my BB2 to connect consistently to my phone using Android 7.0. I've used it successfully with an iPad and another Android running 5.0. So if you have the latest version of Android, good luck... Pretty disappointed that the only means of interfacing my drone is simply unreliable. Improvements urgently needed.
Works good for me. I like this app to control my drone. There are other free apps out there you could choose that offer free flight plan and follow me mode but I use this one.
You people have no idea what you're talking about. When I use my bebop 2 it works... Kinda sorta OK because I have connection issues to. Parrot, I hope you are reading this. People say your app is "bad", "hate you parrot" and "waste of space and money for flight plan and follow me". $20+$20=$40. $40! What, did you use most of your money to make drones? So please please bring the price back down to... I don't know, $10. And for those who have major problems, they need freeflight 3. Please bring freeflight 3 back. Please, I'm begging you.
Up we go! I like this new version of the app. I would like the GPS info on the flight control screen. It flies my Bebop 1 great and transfering my videos and pictures also works easy. I have a number of flights on my Bebop both outdoors and indoors in a gym. The indoor position stability is amazing with the vertical looking camera and the ultrasonic transducer. The picture and video quality is very good for a 186 degree FOV lens that only uses a portion of the FOV. The electronic image stabilization works smooth.
NEW: addition of Follow me - GPS & visual tracking mode (In-app purchase with 15 days free trial per drone). Not compatible with Skycontroller 1, Bebop 1 and tablets.
- FreeFlight 3 now becomes FreeFlight Pro. Use to pilot Parrot Bebop drone, Bebop 2 and Disco.
- FreeFlight Mini is now available to pilot the Parrot Minidrones Airborne Cargo, Airborne Night, Hydrofoil, Rolling Spider, Mambo and Swing.
With FreeFlight Jumping, you can pilot the Jumping Sumo, Jumping Race and Jumping Night.
This app support follow me for Parrot Bebop Drone. Test first, buy later.
