Up we go! Basically I like this new version of the app. I am still learning my way around in it. It flies my Bebop great and transfering my videos and pictures also works as designed. The screen that shows GPS connections did NOT seem to be working correctly at first. It indicated that my tablet had GPS satellites but my Bebop did not. I flew the Bebop anyway. It did fine but I was afraid to test the RTH. I did a reboot on the Bebop and it indicated that the Bebop found satellites and established a Home reference.
Don't download this one but Freeflight Mini if your drone is mindrone I got a minidrone as a gift. Following the instructions in the user menual, I downloaded the app (supposed to be Freeflight 3 but Pro instead). Wasted many hours and found Pro doesn't support Bluetooth at all. Finally found another app for minidrones. There is no official message telling us Pro is not minidrones anymore. Bad service!
Recalibrate; stuck on option Request application help. Flying experience has been good. But I have two issues. 1. App requests me to recalibrate my Bebop Drone but then crashes. 2. The joysticks, left and right, become stuck. This has happened in the air at about 20 feet and going straight. The drone will get stuck on the option. To clear it i have to go back a page then enter again.
Missing little things.... There are things that they could do to greatly increase the range and reliability of the connection..... including with the skycontroller. Instead of doing an ad hoc connection from the tablet to the Skycontroller to the Drone. It would be wiser to use the USB to connect the sky controller, then adjust the sky controller to a 5 or evein a 2.5 megahertz Channel width. This would increase the SNL. The benefit of this would be to greatly increase the range & removing the tablets in band interference
Power off problem After upgrade to pro my bebop no longer turns off by the switch, ihave to pull the battery to power off. Also battery power does not show on skycontroller, i changed battery to discount a bad one, still the same. All worked ok before on free flight 3.
Still has major issues! It's not crashing on my Android 4.2.1 now, but when you go to settings and back to fly again there is no OSD overlay. You can't see battery compass nothing. You have to back out and come back in to fly again, then the OSD overlay appears again. Also there is no settings for the video quality or exposure. They are missing all together.
