App and SkyController Update: now allows user to control frame rate, 24fps yields 100% better video quality from 1 year ago --- Pair this FreeFlight App with SkyController hardware: Exhilarating Bebop control. I set Wi-Fi to a 5ghz channel for clean signal both to control the drone and see crystal clear video. While a phone or tablet using this App can control the drone, the 4 antennae in SkyController make this App amazing! Negative reviews come from flying using a 1 antenna phone. 5+ stars: great hardware, software combo
Easy to use Great app, easy to use. Wish there were a few customizable such as battery warning. Had a close call flying almost a mile down river when my warning goes off at 5% and made it back with 30 seconds to spare before it powered off while hovering. If I was even 15 seconds further down stream I would have lost it for sure. Would be nice to set it for 15% warning. 5% is just not enough time to get back.
Distance not working Distance overlay in free flight broken so have no idea whatsoever where in the sky the drone is! Need descend on the altitude bar for when take off is on a hill for example and you need to descend. Also RTH unreliable - these things need to be fixed in days not months. Thanks for adding the option is asked for to be able to round corners on waypoints in FP to get non robotic corners.
Crashes all the time after latest update on my tablet, runs OK on my phone. This used to happen with 4.2 jellybean and was eradicated, unfortunately the problem is back. UPDATE !!! Connecting to drone WiFi then opening ff3 stops the app crashing. When in the app I can disconnect drone WiFi and connect my internet WiFi and everything runs. Opening app connected to internet WiFi causes it to crash after about 5 seconds, very strange. Giving a 4 star rating from a 1 now that I have a work around.
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 even 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
Thanks for nothing My bebop ran straight into a truck. First attempt. Took off, since app doesn't take exclusive control of phone was trying to fly and screen changes on phone closing this app. But drone doesn't stop. Had to restart and relog to regain control. TOO LATE!
