About this app

Android ARDrone Flight Pro Application.
Control the V1, V2 AR.Drones and Bebop v1/v2, with support for Cardboard style VR.

ARDrone Flight Pro includes all the ARDrone Flight Platinum Features: V2 Drone support, Flight Animations and Autonoumous Mode.

Use this app if you require all the Platinum Features without using the ARDrone Flight Platinum Features in-app payments, with extra Pro enhancements.

Pro enhancements include 3D orientation model; HUD attitude; new icons to maximise video area; hide all icons to fly by HUD; colour and saturation control for all UI.

See ARDrone Flight Pro discussion on forums.

V2 AR.Drones require a powerful Android CPU - Galaxy S is a minimum requirement when using local video recording recording with overlays.

Bebop support is dependant on the Parrot firmware, so no autonomous GPS, just wifi based under app control.

This software uses libraries from the FFmpeg project under the LGPLv2.1.
This software also uses the unmodified JAR of Apache Commons Net licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0.



Flight Animations:
* Flight animations allow a sequence of flight animations to be built up and then played back when the Drone is flying. This includes V2 only flips.

Autonomous Mode:
* Uses you device GPS with Mapsforge maps to fly the Drone under autonomous control.
Uses offline mapping from Mapsforge.

N.B. Autonomous mode is why the Location permission is used.

Video Recording:
* Video recording to a file and/or USB recording on V2 Drones.
* Local video recording with optional overlay of drone flight information. When used without overlay this is in HD for V2 drones.

UI Configuration:
* Fully configurable UI.
* Control via tilt, on-screen joysticks or USB gamepads.
* Individual icon, text and joystick scaling.
* Separate joystick deadzones and sensitivities.
* Colour and saturation sliders to change on-screen UI colour and intensities of all UI.
* Hide all on-screen UI at the touch of a button to fly by drone video using the HUD.

Flight Control:
* Fly by tilt, on-screen joysticks or USB gamepads.
* Use normal, absolute or combined yaw flight modes.

* Create multiple profiles for uses like indoor and outdoor settings; day or dusk UI; HUD on/off etc.
* Profiles can be switched quickly from a UI icon.

GamePad Mapping:
* Gamepad mapping allows the mapping of USB gamepad buttons and joysticks.

Update Drone firmware:
* Both the official Parrot download site and latest unofficial firmware downloads.

Rediscovered my AR drone earlier this year. To anyone in the same boat, this app is not intensive by the standards of 2022, works well and allows for far more engaging flight. I haven't seen any crashing like in other reviews and haven't had any issues with licensing. The only issue I have is difficulty recording. I cant get it to work consistently but that may well be something I'm doing wrong. If anyone is out there flying AR drones, this is a must.

App constantly crashes, sometimes in mid flight. Do not use this app.

After using the freeflight version of this app, and being disappointed with poor response on the controls, I decided I was going to buy a wired controller for Android. Found out this app works with that. After using just with the touchscreen controls, it is clearly superior. I did have issues with initial take-off, but it resets well and is much easier to control. I look forward to trying a wired controller with it next.
