Wi-Fi band

 

Connect the Parrot Bebop Drone to the 2.4 or 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands.

The 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band enables you to fly the Parrot Bebop Drone from a greater distance. It is generally more congested than the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band in urban areas.

The 5 GHz Wi-Fi band enables you to obtain a better quality connection between the Parrot Bebop Drone and your smartphone for streaming footage. Check your smartphone user guide (or the technical specifications) to see whether it supports connection to the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band. If it does not, use the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band only.

 

To switch the Wi-Fi band (2.4 GHz or 5 Ghz) manually without using the application, hold down the on/off button of the Parrot Bebop Drone for 6 seconds .

 

Note: The diagram at the bottom of the screen shows the state of the Wi-Fi channels.

 

Before flying the Parrot Bebop Drone, ensure that you comply with the Wi-Fi frequencies restrictions for the area in which you intend to fly. Certain frequencies may be restricted or forbidden. Selecting the country and activating the outdoor option enable FreeFlight Pro to adapt the available channels according to the legislation of the selected country.

 

For example, in certain countries using the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band may be prohibited in outdoor mode.

 

In automatic mode, FreeFlight Pro automatically selects a channel according to the country, the mode (outdoor/indoor), and the Wi-Fi band selected and the congestion of the channels.

 

If you encounter a problem with the quality level of the Wi-Fi connection:

  1. Select Manual mode.
  2. Select a non-overloaded channel using the information displayed on the diagram.
