When you tap Fly and Film and display screen opens,there should be message warning people to Flat Trim and Calibrate before flying(and check RTH)........most problems(in my opinion 60-70%) are caused by people not knowing/doing flat trims and calibrations....simple warning could minimize all those problems

@eflyersteve I have developed such an app for iOS. Shameless promotion, yes, but I have an in-app-purchase available that will let you broadcast live to facebook or youtube. I just released it and would appreciate any feedback or positive word-of-mouth. This site's private message page doesn't seem to be working but if you shoot me an email I'll get you an iTunes code to unlock all my in-app-purchases. SteveLobdell@gmail.com
EDIT: I'll do codes for first 10 to email me.

I would like to add suggestions for some simple but useful automatic 'quick-tap' recording features to aid in achieving the best recordings using simple flight pattern actions..for instance these examples below..close to some of the 'FollowMe' actions and FlightPlan functionality..but limited and geared for no fuss automatic recording..(like the tap access to automatic flips in FFPro).
- Hover360..standing variable-speed outward-facing 360 spin/record at altitude with a single tap anytime.
- Circles360..variable radius, altitude, and speed. Inward-facing to circle a poi. Adjustable Record Start-Delay Timer.
- HorizontalWireRun..adjustable angle, altitude, facing direction (focal point or constant direction), run distance, and speed.
- VerticalWire Run..adjustable run angle, altitude, facing direction (focal point or constant direction), run distance, and speed.
Some of this stuff looks a bit familiar. Do you guys have some thoughts? I know of several old features that have been the desires of many for a long time. Maybe we could compile an overly exhaustive list towards creating a greater-good..and provide a convenient way to show Parrot what users want.
I wanted a Cup-Holder for the Skycontroller out of that Mini Factory User Designed Accessory 3D Printing Contest that Parrot held early this year..but no. I do like having the option to fine-tune any aspect of any setting. I like information..I like access to even more information when I am ready for it..I do not like imposed limitations to advanced settings. I don't like waiting..but features are developed slowly and we would be spoiled if we had everything right away...right?

In RTH,instead bars,to have again number of gps satellites connected to BB and SC
The number of satellites isn't a very good measure of the positioning accuracy or GPS quality. There are better metrics and since FF3/FFPro are currently using some GNSS quality indicator to color GPS icons green or orange, perhaps the numerical value of that indicator could be exposed and displayed on the user interface in Settings.

I would like to see a feature added in future relases of FF3 that allow the video stream to be shared via online services (youtube live, periscope, etc). A view without the on-screen controls would be nice and would really let the Bebop become a portable live media device. DJI is already ahead of Parrot in this respect, but the portability and stability of the Bebop reall would set it apart for use by content providors - i.e. amature newscasters, storm chasers or anyone who wants to share the view.
Where there are ways to accomplish this by using multiple apps, inclusing it in the FF3 app would certainly be a noce feature.
Anyone else see value in this?
