i think you’re right if the rth altitude option is added then ffp would be updated accordingly.

Although I fully agree that an adjustable RTH height would be a helpful new feature, you're asking for something that was never, never  promised by Parrot. Let's stay on the topic of version 4.4.0 and try to get more important problems (like motors cutting out mid-flight) corrected before we start asking for more features. Every user on this board will give a thumbs up to Parrot if their drones simply fly reliably  again...

Re: [Update] FreeFlight Pro version 4.4.0 for iOS

Ok, somebody changed the subject line of this thread. Don't the admins know the difference between a firmware update for the drone (the new 4.4.0) and an update of the App (FreeFlight Pro) which is currently at 5.0.2?  And why does the subject say iOS now? Drone firmware is independent of your devices operating system... Wow... Clueless...

 

Back on topic, has anybody tested 4.4.0 yet? I'm glad they addressed the battery issue, but how did that affect flight time? And what about these other reported problems with 4.3.1?:

 

(1) frequent short range disconnects

(2) FPV freezing/blanking 

(3)The 1-2 second FPV video lag

(4) Camera angle bugs in Flight Plan

(5) App crashes and can't re-connect

 

Are these problems fixed, or is parrot still adding new features without addressing known problems? I was really hoping for a solid bug-fix that makes the Bebop 2 reliable to fly again...

Hi all,

 

A new version of Freeflight Pro is available for OS (version 4.4.0). Don't hesitate to share your feedbacks about this version. 

 

Thank you.

Thank you, but why don't you listen to what this community is saying?

Just giving us adjustable RTH height would get a thumbs up from just about every user (or even give us the reasons why you are unable to provide this)

Take a look in the Feature Request section and you will see what people want from your amazing drone, engage in the discussion and make the software as good as the hardware deserves.

Or am I just talking to myself?

@Joller79

i think it enables the rth even when bb is in Landing  process. Like if you hit land by accident you can after initiate rth. Honestly I think before we could cancel landing and initiate rth command too. Am I right ?

@Jacko80

- User RTH is now possible while in landing state   .. I read this as rth is user asjustable???  Or is it only when landing you can adjust for fine landing spot???

Re: UPDATE - Firmware 4.4.0 for Bebop 2 - Bebop 2 Power

Cool...  But what do you mean by adjusting RTH WHILE LANDING???  Is it RTH height what can be adjusted as people are wanting??
