you are right. 2 year old bb2 is really old for keeping up with the market. For $100 more now you can buy much advanced bird. Let’s be honest. We love bb2 but also facing dead end from parrot. Smooth tilt after 3 years. That’s funny indeed. Other companies flood the YouTube with their product with testers, advertisers, “ reviewers “ and “ advisers “. Bb2 power is released. But it’s still a “ mistery “ old bb2 with new skin basically 😊

Did they not lauch the BB2 Power ? imo a recreational mini drone :-) besides that, on the last two years ( so before the 300 Parrot people where fired) more members of this community had asked for more information on updates and more information on time and there was NO reaction from any Parrot official.

I believe Parrot had some job losses and more recently decided to focus on commercial drones.

 

So I suspect the parrot recreational drone future does not look too bright,

Re: Parrot Tech Support

It seems to be the same software, imo its not a problem running on an Android device :-)

I'm curious, if one buys the 'Power' at present, how does that work with an android device?

Jacko80: You mean that there's a new  FFP release and no mention of it here? And no Android version? No one at the wheel?
