What happens when the drone reaches the limit of the Geofence?
Geofence is a virtual barrier that restricts the drone from flying out of a designated zone set up by the pilot via the FreeFlight Pro app.
When the Parrot Disco reaches the limit of the Geofence, Return-to-Home is triggered and the drone automatically navigates back to the starting point. Once there, the Parrot Disco initiates stand-by loitering mode and begins circling overhead.
It is then possible to retake control of the drone and continue flying within the fixed Geofence limits.
3 settings are available for the Geofence :
Maximum distance : from 200m to 2 km, the drone can't go beyond that distance and goes back on Return To Home mode.
Maximum altitude : from 50 to 150 m, the drone won't go above that altitude.
Minimum altitude : from 5 to 50m, the drone won't go under that altitude.
Once the drone has reached the altitude limit defined by the Geofence it will:
Won't go over the defined maximum altitude limit
Not fly under the lowest altitude limit that has been set
In this particular case, the Return to Home option is not engaged.
To activate GEOFENCE:
1. Open FreeFlight Pro and go to FLY & FILM >Setting>Position.
