Has anyone tried the Anbee coposite props.  Composite carbon/plastic sounds like a good idea.  I lost one OEM prop - the hub sheared off - so tempted to try Anbee.

Are you considering to introduce 4rth gear or a dedicate button to get Swing into full horizontal mode?   Still the speed is not enough (with 45 degrees) and would be usefull to change the angle of attack.   Your thoughts?

I'm used to 20+ minutes of battery especially when using Flight Plan.  Just recently, I recieved the FPV pack for my birthday and I'm getting flights averaging around 7 minutes.  I'm wondering if the software is reporting the remaining battery % incorrectly or should I be replacing the battery.   I've had the Bebop2 for one year now and am using the battery that came with it.

I've been flying with a Motorola Moto x2 hooked to the SC2, and the screen is pretty small for my eyes. (Also, the Moto messes up badly when I fly with just the phone, and it'd be nice to have a phone that works if I ever don't want to use the SC.)  I'm looking to get a small tablet, and thinking I should maybe go to an Apple device so I can use Michelle Vagnetti's good-looking apps. I'd like to ask all here for their recommendations on what's good, what's bad, and what's affordable. Thanks in advance for any constructive suggestions.

Once the controls are reconfigured using the phone app, does the phone have to be connected for those changes to work. I prefer flying with the flypad only, without the phone being connected.

Hi there l. my bebop 2 sensor (the camera under the bebop) doesn't see the objects. Even if I try to put my hand under my bebop after pushing the take off button it wouldn't see it   Last time it started bouncing up and down and I managed to remove the battery to turn it off. Another problem is the rth. When I set it to any value it will come back only after 30 seconds. Another issue is that it wouldn't reset in manual way. So strange...Could you please help me? I send all my crashes to you whenever they happen. Thank you in advance.

Dear frequent flyers,     Got a Bebop the other day. Flown 20+ times and love it. But... lately it crashes 2 times by flying against something because I lost the signal. More specifically it looses connection for some reason, auto activates the 'return home' function as expected, but even when it's well in range ( < 1m for instance), sky controller "says no". They can't seem to reconnect, and because of offsets in remembering it's start position it flies against something while landing...   I had 2 cases: 1. Flight plan route. Flies away very far, disconnects returns from route, and when surely in range led indicator stays red, can't prevent it crashing. Replaced 1 motor (€80 for a set of motors)   2. I fly Bebop away, just up to be honest like 70 meters above myself. Skycontroller becomes unresponsive, starts returning home, again flies against some silly bushes right in front of me, and crashes while looking at it hopelessly...   Yes I ensure my phone is in airplane mode. Whats frustrates me, bebop is well in range but fails in reconnecting.   Checklist: - Bebop 2 + SC2 - Latest firmware in both - Switched Airplane mode on (iPhone SE) before starting - Batteries charged

Hey Parrot Community,   Just wondering if anyone has any tips for getting more birds eye view photos as the 180 degree front mounted lens make it very hard to get a decent one. The best I have got so far is cropping the small downwards facing part of a dng.    Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi, I received my Mki9200 unit, installed it in my car, everything was working flawlessly. Then I decided to upgrade the firmware to the latest I found online (v. 2.20). Immediately after that I got a message - hardware failure. The vendor explained to me that my unit was 3.10 version (?) so I probably did something very silly. Anyway, is there any way to save my unit now? I always get the same message - hardware failure, please reboot your kit. Thank you for your help.

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this question, but I going to bet one of the well-informed forum members here has a better answer.   Am I correct in thinking that, in order to take (and use) high-res still images with the Bbp, I got to start paying Adobe Software 20 bucks a month forever?   That sounds like a raw deal to me.

Very impressed with the device. However, is it possible to dial a number via voice recognition by just saying the number. I don't want to have to add every business I may call into my contacts. With such good voice recognition I am sure it could recognise the numbers 0 to 9. Any plans??

My Drone worked fine at first... But after a few flights, it dropped like a ***** and flashed on my screen "Control link not available" and it's been doing the same thing after a few minutes of flight time ever since. YES, I CHECKED! it's not my device that is disconnecting from the parrot but router just shuts off (i checked using another device). The router seems to shut off and crash. I know that when that happens the drone is supposed to hover but this one does not. What do I do? please reply Trevor

Hi all. Since I can't find a post/thread for reporting bugs with the latest FFP updates, I thought I will post my bug report here. Ok so, I have a Google Pixel with the latest Android Version (7.2 if I remember correctly) and a Disco with firmware 1.3. The bug is that when I record video and the stopwatch/counter shows how long you have been recording for works for as long as I have connection. However, upon connection loss and in turn RTH, this timer resets to 0:00 and does not count up until I land. I was not experiencing this bug with any other version of FFP.   Any ideas as to why or a fix?
