I've ordered xiomi amplifier , I understand that it might be connected to the phone , but any chance to connect it to the SC2 as well ?

 

thanks


SC should give you a bit more range than that - you're in 'USA' regional mode, right? You tested in an area without buildings/wifi interference?

Re: Sky Controller 2 with Wifi Extender

Parrot told me the Sky Controller 2 is basiclly an extender and that using it with another in close range can damage the SC2.

 

Also, I got the Xiaomi-Mini-Mi-WIFI-Router and was not impressed....got about 750m  On another note that was on a phone that had to be replaced.

 

But on that same phone, I got out to just over 2 miles using my TOTOLINK extender and sat dish.   I could have went farther but did not want to push it due to terrain.   Check this guy out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3IXuzFlaEo

So...its a little laggy but does the job.  Much better than having your fingers over the screen and allowing for multiple directions concurrently (exp: up while turning)

Cool info...thanks!  I did not know these were compatible because it does not mention it on their website.  After reading your response, I did see people using the Flypad on Youtube.   I am going to pick one up today w/ great savings! Again, thanks! :-)

Re: Sky Controller 2 with Wifi Extender

The SC2 should give you pretty good range even without the extender (though probably not as far as your Totolink!).

 

That said, if you're looking for a tactile way to fly, the Parrot Flypad is inexpensive, well made, has a phone holder, and works well with the Bebop via FreeFlight Pro.  And you can use it with your existing extender.

Sky Controller 2 with Wifi Extender

Does anyone know if the Sky Controller 2 can connect to a wifi extender?  I am getting good range with my TOTOLINK extender...but am tired of using my phone screen as the controller.
