Re: FW 1.0.5 : Backup your media before updating, compulsory update to get the next to come

Hi,
@vendornet, if this is possible you can be assured that our teams are working on it. There might be a technical question of hardware/software processing power that justifies these settings.

Thanks for the info. Do you plan to implement 1080p video recording with 720p streaming?

Hi,

the firmware version 1.1.0 allow you to record in 1080p and using FPV 480p or record in 720p and having a FPV streaming in 720p. To choose the settings, use FreeFlight Pro 4.1.11 available on iOS (coming for Android soon).

Great news!

 

Can we record 1080p and still use the FPV mode?

Re: FW 1.0.5 : Backup your media before updating, compulsory update to get the next to come

Hi all,
iOS users can download FreeFlight Pro 4.1.11 which brings 2 firmwares for Parrot Disco.

  • Firmware Parrot Disco version 1.1.0
  • Firmware Skycontroller 2 version 1.0.3

There is no new features for Bebop Drone and Bebop 2 users - yet.

 

Firwmare 1.1.0 for Parrot Disco brings the video recording1080p. The version 1.0.3 on Skycontroller 2 corrects some bugs.
Note that you need to have firmware version 1.0.5 installed in your Parrot disco. If you had the firmware version 1.0.3, FreeFlight Pro app will install the firmware version 1.0.5 before installing the version 1.1.0 (the whole process may take 8 to 10 minutes).

For Android users, please note that 1080p recording is also available if the Parrot Disco is updated to 1.1.0 but the Android app has not yet all the options to change video settings (1080p recording will be enabled by default when not flying in FPV mode, in FPV mode 720p recording is used for both apps).
Thank you

Re: FW 1.0.5 : Backup your media before updating

Hi All,
The change on FW 1.0.5 is to fix some bugs and optimize the file system for further improvements to come. As warned before the update to the firmware 1.0.5 erases the memroy of the drone. that is why the app has been updated to have the ability to warn you before proceeding.
