All of a sudden my parrot night drone cannot take off without flipping immedatly over. Is there a correction for this or do I need to send it in for service?
I solved the problem myself. The props were not properly aligned. I did not realize this when one of them fell off after running into some branches on a tree. When I replaced it. I reversed the position. After reviewing the proper alignment on line it corrected the problem. Now it works perfectly!
I just got the swat airborne drone and have taken it for a few flights. I take multiple pictues during each one but after the flight it asks me if I want to transfer the latest photo that I took and that is the only photo that it lets me keep. If I take 20 pictures during the flight why am I not able to keep or even see all 20 of them after the flight?
You can download all the photos taken with your Minidrone.
There is 2 ways to copy pictures from the Airborne : with USB (the faster ways) or with FreeFlight 3.
With FreeFlight 3
Then you can select the image you want to transfer and click transfer.
After copying the pictures into your device's memory, FreeFlight 3 will ask you if you want to keep the image inside the internal memory or erase it .
Then you can access to the pictures in Gallery on your device and with freeFlight 3.
Ok I got a Airborne Night Drone for Christmas. I have downloaded the Freeflight 3 app went through the registration blah blah blah. When I try to connect to my drone I get "for security purposes you will have to update your Airborne Night before piloting it. Go to http://www.parrot.com/support for more information.
I have tried to do the update on my phone, I tried to update it via the computer. I can't get anything to do ANYTHING! Can someone give me any ideas?
FreeFlight 3 can detect that the firmware version of your MiniDrone is outdated, and will oblige you to update to have the latest features or corrections (see release notes) to improve reliability of control.
Here, the latest firmware version is 2.1.7 .
If it is already installed on you Minidrone Airborne then try to reset the Minidrone by pressing the On/OFF button for 10 seconds.
There is 2 methods to update
Drag and drop the update file into the MiniDrone as though it were a USB Flash drive. The update file must be placed at the root of the MiniDrone and not in a folder.
When I press the camera icon, it takes a photo from the bottom camera next to the ultrasonic rangefinder.
I notice that there is something that looks like a tiny camera lens in between the two headlights. Can I take photos from this instead?
I am wondering if anyone knows how to solve the issue of a red bar across the flight control app when it is not associated with low battery life. I had a run in with the christmas tree and got tensil stuck under a prop, and a few flights later this nameless red bar appeared. It led me to find the tensil, thankfully, but I cannot get the red bar on the screen to go away. Any ideas?
I have tried:
A temporal fix is flying with the sound disabled so that the beeping doesn't drive me mad, but the problem with this is you lose the low battery audio queue, which is quite useful.
Thanks for your concern and happy holidays to everybody
I spoke with Cory over at Support and Parrot knows this is an issue and is working to resolve it. The red bar is an issue with the app or the device, and not the drone itself. A future update to either the app or drone firmware should resolve it.
