DIRECTOR MODE LAUNCH
Launch automatic movements to get stabilized and smooth trajectories. Panorama, travellings, crane and static point are available and you can change the speed during the movements to adjust it to your needs
Front camera settings such as white balance, saturation and exposure can be adjusted to scene you want to shoot
Post production options developed especially for the AR.Drone 2.0 videos are available to stabilize the video on your iDevice. Choose the rate of correction that fits and it creates a new additional version of the video directly visible from the app. It is also stored into the Camera Roll.
Your video is too long? Some parts are not of interest? Thanks to the sequence edition option you can cut some parts of your video to select only the ones you want and create a new video with only the selected sequences.
FLIGHT RECORDER COMPATIBILITY
To use all the features linked to the Flight Recorder, you need to plug it above the battery. It is extremely important that the Flight Recorder is exactly just above the battery and not elsewhere to get the best of it. Please check our videos on www.parrot.com
A new piloting mode has been developed. When you click on the earth icon on top right corner of the piloting interface, a map appears on the screen. This is the map around your location. Choose a point on the map, set the speed, set the altitude and click “GO”. The AR.Drone 2.0 starts its flight to get to this point. The AR.Drone 2.0 stays within the Wi-Fi range from your iDevice.
The “Return Home” functionality helps to get his AR.Drone 2.0 back to the take-off location automatically.
Review in 3D all your flights made with the Flight Recorder connected to your AR.Drone 2.0 on the AR.Drone Academy map.
Get a better stabilization for the static point when you fly in high altitudes thanks to the GPS positioning of the Flight Recorder.
The Flight Recorder registers more than 350 different flight data.
Stuck in a tree? Just try the “Rescue mode” directly from the piloting interface to try to unblock the AR.Drone 2.0 from the branches. Even if it is upside down, the propellers will spin so you have new possibilities to make an action while your AR.Drone is not reachable.
This app is for iOS 6 and higher.
Enjoy your flights
What's New in Version 2.4.12
iOS 7 compatibility, Flight Recorder Firmware update
Over 100hr flight time
I have used this app on my iPad and iPhone, plus my galaxy s4 . The app has some improvements that could be made however it is always improving. I love my drone 2.0 I have over 100 hrs flight time. I have 4 batteries and love to bring it to local parks to fly. The app allows early drone flyers to really hone there skills before advancing and going full power and speed with the drone. Great for kids and adults of all ages. I used my drone for some great aerial photography, I am able to get angles and locations that you just can't get another way. The perspective you can get with just a little altitude. I have had my drove at just over 60 meters high using a range extender of coarse. I do wish that possible with the next version of the drone they have some kind of small external antenna, or even a connector for an optional antenna.
Useful app but needs improvement
It works fine on my iPhone and iPad under IOS 6 (I haven't upgraded to 7). Manual flight modes work but have limited range and virtually no range in a WiFi congested area - maybe 50 feet in my neighborhood. That said, I've experienced much greater range - several hundred feet - outside of the city.
While I have the Flight Recorder, I find the map resolution of FreeFlight too low and the overall features of the map too limiting. There needs to be an ability to plan an antonymous mission rather than set up a new waypoint while flying each time you want to move the drone to a new location. I find that taking my eye off of the drone to mess with setting up a new waypoint is a major distraction. If Parrot would allow you to set multiple waypoints before flight then press "Go" to move from one waypoint to another, that would be the one update that would push my review to four or five stars.
This has been an essential app if you own the Parrot 2.0. It no longer works for me, since I've upgraded to the latest iOS eight. I really need a way to make this work, and I haven't found one available. It seems that Parrot is mainly concerned with their latest drone models and toys, and are too busy to take care of their loyal customers. I can no longer fly my AR2.0, after investing in extended batteries, propellers, gears, shafts and the tool kit ... I have upgraded to the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus, but still need to be able to operate the Parrot AR 2.0 (for my son).
