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 2.4.19
Still crashes on iPad
This update has fixed the iCloud photos crashing issue on my iPhone, but it still has problems on my iPad:
Sometimes when you enter pilot mode or end a recording via USB or iPad, the app crashes. This is not good when the drone is in the air as it lands itself! I've only experienced this on my iPad Air 2, works ok on my iPhone 6.
Keep trying Parrot, nearly there!
No video, ground flights only
The April 2015 version of this app no longer crashes on my iPad2 (waited months to run it) but drone flights are limited to about 4 metres/yards above ground. Also I recored about 10 short videos (with loads of space in the iPad memory) and only the first one was actually stored so a morning's filming was lost. Not yet enjoying this Parrot drone and have actually gone back to flying my old one which cost one sixth of the price whilst I await the next app version. Wouldn't buy another Parrot of any type.
Please update this app, I have can never get any of my flights to be shown in the ar drone academy, it is really annoying as I want to see where and which flights I did. Also can you make it show a live status of the drone where it says the emergency messages, have it saying "system normal" just so that we as the pilots can see it is working fine.
PLEASE DO THESE KEY TWO THINGS AND I WILL GIVE 5 STARS
