Just waiting for my FPV pack to arrive, (Gonna be a long week) However can anyone tell me if this is the one with the problem battery in the Skycontroller 2 or is it just pot luck what you get as I read elsewhere that it was the Power pack that had the dodgy battery but others say it can be in either pack.

Thanks for the info. That confirms what I have read too. How do you store your batteries? I have read they should be discharged to around 40% but wondering if this is absolutely crucial.

Hey eckydrone200.
I bought the Bebop 2 Fpv pack and it came with the black joysticks and cylinder battery. Problems right from go leading to total failure. New controller is silver sticks and larger rect battery. About a dozen flights now with only one issue and that was losing connection at about 800 meters out, the video i got shows the moment of signal loss, (stopped moving, waited 3 seconds and rth kicked in.) Regained connection while it was returning. It was pretty cool out though, only about 9' C and the drone battery was at about 35%. in all, except for the problem controllers I'm loving this thing.

My FPV pack has been returned to Parrot for replacement.
They told me they were replacing because of the round battery in the skycontroller. My controller had black sticks. I had bad range and bad battery life. I could only get 3-400 meters before signal loss. Parrot told me round battery can cause this.
Curious to see what they send back.

FPV pack bought in December, blue LED, power battery and black stick controller with cylindrical battery. No issues with the controller in range (1.2 km longest so far) or battery life (multiple flights). Perhaps I got lucky...

Hopefully you will never have any problems.
Save your receipt though just in case. They will want to see that in the event you do start having problems.

Yep. Actually, I did have a problem - not with the controller but with the drone, which shut-down mid-flight on three occasions. I exchanged the whole kit. The replacement kit has the same combination of parts, and so far all is working well, but I've not made many flights since the exchange so I'll have to wait and see whether any issues emerge...
