Hi there,

I just purchased a used bebop parrot drone with the skyController remote.
When I brought it home it turned on and worked as it should.
I installed the free flight 3 to enable the use of my phone during flight.
It required an update for both the drone and the controller which I did and now nothing will work.
I can see the controller on the app but not the drone.
I can see the drone and controller on my wifi but not the app
I've tried resetting the drone, clearing the chache and data on the app and starting from scratch and no luck.
I've looked through forums, videos and on the parrot site and im am totally at a loss as to what I can do.
I noticed the versions for the drone and the controller are 2 different numbers is this normal.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I got a small sample before the updates of the drone and I loved it and now it's basically useless cause I don't know how to fix the problem
Thanks for your time.

Hi

First of all, it is all OK.

You dont need a SC to control the drone.
Phone—> drone is OK too.
SC is a nice convenience. Young folks love phone to drone directly.
You can test it easily.

for SC Connections:
I use “Freeflight Pro“ , the Original Parrot application for Bebop 1/2.
It is available for iOS. I think it is available for Android too (the Bebop is Android! )
If you have this platform (apple) please use it.
The Bebop 1 can be reset by pressing the Power button for 10 seconds continuously.
I have the Skycontroller 2.
Bebop version is 4.0.6 (latest).
Skycontroller 2 version is 1.0.9

1) start the controller , already attached to the phone via usb cable.
it will blink red.
2) start the bebop and check for Wifi connections, specially the unsecure connection. Bebop_XXXX
and connect to it. Make it a preferred connection. Auto-Login is encouraged.

The Skycontroller 2 should turn to “green” and remain so. when connected To the drone.

Do Not set a password to the Bebop connection (wifi) right away.
It was meant for Bebop 2.

these steps should work with Bebop 2 too.
