Hi everyone,

First time posting on any type of forum!

I gave myself a Bebop 2 power for xmas and have had a lot of fun using it. However I am having 2 issues that I can't seem to find a solution for on websites or via youtube:

  1. My Sky Controller constantly loses wifi signal when the drone reaches circa 700m. I have put the wifi settings onto 'manual' and chosen a frequency that isn't being used by nearby wifi networks and have clear line of sight (I am at a beach that is about 2km long). I am using my iphone 7 as the screen.
  2. I cannot seem to figure out how to 'focus' my FPV glasses with my iphone 7 inside the goggles. I line up the green/red crosses but still can't seem to get focus i.e. the screen is blurry.

If anyone has any ideas that would be AMAZING!

Cheers,

Ryan

Most common problem is not properly pulling on rubber band to completly open/extend glasses....i Hope that thats the only problem....grab glasses with one hand,grab rubber band with other hand and really pull to open/extend glasses,start freeflight pro,go to fpv screen,use buttons on top of glasses to adjust sight,go to setting/fpv and hit calibrate to adjust lines

Thanks for the reply. I do indeed have the new sc2 with a square battery.

Any other suggestions? Would it be prudent to contact parrot directly is that done via email if so does anyone have the correct email address?

Hi everyone,

Do you have it in Airplane Mode? If not then this will increase the range by quite a bit.

Maybe it's not defective I was at a nature preserve last we in Plano, TX and I flew the Bebop further then I ever have, 1000 meters before the video got choppy. I'm looking around for new places to fly around my area. Will try the FPV goggles next.
