So I got this brand new skycontroller 2 and it seems to have some problems. It is very inconsistent. Most of the times I turn it on it will have a solid red light and goes off in about 15 seconds. On the app it says that it has 0% battery but when I plug it it displays a green light which means it is fully charged. After a few tries it starts to work but if I turn it off it will go back to the same issue. Any ideas on how to fix?
Thanks

I received the Bebop 2 w/ Skycontroller for Christmas and haven't had any issues so far. Granted I've only used it a few times, but very pleased with the performance.

please post on here when you get new controller..which battery is in it ,
Is it because of the battery? My controller uses a rectangular battery and I’ve seen others having cylinders. Do they make a difference?

Apparently! The ones with the tubuular batteries are defective and have lots of issues. Including range, GPS, and charging.
couldn't of said it better....too many post on internet about this controller....hopefully parrot resolves this problem..

I Have bought FPV on boxing day and have the same problems, the battery of the SC -2 discharge at the same rate than the drone and the max range i was able to reach was approx 700 m with wifi off and airplane mode on on the phone.

After sending an email to Parrot without answer, i've called Parrot Support and after a few test, it look like they will be replacing the skycontroller. not confirmed yet but in the process.
