AR.Pro 3 provides for remote control capabilities of Parrot Bebop V1, V2, and numerous other Parrot drones. It exposes many of the same functions as Parrot’s own Freeflight application but implements a unique user experience and allows further customization of your drone.
Key Features (this list is always expanding):
* Parrot Flypad / PS3 / PS4 / NVidia Shield / iPega / MOGA gamepad support
* Intuitive Piloting HUD
* Customized Wi-Fi settings including MAC filtering, WPA2 and hidden SSID
* Input Device Deadzone / Sensitivity tuning
* Combined Yaw / Roll Mixing
* Google / Bing / Here/ MapQuest / arcGIS Map Management
* Directed Flight plans
* Track Me Mode
* Waypoint Assisted flight plans
* MAVLINK TM Autonomous Flight Planner and Monitor
* Firmware Management for Bebop and Disco drones
* Full Sky Controller V1 and V2 Integration
* Remote Media Management (includes Flight Data and PNG files)
* Google Cardboard (VR) Mode
* Head Controlled Camera Panning
* Manual Connection options
* Minidrone including Mambo+MiniCam support
* Experimental Disco support
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTING TO YOUR MAMBO+MINICAM w/ Flypad:
Start AR.Pro 3 and stay in the Discovery activity.
Power on your Flypad and wait for its light to go solid green.
If you go into the AR.Pro 3 Settings activity, you’ll find a header for managing the flypad axes and button mappings.
Return to (or stay in the Discovery activity).
Power on your Mambo+MiniCam
AR.Pro 3 may prompt you asking if you wish to connect to the Mambo via Bluetooth. Answer NO.
After 30-60 seconds the Mambo’s Wi-Fi SSID will show up in your Wi-Fi network list pulldown.
Select the Mambo Wi-Fi network from the list once it appears.
Now back at the Discovery activity, wait 15-30 seconds for AR.Pro 3 to connect to your Mambo’s Wi-Fi.
Once connected (Settings gears no longer turning) you can enter AR.Pro 3’s Piloting activity.
If the video stream doesn’t show immediately (it’s black) it is because the MiniCam went into low power mode.
Launch / Takeoff and you’ll find the video stream starts up (if it is not already visible).
I’ll be working on button / axes mappings when the Flypad is connected directly to the Mambo in the coming weeks. I also plan to add claw and gun support in the near future too. Documentation updates are also underway.
AR.Pro 3 will never offer in-app purchases. Once you have purchased AR.Pro 3 you will benefit from all future enhancements without ever having to buy any additional (addon) features / functions.
