Update, new app crash's more often than before. I took it for a test flight had it only about 4 feet off the ground and was moving it forward in a straight line when all of the sudden the app crashed and force closed. The drone continued to move forward for about 500 feet before smacking dead on into a tree drunk.
I had a horrible face as I watch the drone fly uncontrollably into the tree trunk and pieces scatter off in all directions. The first thing that came to my mind was that the drone was completely totaled and there probably was nothing that could be salvaged.
As I sluggishly walked to the crash site to pick up the mangled mess of what was once an AR.Drone 2, I was amazed to find that it was still fully in tact. The top foam had come off and the battery flew out of the center compartment (found about 20 feet from the drone) however it seemed to still be in good working condition and after putting the battery back in place it did in fact fly without issue.
My drone is now grounded until Parrot fixes the app. Who knows how long this will be since we have had issues with the app crashing since it was released (less frequently however). Who does parrot have coding this app for them? Do they not debug their software before releasing it?
let this be a WARNING to anyone with an iOS device, when iOS 6 comes is released on wednesday, do not upgrade your iOS devices if you want to continue using your Drone.
