FOR BEBOP 2 BEGINNERS ONLY
 
11:05
Music: http://www.bensound.com I sometimes receive comments in the form of a question relating to an issue someone is having with their Bebop. Often times it relates to something very basic which is just part of a beginner's learning curve. This video was created to help answer some of the questions I receive. Hopefully it will help if you are looking for help. If, after watching this video, you still have a question, please do not hesitate to ask for help - from any of the fine Bebop community members. We love this hobby and enjoy helping those just getting started. Link to Flitetest video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6btEFJJD4_o Link to MrKent.com/bebop http://www.mrkent.com/bebop

DO NOT UPGRADE GARMIN VIRB EDIT! -- But if you already did . . .
 
02:01
Music: http://www.bensound.com http://downloads.informer.com/garmin-virb-edit/versions/ https://www.mrkent.com/bebop/ Virb Edit is what Bebop owners use to place the telemetry data at the bottom of the screen. On June 2nd, 2017 they released an upgrade to the software. At the present time the upgrade will not work. All of the templates can be accessed without a problem. But the templates and GPS data do not connect. A "dead" template appears at the bottom of the screen but never responds to changes in the video.

How To Reset Your Bebop 2 - Step-By-Step

Music: http://www.bensound.com and YouTube From time-to-time we hear of a Bebop drone falling out of the sky or flying away, never to be found again. It may seem like a lot of trouble, but I believe some of these accidents can be avoided by resetting the Bebop to its original factory settings. This video was created to provide simple, step-by-step instructions throughout the entire process, including the test flight.

Every Bebop 2 has two "A" motors and two "B" motors; a pair on the front and a pair on the back. This video describes how to know which motor is an "A" and which is a "B" so you have no need to disassemble them in order to know which to order following an accident, etc.

BEBOP 2 POWER FPV GOGGLES REVIEW

GOGGLES ON AMAZON: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N762E7I?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf It was reported to me that the above goggles were out of stock so I did a search for similar types of goggles. The objective is to avoid having the phone locked up inside that slider that comes with Bebop 2. I am not recommending any of the goggles below but the list is there for your convenience. God bless. https://www.amazon.com/Glasses-Headset-Tsanglight-Controller- Cellphone/dp/B01M1N9JB4/ref=sr_1_41?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522083507&sr=1-41&keywords=cellphone+goggles These may work if you leave the displayed cover off: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074F3H9M6?aaxitk=89Z024TyjTjEGDZOXfWH.w https://www.amazon.com/Headset-Glasses-Android-4-5-6-0- Cellphones/dp/B076QCKKTF/ref=sr_1_52? s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522083989&sr=1-52&keywords=cellphone+goggles Doesn't show straps but says they are supplied: https://www.amazon.com/Virtual-Reality-Smartphone-Foldable- Compliant/dp/B079JP7HQF/ref=sr_1_118? s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522084812&sr=1-118&keywords=cellphone%2Bgoggles&th=1 https://www.amazon.com/Glasses-Smarphones-Tsanglight-Controller-Cellphone/dp/B0778LKP8Y/ref=sr_1_119? s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522084812&sr=1-119&keywords=cellphone+goggles

COMPARING VIDEO QUALITY OF THE BEBOP 2 WITH THE BEBOP 2 POWER
 
04:24
Several people have asked me if I have found much difference between the Bebop 2 and the Bebop 2 Power. I read somewhere Parrot had worked to improve the video quality of the Power model. This video was made by taking both Bebops to the park on the same day and running a "general" test of the video quality. I must admit my old Bebop 2 has slightly, slightly, slightly better quality, but not hardly noticeable. The only real differences I have found are the flying time and the FPV goggles that come with the Power model. Maybe you can see something convincing but I really cannot.

MY FIRST DJI WAYPOINTS 2 PLAN - OR - For the best laugh ever . . Laugh at yourself
 
06:59
I just heard about the DJI Waypoints flight plan after a couple folks asked me to put up a video on it. At that time I had not heard of it yet. But I downloaded the latest version of DJI GO 4 app. (I had to uninstall the old and install the new) It was a real learning experience for me :) I couldn't find the "Start" button for the flight plan. As you will see in the video - I just have to laugh at myself. I do that quite often which keeps me jolly! Enjoy and God bless. MUSIC: Mrkent.com

"SEND PILOTING" IN FREEFLIGHT PRO NOW WORKS
 
06:20
One of FreeFlight Pro's upgrades repaired the "Send Piloting" link in the "My.Parrot" Flight Data section. I missed that and probably some others also may have. This video demonstrates how it works and how to use it. To use it you must first create your own account with Parrot using the FreeFlight Pro app. (It is simple). Then, if you intend to place the telemetry at the bottom of the screen using Garmin Virb Edit you have everything you need to proceed. If you are not familiar with the process I have a video which takes you step-by-step through the process.

CAUTION ADVISED !
 
04:47
This Hobby Mate charger will do a fine job of charging and balancing a LiHV battery. But when I used it to discharge to storage levels I believe it drew more current from the battery than what the screen reported. The heat sync became very hot, even with 1/2 amp discharge rate. As a result it damaged cell number one in my new Bebop Power Battery. I would not recommend this charger to be used with any type of LiPo battery

In tablet mode the telemetry is displayed at the bottom of the screen, while in FPV mode it is an overlay which can be switched on and off. Thanks for watching and God bless.

SUCCESS   MAVIC 2 NOW READY FOR A CANDY DROP
 
08:42
About a month prior to this video I purchased an RCGeek Airdrop. After making some modifications I was able to get it to drop when told to :) Then I decided to use it to drop candy to the children in the neighborhood and at church. I did everything wrong at first but finally was able to achieve the results shown in this video. One problem I faced was overheating motors but when switching from a light-weight material (That worked like an up-side-down parachute) - and using a net material that problem was solved. Also, the strings kept getting tangled until I used some milkshake straws to keep them separated. What is shown in this video only weighed one ounce. The candy in the bag will be held loosely on the day of the candy drop. It weighs a little less than a pound. Previous video prior to using a net: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1mdCi93syo Enjoy and God bless.
