What can I do with this Skycontroller?
The two handed joystick controls give you a more realistic flying experience when you pair this Skycontroller to your Parrot Bebop drone. It operates at the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wireless frequencies with the operating range boosted from 250m to an impressive 2000m* due to the built-in range extender. The Skycontroller also has status LEDs that tell you the Wi-Fi signal and battery life of both the Skycontroller itself and the drone. This makes it really easy to monitor when you have a poor Wi-Fi signal or low battery, ensuring that disastrous events don’t occur.

The dedicated buttons on the Skycontroller make it easier to control not only the flight of the drone but the angle of the camera too, with buttons such as photo/video capture, camera angle and return home. Additionally there is a dock at the centre of the Skycontroller for a smartphone or tablet up to 10.6 inches in size, which when used with the FreeFlight 3 app allows you to see the camera’s view so you can line up the perfect shot.

Can I connect FPV glasses to the Skycontroller?
FPV (first-person view) glasses/googles can be used with the Skycontroller through the HDMI slot. Currently the only FPV glasses that can be used with it are the Sony FPV and Zeiss Cinemizer (with more being compatible in the future). Once connected to the Skycontroller you get the live video stream, with telemetry information such as distance and altitude displayed straight to the glasses. A truly immersive flying experience is revealed once you have linked your FPV glasses to the Skycontroller.
