Parrot has developed 3 new apps which now replace FreeFlight 3.
- FreeFlight Pro now enables you to fly Parrot Bebop drones, Parrot Bebop 2 and Parrot Disco.
- FreeFlight Mini enables you to fly the Parrot Minidrones Airborne Cargo, Airborne Night, Parrot Hydrofoil, Parrot Rolling Spider, Parrot Mambo and Swing.
- FreeFlight Jumping, finally, enables you to pilot Jumping Sumo, Jumping Race and Jumping Night.
Why this change? Simply so that each drone and Minidrone category has its own dedicated app. For you, it’s fewer updates and an interface much better adapted to your product.
Let’s now see all the improvements that these 3 new apps will offer you in detail!
