    Hi! Link doesn’t work… Link work but there isn’t any update for the follow me function… Bonjour, le lien ne fonctionne pas… Le lien fonctionne mais il n’y a pas de mise à jour pour la fonction follow me…

  • cosmin

    this is not fair! only for bb2?!?! why parrot, why?

    • Pascal Prn

      I guess because Bebop 2 has a better GPS than the Bebop 1 around 5m precision.

      • Derek Wright

        I have found GPS on Bebop 1 to work well with Flight Plan with great acuracy so I dont see this being a valid reason. Though I am sure Parrot will use it to justify.

    • Derek Wright

      They have our money and now to get additional facilities they probably think we will spend more on upgrading to Bebop 2.
      I will now think twice before dealing with Parrot again. If you wish to purchase items they are quick to respond, but support seems very hard to come by

  • Jonathan Kreutzer

    any chance of coming out for google play users.

  • Bruno Barbosa

    What does the drone when it meets an obstacle?

  • Alan Nadjarian

    When will it become available to Android users?

  • http://johnblackmore.com John Blackmore

    Very disappointing that this hasn’t been enabled for Bebop 1, it has practically the same hardware inside!

    • Derek Wright

      I agree with your comments John. Perhaps if enough of us complain they may address the issue. We already suffer with reduced battery times. Hopefully they read these posts

      • John Barkley

        I bought the Bebop 1 because, even before it’s launch, it was being marketed as though it would have the ‘Follow Me’ ability. After purchasing it I found that ‘Follow Me’ was yet to be implemented and I have been waiting all this time since for it to be so and meantime, seeing the launch of the Bebop 2 as well, that, had I been pre-informed correctly about the evolution of the Bebop, I could have waited for and bought instead. It feels like a kick in teeth from Parrot, that it now transpires that it will only be functional on the Bebop 2, so what a waste of money on my part. I also bought Flower Powers to monitor the health of my Bonsais, only to find that there was no profile for a Bonsai and despite numerous requests for a care profile, I have been ignored by Parrot. So I have no confidence in Parrot listening to us and enabling it on the Bebop 1! I do think that there is a case for the mis-marketing and mis-selling of the Bebop 1 by Parrot though. What do you think?

        • Derek Wright

          Agree entirely, After sales support seems poor with this company, Its not as though a part exchange to upgrade is an option with this equipment. Hopefully Parrot read these posts and take notice

          • Neil Hodgson

            I agree. This is basically a software issue so why not let all Bepop users enjoy it? Many of us have supported the growth of Parrot by early investment into the brand and are now penalised by not being given access to the developments of that brand. Very poor service from Parrot

  • Derek Wright

    It seems Parrot has little regard for those of us that paid a lot of money for the first version of Bebop. If flightplan works well on it. (which it does) why are we being overlooked on this one. Seems like we need to spend a lot more if we want this feature. It will teach me to wait for updates before buying Parrot items again.
    (Or look elswhere).

      • Jared Carlson

        Same here. It’s a bit of a stretch to suggest the hardware in the 2 is necessary to support Follow Me. Longer battery lives and slight larger rotors shouldn’t have much to do with Follow Me. I, too, was an earlier purchaser of the original Bebop (having bought 2 AR.Drones along the way) hoping for Follow Me to be enabled. Like others have noted in other fora, absent some quick and convincing corporate turnaround, this will be my last Parrot. DJI here I come.

    Where can i find the follow me function? I have updated bb2 to v4 and have the newest version of freeflight pro v4.1.14. Ipad air2. No sign of the new functions.

    • jurgen kramer

      This weekend I have tested the new software. Freeflight 4.1.14 and firmware 4.0.0 in my BB2. First with only my Ipad air 2. No bugs found so far but still no sign of “follow me” even not a message where to buy (it is in-app purchase like the flight plan). After that I put the Ipad in my SC1. It was shocking. Camera is only facing down. I can put it up but it is going crazy. Flying is no problem except for the landing where it starts to spin when coming down, but the SC1 has become useless. In the compatibility of hardware in the itunes store, only the SC2 is mentioned. Is the new freeflight software not compatible anymore with SC1? Do I need to downgrade the software? Do I also need to downgrade the firmware? Parrot please help!

  • Christopher Kaiser

    what ios devices will it work on?

  • Romeo

    Why follow me function can not support Android Phone? I’m using Samsung S7 and support Barometer senor. Would u develope apps to support? tks

  • Michael Murray

    I was going to buy one, but after I saw that they charge for the app, and that the app does not work or the “Follow Me” does not work, no way. Appreciate everyone taling the time to inform others about this situation, thank you all.

  • Jason Brown

    What if the battery goes dead? Will it return before it does? I know if I’m doing whatever I’ll lose track of time and battery use.

  • seansaunders

    Spends $1000+ on drone. Has to pay $20 to unlock software functions. Real smart move Parrot. Thankfully there are lots of 3rd party apps which are much cheaper and have the same (if not more) functionality.

  • Caeden

    Is there some hidden tax I’m not seeing? I have $20 on my iTunes and it says “insufficient fund” when I hit buy.

  • enzomedici

    Charging the app is pretty lame. This should be standard and included. I will have to pass on buying the Bebob 2 given this fact and the awful reviews of the software in general.
