We’re excited to announce a new Sky Pilot app update is now available for download, version 1.02!
In the weeks since our first shipments of the Flytrex Sky, we’ve been working hard to make changes and tweak our apps in accordance with customer feedback. One of the biggest changes has been to make the Sky drone calibrating process much simpler and faster, enabling this to be done entirely using the Pilot App rather than requiring one to connect via a USB cable and install additional 3rd party tools on your PC.
As the holiday season approaches, we wanted to take this opportunity and update you guys with the latest news about our products. 2015 has been a busy year for us and we've been preparing the infrastructure to scale up and improve our service across the board. As we quickly approach the new year you will start seeing many changes arriving!
Although our new Flytrex Live 3G Plus was released a few weeks ago and already used daily by many Flytrex pilots, we've been running behind on our blog updates and did not fully explain the appreciable updates we made with our newest Plus model.
Since we we’ve found that we still get a lot of questions about the varieties between the two models, we decided upon a benchmark blog post to cover all of the new changes and features from the previous version that would be helpful for many customers - and those looking to get the new Live Plus.
It was only a few months ago that we introduced our newest product, the Flytrex Sky Drone - the world’s first internet connected drone, also capable of delivering items and operate over the cloud, complete with our new Pilot and Messenger apps. For those not familiar with the Flytrex Sky, be sure to watch our promo video, demonstrating the Sky delivery capabilities and vision.
Over the past couple of months our team have been working hard getting the Sky ready to ship to customers and we’ve implemented many improvements to the Sky setup that makes it much more robust and powerful product in many ways. We believe that these changes make for an even better drone, and an overall user experience, that we’re excited to share with you!

A few weeks ago we announced our new Flytrex Sky drone and released this Sky promo video, demonstrating the Sky delivery capabilities and vision. Since its release we’ve been getting plenty of questions from users asking about the delivery process and how it actually works.
With this post I will give an in-depth review how the new Flytrex Messenger app enables straightforward, short-range, deliveries together with our Sky drone and also give a few first details about our Environmental Awareness technology that will help making drone delivery safer and easier.

Flytrex Live then automatically searchs the APN list and use the correct settings for your mobile network. This simplifies Flytrex Live initial setup and helps us keeps things simple.
