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.
After listening to user reports on the calibration process, we decided to make this procedure entirely over 3G, making calibration an easy process that can be done entirely from your Flytrex Pilot App. While the initial procedure required connecting your Sky via USB to your desktop, the new process is much simpler and can be done quickly and wirelessly.
Below are easy instructions how to calibrate your Sky drone using the new Sky Pilot app update.
Step 1: Once the drone is connected to the app, press and hold the calibration button on the Pilot App for two seconds. The new Calibrate button is marked below in red.
Step 2: Select the calibration type you wish to perform.
Step 3: If performing compass calibration, rotate your drone in order to fully calibrate the drone by following the instructions on the screen.
Step 4: If performing accelerometer calibration, place the aircraft in the six different configurations noted on the screen in order to finish the calibration.
After successfully calibrating your drone, you now have the ability to view your last Sky calibration actions inside the Maintenance report on your Flytrex Account Settings section. Simply enter your Account Settings, click the “Devices” button from the left-side toolbar. Once there, click “Manage” on your Sky drone.
In the Maintenance report, you’ll be able to view the date of your last successful compass and accelerometer calibrations or notices requiring your attention, as well as details about any available firmware updates. If you haven’t yet calibrated your drone, it will let you know here that you should do so before flying. This report will give you all the necessary tools that you need in order to competently manage your drone.
The new Pilot App update includes several additional nice improvements with UI improvements, new full-screen display during flight and more.
That’s all there is to it! We’re looking forward to you getting started on your new Flytrex Sky!
