Cannot Control

I can get connected to my drone however no options are available for me to fly as with any other device. I can't take off, update, or any basic functions.

Random disconnects

App randomly disconnected like 10 meters in front of me and flew away into a neighborhood and hit a pole, I really would like to fly my AR Drone 2 so please update the app. Thanks

Needs more robust come link management & control

Tried the app a few times yesterday... altitude up to 25 meters and distance out to about 30 yards. Link was not altogether stable, and on one flight, the app locked-up the cmd link restart function... had to regain control from my WinPhone using AR Drone remote. Whew! Doesn't seem to reliably turn on the on-board recording, and also seems to want to record the transmitted video onto my Surface-3. This works about 50% of the time. Acquiring the WiFi address of the drone is also quirky..needs a native English speaker to correct the code bugs I reckon. Lastly, the sharing and media mgt capabilities are very basic, compared to the iPAD version. Integrate with Microsoft Cloud functions and this is a winner-winner! Lastly, the control loop, when its working to spec, is nicely responsive with the Intel I5 powered Surface-3....way smother and quicker than with the iPAD. Looking forward to the next release!

Glad to see this on Windows 8!

It's exciting that more developers are understanding that Windows 8 is a great platform and a lot of people actually do use it! I love using this with my Surface Pro 3, as the larger screen makes the video flight much more satisfying than on the iPad. And, that I seem to have better WiFi distance with my Surface too! Only thing missing here is the GPS control that's on the iPad app, and video recording. Plus I hope they bring out the AR.FreeFlight 3 soon for my new Mini drones!

It works

It works as one would expect. It is truly sad it took so long considering this is not a complicated app. Now will they keep it up-to-date and add features that are already on iPad? Time will tell

Started great, then stopped

Using this on my Surface RT, the app started out great flying my a.r.drone. Then all of a sudden the app will no longer recognize when the tablet is connected to the drones WiFi which makes it useless.

Review so far with Surface Pro

- Works great with touch-screen thumb-sticks and accelerometers. - Works with Xbox controller. Both thumb sticks work properly in their appropriate directions. However, the left thumb stick always applies 100% acceleration, no matter how gently you push the stick. Right thumb stick is analog. Applies % of acceleration depending on how much you push the stick. It appears that a quick update to the left thumb-stick is all that is needed. - D-pad on Xbox controller will flip drone: up=front flip, back=backflip, right=flip to the right, left= flip to the left. No need to change settings to get different flips=cool combos. - Xbox controller (both wireless and wired) must be plugged in AFTER takeoff, otherwise it won't takeoff no matter what. For Wireless controller: have controller on but don't have wireless adapter plugged into USB port yet. Start up the drone. Once drone takes off, quickly plug in wireless adapter. - Didn't test out the keyboard yet. Will report back later.

Finally!!!!!!!

A good start, flying on my Surface RT. Only takes Still pictures to tablet. Would be nice to save streamed video to tablet. Please keep updating. Hopefully a WP8 app soon! :-)

Not bad, but...

Please at least finish the app. I know that "director mode" is not that great of feature due to the weak camera situation (compared to the Bebop), but finish and maintain the app, PLEASE!!
