FreeFlightmini wants to update my sphinx simulated mambo drone but when i try to update it via the app it doesnt show any progress.
So i assume it doesnt work that way or at all?
is there a way how i can connect my simulated mambo drone with Freeflightmini without updating it? Or how can i update it


#2

You can’t update the simulated firmware with FreeFlight.
What version is your simulated Mambo drone?


#3

according to FreeFlightmini it is 3.0.6.
And it wants to update it to 3.0.17


#4

To make sure that you use the latest drone firmware, you can always change the firmware URL in your command line:
sphinx /opt/parrot-sphinx/usr/share/sphinx/drones/mambo.drone::firmware=http://plf.parrot.com/sphinx/firmwares/delos/v3_pc/3.0.17/images/delos-v3_pc.ext2.zip
This should force the download of 3.0.17.

Thank you now i can connect with it
Another Question:
Can i videostream with the mambo drone?


#6

The model of a mambo does not contain a camera, so there is no video stream.


#7

But i can upgrade the real drone with camera via the connector block. So can i receive this video stream?
Mambo also contains a vertikal camera which data is fully accessible right?


#8

Even though this connector exists with a real drone, sphinx does not simulate it. The vertical camera can be visualized in Gazebo in the Window > Topic Visualization menu.
