FreeflightMini needs update // Cant update the simulated mambo drone

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


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


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


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=
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?


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


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?


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.
