Known Issues

  • Make sure your compass is calibrated before using Azimuth Based Yaw
  • Do not pair to your drone if you're using a Hotspot built into your phone.  AR.Pro uses the WIFI mac address which is different from Hotspot one
  • Do not enable SSID Auto Connect if you are using a Hotspot built into your phone.
