    Hi I've looked for help every where without success.

    I have an AR Drone 2 Elite Addition and have bought a Flight recorder off Ebay.

    I'm trying to get qgroundcontrol working without success, I can connect it to the drone, send it waypoints (and pull them back off the drone), but cannot get it to arm or take off via the laptop. I can see the drone on my map, and can see the artificial horizon move and change if I pick up the drone.

    When I connect, groundcontrol tells me it could not get all the parameters, but I have been told this is normal and to expect it.

    I can send a waypoint via the Freefight app and that works fine , but I still have my dream of sending a pre programmed route from qgroundcontrol outside my wifi range.

    Anyone able to help me?

    QGroundControl versions higher than v2.0 do not work very well with AR Drone 2. I use QGC (QGroundControl) v1.1.0b with no problems. What software are you using now, UgCS for AR Drone 2?
