Drone Station is a Mac OS X compatible application for remote control of the Parrot AR.Drone 1.0 quadricopter over a WiFi connection. Drone Station allows you to use a variety of commonly available joysticks, gamepads, and controllers to control your drone.
It may be able to fly the AR.Drone 2.0, but there will be no video. We are working on an update to resolve this, but it is not going well. We are unsure if we will be able to make it work at this time.
NOTE: Please disconnect all other networks or this app will not work. Unless your network class is something different than 192.168.1.X you must disconnect all other interfaces. If you don't, you can't connect to the drone. Easy step by step instructions are in the quick reference guide.Summary of features
