A new and immersive flying experience

Until now, an immersive First Person View (FPV) experience through goggles was out of reach for some users. The cost is no longer a barrier between you and the sky above. A real immersive experience for piloting in the first person view is made by Auriga Bebop application.

 The Auriga Bebop app allows an addictive and enjoyable flying experience with the Parrot Bebop drones 1 and 2.

Auriga Bebop allows you to place yourself in the "pilot’s seat" of your Bebop by monitoring a video feed during the flight. Thus, as you watch the view from the camera you can also see your batteries status, altitude, speed, compass, antenna pointer  and a variety of other telemetry readouts.

With Auriga Bebop you can move the camera of Bebop drone by your head movements (Head Tracking features) for an even more immersive feeling.

Auriga Bebop can be connected to the Bebop drone by Skycontroller 1 and 2 or Bluetooth controller in a single or FPV headset mode. Skycontroller can also work in combination with an additional Bluetooth Joypad or a Mini Gamepad for additional features such as acrobatic flight (flips) or for selecting the camera point of view: Pilot or Drone modes.

Instrument Landing System ILS for Parro Disco

The ILS for your Parrot Disco helps you to approach a proper landing operations in such a way that it warns you when it is the right time to press the landing button on your Skycontroller.

The Auriga’s ILS System allows you to set the best values of altitude and distance in order to approach the proper landing, besides Auriga’s ILS instrument helps you to align the Disco in the right way of the landing pathway.
