    • Restore All Parrot Drone programability

      I was hugely dissapointed by the removal of this support. True, there are many variables that influence the success of the coder's success in such projects, but still provided a vaaluable coding process challenge. Please restore this functionality and continue to develop block programming for flying drones.

        There was a day when IE and Netscape was an issue. .....now iPhone and Android are an issue. Let us be creative and solve the issue in order to move on to a Galaxy Far, Far Away.....BB8

        • Are parrot Drones no longer working?

          Hi there,

          I have been trying to get in contact for a few days now, but I have been unsuccessful. I have emailed, messaged on social media, but have had no reply. I'm hoping that this method finds you in order to provide me with some help.

          I am a school teacher in the UK and I am running a drone programme to teach pupils how to programme drones. I've been using Airborne Cargo Drones, and they are working brilliantly on the iPads. However, since the App has updated, there is NO option for the drones any more when creating…

            • Is Tickle the same as Tcl/Tk?

              I'm confused, having used Tcl/Tk (Tcl is pronounced tickle), I was thinking that this was somehow related, like Java and Java Script, yet Tickle doesn't look like a scripting language.

              Not sure why you'd use a name very similar to an existing language?

              • Parrot drone support shambles.

                Support for Parrot drones. Wasted my money as I can no longer use the device for its intended purpose.

                • Support parrot minidrones and the new parrot swing and mambo.

                  Please return support for parrot minidrones. It's really getting everyone very agitated!

                  • Please bring back parrot drones as a supported device. We have invested lots of money to purchase these devices.

                    Bring back parrot drones as supported devices. We have an elective class that students are currently enrolled in and can't continue without them being supported. We have invested lots of money to create this course at our school. Please help by having an early version that can be downloaded or add it back into the devices you can connect to in the app.

                              • Detect when Dash gets stuck

                                The Dash robot has the ability to know when it gets stuck (the Blockly app for Dash supports this). It happens very often that while navigating the visual sensors don't detect an obstacle and the robot gets stuck and spins. It is useful to program an event to have it reverse course in this case.

                                Thanks!

                                • Remove Drones from Tickle

                                  I am glad that flying drones are removed from Tickle. They wasn't properly controlled by the app and it could be potentially dangerous with young children since they are the main target group. There's no reason why the huge range of devices aren't attractive enough for kids to pick up programming.

                                    . I just bought three drones, and they are now useless.
                                    I checked your website before i bought them, also downloaded the app, and they were mentioned there aswell, also a guide on how to program them posted on your webpage.
                                    This is very sad...

                                      Sphero paths can be hard to follow or debug because it's round. There is a light tail, a LED that indicate its back.
                                      SPRK LAB for example has a command to switch on/off this tail at will (and with varying intensities).
                                      Tickle show the tail only when manually orienting Sphero. There is no way to light the tail during the execution of a program.

                                      It would be very useful to be able to keep the tail on when a Tickle program execute. (Orientation is the most confusing part of Sphero, and can make programming it or debugging its reaction to…

                                      • Give students the ability to type in their code, rather than drag and drop?

                                        I teach 7th and 8th grade students basic programming concepts and many of them are advanced beyond the drag and drop level. Is there a way that they can enter code themselves, and learn Swift syntax that way?
