Joseph - lay off the PowerEye at this time - they have not updated anything since the day it first shipped - the company is focusing on stuff that sails on water.

I was thinking of buying one of these but they are costing way to high right now and its really hard to buy these now a days.

Doug Stewart

Hi Bo, many thanks for your speedy and valued reply.

As suggested, I did email powervision, only to be sent a link to the quick start guide!.

I have not yet been able to fly the powereye at all since I purchased it three days ago, as I have serious wifi issues? I am thinking that it could possibly be down to the fact that as I live in the highlands of Scotland UK, that the wifi frequency may be different?

I am an experienced done user and I own a Inspire 1, a Yuneec Q500 and a DJI Spark, with no issues!.

I have tried to connect with three separate Android tablets (which I use to fly my Inspire and my spark) but, these tablets do not recognize to wifi signal as sent by the power-eye?

I have tried it with my Samsung galaxy note 4 phone, and I can get a connection which is unreliable and only lasts about five minutes?

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated , before I may be unfortunately forced to return the drone to the dealer.

If powervision would only have provided a alternative tablet/phone connection, like DJI's OTG cable?, that would solve my problem, “maybe they do?” as there is a unexplained usb socket on the controller?

This is why I need the full User manual, which is apparently unavailable?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

“Cheers, aye yours, from bonnie Scotland”

Hey Doug, unfortunately I never had a file for that, PowerVision had me send everything back right after I did the review, shoot a email to PowerVision for the full document.

Doug Stewart

Hi Bo, I have just bought the powereye, I was wondering if I could get a link to the fULL user manual? as there is a lot that is not said in the quick start!.

I am very impressed with your review. Well Done!

Bo Lorentzen

Hey Gregory, I returned the PowerEye to PowerVision a while back, so can't check, but 99% sure there is a firmware check / upgrade option on the tablet under the aircraft settings.
Also give PowerEye a call, they can definitely explain the correct procedure.


do we need updates or how do we know id the powereye is up to date. dji lets ya know and its easy to update.
I just got this last week and am very used to dji and was wondering how do i check for updates on the bird and how to change altitude settings on return home function if i ever have to use it.

Court Johnson

Do I understand correctly; there are no programmed fail safe modes to return the quad to home should a failure in communication (lost link) or low battery level occur? If this is the case a system failure easily escalates into a lost quad.

Thanks for your input...

Hey Dhruvil,
Not sure how they are doing this, maybe shoot a email to them at their website at www.PowerVision.me :-)


How many frames per second can camera work?

How do you do object detection?

I am using 3dr solo and using Hero 4 go pro camera for object detection. I am using opencv library but I am getting blurred image some how.

I just want to know, Do you process video or image?

Bo Lorentzen

Hey David, Yes and no...
With a iPhone or iPad tablet, since the connection to the handset is WiFi hotspot based. You can use apples lightning to HDMI out adapter and double tap on the screen to hide the control interface. double tap again to show the control interface.
Same thing with a Android tablet with a HDMI out port.

david peterson

Hey fpv guy! I only want to know about live broadcasting and hdmi out; does it do this? Secret Agent productions!

Bo Lorentzen

Hey Richard,
Great questions.
1. yes its a full on dual operator quad. you bind the second radio to the first and it controls the gimbal yaw-pitch. and the camera operator see the gimbal cam, the pilot can chose which one to see.
2. its 180deg rotation to each side from front center. less than the inspire, and it dont do the "flip" for the never ending rotation trick.

Richard Gilmore

Hi Bo, so its really a dual operator machine, how about Gimbal Yaw? Is it 360'or does it have limits? If it is limited by means of a mechanical stop.... does the aircraft do the spin like inspire 2?? Or does pilot have to yaw the craft to allow a full rotation? Thanks
