Lightbulb Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

Sponsored Links
(I hope this is allowed, for it links up to a non parrotforums-content/ if not, plze just remove)

I just send and email to the chap(s) at parotuniversity (since they are one of the largest sellers of the Aviator I know off and the people in the NL-shops did not have an answer for me) and got an almost instant answer.

====
Long mail, shortend version:
(my question)

....
I thought I was the only one for years, but now I found many, many people have exactly the same problem:
We cannot play the instruction DVD!

Most laptops (and no phones of course) and a lot of smaller computers have no longer this option (CD's and DVD's are becomming obsolete fast!) and though we would loooove to follow the instructions..we cannot get at them!
Is there anyway it would be legal to just rip the content and put it out there (online or download) for people to vieuw?
(Or even put in on USB instead?)

A lot of people get discouraged and give up because they only have a few fragmented Youtubes they can get at, so a lot of parrots miss out on going safely outside.

====
(also shortened a bit)
answer:


...
We do have a YouTube Channel where the DVD is available in several languages. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiA...WvyOxFe3zXn43w

There are also a few other videos linked to the page. The page with the DVD has been up for many years. Just last week we started experimenting with linking to other videos on YouTube.

If you find any videos you think are good quality with good ideas please send me the link. We want to find about 100 good quality videos we can link to the page so they best ones will be available in the same location.

Thanks for the support, please pass on the channel information.

Thanks,
Steve

......


Now I feel a bit stupid (for not have found this on my own) and very glad it seems to be readily available.

So-- for all those future other aviator users,
here it is
with some luck even in a language you might find more easy on the ears if you are not a native speaker!

Re: Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

Parrot University is the manufacturer of the Aviator. I have had contact with them and they were always quick with a reply, informative, and polite.

Re: Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

LOL I did not know that - it was a gamble.
I share your experience with them: always a quick, kind and to the point answers.


(I had issues with the size for Sunny before, because at the time she was exactly 1000 grams/ and a fatty but undertrained bird, so it could go either way. She is 1250 grams now and no longer fat! So she turned out to be a true XL.)

Re: Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

I never really thought about CD-ROMS and DVD-ROMS becoming obsolete, and the fact that some laptops/towers don't even come with a CD/DVDRW drive anymore...I would die without one, I burn CD's constantly (yes I own a IPOD too, lol)..I have a really expensive Bang&Olfsen component stereo system in my house that I wi#ll die with, as sometimes a system is so good that nothing ever created will ever sound any better...And it has a freaking 100-disc changer, lol...I also play old computer games that are on CD-ROMS, like "Myst" and "Under a Killing Moon", so that's just not an option...#OldSkool

Re: Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

of topic like mad...again... but I love the B&O products.
I just have crazy bad DVD/CD (player,writer anything basicly) karma: I went through 3 different computers and 8 or 9 dvdrw etc units and they all go bzzzzzrt the moment they see me coming.
(I have so many games lined up I want to play Myst being one of them btw).


Anyway- so happy I can just watch this one online at least!

Re: Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

Oh I'll not ever have another brand of stereo equipment...Bose, Sony, Pioneer, and all the rest can't even come close to the B&O...I didn't learn about them until I became the sales manager in an Audi dealership and got to listen to the systems they put in the cars...The A8 and the S models have an 18-speaker B&O system available that is just ridiculous.

And Myst is one of the best video/computer games ever created...I only play old games and then the Grand Theft Auto's...

Re: Aviator - the how-to-use-it online instructions

I bought the aviator and it came with the dvd and it's around here somewhere. If you don't get what you want by the end of the day send me a PM, (it will hit my email account) and I'll look around for it. I can convert dvd to youtube or whatever and upload for you but it's probably on youtube somewhere already.
