BUG: Snap request [BATTERY_PERCENTAGE] block

  • Hey folks, looks like we've identified an odd issue with the request block with the help of some very observant customers. When you select BATTERY_PERCENTAGE from the dropdown menu and run the block, an infinite loop occurs where the board will continue to request the battery percentage. If you're seeing that the board continues flashing multi-color even after you've stopped the block or even removed it, that means the bug is occurring.

    What happens sometimes is because that request keeps happening in the background, as soon as you run another command, it will end up overloading the board (because too many requests are happening) and shutting it off. Of course, this means your CoDrone will get disconnected if the board shuts off.

    The best way to resolve this is to just restart Snap and not run the request block if this issue is happening. We're currently fixing this bug, where the request only runs once and won't run in the background.

    I will let you all know when the new version is out!

  • We've fixed this issue in the Chrome app now! Please make sure to download the latest version, which is version 1.1.7.
