(I hope I posted this in the right place. If not, feel free to move it to the correct folder.)

I watched Fiddlerman's video about saving his recorded drone tones to his iPhone, then playing it back through his right ear. Makes perfect sense. The tones are always right there, ready to be used. 

However, I haven't been able to save the drone tone files to my iPhone. 

If someone can help me figure out how to save the files, I'll be most grateful.

Thanks,

Strabo

I will send off a PM to Fiddlerman with a link to your post. I saw no way to do it either, but I am not a wiz at that.

I was using safari on my iphone and ipad. No options to download. I touched all over the place. Some things just don't work on an Apple device.

i dont think its apple... i tried to replicate what i did and its not working now.  i thought simple fix at first when it worked but hasnt since..

@Strabo as an alternative for $10.00 you can get this.  I have them and makes acces very easy when needed.  Im sure the fiddlerman drone link will be corrected but just wanted to share these as well.

If you have chrome (probably other browsers too) on a PC (I don't know about smartphones!), you can right click on an empty spot on the page (not the drone or other link) and click "View Page Source".

Once you can see the source for the page, search for "The drones will loop automatically" which is the text just before the list of drone links. Scroll down and you'll see each drone mp3 file  (..https://fiddlerman.com/wp-cont.....-Drone.mp3). You should be able to right click on each of these and same the audio file to you pc and then transfer to you phone.

I don't know why the "old fashioned" right click on the front link to save to computer, doesn't allow saving as mp3, but on my Chrome PC it only saved as html!

Good luck, I'm going out to learn to fly my new DRONE!

Yes, I'm using Safari to connect to the Fiddlerman website and it does work OK. But it requires a live internet connection. In his video Fiddlerman said that he somehow downloaded the file to his phone. I understand that to mean that the file (drone tone) is now stored on his phone, where it can be played any time, regardless of whether he has an internet connection. To me that seems like a superior solution. But for course I have not been able to make it work.

Maybe it has to do with iTunes, which I have never been able to understand...

@Strabo I PM’d Fiddlerman about it. If we don’t get a reply mid-week, I will send another. 

I think Fiddlerman downloaded them because they are in his computer as files.

He just didn’t post them in a downloadable manner, I think. We will get an answer.
