This is a gadget/hobby you need. It's very easy to use (via iPhone/iPad - or Android) and flies beautifully. In no time you'll be mastering the incredible device.

The added benefit of a HD camera means you can see/film your flights (of fancy).

The AR Drone 2.0 Elite Edition is an impressive piece of kit and compared to cheaper radio-controlled helicopters/quadcopters it is actually easy to use.

Once out of the box and once you have downloaded the software from your app store of choice (I was using an iPad) you just need to connect to the drone via WiFi and fire up the free flight mode.

I found a nice piece of open ground just to be sure and once I hit the Take Off button the rotors spun up and the drone was hovering mid-air without a care in the world.

Control is easy once you get the hang of it and if you think things are getting out of hand just taking your thumb off the virtual joystick and it goes back into hover mode.

The Elite Edition has added 720p recording and direct recording to USB. The USB recording saves battery life and lets you record as much as you can fit on your chosen capacity of USB drive.

Battery life is really the only downfall and even though it boasts 12 minutes of flight time I found it to be closer to 10 minutes in the best case scenario and five minutes in the worst.

The trick is to buy a few extra batteries which, at R500 a pop, aren’t all that expensive compared to the cost of the whole unit.

I found that my suburban garden was a little cramped for it so I would suggest heading to a park to stretch the AR drone’s legs.

nice product and easy to fly better the the parrot drone 1
and Handel nice in the wind very good and stable

I bought the Ar Drone 2.0 after having flown the ARdrone 1.0 for some time. I was a little hesitant but shouldnt have been as the 2.0 is so much better and has many improvements. It is much more stable to fly and the hover is rock solid. The picture quality on the new 720P HD camera is so much better.

Control is much more crisp and precise than before, making it much easier to fly.

I am relearning and gaining confidence and cant wait to try using the new director mood to make some fun movie shots. The onboard USB port is a big improvement as now you can record directy to USB stick.

Going to have to buy more batteries including the new higher capacity ones as this new 2.0 unit makes we want to fly more often.

All in all a great improvement from the previous version
