Parrot AR.Drone FreeFlight App for Android Released


One of the coolest flying gadgets on the planet just got better! Previously the Parrot AR.Drone iPhone controlled Quadricopter was only available to fly (using the iphone FreeFlight App) with iphones, ipod touches and ipads. Now the makers of this insanely addictive flying device have released an Android App as well, so just about anybody that owns a tablet or smartphone worth its salt (IMHO Blackberry is a little on the skids as of late) can now fly one of these.

To use the FreeFlight application, your Android phone or tablet must meet the following criteria:
Your device must be running Android version 2.2 (or a later version). To check what version of Android is installed on your phone, go to Settings > About phone > Software information > Android version.

  • The screen of your device must have the Multitouch function. Please refer to the user guide or specifications for your phone for more information.
  • Your device must have an accelerometer. Please refer to the user guide or specifications for your phone for more information.

Get your Parrot AR.Drone today or find out more and how to download FreeFlight for Android here.
