Parrot AR Drone 2.0 iPhone® & Android Quadricopter + Free Protective Carrybag
Parrot AR Drone 2.0 iPhone® & Android Quadricopter + Free Protective Carrybag
Improving on its predecessor with a number of key updates, the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 has arrived. Boasting a macked out High Definition main camera and with additional sensors and improved stability, this is one seriously high flyer. It’ll even perform mid-air flips! But the best part is that this high tech quadricopter is controlled entirely from your smartphone or tablet.
Already compatible with iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches; now Android users can get in on the aerial action too. The free App lets you stream live video from the AR Drone 2.0’s built-in cameras straight to your screen, while you fly. When you want to take off, just press the handily titled “Take Off” button. The AR Drone will rise into the air of its own accord and stop at a predetermined height. From that point you’re the pilot.
Tilt your device forwards and the drone will move forwards. Tilt it left to move left, and right to move right. Height and rotation are easily managed via touchscreen controls. Need to land? Let the software do it for you! Hit “Land” and the AR Drone will gently touch down – no more ungainly crash-landings so typical with other RC choppers. The introduction of a revolutionary new Absolute Flight mode and superior control interface means that even beginners can be winging above the treetops in no time.

Not content to just fly around streaming HD video to your smartphone or tablet, the AR Drone generates its own WiFi hotspot – ensuring communication is incredibly fast and responsive. The App will even let you stream augmented reality games over the top of your live video feed, so rather than just watching where you’re flying, you can engage virtual robots, or even challenge other AR Drones to an aerial dogfight! You can rain digital machinegun fire on them, launch missiles, and ultimately claim the title of King of the Skies – all via your iPhone’s screen. With a range of up to 50m you’ll have plenty of space to stand and fight; or turn and run!
Finally, the AR Drone comes with two interchangeable hull designs. The rugged Full Hull gives more protection when space is tight; while the more aerodynamic Streamlined Hull is lighter, for greater manoeuvrability outdoors. Either way, the polypropylene foam used in both designs gives a lightweight but robust feel to your drone – so it’ll take a few knocks and bumps without any problems. Although it might be worth you visiting the Pilot’s Academy on Parrot’s website first!
