The Parrot AR.Drone is the first quadricopter to be controlled by your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Android device In fact, you can fly it indoors just as easily as outdoors. By using the Wi-Fi module located in the drone’s cockpit in conjunction with your smartphone or tablet, you can control its flight, using the built-in front and vertical high speed cameras to interact with apps for one-of-a-kind gaming experiences. Apps even creates campaigns with drone tags and marker detections to create an imaginary world of obstacles so that you can really break in your skills with your new drone and prove yourself through races, battles, alien invasions, and other challenges.
You can accelerate up to 11mph and travel to a range of approximately 164 feet with your drone. Autopilot contributes heavily to successful lift off and landing and automatically kicks in and stabilizes the drone if you lose your Wi-Fi signal. The Parrot AR.Drone may be a game but it’s hardly a toy.
