Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter
I purchased the AR Drone after an impressive demonstration at a local GameStop and was able to get the unit up and running in less than five minutes using the included quick start guide. The AR Drone is impressive, it include dual cameras one front facing and one that gives you an aerial view. Both camera's stream video directly to your idevice or Android powered phone with the free app thats available on App store and Andorid Marketplace. No remote is included with the AR Drone as it is controlled exclusively on you mobile device. This software allows you to climb, descend, rotate AR Drone and move in eight directions using the on screen controls. If you are familiar with an Xbox 360 or PS3 controller you will have no problem navigating with the AR Drone but it is highly recommended that you review their tutorial videos that are available on the official AR Drone website. In addition to including an outdoor and indoor hull their is also a third party app available that allows you to record video using the onboard cameras. Overall the AR Drone is an extraordinary product that provides an truly unique experience. Hats off to the team at Parrot on their ground breaking design and support!
UBELIEVABLY MORTIFINGLY BAD
The greatest gift I ever had... For one hour. Everything has to be in perfect working order for the drone to work, warranty is limited, and replacement parts do not fit. After a brief period of time, my drone started to get about 20 feet up in the air, and I was unable to land it. When it came crashing down, its motherboard was broken, and I had to send it in. Several weeks later, my drone came back all sparkling and new. After about 2 weeks of flying, my drone locked up over a stream of water. I had to push it out of the air with an emergency landing, which broke the crosspiece. After checking the Parrot site, I realized that as of that moment, no repair parts were available in the US, so I had to wait... And half a year latter, they were put online. I got a new crosspiece, slid it in, and then realized that my motors and propellers were to old, and that they did not fit. The cost of all the replacement parts would have totaled to be about the same as the A.R. drone itself, so I called it a day and got a Helo TC from Griffin.
