Rolling Spider Review
I own the Rolling Spider, and I think the minidrone needs a bit more protection, besides the wheel. Personal testing, but I droppe I own the Rolling Spider, and I think the minidrone needs a bit more protection, besides the wheel. Personal testing, but I dropped the drone a few times and the carbon-fiber (according-to-parent) rod that held the wheels together broke in half.
Quite disappointing at this point.
And, the battery can be improved WAY WAY more, the Rolling Spider barely survives at MOST 15 minutes of flight. I was seriously expecting more (but I lost most of my expectations at the sight of the 550 mAh battery)
Besides these little defects, the Rolling Spider is a pretty easy-to-handle drone, thanks to the Android update which fixed the bug of taking pictures with the mini-camera under the drone.
Speaking of which, the camera needs a bit of a fix: sometimes I get yellow pictures, sometimes they're fine.
Looking SO forward to the Bebop Drone, hopefully with fixes for protection, battery and camera (one large feature I'm eager to check out)
Oh and also, quite wished I owned the Jumping Sumo, might've helped me win my battle against mini-drones with my friends by wrecking them with the jump XD …

Firstly I have to admit, I'm a drone addict and have been buying various devices from different brands over the past couple of yea Firstly I have to admit, I'm a drone addict and have been buying various devices from different brands over the past couple of years. Alongside my interest in 'big' sized hover monsters, I've also been trying to find an easy-to-fly 'mini' drone, which I've found to be quite a challenge. Last Easter I bought a couple of cheaper makes from the Gadget Show Live event and even though they were acceptable, their response speed to the RC controller and stability in the air were disappointing.
Having just got my hands on Parrot's Rolling Spider, my mini-drone search is now over! It's awesome and you can easily learn to fly in a matter of minutes. The iPad app and Bluetooth controls work brilliantly and clearly proves that paying a little more gives you a better quality of drone. …

Poor Battery Life

At first the battery seemed to hold up okay but now it drops from 100% to 3% after a few seconds. It's not as if it has had a lot of use either. …

Totally same experience as a previous reviewer. Works great for the first few goes then battery goes from 99% to 4% in 5 seconds, Totally same experience as a previous reviewer. Works great for the first few goes then battery goes from 99% to 4% in 5 seconds, and drone auto lands, thanks Apple, really cheesed off my son on boxing day, this useless 'toy' has sat in it's box since then.
Having purchased this from an Apple Store, I do not understand how Apple can not have tested this product vigorously to ensure it matches the requirements for brand Apple, because although it isn't Apple, I've purchased it from the store and being an avid Apple house, I fully expect all products to be on sale from Apple to be above and beyond the norm', even if it's not their own product, by association this parrot drone is lowering my opinion of Apple. …
