Product Information

  • Overview

    Fly and roll

    Turn any place into a playground with Parrot's MiniDrone Rolling Spider robot. Simply connect it to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Bluetooth Smart technology, then take control using the FreeFlight 3 app. You'll quickly have Rolling Spider weaving through the air and showing off its acrobatic moves.

    Amazing acrobatics

    With a click of your finger, Rolling Spider flips 360 degrees and with a simple swipe it can turn 90 degrees and 180 degrees. Take advantage of pre-programmed acrobatic moves in FreeFlight 3 to keep everyone entertained.

    The agile, ultra-compact drone

    Attach removable wheels to your Rolling Spider and get ready to roll it across the floor, up a wall or across the ceiling. The sky's the limit.

    Take a photo

    Every 16 milliseconds the vertical camera takes pictures of a set point on the ground. It then compares each photo to the previous one in order to determine Rolling Spider's speed.

    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

  • Mostly Good, requires practice

    Its certainly a cool little product. I could fly it straight out of the box but it takes some practice initially, I recommend fly Its certainly a cool little product. I could fly it straight out of the box but it takes some practice initially, I recommend flying outside to start with or in a large room with the wheels attached. The app for iPhone is OK but a bit of work to make it more intuitive would be great, especially for the 'trick' buttons which I've only just worked out. Battery life is only about 6 minutes but once the spare batteries are available I'll be getting one. The camera is OK for snaps but the photo's seem over-exposed. There has already been a firmware update and an app update so no doubt Parrot will be improving these products all the time. Generally pretty happy though!

    The Spider Robot from Parrot is quite a lot of fun, and I am glad to have bought one.

    Pros:

    The paired app is easy to use a The Spider Robot from Parrot is quite a lot of fun, and I am glad to have bought one.

    Pros:

    The paired app is easy to use and intuitive. Flying and maneuvering the drone around is very straightforward
    The ability to take pictures
    Being able to move both on the ground and the ground

    Cons:
    Less than stellar battery life

    Even with the battery life, I still get quite a lot of use out of the drone, so this isn't so bad.

    Overall, would recommend the spider robot.

    It is a great toy, but there is only one problem: the battery life is too short. Must buy extra batteries.The camera is quiet good It is a great toy, but there is only one problem: the battery life is too short. Must buy extra batteries.The camera is quiet good, but is at the bottom if it is on the head will be better. This is the best toy to fly, spying at home. I like it very much. You must try it.
    Thank you PARROT.

    I bought it as a gift for my brother. But I couldn't help opening it and playing for days. It is really cool, easy to get started I bought it as a gift for my brother. But I couldn't help opening it and playing for days. It is really cool, easy to get started and control. The only flaw is that the battery can only last 2 minutes after each full charge. This is really frustrating.
