Product Information

  • Overview

    Intuitive

    Download AR.FreeFlight 2.0, the free control application, from the App Store in iTunes and you're ready to fly. By tilting your device, you control the direction of your AR.Drone, and by releasing it, the AR.Drone is instantly stabilized.

    Record and share in HD

    As you fly, the HD video is recorded and sent directly to your device. With one click, upload your video from the user-friendly interface seamlessly to YouTube or share your pictures on Picasa. With the new piloting application, everything is simple and done wirelessly in an instant. For pilots looking to shoot longer videos, a USB plug-in has been added for larger recording storage.

    Pilot like a pro

    Thanks to the AR.Drone's autopilot feature, anyone can be an expert as the embedded sensors allow for easy take-off and landing. The new AR.Drone 2.0 also features the exclusive and patented Absolute Control piloting mode for beginners that can be adjusted with your growing expertise.

    With the new AR.Drone 2.0-generated WiFi N Connection, you can fly as far as 165 feet away. The AR.Drone 2.0 pressure sensors on-board provide unique stability that will automatically correct and maintain a still position in the air regardless of altitude and wind up to 15 mph.

    Join a community of pilots

    Keep track of your flight data, location, photos and videos and share them with a community of other pilots from all over the world thanks to the AR.Drone Academy. Check who is flying in your neighborhood or watch videos from pilots at the other end of the world.

    Acrobatic

    This flip move is exclusive to AR.Drone 2.0. Become a daring pilot and perform barrel rolls by simply hitting a button.

    Indoor and outdoor hulls

    The full hull shield protects the AR.Drone from impacts that occur during wild battles against enemies hidden in the rooms of the house. The streamlined colored hull is aerodynamic, allowing greater control outside.

    High durability and easy repair

    AR.Drone is made of carbon fiber and high-resistance PA66 plastic. You can replace all parts for easy repair.

    Augmented reality games

    Not only can you see what the AR.Drone sees with the front-mounted camera, you can play a wide variety of games in augmented reality. AR.Games are available in the App Store in iTunes. Choose from a selection of single-player and multiplayer games, using the AR.Drone's camera and the augmented reality applications. Shoot enemies or other drones.

    Pros:
    Very fun to play with.
    Extremely durable shell.
    Powerful motors.
    Stops automatically if the blade is obstructed.
    Easy t Pros:
    Very fun to play with.
    Extremely durable shell.
    Powerful motors.
    Stops automatically if the blade is obstructed.
    Easy to replace individual parts.
    Easy to understand instruction videos.
    Several games for it on the App Store®
    Unable to save pictures or videos. - Only pictures via screen shots.
    Adjustable max altitude, tilt, and alt increase.
    Gyroscope control or directional pad.
    A lot of online support.
    Easy to use interface.

    Cons:
    The battery only last for about 15 minutes and then needs to be recharged.
    It doesn't handle well in light or strong wind.
    The range isn't as good as i expected. It starts to skip at about 30-50ft, unobstructed.
    The charge level lights on the charge indicator didn't work correctly.
    After charging for hours and the charger indicated it was charged, when connected the system reported the battery at less than 50%. - The last two problems can be either a problem with the charger, with the battery, or both.
    After a couple of crashes, some of the blades became loose and had a slight wobble. I couldn't fix them and it flew fine. It was only noticeable when the blades were spinning.
    The indoor haul started to get torn up around the inside edge of the blade enclosures. Presumable because the blade digs into it when something is bumped.
    Camera quality was ok. The front camera was about the same quality as camera on the back of an iPod Touch® or the front camera of an iPhone®. The bottom camera was not as good of quality. Reminded me of security videos they show on the news.
    NOT good as a spy plane. It makes considerable noise.

    Recommendation:
    While this is a great product. It has much room for improvement. Before buying this you should research other options to be sure it is right for you.

    I had this up and flyig right after the battery was charged. Absolutely fantastic and fun to fly. This is incredible.

    So far I I had this up and flyig right after the battery was charged. Absolutely fantastic and fun to fly. This is incredible.

    So far I cannot get my android motorola to connect the flight app to the unit. It says it can't find it, but I know that there is some setting lurking out there that I need.

    For now I am using my ipad 1 and the free software to control it. Push a button - it takes off and hovers in position. Tilt the ipad and the unit tilts in the direction you do so it goes that way. release the button on screen and the unit levels itself and hovers.

    Set maximum alt easily. Set max amount of tilt easilly. Push a buttton and it lands itself straight down.

    This thing has enormous fun built in and the camera is fantastic. I haven't tried the games yet because I don't know anyone that has one besides me around here, but I have no doubt these will be a real hit. Especially as the open source apps come online and really open up the gaming.

    I used to be a professional pilot. I love this thing

It was so easy to control and responded to commands from my iPad without any delay. Very stable & easy to fly..i felt like en expert flying RC's after just 5mins. Very robust. I crashed twice but it left not even a hint that it crashed. Indoor use is even better. I can maneuver around furniture with great ease. But one now and enjoy it forever. Video functions works really well. Fun, Fun, Fun!

    2. Wifi connection recognized only about once in 10 tries, keeps saying out of range, oh is four inches from the drone to the tablet just too far?
    3. Apps buggy and take forrrrrrrrrever to load. 20 minutes IKYN
    4. Reboot / restart time needed after time after time after time

However after only having it for maybe 3 days it decided to take off 10 feet away from me ignoring my controls and it landed itself on the roof of my 3 level home. I had to get a ladder and climb to the top of the roof to get this thing. Then, a week or so later when I decided to test it again it did the same thing maybe 10 feet above my head. I decided to climb, and it went up to probably 300-600 feet where it then banked to the right and got stuck in the TOP of a pine tree. When I contacted the company for help, no reply even months later. I contacted them 10 times at least leaving the same phone number and email as before. Biggest waste of 300 dollars I've ever spent.

    I was given a Parrot Drone for Christmas last year. It worked for a month or so, but now it does not recharge. I even bought a new I was given a Parrot Drone for Christmas last year. It worked for a month or so, but now it does not recharge. I even bought a new battery for it, and it will not charge either. This is a $300.00 toy? It's a piece of junk. I advise others to stay away from this. It doesn't work right, and Parrot doesn't care a whit!
