    Great fun and very durable

    I've now owned this drone for a short period of time and it is one of the best app enabled devices out there. Even in the realm of RC quadcopters, this is one of the most sophisticated products and of very high quality. The relatively short flight time per charge is my only issue with it. I have not found range to be a problem, but perhaps I haven't pushed things far enough. Video streaming directly to your iOS device will hog some of the WiFi bandwidth and therefore may impose limitations on range or video quality and smoothness. I would therefore suggest the use of a USB stick for the purpose of recording video. You will not be disappointed by this drone. Thoroughly recommended!!!

    Very simply- fantastic! Just a brilliant piece of equipment!

    With its twin cameras and very easy controls I recommend the AR Drone 2.0 to everyone looking for some easy fun with there Apple devices, I use an iPhone 5 to control mine and the compact HD display of the 5 makes controlling it a doddle.
    Anyone who says this isn't a great bit of kit is either too old, too daft or too impatient to fly it, after all, it is a very sophisticated thing, so you have to have some basic knowledge or even just an idea of how to fly or drive something to use it (just get on Tom Clancys HAWX or Forza on your XBOX or PS3 if your having troubles using it, that should help you out).
    The only thing I would say though is if you don't have one, BUY ONE!

    Fantastic toy, even better now at version 2

    This helicopter is extremely easy to fly, huge fun and the onboard video cameras (two) and telemetry are a nice touch. To fly properly you may benefit from buying a 3rd party app (there are plenty available with reviews) and there are other hardware upgrades for longer flight times and better performance if you so wish. A great product only slightly let down by the inherent range (think also altitude) limitations of WiFi.
