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 stabilised.
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 50 metres 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 neighbourhood or watch videos from pilots at the other end of the world.
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 coloured hull is aerodynamic, allowing greater control outside.

Ratings & Reviews
Great product. Needs improvement. Read below.
Very fun to play with.
Extremely durable shell.
Stops automatically if the blade is obstructed.
Easy t o 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.
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.
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 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 …

AR Drone 2.0 - The ultimate fun......
My kids got me the AR Drone 2.0 for father's day from the Apple Online Store....Had the best father's day out at the beach with th is toy. 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! …

Great Product, shame about FreeFlight
The actual hardware is great, and the applications available are good. However, I can't help feeling that FreeFlight should still be here. It was removed from the App Store over a patent dispute and the joystick control, although wonderfully precise, isn't anywhere near as fun as ducking and diving your iPad around. …

- Asked by Daniel C from Eau Claire
Starting out as a novice and now after about 40 flights: While I have collected some scratches, the re have been no breakdowns, no parts to replace, and no decrease in performance. The indoor hull does its job (and it shows!) and the outdoor hull assumes the user is aware of any threatening obstacles.
Mine once did battle with a lampshade, and the lampshade had to be replaced, but the Drone was fine (and, perhaps I detected, a little smug, afterwards). Yes, it is tough. …

How faer away can it fly from your phone? I live on a 150 bluff above 100ft tree's can it fly above the trees?
- Asked by Thomas G from Rochester
yes you can fly just above the trees but I would not try it. losing a product like this would be a h uge waste of money. The drone can fly 160ft away from you and probably a little further but the connection may not last compared to what's around you. …
