Product Information

  • Overview

    Jump and roll anywhere

    Fast, rugged, and lively, the Parrot MiniDrone Jumping Sumo robot performs acrobatics on command from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using the FreeFlight 3 app. This easy-to-use device gives you an entirely new way to experience playing with robots.

    An acrobatic and fearless adventurer

    Jumping Sumo generates its own Wi-Fi (AC) connection, so you can automatically connect to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch as soon as you enter the free FreeFlight 3 application. An advanced jumping system gives Jumping Sumo a vertical and horizontal jump up to 2.5 feet/80 centimeters. It also rolls at up to 3.3 ft/s (2 m/s) and turns 90 and 180 degrees in the blink of an eye.

    Take control your way

    Jumping Sumo offers two different experiences with its adjustable wheels. Depending on your level of experience you can choose stability (wheels extended) or speed (wheels retracted). The sturdy, shock-proof design lets it jump, roll, spin, and explore without stopping. Plus, Jumping Sumo always lands on its wheels. Thanks to its built-in gyroscope and high-speed processor, you can make the most of Jumping Sumo’s superb agility and highly intuitive driving control.

    Small size, big personality

    Jumping Sumo reveals its cheeky and mischievous personality through the flashing LED lights and sounds. You can also customize your robot's look according to your mood with a range of stickers. Program your own animations and choreograph different moves and tricks to impress everyone watching.

    Fresh out of the box, it seemed fine, it played for maybe 3-5 minutes. After charging battery it didn't want to connect. After re Fresh out of the box, it seemed fine, it played for maybe 3-5 minutes. After charging battery it didn't want to connect. After rebooting everything involved, got it to connect but would drop every5-10 seconds. Managed to get firmware updated after many attempts. Same result.
    Noticed my battery was already at half and hadn't even got to use it. The top got very warm and after a couple tries with their phone support, they only could pass me off to an email form for help.

    So new drone out of the box is unusable and I don't feel like waiting days for help to arrive. Apple store promptly initiated return process.

    I may have just gotten a bad one but since company not forthcoming with help, I'll sit back and wait until the product is solid before I even consider spending money on it again.

I found that Office Depot sells the Micro USB's small enough for the Parrot to take photos and videos. The only reason I give this device a 4 is the battery life is 20 mins and the disconnection/connection errors that it occasionally has.

    Great little robot, works like a charm with iPhone, Ipad and my Galaxy S4. Battery lasts about 15-20mins if I don't do to many jum Great little robot, works like a charm with iPhone, Ipad and my Galaxy S4. Battery lasts about 15-20mins if I don't do to many jumps. Range is about 50

    meters when unobstructed. I use it in the evening to check if all the doors in the house are locked (visually checking position of door lock) kind of

    fun way to use it, though I would be really interested to see if I could program it to do the same path.
    Control is very simple and jumping can be done with a single touch of my finger. The noises it makes are cute though a bit annoying :-) I haven't

    managed to reach the limit for pictures of the internal memory, my guess would be more than 500 ! Picture quality is pretty good, though I would use

    them for very large prints, then again the sumo wasn't designed to be a professional camera.
    I like the fact that you can make it more stable by pulling the wheels outwards, for a wider stance. The Sumo is very strong build as I have had some

    major,hmmm..., mishaps with it. I threw it on the roof (fairly flat pitch) to check the roof out and visually inspect the rain gutters. Problem was to

    get it back down as there was an edge it couldn't drive over, so I made it jump :-) it landed on the deck below (12ft drop) without any damage

    whatsoever. Very tough little robot.
