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.

However, within a day or two of having the product, battery life began to be a huge issue. At the end, a "full" charge was lasting less than 30 seconds. Product returned, I'll wait until the kinks are worked out.

I can easily wrap the palm of my hand around it. 2) It is the easiest thing to connect, it connects automatically within seconds. 3) The wheels that attach that help you go on the ceiling are extremely fun to use. 4) The only downside is that you really only get a solid 8-10 minutes to use it before it dies.

    If they have found a fix to the running for 5 seconds problem I apologize, if not then its a total waste of money . I give it 1 st If they have found a fix to the running for 5 seconds problem I apologize, if not then its a total waste of money . I give it 1 star because it was fun for the hour it worked at 15 minutes between charges.. .Oh found a website that guaranteed a fix ,$47.00 for a week, Over a $100.00 for a year. I'm thinking of a second mortgage so I can maybe fly my Mini Drone for another 15 minutes. Fairly easy to maneuver, good pictures. Would love it if could run it.

The battery is holding off quite well, and I really like it's performance. One thing I'd like is for the drone to come with some extra propellers, but other than that, it's pretty well presented. After about two weeks or so, I noticed that when I try to retrieve the pictures I took, it won't do it; all it does is stay in the 'retrieving photos' stage. I don't know if it's a problem from the app, or if it's the drone, but until I figure it out, I can't collect the pictures I took. Other than that, the drone actually holds out really well. I have crashed it a bit, and the propellers hold out pretty well. I don't really mind about the charge time, but it would be nice if there was a longer-lasting battery type. It flies for a good amount of time still. I really like the Rolling Spider, and I would really recommend it to beginners. Grant that its a bit pricy, but once it's flown, it's really worth it. It's very stable, has a pretty average flight time for quadcopter drones, and is very easy to control. I would just warn to keep a look out for the glitch in the photo retrieval.

    If and when it decided to link with the software on the phone / iPad it will fly for about 20 seconds and then the battery is flat If and when it decided to link with the software on the phone / iPad it will fly for about 20 seconds and then the battery is flat, plug it in for 1.5 hours and then enjoy anther 20 seconds of flight! Don't waste your money and buy a £20 remote control helicopter you will have much more fun.
