    Great Fun

    • Written by from Eugene

    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......

    • Written by from Ventura

    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 this 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!

    Unbelievable tool/toy

    • Written by from Marietta

    I had to tell my wife that I got this for work related reasons. Although that is true, this is the neatest toy I have ever had. I can't imagine getting one of these as a kid! If you want one, or think you want one, go get it. You will be happy you did. Easy to fly. I fly using iPad2 and it works great! Check out the videos on parrot.com to see how you can really fly this exceptionally cool drone. I found a couple of negative reviews and I don't understand how any one could say anything bad in the least! I am able to fly this drone just like it was represented. The more you practice the better you get. For the money, this is by far the best $300 I have ever spent. I am in my 50's and this made me feel like like it was my 10th birthday!
    PS. I really do use it for work!

    Awesome

    • Written by from Center

    At first i had some problems with loss of altitude but since the recent update it works great and i live at 7600 ft and it still works good "without either of the hulls on it." Better buy and extra battery for more flight time. the stock battery works good. might as well order some extra shafts and gears because its hard to get them later.

    Makes iPad and iPhone worth owning... The Best!

    • Written by from West Dennis

    The best flight toy since X-Plane! Am on my third one... one is early model without betterments, one is in the top of a tree in my back yard and unaccessable, and a newer model. Many improvements make this Drone easy to fly (after you get the hang of it). I fly it every day. Be sure and order a set of extra props and gears.

    Have fun... lots of fun!

    Love this thing ;)

    • Written by from Calgary

    Very EASY to fly. and DURABLE.

    It has an HD Video camera (and you can see the video LIVE -> WHILE FLYING on my iPad (3) and/or on my iPhone 4S.

    I wish it recorded sound too.

    Parrot please make a version 3 of the Parrot that includse being able to put an iPhone in as payload and remote HD camera and to use a 2nd iPhone or iPad to control (so that we could extend the range (from 50-100' to infinity by using 3G or 4G LTE...

    Best RC product

    • Written by from Wichita

    Bought this on a whim thinking it would help me fill in some spare time. Got an extra battery and have been having fun for weeks! Highly recommended iPhone/iPad "Accessory"!

    Awesome. Easiest to fly RC anything!

    • Written by from CANTONMENT

    Hey for all those people that say this is no good, they need there head examined! I am paralyzed from the neck down and I can control this with my only moving finger right from my wheelchair with no problems. This does everything it says it's supposed to and flies so easily. I used to fly RC professionally before I was injured and this thing is amazingly nimble. The only con is battery life at 12 minutes. This is equivalent to anything on the market, but it's so much fun I recommend an extra!

    AR Drone The Best Ever

    • Written by from Dorchester

    Can't wait to see some new style's like that current one and I hope battery life can be longer on it. It's a really a big push for modern technology and gaming

    Awesome!

    • Written by from union

    I was skeptical in buying this seeing as its $300... Glad I did! It's awesome! The technology in this is amazing. Even on windy days it still can fly (just wouldn't recommend flying too high). The camera isn't breathtaking, but its really good considering its small and attached to a helicopter! Bottom camera though is horrible. Not even worth using. I'm a beginner flyer and it was pretty easy for me to pick up and use. Battery doesn't last long, buy a spare. A lot of technology to power up, doesn't surprise me. All in all, glad I got it!

    I decided on an iPad Mini just for the AR Drone 2.0

    • Written by from Austin

    I have had many RC toys-- planes (now toothpicks), boats and cars-- and this is the easiest, most rugged, and the most capable.

    Some software features will make use of iOS devices which have GPS chips and also those with Internet connection (like the iPad Mini with cellular capability), but if your device lacks those, it will not detract from the flying and video abilities.

    Ease: With half a charge remaining, I landed, handed my iPad to a friend who had never flown any such craft before, gave him thirty seconds of instruction, and away he went, only landing when the battery ran low.

    Rugged: My indoor shell and blades show signs of contact with solid surfaces, but no repairs have been needed as a result. My outdoor shell is pristine despite equal use. That is why I felt comfortable handing the controls over to an inexperienced friend. I checked, and parts are inexpensive and available at my local hobby shop, at Apples Stores, and online. Many videos on how to repair (easy) and modify the Drone are on YouTube.

    Capable: I can pilot the Drone to any point in space within its (~50 meter) range or land it with precision on its own box. For show-- I fly it close and then pet it as it hovers beside me before sending it off again. The videos are great and in HD.

    iPad: Of course, I really like my iPad Mini. Some users claim to get better flying range from an iPhone, but whatever range difference their may be has not been an issue for me.

    1 EPIC MasterPiece of Technology

    • Written by from Goodyear

    $300 well spent...
    precision of controls, quality, video, streaming, hoovering, flying,.... everything is very exceptional....
    first day could be a little hectic. but once you know the controls, fun is endless.
    there could be few things which could be fixed, but i'm not going to sit here and complaint, since everytime i take it out of the box, its nothing less then fun and a smile on my face. :)
    If you dont have it, you are missing out...
    GET IT AND ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!
