    1. Battery life stupid short, um like does four minutes sound short
    2. Wifi connection recognized only about once in 10 tries, keeps saying out of range, oh is four inches from the drone to the tablet just too far?
    3. Apps buggy and take forrrrrrrrrever to load. 20 minutes IKYN
    4. Reboot / restart time needed after time after time after time
    5. To do that you have to unplug the battery, oh such sophistication
    6 Either/or for the Wifi or internet connection. not both
    Life it too short for this idiocy

    It Has A Mind Of Its Own

    • Written by from Bedford

    I bought my AR Parrot 2.0 not too long ago, and it worked decently at first (despite the fact that it only flew where you wanted it to go half the time, and it wasn't a very controlled flight- it was impossible to fly indoors.) However after only having it for maybe 3 days it decided to take off 10 feet away from me ignoring my controls and it landed itself on the roof of my 3 level home. I had to get a ladder and climb to the top of the roof to get this thing. Then, a week or so later when I decided to test it again it did the same thing maybe 10 feet above my head. I decided to climb, and it went up to probably 300-600 feet where it then banked to the right and got stuck in the TOP of a pine tree. When I contacted the company for help, no reply even months later. I contacted them 10 times at least leaving the same phone number and email as before. Biggest waste of 300 dollars I've ever spent.

    Garbage!

    • Written by from West Yarmouth

    I was given a Parrot Drone for Christmas last year. It worked for a month or so, but now it does not recharge. I even bought a new battery for it, and it will not charge either. This is a $300.00 toy? It's a piece of junk. I advise others to stay away from this. It doesn't work right, and Parrot doesn't care a whit!

    Much overrated product!

    • Written by from SQUAMISH

    The AR Drone sounds like a great product- but is in fact too easy to crash and destroy or fly out of range, and is just a toy, and not a serious and useful tool. The HD Video camera produces very poor quality images, despite being HD; and the still camera only produces very low quality images. If you, like me, need an easy to control and reliable quadcopter that can take good still shots or videos, you need to get something much more sophisticated and reliable than the AR Drone.

    Buy this only if you own an android device

    • Written by from Longueuil

    Ar freeflight 2,0 and intuitive tilt control....is not available on apple device and nobody know why and for how long. This is a ridiculous situation for a serious company. They dont tell about this on the parrot web site and on apple store. Android device work very well with absolute control, i would not be surprise that apple over protective politic is the main responsible of this situation.

    Wait before buying this drone

    android 3
    apple 1

    Currently crippled for iOS devices.

    • Written by from ALBUQUERQUE

    This drone used to be great. It is now crippled on iOS as of some point in March when they "updated" their apps to disallow all the cool functionality. No "intuitive" flying modes are available. Don't know already how to fly RC stuff really well? Don't buy this.

    Was great, now poor due to software change

    • Written by from Beacon

    I've been a huge fan and booster of this project. The standout feature is the "absolute mode" that makes the drone easy to fly on the first attempt. That feature is no longer available on Parrot's latest iOS software. Apparently, according to the blogs, it is still available on Android devices. There seems to be no way to get the old iOS software. I would NOT recommend buying this product until the absolute mode software is available.
