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.

    I bought it as a gift for my brother. But I couldn't help opening it and playing for days. It is really cool, easy to get started I bought it as a gift for my brother. But I couldn't help opening it and playing for days. It is really cool, easy to get started and control. The only flaw is that the battery can only last 2 minutes after each full charge. This is really frustrating.

  • Rolling Spider Review

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    I own the Rolling Spider, and I think the minidrone needs a bit more protection, besides the wheel. Personal testing, but I droppe I own the Rolling Spider, and I think the minidrone needs a bit more protection, besides the wheel. Personal testing, but I dropped the drone a few times and the carbon-fiber (according-to-parent) rod that held the wheels together broke in half.
    Quite disappointing at this point.
    And, the battery can be improved WAY WAY more, the Rolling Spider barely survives at MOST 15 minutes of flight. I was seriously expecting more (but I lost most of my expectations at the sight of the 550 mAh battery)
    Besides these little defects, the Rolling Spider is a pretty easy-to-handle drone, thanks to the Android update which fixed the bug of taking pictures with the mini-camera under the drone.
    Speaking of which, the camera needs a bit of a fix: sometimes I get yellow pictures, sometimes they're fine.
    Looking SO forward to the Bebop Drone, hopefully with fixes for protection, battery and camera (one large feature I'm eager to check out)

    Oh and also, quite wished I owned the Jumping Sumo, might've helped me win my battle against mini-drones with my friends by wrecking them with the jump XD

    The flight time is too short (less than 5 min) and it takes about an hour for complete recharge. The flight is stable and nice but The flight time is too short (less than 5 min) and it takes about an hour for complete recharge. The flight is stable and nice but it does not last long. you can't possibly use it outside cause after 5 min you need to wait an hour for it to recharge!!
    Absolute waste of money.

My son went through 2 in about 3 days. Battery life is a joke. First one worked for a flight or two out of the box. Then suddenly only two propellers would work. Returned to Apple and got a new one. This one took off and never came back. Hit the landing button and emergency button when it was only 10 feet off the ground but it kept rising until it was out of sight. We have nothing to return. Parrot offered yet another one. No thanks Parrot. We learned a lesson already to never buy your products.
