The white Rolling Spider MiniDrone from Parrot can fly, roll along the floor, climb walls, and even traverse the ceiling. It is a 5.5"-diameter mini quadcopter that includes a pair of removable wheels for added fun. No special controller is required - the Rolling Spider is operated by a mobile app and your smartphone. Simply tilt your device to maneuver the MiniDrone. A sophisticated multi-sensor flight computer lets you perform 360s, U-turns, flips, barrel rolls, and more without stalling or loosing stability.

The Rolling Spider has a top speed of around 11 mph and a Bluetooth wireless range of about 66'. The battery is removable and will give you up to 8 minutes per charge (6 minutes with the wheels). You can recharge it with USB or a separately available charger.

The wireless link uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE (lower energy), and requires a mobile device with this capability. It can be controlled from the free MiniDrones FreeFlight 3 app for iOS and Android - Windows support expected soon - or hackers can develop custom software using the SDK (software development kit) available from Parrot.

Once the Rolling Spider's booted up and ready to fly, a pair of LED "eyes" turn green letting you know you're good to go.

Note: Please address all technical issues directly to Parrot. Contact technical support by phone at 877-9Parrot (877-972-7768).

Perform Aerial Acrobatics
Flips, barrel rolls, and more are all possible thanks to the MiniDrones FreeFlight 3 app. With this app you can:
  • Perform half- and u-turns in one swipe
  • Do ​​front and rear loops in one click
  • With its removable wheels, it runs from floor to ceiling and walls
Safety First
The propellers are designed to automatically cut-off in the event of a collision for safe indoor flying
Weighs 1.9 Ounces
The MiniDrone by itself weighs 1.9 ounces while the full assembly with wheels weighs 2.3 ounces
Computerized Stabilization System
The Linux based flight computer takes inputs from multiple sensors to keep the aircraft safely in the air regardless of twists and turns. Sensors include:
  • A 3-axis gyroscope to determine if the MiniDrone is level or not
  • A 3-axis accelerometer that records changes in speed
  • A pressure sensor to obtain altitude data
  • An ultrasonic sensor to increase precision when flying close to the ground
  • A vertical video camera shooting 60 fps to measure speed and direction by comparing the new image to the previous one
Free-fall Take-off Mode
The engines start automatically when you drop it (the MiniDrone must be switched on)
Take Snapshots
With the vertical camera you can take snapshots at 0.3-megapixel resolution using a photo button in the FreeFligt 3 app. They are stored internally in the Rolling Spider - which has memory for several hundred - and can be retrieved using the app
