The red Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter Power Edition is a remote controlled, four-propeller quadcopter with an integrated HD 1280 x 720p camera that supports video and still image capture while in flight. The AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition includes a lighter outdoor hull for optimal performance as well as an indoor hull that features prop guards. The AR.FreeFlight Control App allows you to use your iOS or Android mobile device to operate the aircraft from the ground as well as capture video and still photos. The device has built-in Wi-Fi to facilitate connection to your smartphone or mobile device, which provides a wireless range of up to 165' depending on conditions. You can use a joystick on your mobile device touchscreen or you can simply tilt and turn your mobile device to control the quadcopter.

The camera footage can be streamed directly to your mobile device using Wi-Fi for low resolution recording, can be recorded in full quality by inserting a USB flash drive or the Parrot Flight Recorder directly into the AR.Drone for onboard, in-flight recording. The AR.Drone 2.0's other notable features include an autopilot system, access to the AR.Drone Academy, multiple sensors for smooth flying and stability in the air, an onboard 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU running Linux, and support for acrobatic maneuvers including flips and barrel rolls.

    Parrot PF721005 reviews

    AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter Power Edition (Red) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Erratic Worked great for about two weeks and then today it just took on a life of its own, soared upwards and forward - completely out of control, and now it is gone. I've read lots of complaints about this malfunction since we lost it, and I'm offering a fair warning that the company does not care and you will likely be out of $+ from no fault of your own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome drone so far We haven't been able to run it outside yet, but this has been perfect for my 13 yo who is a beginner...
