Parrot AR Drone 2.0 overview

  • 1Description

The Blue and orange Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter 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 lightweight AR.Drone 2.0 includes an outdoor hull and an indoor hull. Plus, the AR.FreeFlight Control App allows you to use your iOS or Android mobile device to operate the AR.Drone 2.0. The device has built-in Wi-Fi b/g/n as well, which provides a wireless range of up to 165'. 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 or you can insert a USB flash drive into the quadcopter and record directly onto that. The AR.Drone 2.0's other features include an autopilot system, access to the AR.Drone Academy, multiple sensors for smooth flying and stability in the air, an onboard 32-bit ARM Cortex A8 1GHz processor with DSP and support for acrobatic maneuvers including flips and barrel rolls. The AR.Drone 2.0 is also compatible with other apps including Director Mode, AR.Race 2, AR.Rescue 2 and Astro Drone.

Pressure sensors will automatically correct and maintain a still position regardless of altitude and wind up to 15 mph
Pressure sensor brings stability up to an unlimited altitude (±10 Pa)
The AR.Drone 2.0 uses an algorithm to interpret measurement when hovering over different terrain and conditions
The AR.Drone 2.0 autopilot feature uses embedded sensors to ensure easy take-off and landing
3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer
Ultrasound sensors provide ground altitude measurement up to 19.7' (6 m) above the ground
Built-in 3D compass and dynamic wind estimation sensor
A 3-axis gyroscope affords more dynamic piloting maneuvers (2000°/sec precision)
Onboard 32-bit ARM Cortex A8 1GHz processor with 800 MHz video DSP
Joypad Mode (ON) allows control via your mobile device's touchscreen joystick
Joypad Mode (OFF) allows control through physically tilting your mobile device
Absolute Flight Control Mode allows control through tilting, but uses the pilot as a reference point
