WI-FI Network RC Helicopter Controlled by iPod, IPhone, or Android Devices
Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter Controlled by iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, and Android Devices
If you want a true WI-FI grid device that you can fly with your friends, have battles, games and tournaments, then the AR Drone Quadricopter is the RC device of choice.
What happens when everyone gets the same RC toy for Christmas, they can’t play them together–the RC signals cross and are jumbled, and people loose control of their RC plane, copter, or car.
Not anymore! The WI-FI controlled networked Quadricopters are designed to only respond to a specific iPad, iPod, iPhone, or Android, even when there are hundreds in the vicinity.
This is the the only toy of its kind, and you can control it today.
The AR.Drone remote-control quadricopter is a an incredibly unique device it combines the best of many worlds, including modeling, video gaming, and augmented reality.
The AR.Drone is remote-controlled by your device.
It features a number of sensors, including a front camera, vertical camera, and an ultrasound altimeter. The AR.Drone can also be used in video games, such as AR.FlyingAce, a dogfight between two AR.Drones.
Control with Your Device
Thanks to its on-board Wi-Fi system, you can control the Parrot AR.Drone using an iPod touch, iPod touch, iPad, or Android device (OS 2.2 (Froyo) or higher, 3-inches wide minimum, and multi-touch).
The Parrot AR.Drone
The AR.Drone is the first quadricopter that can be controlled by an iPod touch, iPod touch, iPad, or Android device (OS 2.2 (Froyo) or higher, 3-inches wide minimum, and multi-touch).
High-technology Sensors Offer Simple Piloting
A mix of captors, wide-angle camera, high-speed camera and MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems), accelerometer, gyro sensors, and ultrasound sensor combine with a powerful on-board computer to make piloting the AR.Drone easy. Simply use your device and just tilt and touch to control the AR.Drone.
Connect and See
The Parrot AR.Drone generates its own Wi-Fi network to which you connect your device to control. The front camera view is streamed to your piloting device display.
The AR.Drone autopilot allows easy takeoff and landing. After takeoff, autopilot stabilizes the AR.Drone at an 80-centimeter altitude. When you remove your finger from your device, the autopilot function automatically puts the AR.Drone into stationary flight. Lost connection with the AR.Drone? Autopilot takes over again and stabilizes the device before attempting a soft and safe landing.
Indoor and Outdoor Hulls Included
The full hull shield protects the AR.Drone from impacts that occur during wild battles against enemies hidden in the rooms of the house. The streamlined colored hull is aerodynamic, allowing greater control outside.
A.R. Drone Quadricopter Review
These are easy to assemble, easy to operate, easy to do lots of absolutely amazing things and watch everything on your iPad as it streams from the video camera. But, remember, it is easy to crash, and is too expensive to be doing crazy things with.
Take your time and go through the training videos. Learn to maneuver it correctly and accurately before going all out with it.
