Parrot AR.Drone Review


Parrot's AR.Drone was the surprise hit of CES 2010, breaking the French company out of its Bluetooth prison and instead taking to the skies with an iPhone-controlled quadricopter. Reminiscent of something out of a William Gibson novel, the AR.Drone...

Although Parrot’s augmented reality dogfight ideas certainly have merit, they’re not the winning feature of the AR.Drone. The units themselves are simply too expensive – and thus rare – to make it likely you’ll come across another owner, which means...

Parrot AR.Drone - Augmented Reality + Remote-Controlled Quadrocopter


Unlike most remote-controlled toys, the AR.Drone uses the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as the remote control; and it doesn't need to be in your line of sight to work. How durable is this quadrocopter? We find out.

Review: Parrot AR.Drone


We've seen the AR.Drone floating around multiple events this year including CES but we never really got a chance to play with it until this week. Before I get into my review, I'm going to tell you a story. People ask me all the time “What's the coolest...

Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter


Parrot's AR.Drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that uses Wi-Fi technology to connect to an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

It's a flying quadricopter controlled via an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad, straightforward setup, easy to control for stable flight indoors

Almost impossible to control with any accuracy outdoors with even slight wind, 12 minute battery life, expensive price, questionable build quality considering it does fly, and therefore crash from time to time

The Parrot AR.Drone quadricopter is a toy packed with technology that is surprisingly stable and intuitive to fly. Yes, the Parrot AR.Drone is expensive, has mediocre battery life and becomes an out of control missile if used with any sort of wind. It...

Parrot AR.Drone review


But flying indoors proves tricky and may frustrate inexperienced pilots. We first saw the Parrot AR.Drone at CES in January, and you can buy one from HMV for £299 inc VAT. For a video review of the toy, click here.

After becoming comfortable with the Parrot AR.Drone's controls and weathering some crashes, the helicopter is a fun toy to fly. Fractures in the indoor hull were frequent during the learning period, but the rest of the toy was quite durable. The...

Parrot AR.Drone first look


We take a look at this battery-powered quad-copter controlled with a smartphone app.

It’s fun to fly and a good deal less smelly and noisy than model airplanes of the past. The sharing factor is important and adds a new dimension, but battery life is a limitation and at $49.95 each they will add substantially to the cost.

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 review


The Parrot AR. Drone 2.0 is a small flying device with an on-board HD video camera, which is controlled with a smartphone and can record both video and GPS data. Does this sound like the coolest gadget ever, or an invasive surveillance tool that should...
