The Parrot AR.Drone got unveiled at CES 2010 earlier this year and has found immediately a ton of fans around the world. Now French Parrot is actually selling the AR.Drone and you can buy yours for $299.99 on Amazon now.
The Parrot AR.Drone is a quadricopter piloted with an iPhone, iPod touch or an iPad that carries two cameras that deliver live video feed onto your iPhone. I bet the U.S. military already ordered a ton of these.
Simply use your iPhone or iPod Touch 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 iPod Touch or iPhone to control. The front camera view is streamed to your piloting device display.
Autopilot The AR Drone autopilot allows easy take off and landing. After take-off, autopilot stabilizes the AR Drone at a 800mm altitude. When you remove your finger from the iPhone/iPod Touch 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. Watch the video below, which will make your purchasing decision very easy.
