Easily controlled by Wi-Fi using a Smartphone or Tablet, the latest Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition collection offers enthusiasts a choice of three classic camouflaged styles comprising sand, snow or jungle liveries, inspired by desert, arctic and rain forest landscapes.
Each individual product is supplied attractively packaged in its own specially designed printed carton with a distinctive indoor and outdoor hull, plus one pair of black propellers and another customised pair of propellers to compliment the colour scheme.
The exclusive Elite Edition packaging includes one 1000mAh lithium polymer battery to provide up to twelve minutes of flying time, plus a convenient mains charger with international adaptors. Featuring a high definition camera with a video recording facility, plus flight data sharing, a patented piloting mode, and an innovative pressure sensor for increased stability at any altitude, Parrot’s amazing AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition quadricopter can even perform four axis flips on command!
HD 720p CAMERA: The AR.Drone 2.0 is equipped with a high definition front camera that will let the pilot view exactly what the AR.Drone 2.0 sees, just as if they were in the pilot seat. Download the free AR.FreeFlight 2.0 application (available on the App Store and the Android Market) and take control of the AR.Drone 2.0 in just seconds. The user-friendly control interface will appear over the video feedback streamed straight from the AR.Drone 2.0 with no latency, thanks to its self-generated Wi-Fi network. The automatic stabilisation system of the AR.Drone 2.0 will ensure an image of high quality indoors, or outdoors even in light wind conditions. Whether using a Smartphone or a Tablet, the pilot will see a clean, crystal clear image straight from the sky.
RECORD AND SHARE: AR.FreeFlight 2.0 lets the pilot record video and pictures whilst flying the AR.Drone 2.0. Simply press the record button to start and end the recording, and use the dedicated photo/video section of the application to watch what you’ve shot immediately after you have landed. No cables, SD card or PC required. Everything has already been pre-programmed in your Smartphone/Tablet, so that can watch your performance instantly. For users wishing to shoot longer videos, without using their Smartphone/Tablet memory, a USB plug is located inside the AR.Drone 2.0 for easy USB recording. Shoot as much footage as you want, and share easily on YouTube or Picasa when finished, thanks to the embedded options of the application.
THE FLIP: A unique acrobatic move specifically designed for the AR.Drone 2.0. Press a button to perform an impressive forward or backward flip, or barrel roll as you are flying. The embedded navigation system of the AR.Drone 2.0 will automatically recover, enabling any new pilot to enjoy this move!
ABSOLUTE CONTROL PILOTING MODE: A brand new and exclusive piloting mode, patented by Parrot for the AR.Drone 2.0. The Absolute Control piloting mode makes life much easier for beginners, by only using your device position as a point of reference. The result is simple, regardless of which direction the front of the AR.Drone 2.0 is facing, you just have to tilt your Smartphone in any direction to see the AR.Drone 2.0 fly towards it. A beginner can now become an expert pilot in a matter of minutes.
HIGHER AND FASTER: The AR.Drone 2.0 offers unique stability, thanks to its embedded sensors and navigation system. Any movement not solicited by the pilot will be automatically corrected by the AR.Drone 2.0 to maintain a perfectly still position in the air, while you are not controlling it. Push it, fly it in windy conditions (up to 15 m/h), and it won’t move an inch until you decide to make it move. Thanks to its new pressure sensors, the AR.Drone 2.0 will provide this automatic stability even further, by making sure it remains stable whatever the altitude.
