My boss recently gave me this Parrot AR Drone 2.0 which is such a really cool toy. It’s a 4 rotor remote controlled drone with 2 on board cameras, one of which is 720p. You’re able to fly by line of sight, but also by 1st person point of view (POV). It has a range of about 165 feet which is limited by the WiFi signal the drone broadcasts. You use your smartphone or tablet to connect to the drone’s wireless signal. Once connected, you use the onscreen controls or tilt your device to control the drone. You’re able to record HD video (and the lower quality down facing video) to an on board USB stick, or to your device. You’re also able to take still photos while flying. Several settings can be customized to limit things such as speed, tilt, and altitude. This product is very durable and can withstand hard crashes, but does not perform very well in windy conditions. It can handle breezes, but gusts of wind will carry the lightweight drone away from you. Luckily the drone is programmed to hover when it loses signal rather than continue moving away from you. Take off and landing is as simple as pushing a button, literally.
This is a great product and the price is very reasonable for what you’re getting.
