In action: Parrot AR Drone 2.0




So here’s a demo video of the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 as requested by some of our readers. It’s a mix clip of recording of the Drone 2.0 and also aerial shots taken by the onboard HD camera of the Drone itself.

We pushed the Drone to its limits and attempted some maneuvers — see it flip 360-degrees at 1:15, hover as high as 30-feet (although it was already too windy at that height), and fly over the fountains.

Twice we lost control of the Drone, once after it flew beyond our WiFi range and second time after the signal got cut off by that huge slab of boulder in the middle of High Street.

You will also see the secondary camera that faces downwards but the quality is very low (VGA).

We were able to manage around 10 minutes of flight time on a single full charge of the battery. In previous tests, we managed to hook up a Lumia 925 on the Drone and also have it record videos but the resulting clips were very shaky. We’ll do another round with the GoPro Hero 3 next time.

    Isn’t it too risky flying it out beyond its range or with obstacles? Imagine that falling 30ft from the sky. :|

      Hi Sir Fun! No need to worry if you exceed the maximum range limit of its wifi signal because it will automatically shift to auto pilot mode which means the drone will stay on its place and will decrease its altitude up to 6 feet until it reconnects to the iOS/Android device.

    This Quadrocopter uses Wifi so it might be best when your using a Phone Hotspot then a Fixed Wifi so that the range is more flexible even a pocket wifi would make the range flexible as well

      Hi Sir Zander, Parrot AR Drones don’t need an internet signal. It produces Wifi signal for it to connect on iOS/Android devices. It’s the remote connection between the Quadrocopter and iOS/Android devices. You can control it on a wider range than other usual remote controlled helicopters. It can fly up to 165 feet altitude and the distance is up to 50 meters according to the users device. (you can adjust the altitude on the AR Drone App settings). Hope you guys can visit us at PISMO Level 6 Shangri-la Plaza East Wing to know more about the Parrot AR Drones! Thank You!!
