The Parrot AR.Drone has been voted one of the Top 50 Must-Have Gadgets for 2011 seen at The Gadget Show Live, by popular presenter Jason Bradbury, who featured the high profile product in his personal top 10. ‘You don’t get any more gadgety than this, a wireless camera mounted on four helicopter blades that can be remotely controlled by an iPhone, while streaming video back to the handset. Throw in an augmented reality shoot-em-up game and you have the last word in 21st-Century toyology’…… Flying Toys are delighted to announce an agreement with Parrot to distribute the amazing AR.Drone in the UK. With around ten million hits on their YouTube channel and almost ten thousand user videos available online, the Parrot AR.Drone undoubtedly represents an unprecedented internet phenomenon for any flying toy. The world’s first quadricopter designed to be flown indoors or outside with an iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad™ using touch screen Wi-Fi® technology, the Augmented Reality Drone features an autopilot facility to take itself off, hover at a predetermined height, and land automatically upon command. Simply tilt the iPhone® to make the model travel forwards, backwards and sideways, left or right. Having mastered these basic techniques, slide the virtual throttle forward to climb and hold in a hover, then press land to safely descend. Diagonal movements will make the AR.Drone spin slowly in either direction, with a clever variable rate adjustment for increased control. Release
