Parrot AR.Drone lets you see what the pilot sees.
With its built-in Wi-Fi system, you can control the Parrot AR.Drone using the built-in accelerometer in your iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad® device. On-board cameras (one forward facing, one facing down) let you see in real time what the pilot sees as you complete complex flight maneuvers.

Augmented reality turns the world around you into a video game. Chase a fighter jet through your house solo or with friends. Powerful processing lets the AR.Drone integrate computer generated images directly into its real-time streaming video to create an augmented reality gaming environment complete with air-to-air missiles, interactive targeting systems, and fiery explosions.

No ordinary RC helicopter, the Parrot AR.Drone uses military-grade technology for super-stable flight.
This four-rotor quadricopter employs dual ultrasonic altimeters, a three-axis accelerometer, multiple gyroscopes, and an embedded Linux platform to continuously stabilize itself during flight. AR.Drone can even compensate for turbulence caused by wind. In fact, it's so easy to control, anyone can fly it.

At home indoors or out.
Fly your Parrot AR.Drone anywhere you like. The included indoor hull protects the rotors during tight maneuvering around walls and furniture then removes easily to minimize weight and wind resistance during outdoor flights. The AR.Drone is made of carbon fiber and high-resistance plastic. Rechargeable LiPo batteries are included. Click Here for a quick start guide that will get you flying right away!

Order your Parrot AR.Drone from Brookstone today to experience video gaming on a whole new level!

I purchased this for my husband for Christmas. He's been looking at it for years and I had been researching the $300 full-priced one. The reviews on it were iffy. I read between the lines on the complaints and they basically led me to believe it just wasn't worth the price they were asking. Nothing really bad - just not working quite as well as you'd hope etc. I couldn't bring myself to drop the cash on the cool factor.

Then I read the reviews on the refurbished one. Confirmed my feeling on the "not worth it" factor of a "new" one. Great reviews. Everyone loved them and were having so much fun. I didn't hesitate when I confirmed that the warranty was the same.

My husband LOVES it. My kid loves it too. It's not HD, but we're just messing around with it, so who cares, right? The only issue is that if it gets too far away from the controller (iPad) it goes a bit haywire. This led to some tense moments where it divebombed our car and nearly got caught in a tree, but as it flew past, it got back under control and landed perfectly.

This thing is awesome and worth exactly what the refurbished item costs - but it's not worth the cost of a new one - HD camera or not.

I had my eye on the Parrot drone for some time, but the $300 price tag was a bit much. For [$] I got the refurb offered by Brookstone. Flew it about 5 times. Yeah it's fun, but there are some issues with it. The video sent to the iphone imho is not of sufficient quality to reliably control the craft. the new Parrot Drone announced at CES 2012 should correct this. the Sonic altimeter that the drone uses to maintain altitude - on mine at least- doesn't do it's job properly. it slowly looses altitude until it's idling on the ground. It also likes dropping onto people's heads when you pass over top of them. I have since moved up to 4 channel coaxial heli's sold in hobby stores. They cost a bit more than your typical heli, but less than the parrot and much more precise. Brookstone offers similar helis, but 3 channels, which are easier for beginners.

Comments about Refurb. Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter:

This was shipped to me with no battery.Had problems getting the run around with customer service. I was told that there was 1 battery here in Phoenix (only 2 stores here) called them and no batteries anywhere.I was sent one via mail,turns out it was for 2.0. Now no charger,purchased charger out of pocket.Now I am good to go right? Wrong! Turns out it had a bogus IP address and had to be updated and reprogrammed. I had to much money into it to return it. Gave the 1.0 to a friend and purchased a 2.0 through someone else.I guess there is a reason for the saying you get what you pay for!

    Comments about Refurb. Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter:

    Battery lasts no more than 20 seconds on a full charge. Called Brookstone for help and they referred me to the manufacture. Filled out warranty request online and never got a response. Called them a week later and they told me that I would need to fill out the request on line. Luckily I kept the confirmation number from when I filled it out. They said someone would contact me via email within 48 hrs. Within 30 seconds of hanging up they sent me an email saying they couldn't process the request because I didn't give them a copy of my receipt. I replied to the email with a copy of the receipt and never got a response. I called them again two days later and got the exact same run around. Said they never received the receipt. Asked them for the email address I could resend it to since replying to their email didn't work. He gave me an email address and so I tried to resend but it came back saying it wasn't a valid email address... All of this while I was on the phone with their service department. He said he would take care of it and send me a new battery and that I would get an email from them with the details. About 30 minutes after we hung up he sent me an email saying "we did not receive your information" and telling me that I needed to initiate a warranty request through their email. Same old run around I've gotten for the past two weeks. I'm at my wits end and not sure what to do next. This was not a cheap item and it hasn't worked since day one. What a mistake this purchase was. DO NOT BUY!!!!

    Comments about Refurb. Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter:

    Fairly steady flight in light or no wind conditions. Can be flown in windy conditions as long as it can overcome being pushed out of position, however isn't as stable. Great for inspecting roofs, chimneys, etc in no wind conditions or no sun (heat from roof can make it difficult to manuever).

    The one problem that is more the fault of iPad/iPhone is the signal is easily lost and control is lost if the drone gets too far away. iPad/iPhone are famous for poor wireless capability and you can lose your Drone (paint your phone number on it). Ask me how I know.

    Lastly, if buying the refurbished Drone, check to see that you are getting the Drone 2.0, not the older version. Brookstone doesn't make clear exactly what you're getting, but other vendors selling the refurb are usually selling the old version, not the 2.0

      Purchased two. One performed as advertised right from the box, unfortunately, despite numerous attempts the other would immediately flip over and crash. Will see how they warranty this and repost.
      Review only allows yes and no answers so I must enter no as recommending product to a friend and will give Brookstone medium grade pending address of flipping issue. Hoping to upgrade review.

        Although refurbished, it was packaged as new. Everything was included. The Drone flew immediately and is so much fun. There is a newer version 2.0 of this quadcopter available, but the refurbished version 1.0 is just as much fun and the price is right!

        This is something my boyfriend has wanted since they came out but they were too expensive for my budget. Thanks to Brookstone having refurbished at a lower price and with a warranty I was able, without hesitation, to snatch one up quick and now I am the best girlfriend ever.
        Thank you
