See what the pilot sees—in high-definition video.
The AR.Drone 2.0 quadricopter with on-board Wi-Fi system puts you in control via your iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, Android™ or Nook devices. On-board cameras let you see in real time what the pilot sees as you complete complex flight maneuvers. But here’s the best part–while in flight, the copter's all-new front camera captures video and stills in sharp 720p HD that you can stream live or record to share with friends on YouTube®, the AR.Drone community or other sites with just a tap. Video records at a fast 30 fps through the big 92° wide-angle lens. Record the Wi-Fi live stream directly on your device or use optional recording on USB key (key not included).

Download the exclusive new AR.Race 2.0 piloting and sharing app and take flight.
The free AR.Race 2.0 app is now available at the iTunes® App StoreSM. The Android version is available at Google Play. The app lets you record flights and take HD videos or photos and save them in the piloting device. All flight data (altitude, speed, duration and place) can be saved, checked and shared with the online community. Coming soon: AR.Drone Academy™ for geolocation data of the best flight zones, and AR.Games, with its high-flying lineup of applications and games for your AR.Drone 2.0.

Patented new Absolute Control piloting mode makes it even easier to fly.
Just tilt your controller in the direction you want AR.Drone 2.0 to go–it’s that easy. And with a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis magnetometer and pressure sensor, your flights will be surprisingly stable at any altitude. (NOTE: The Absolute Control function is compatible with iPhone and iPad devices. The iPod touch 4G does not support this feature.) Feeling daring? Perform aerial acrobatics that leave ordinary RC helicopters in the dust, including barrel-rolls and flips!

*For iOS users, download FreeFlight from the App Store; Piloting via “joystick mode.” For Android users, please download AR.FreeFlight 2.2

At home indoors or out.

Once the battery was charged I was up and flying in no time. WHAT A BLAST! Great features for the novice to keep from crashing and very durable. I have hit some things hard, reboot and I am back up and flying in seconds. The WiFi range is limited (150 feet), but a real RC fan will find RC conversion kits on Ebay (as I did). The front facing camera is outstanding! My friends love the videos I shoot of their houses from 75 feet in the air.

Please stay away.
Bought q drone and after 1 week it lost connection w controller and fall down from 30ft (apparently it is not supposed to do that). We were lucky it didn't hit anybody. It took us over 30 days to get Repair Authorization after countless discussions with very rude staff (I particularly spoke to Nick who hanged up on me couple of times). In the meantime they send you emails - such as please do physical inspection of the drone - and we opened ticket because it was in pieces...? Bottom line triage and support are probably the lowest level I experienced in the industry. Given this is sensitive and innovative piece of technology, when you pair it up with exceptionally bad support...you are in for a very frustrating ride. And you know it will fail eventually. I will try to fix it and get rid of it, but hopefully this feedback will save somebody $400 frustrations.

      Comments about Parrot® AR.Drone® Quadricopter Power Edition:

      The AR Drone 2.0 was brand new. Unboxed it and read instructions. It worked for two short flights. On the third flight, it started to head off on its own. It refused to follow IPAD instructions. Drone then suddenly stopped and dropped on its own.

      From then on, it wobbled and would never respond to instructions. Flew up to 10 meters despite the instructed height restriction of 3 metres. Stuck in a tree and had to be retrieved. Despite levelling it and checking all controls, the next flight it did the same thing flying up to a roof and then collapsing. Next flight it goes over the neighbours garage and crashes.

      Tried everything recommended on the message boards, all to no avail. Now have reboxed it.

      It was a waste of money and Brookstone should reconsider carrying these inferior products. Now must look at warranty claim after a single day.

        Comments about Parrot® AR.Drone® Quadricopter Power Edition:

        This is my 2nd AR drone. My first one version 1 is still flying after almost 3 years of use (I would imagine this one will last at least as long) but this one is definitely better.

        It is much quieter, has way way better resolution of the primary camera, though I wish the secondary downward facing camera had a higher resolution. I use it to inspect my gutters and roof so I don't have to get up there all the time.

        The settings in the free flight app allow you make the controls as responsive as you like, so initially set them to something the allows you to make more movements with you phone/tablet until you feel you need more fine controls. This also slows down how fast the drone will move up/down/forwards/backwards.

        Love the flip though it does use a bit more of the battery power, the controls work a bit better that the first drone's and are more responsive.

        I use both android and apple devices, though my older iPhone 4 processor is too slow to be useful to control the drone. My first generation iPad on the other hand has no problems.

        Lift capacity is still very good, I can attach my Go-Pro and have it facing backwards or downwards (for gutter inspection).

        The Drone is very robust, crashed many times in a tree ;-) while trying to check if my apricots in the top of the tree where ripe (got too close).

        I am still working on figuring out the programmable API and trying to fly it using my pc.

        The video capture is awesome.

        Next purchase will be the gps module and another battery :-) I get about 13-17 minutes on average of flying time - less if I do lots of flips.

        All in all I can't see why anyone would not love this drone, except for my neighbors cat, she hates it, not sure why... :-)

          Comments about Parrot® AR.Drone® Quadricopter Power Edition:

          Okay you will have to bear with me here. It may sound weird that I am writing a review about what is definitely a marvel of technology and a testament to the engineers at parrot.

          What I ask you to focus on instead is that they have created such a fine piece of work that all the advertised features (the flip, easy control and stuff like that) is so seamless and easy to use that the most amazing aspect is the fact that I have taken this miracle of modern engineering and used it to take a whole bunch or aerial selfies.

          Yep. well I do love the awesome control and the ease of use through the app, the thing i mainly talk to my friends about is how cool the selfies are with it.

          Go figure.

                Great Product! The system is almost perfect - great for the first of its kind.
                I've had this product since Christmas and have flow it quiet extensively. I live in California near massive rolling windy hills, and have been totally impressed. Ive flown it in pretty windy conditions, even in heavy rain, and this drone has never failed me. I purchased the GPS you can buy for the version 2.0 and it works waaay better than I had expected. As for crashing goes I've put this thing through crashes in trees, bushes, parking lot, and even a swimming pool (yes... I'm not a very good pilot!) and it somehow lives on! the only con I can think of is that it will sometimes cut out and rise a couple of feet...not a problem if you're flying it outside. Overall, I would rate this a 4.5 out of 5.
