Parrot Jumping Sumo App-Controlled MiniDrone

Jump and Roll Anywhere!


Meet the app-controlled drone that jumps over obstacles at your command.
  • Rolls at 4.5mph and turns 90° and 180° in the blink of an eye
  • Jumps up to 2.5' and always lands back on its wheels
  • Adjustable wheels for speed or stability
  • Wide-angle video camera to capture, stream and save photos and videos (Requires micro USB key. Not included)
  • Super-intuitive driving control via Wi-Fi® and FreeFlight 3 App through your smartphone or tablet
  • Connect to Parrot’s Pilot Academy to share your stats with other pilots

Perfect Jumps
Jumping Sumo is a responsive bot with a strong personality. It rolls, rushes, zig-zags, circles, takes turns at 90°, and in a flash, it leaps up to 2.5' high, clearing obstacles that stop other rolling drones in their tracks. And, thanks to its embedded camera, it plunges you into the heart of the action. Jumping Sumo has 3 control modes:
  1. Jumper: Jumps up to 2.5' in height and length, and always lands on its wheels.
  2. Kicker: Its spring enables it to push objects in its path.
  3. Auto-Balance: 2-wheel self balancing, like a "Segway".
Drive with Your Fingertips
Sophisticated technology enables more precise turns than any radio-controlled car. Jumping Sumo performs half- and u-turns in less than a second with its inertial unit. Depending on your driving, the MiniDrone expresses its mood with customizable sounds.

Faultless Directional Stability
Jumping Sumo features adjustable wheels for 2 distinct driving experiences. Whichever you choose, embedded smart technology ensures perfectly straight paths and extreme turns.
  1. Extend the wheels outward for greater stability at high-speed.
  2. Retract the wheels in "compact" mode to enhance agility and drive through narrow areas.
See What Your Drone Sees
Jumping Sumo is equipped with a wide-angle camera that streams live immersive views to your tablet or smartphone, letting you see the world from a drone's-eye view. Explore and navigate terrain inaccessible to other rolling drones—all without leaving your sofa. The FreeFlight3 app puts you in the driver's seat and connects to your drone through its own WiFi connection, giving you a wireless control range of up to 50 meters.

      I've had my Jumping Sumo for about 2 weeks now and it's been a lot of fun. I was up and running in minutes on my iPhone 5s running IOS 8.02. I've sent it out on "missions" to see what the dog is barking at, is my son still playing Xbox late at night and just to harass the rest of my family. The controls are pretty straight forward and with the adjustments in the app it will allow you to fine tune it to your liking. The average battery life for me has been about 15 – 20 minutes. I felt the amount of time you got on each charge was acceptable and once the new chargers come out you can always purchase another battery to get twice the time. I run mine on a combination of wood floors and low carpet. I did notice it doesn't move to well on thick carpet. The biggest issue I have been having is with disconnects. Although it's frustrating I am sure it will be something easily fixed with an update to either the app or firmware to the Sumo. I am able to get it to reconnect after a hard reset but that can get annoying.
      In general I think the Sumo is a lot of fun and I am sure the connectivity issue will be fixed pretty quickly. Once the SDK is released I am looking forward to see what other developers do with it.

      First I want to say that my teenager loved the Robot. It worked perfectly and is a fantastic and wonderful Robot for my son to pass his time..but that is where the problem comes in. Using the "Jumping" Robot more than 8 to 10 charges, causes the jump mechanism to break. My son used the product indoors and is very careful with his RC/Remote controlled products. He has many planes, cars, drones that he uses without any problems.
      We have gone through three of the Jumping Sumos hopping the next one would be better, but on all of them the jump mechanism broke way to soon... On the plus side, Brookstone was very supportive and replaced the unit w/o any issues. Their customer support was great!!! Unfortunately we had to request a refund on the third return.

      My son loved this product, but the jump mechanism was poorly designed and I am very surprised they released a product with this design flaw. Check other sites, this is a common problem with this product. The jumper breaks way to quickly and should be recalled as this is the main feature advertised on this "Jumping" Robot and it's flawed!!!

        Bought this for my 10 year old grandson. The "jumping" feature broke within less than 2 weeks after Christmas. We sent it back and got a replacement. This one broke within 5 days. Another one replaced, broke first day. So, here's the deal, if you want this to spy on people, set up cool courses and obstacles, this is a really great fun toy. If you're keen on jumping it, forget it. It will not work for long. My grandson said to forget about sending another one back. He's ok with just racing it around.

                  My tween daughter loved this Christmas gift until it stopped jumping after one day. She used it around the house with obstacle courses,spying on us, and checking for lost items under the couches. She was never rough with it or used it in a way it wasn't intended. We took it back to Brookstone today and got a replacement. This new one has lasted only 6 hours, and again it stopped jumping. She wants to go back tomorrow and get a replacement, but I'm not so sure--a refund is starting to look better. She loves it but having it break so easily is extremely frustrating.

                    I opened this present Christmas morning—couldn't figure out which app to download, ended up having to make an account twice. Kept having errors in the app, finally got it connected. Jumped it twice, then the mechanism jammed. Pressed the picture icon while driving around, heard a shutter sound. Later looked at the gallery and apparently it didn't take any pictures? Indoor use only?

                      We knew we were going to have fun with this but it's far better than we thought. My kids and I have been at it for about a week now and are still having a blast. We have set up an obstacle course in the basement and have time trials to see who finishes in the best time.
                      Our favourite thing about it is the way it leaps over an obstacle and lands perfectly on the other side.
                      Great product.
