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.

      I had been interested in the jumping sumo since I first heard about the product coming out. This was something the kids and I could play with in the house on rainy days or during the winter time for some fun. The only good thing I can say about the product is the set up easy., that's the only good thing about it. After having this product one day and using it to just jump and jump over the kids toys, the jumping mechanism started sticking, this product never was exposed to moisture or any sort of wet conditions this product was only used inside the house. And on the second day we recharged the unit and on the first jump the jumping mechanism finally locked completely up. This unit was never dropped or missed used in anyway, I am very disappointed with the durabilityof the product. I returned it for a full refund. Will never purchase again.

        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.

              • Jumping
              • Stair climbing

              Took me a few minutes to get the hang of controlling it as you don't steer it left and right in a traditional way.
              Very easy to set up on android phone and my iPad.
              First person view is great - enabled me to jump it up two flights of stairs, then go in to another room and jump it on to the bed!
              Hours, and hours of fun to be had.
              USB be battery charging? Hope someone brings out a spare charger, as it lasts well but you just want more and more time with it.
              HIghly, highly recommended.

                Really enjoy the unit - new concept, fun twist on the remote controlled vehicle. Great video feed; takes some practice to learn and master the controls. Unit is responsive to the controls (sometimes too sensitive). The jump feature will startle you at first - and anyone around it when it jumps.

                worth the money

                      I purchased this device for 160 dollars and it was worth every penny of it. The camera is fast and allows the user to pilot it without being in the same room. My only problem is the time it takes to charge the battery is a bit long. This is a great gift for any rc lovers out there.
