  • Flies smoothly in all directions
  • Sophisticated stabilizing autopilot system
  • Easy to pilot with touch controls through free smartphone and tablet app
  • Perform forward, backward, and sideways flips

Amazing Acrobatics
Rolling Spider is an ultra-compact drone controlled by smartphone. It flies indoors and outdoors with surprising speed and stability. Using the free app, FreeFlight 3, this ultra-light 4-propeller drone performs half- and u-turns with a single swipe and does front and rear loops in one click. Attach the included wheels, and Rolling Spider "drives" along floors, up walls, and even across the ceiling. And because it's equipped with a propeller shut-off function in case of a collision, the MiniDrone can fly indoors fly without harming furniture or walls.

55 Grams of Technology
Rolling Spider is 6 times lighter than AR.Drone, yet it employs the same flight stability and autopilot system based on a 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer. Think of it as a super-concentrated version of Parrots impressive array of drone technologies. Rolling Spider features:
  • Pressure sensor for flight altitude control
  • Ultrasonic sensor for precision flying near the ground
  • 60fps vertical camera that measures the speed comparing previous image
Super Easy to Fly
All the sophisticated technology and in-flight sensor data make Rolling Spider one of the world's most stable drones. It has an exclusive free-fall take-off mode:
  • Its engines start when you drop it.
  • Capture aerial views with the vertical mini-camera.
  • As soon as you take it in your hands, LED turn red indicating that its propellers remain stopped to keep you safe.
Control It All with Your Smartphone or Tablet
Parrot's FreeFlight 3 app offers an intuitive control from your favorite touch-based device. It connects via Bluetooth Smart wireless technology to your Rolling Spider, giving you a wireless control range of up to 66'. With FreeFlight, you can perform flips and other aerobatics, capture in-flight photos, and more.

    Right out of the box, this RTF quad mini drone is a real treat. It features a GYRO stabilized self-hover in the event of releasing the controls. User friendly Free-Flight 3 app for iOS and Android, connects via Bluetooth 4.0, built in camera capable of still photo and video to on board storage, updates to firmware by connecting to any USB port with included ULTRA fast DATA connect cable that is also used to download photos or video. LiPo hard shell battery charges in 1 to 3 hours (depending on USB power output) and gives you approximately 10-15 min flight time (I got almost 20 min per charge) has a DROP -N-FLY mode that is SUPER COOL! With a double tap on the free flight controls it will do a flip maneuver in whatever direction you choose.

    This Rolling mini spider is a treat to fly has several user settings for flight controls (depending on pilot skill) and a Rolling mode for rolling across floors walls and ceiling. The Drop-n-Fly mode is so easy to use it flies itself!! Set the Drop-n-fly mode by one button on the control screen and toss the Rolling Spider into the air... IT WILL TAKE OFF IN MID DROP AND HOVER IN PLACE! Until you are ready to take the controls.
    This unit is VERY stable in flight as well as very durable ( I took mine to max altitude about 30ft. and did an emergency cut out of motors and was fine it has been built to take the abuse of a crash over and over. SUPER light agile and VERY FAST!!

    Having bought numerous products from Brookstone without a problem including the Parrot Jumping Sumo Drone which is incredible and we love it, we were very, very disappointed in this. Child friendly? The motor casings ran so hot they burnt my 5yr olds fingers when she picked it up.

    Breeze from the aircon in the house moves it around at will, it's not got enough power even for indoor flight if you have aircon. Also Constant disconnection with my samsung S5 phone means it's going back.

    Rolling wheels? Great but just one problem - it won't go backwards! Rockets up walls with them, but not with us controlling it.
    We love the Parrot Jumping Sumo, but not this. Very disappointed, only hope new bebop drone is better.

    Good product - Could be better

    By Dave

    from New Brunswick, NJ

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Easy to fly
    • Quick to learn

    Cons

    • No Photo Preview
    • Poor Instructions Include

    Best Uses

      Easy to learn how to fly. Very easy to maneuver.Wheels help to protect blades on crashes.
      No preview of the camera on your phone. You don't know what you're taking a photo of until you actually download it. For the cost, this feature could of easily been included. Had to go on their website to find out how to view the photos.

      Super Fun Drone!

      By perlguy

      from St. Louis, MO

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • A lot of fun
      • Easy to fly
      • Fun for the whole family
      • Safe To Fly Inside

      Cons

      • Battery life

      Best Uses

      • Simple Flying Fun

      The Rolling Spider is a great drone that is very fun and easy to fly. However, I don't recommend taking the "training wheels" off of it until you are comfortable flying it. The wheels provide all-around protection for the drone, so if you have a little mishap, no harm done.

      So far, I have had my drone for about 2 weeks and I have had a blast flying it!

      The only thing that I wish it had was a little bit better battery life. It is so fun to fly, I hate having to recharge it!

      I think that you should get one today!

                I use the product indoors, and it is very light weight, easy to fly, and it is very fun to fly around. The battery life isn't so good but it is ok cause I don't use it for more then 5 minutes anyways.

                              • Rolling Or Flying

                              I own many drones including the Parrot A.R Drone 2.0. I love these little flying robots from Parrot, flying them is so much fun. After receiving this Parrot MiniDrones Rolling Spider I was surprised of how small it is without the rolling wheel this mini drone fits in the palm of your hands. This done comes with the wheel detached but it took 5 seconds to assemble it however it may be a little tricky to clip it onto the drone and the manual is not very clear on this process but the videos online was very helpful, my recommendation is to watch the videos online to get familiar with the drone and to learn some tricks. I love the fact that this drone can be charged using a standard micro USB cable, The battery life may only be 8 minutes which is on the short side but after flying it for a while, 8 minutes is enough time to enjoy flying the drone. The drone is controlled using the Free Flight 3 app for both iOS and Android using bluetooth, even with bluetooth I could fly this drone around my house without any issue both indoors and outdoors even the connection stays strong I never lost bluetooth connection between my iPhone and the drone. The included camera on the drone is low resolution but a camera is not usually found on drones this small so this was a nice addition and takes decent enough photos and all you have to do is plug the drone into your computer to retrieve your photos. The best thing about this little drone is the app lets you customize how to control the drone, you can use the tilt function or touch screen joystick and performing flips and rolling on walls and ceilings. I enjoyed using this drone while rolling on the ground it was so easy to control and performs like a small R/C car.
