  • 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.

            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.

                        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.

                              This is the best mini drone ever! I fall in love with this rolling spider the monent I unpacked it. The quality of this drone is the best in market. You get a lot of bang for you buck thats for sure. This thing is built to take a few beatings too. My only reason to give this a four star is because of its battery life. I just wish parrot would make the battery last atleast 20 minutes.

                              Its the perfect balance of having the larger model and now having the smaller inside Drone mini.
                              The only complaint is the "High Pitched" sound it makes.
                              I have other small indoor helicopters and they don't have the same sound. My wife hates it when I fly indoors so now I have to wait till she is out.
                              I actually can understand her opinion as if I was just listening and not playing, this constant noise would possibly drive me crazy as well.

                                    This would be a great little toy. However, after about 3-5 flights, the battery only lasts 30 seconds, or less. And that's after recharging for over 1.5 hours! I have tried every potential resolution; not updating the software, only using low powered chargers, reloading the app. I have returned it to Brookstone and swapped for a new one FIVE TIMES. Each one has the same problem. I have called and spoke with Parrot support, who acknowledge that "a few" of the mini drones have had battery issues. They assure me that I just am having bad luck.
