Parrot Rolling Spider App-Controlled MiniDrone

Flies, flips, climb walls, and rolls across ceilings!


Rolling Spider flies anywhere, performs complex aerobatics, climbs walls, and rolls across the ceiling. How cool is that?
  • 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
  • Removable wheels let drone roll up and down walls and across the ceiling
  • Take snapshots with the embedded vertical camera

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.

                              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.

                                Visited Brookstone in Indy because my son wanted one of those tiny RC helicopters, and found this instead. It was a little more money, but a much cooler toy, and according to the information posted, our son's Android tablet was 100% compatible so we made the purchase...
                                only to get home and find out that even if you're running the required Android version, only a small number of devices are compatible, and our son's was not.

                                The drone itself worked great with my Android smartphone, but since I feel the store & manufacturer could be a but more upfront as opposed to misleading about the compatibility,I can't really recommend this product without a lot of research. Right now it was just a big waste of time & money for us.

                                    Compatible with my iPhone 5 and I had no issues with the app and set up. For a minidrone it performed very well. Since it is a minidrone and not a full drone, one cannot expect it to maneuver and operate the same way. I love my Parrot Rolling Spider App-Controlled MiniDrone and would recommend it to anyone who is a drone or minidrone enthusiast. I would also recommend it to anyone who is just starting out with minidrones as it's usability is great for beginners along with experts.

                                    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.
