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.

      Great fun but small concerns

      By Bill O'Leary

      from Smyrna, DE

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Easy to charge battery
      • Easy to fly
      • Easy To Put Wheels On
      • Great Hovering Control

      Cons

      • Hard To Control Laterals
      • Hard To Figure Out Camera
      • no operating instructions

      Best Uses

      • Pure Entertainment
      • Relaxation From Stress

      I love playing with it but am pretty bummed that it did NOT come with a decent set of instructions on how to operate it. I still have not been able to figure out how to take pictures with it. I am completely impressed with how easy it is to get used to flying but wish it had a longer battery life to actually allow for more flight time once I get the stabilization process down pat...

      Fun little drone

      • Easy to fly
      • great indoors and out
      • Small learning curve

      Cons

      • Battery life

      Best Uses

      • Exercising My Dog

      Love this little drone. Works well indoors and out. My dog chases it all over the yard. Ease of getting spare parts. I broke the second day I owned it due to running it into a ceiling fan on high(My fault). You can order every part on the drone and even rebuild in a different color. Would give a 10 if it wasnt for the battery. I would love a little more battery life but all in all, it's a Great little drone.

      Parrot Rolling Spider App-Controlled Min

      By Red Rover

      from Orange County

      Pros

      • Nice Flight But Short

      Cons

      • Battery Life Worse Ever
      • Would NOT recommend

      Best Uses

        Would not recommend this item….battery truly failed twice. Company
        wanted so much detail that I simply returned it. Until the company can resolve issues with failing batteries and short flights, I would not give a star rating above 1 or 2…don't buy it until those resolutions are made. Their support is good until you want something replaced…then the support turns laborious and "proof is necessary rather than the customer's words."

              Works great for a little bit of time the battery holds. Flys seamlessly with free flight app. Battery life is horrible. The propellers are thin and bend real easy.

              Good Drone Bad Battery

              By Siz the mini drone pilot

              from Chicago, IL

              Pros

              • Easy To Fly And Control

              Cons

              • Bad Battery

              Best Uses

              • Fly Indoors

              This is a very cool miniature remote control flying device. I had few similar models before such as helicopters and small planes but none of them was as proficient as the spider mini drone. It's extremely easy to fly compared to its counterparts. The camera on bottom is ok I just wish it had a preview function and you can record live video from the camera. Now you can only take still shots and there's no way to see the view before taking pictures. The biggest downside is the short battery life. You only get 8 minutes of flying time on a full battery and it takes about a hour to charge fully. My battery actually went bad where it won't hold a charge at all, and I only had it for a couple weeks. I ordered a new battery as well some other spare parts the same week I purchased the drone for precaution and haven't received the items yet. That's over a month ago. And when I contacted support they wanted me to send my whole drone back to them for a bad battery. So that's another downside, the support and shipping department are not good at all at least here in the states.
