Every once in a while you run across something that is so cool you just have to have one! If you own an Android, iPhone, iTouch or iPad this is a must-have toy for the pilot in you!
This Parrot AR Drone Review is all about the coolest thing I have seen in like forever! It is the Parrot AR Drone quadro-copter that floats through the air effortlessly and is controlled by your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or Android phone. It is the most fun and technologically advanced remote control helicopter you will ever see.
First of all it does not come with a controller of any kind! You need to have an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or an Android with an app on it to control this fantastic device. And, believe it or not, controlling the Parrot AR Drone is very intuitive – but don’t worry – it has an emergency button that takes over if you make a mistake. In fact, it has the self-righting capabilities of another great toy – a Segway.
Live Video Feed On Your iPhone Screen
Get inside the cockpit of your AR Parrot Drone! Even meters away, keep control with your video remote thanks to a Wi-Fi connection. Two cameras are embedded, one on the front and one underneath facing the ground.
The switch between both cameras is very easy thanks to the button integrated in the application running on the iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad.
So take a short trip to your neighbors house, peek into their backyard and see what’s cooking!
But The Fun Doesn’t Stop There!
The real fun comes with all of the games you can play with the Parrot AR Drone Helicopter. The first one is a 1-4 player game called AR.RACE where you can set up a course with pylons and a finish line (inflatables) and have a race.
Better yet, the open source software has allowed developers to create even more fun games to play with your Parrot AR Drone.

How Do You Control The AR Parrot Drone?
It uses the tilt sensors in the iPhone to move forward, back or side to side, but flying the AR Drone is so intuitive that you will be having loads of fun in no time at all. Just think of all the friends you will make flying this around your neighborhood or local park!
I highly recommend the AR Drone if you like to surprise, entertain or annoy some of your friends and relatives!
