The Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Quadcopter Elite Edition is the ultimate in Wi-Fi Controlled Quadcopters. It offers its users the choice of 3 camouflaged classic styles: jungle, snow, and sand. This is of course inspired by rainforest, arctic, and desert landscapes, respectively. This excellent unit is attractively packaged in a specially designed and printed carton. It also has a distinct indoor & outdoor hull, a pair of black propellers, as well as an additional pair of customized propellers that compliment the drone’s color scheme.
This exclusive Elite Edition is packaged with a 1000mAh lithium battery that gives a maximum of 12 minutes flying time. The battery also comes with a battery charger and international adapters. Important features include an HD camera with video recording capacity; flight data sharing capacity; a pressure sensor that increases stability regardless of altitude; and patented piloting mode. The AR. Drone 2.0 can also perform 4 axis flips on demand. With these excellent features, the AR Drone 2.0 deserves serious consideration for any drone hobbyist.
The AR. Drone 2.0 Elite Edition is easily controlled by Wi-Fi with a tablet or smartphone, and the primary app used for flying and piloting it is the AR.FreeFlight. The AR. Drone 2.0 can be used with or without an accelerometer as well, and the vertical camera can easily be switched to the frontal camera.
Another exciting feature is the Director Mode, which enables you to program various automatic movements in order to be able to shoot awesome videos rivalling any film director! Its firmware eliminates most “hiccups” caused by wind conditions as well as sudden stops. This results in outstandingly smooth videos that eclipse the capability of other models. You can fine-tune elements such as color saturation, white balance, and exposure; you can also select various presets that can serve your individual video recording needs
The HD front camera also allows you to see exactly what it sees. The drone has a user-friendly interface that appears over its video feedback, which, thanks to its self-generated WiFi network, is streamed right from the video camera without any latency. Another fine feature is the auto-stabilization system, which is designed to withstand and mitigate light wind conditions to ensure a high quality image both indoors and outdoors. This results in a clean and crystal clear image on your mobile device.
Parrot has also patented the exclusive and brand new piloting mode. This Absolute Control pilot mode is a boon for beginners, because it only uses the position of the device as its point of reference. Thus, regardless of the direction the drone is facing, the user only needs to tilt the tab or smartphone on any direction in order to see the drone fly towards it. This results in expert piloting within minutes, regardless of whether the user has experience in flying drones or not.
And finally, the drone’s embedded sensors & navigational system enables automatic correction of any movements not intended by its user. The drone maintains a hovering position when it is not being controlled. In other words, it will not move if you do not want it to move.
