In this article we will check out the Parrot Drone and discuss 3 cool features of this quadricopter that you can control with your iPhone and other devices. This is the perfect device for the ultimate gamer who wants to try something above and beyond what they are used to. From soaring outside to playing games inside as well, there is really nothing this toy can’t do.
1. Controlled by iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad: This is the first quadricopter that can be controlled by any of these devices due to the on-board Wi-Fi system. Not only does this offer you freedom of use, but it also allows you to play and “fight” against other opponents. You simply tilt and touch the screen to control your Drone, you can zip through the trees outside or even play indoor games; it has protective hull shields to withstand any impact that may occur.
2. Autopilot: If you are worried that your skills aren’t up to par yet and you will damage your Parrot Drone, don’t be; it comes with an autopilot function that has got your back. This feature allows for easy takeoffs and landings and if you have lost your connection it will kick in and take over, stabilizing the Drone device before attempting to land. This is a great feature that will help you tremendously as you get used to how to control your quadricopter, and even after you think you are a pro it is there to help protect your Drone should any unseen walls get in your way.
3. Augmented Reality Games: Not only do you get to see what this device sees thanks to the wide-angle high-speed camera, but it also has the ability to play a large variety of games in augmented reality. You can obtain these games through the iTunes App Store; they range from single-player to multiplayer and offer you plenty of fun to have with your new quadricopter. The sky is literally the limit with this toy, it is beyond fun and for those of you who have been looking for the ultimate game, you can stop looking. Nothing could be cooler than flying an actual toy and getting to see what it sees.
