During CES 2014 Parrot introduced the MiniDrone. The small, less-expensive app-powered drone makes an immediate impression and looks like a ton of fun! Connect it to a smartphone or a tablet with Bluetooth Smart and watch it take flight. I asked the “pilot” to use Judie as a landing zone for the MiniDrone. They were happy to comply.
As Parrot explains
Thanks to its numerous sensors and its autopilot capabilities, Parrot MiniDrone is the easiest-to-fly quadricopter. Its ultra-compact and light-weight design, combined with the power of its engines, allows the Parrot Minidrone to fly at high speeds and perform high-precision acrobatics. Attach two ultra-light wheels to the Minidrone structure and it can climb along a wall or move across the ceiling before taking off again into mid-air.
Parrot MiniDrone in a nutshell:
- Amazing high speed flying
- Indoor wheels to roll on the floor or the ceiling
- Super sophisticated stabilization system
- Robust design
- Piloting mode designed for beginners
- Bluetooth Smart technology
