Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite (sand) £140 at Amazon

55
Found 7th Dec 2013
I've been looking to get one of these for ages and the prices at amazon have been moving around a fair bit recently. Last night I noticed that the price had dropped on the sand coloured model to £140 which is the cheapest I've seen it and is essentially half price. I've ordered and already got a dispatch email so even it is a misprice they've honoured mine.

The parrot ar drone is a quad copter which you can operate from your ipad/iPhone or Android device. It has a HD 720p camera to take video which you can either stream straight back on to the smartphone/tablet or use a USB stick to record in flight. According to parrot you can fly this for 12mins up to 165 foot away. It has flight stabilisation and can perform flips. If it gets out of range then it should just hover.

Ok so the sand colour isn't great for outdoors flying because it will be harder to follow but a new hull will cost you £21 off eBay.

This is my Christmas treat to myself as I see it as the ultimate boys toy and at £140 it seems to be a bargain.

Perfect for spying through people's windows oO

cool

sidewinders free

165ft = ~50m range factor in how high you are going not bad.
but if you send it 50m+ high will it just hover up there till the battery dies or do you get a ladder to bring it down!

See this on the gadget show a while back...awesome.!

Great bit of kit hot

True. That said there seem to be ways and means of extending your wifi range to allow further flights although with a 12min flight time I'm not sure how far you'd want it to go. youtu.be/0Fh…LAI

They will have monitored that comment and men in suits will be around at some point to snap your neck, good luck.

You can compete with Amazon and try and do quick deliveries (165 foot away).

lol

Ordered one from Amazon, delivered by another drone.

I think they were kind of 'coupling' by the time it got here

It looks very lightweight, probably to be used indoors? Outside? You can kiss your £140 goodbye especially when it very windy.

How do Amazon's drones knock? Do they do a 'Murica and blow a hole through your house and drop the parcel in the crater?
..or down the chimney? (in a more festive spirit).

Thanks OP, got one at £140.
I fly a "slightly" more advanced Quad from these chaps - http://quaternium.es/en/
My daughter (10) has been wanting to fly mine, but with all the gadgets on board (GPS / FPV / GoPro camera and gimbal), it's too expensive for her to play with.
The AR Drone 2.0 will be perfect for her, she lives on her Ipad and Nexus, so this will be a perfect match.
