We had reviewed Parrot Zik wireless headphones a year back which was the most techiest headphones , Parrot AR drone 2.0 is yet another geekiest gadget targeting the younger as well as the older generation. The AR drone 2.0 is the next generation quadcopter with recording facility with its 2 video cameras and a whole lot of fun in using it. We enjoyed every moment of it.
The device is very light made with plastic and foam weighing 420 gm , The HD camera is capable of recording in 720p at 30fps . Video can be stored on a USB key attached directly on the air drone or using WiFi direct on the smartphone/tablet app available on Android and i OS platform.The AR.Drone 2.0 is powered by an ARM9 processor running at 468 MHz with about 129 MB of RAM.
The Qudracopter is light and can be easily controlled by a smartphone app, This device when out of the box set up requires minimum How to set up knowledge . There are augmented reality games to play around with. The 2 cameras gives you 2 views from AR drone giving you better view angles while recording video.
The battery life is poor giving only 20-25 minutes per full charge.The device is expensive costing 1600 AED in UAE.
The AR drone works as it is meant to be , The maneuvering is fun and great and all it takes is your smartphone or tablet.The fun part is short lived as the battery drains out quickly but you can purchase an extra pair of battery. if you dont mind spending 1499 AED go for it its pure fun.
