MiniDrone Jumping Sumo Spring-loaded trickery abounds
1 Despite its fairly minimal, chunky looks, the Jumping Sumo manages to cram in a charming amount of character. Using thumb controls to propel the ’bot fast becomes intuitive; soon you’ll be spinning it in quarter- and half-circles, tilting your iPhone for more precise steering. There’s a drop-down menu of preprogrammed tricks to choose from, too. What’s more, it can leap impressively into the air at a tap of the screen, clearing the better part of a metre. Zooming about, the camera provides you with a Sumo’s eye view of your living room, which is hugely enjoyable.
