AR Drone 2.0 Elite Ed ition Re­lease your in­ner Mav­er­ick with this im­pres­sive bit of fly­ing kit

Mac Format - - IOS-CONTROLLED TOYS - £247 Par­rot, par­rot.com

4 Re­mem­ber those child­hood fan­tasies of be­ing a pi­lot? Well, this sub­stan­tial quadro­copter is as close as most of us are likely to get. The com­pan­ion app lets you nav­i­gate us­ing ei­ther twin joy­sticks or tilt con­trols (although the lat­ter are rather skit­tish), and get­ting started is sur­pris­ingly easy. Don’t be fooled by the foam ‘in­door’ hull, though: this is re­ally an out­doors-only toy that needs a play­ing field of space to get the most from it. But by jove: ca­reer­ing through the skies, cap­tur­ing images and video from the two cam­eras and pulling off mid-air flips is an in­tox­i­cat­ing joy for any iPhone user.
