What is it? The latest drone from Parrot combines a miniature drone with a hydrofoil – when the two are attached, the drone rises to form a vertical, electronic sail that powers the hydrofoil. It can then be unclipped and flown separately like a regular drone. When’s it due? Sailing into view right now. Why are we excited? It’s Parrot’s first foray into the world of hydrofoils and it looks good to us. Combining aquatic and aerial electronics means you get the best of both worlds, all at a much more affordable price than most drones. We’re looking forward to seeing where Parrot takes this line next.
