The popularity of drones has grown exponentially since the first commercial models hit the shops a few years ago, with many different models now on offer at a wide range of prices and manufacturers.
Parrot drones are designed for ease of use, and come in a variety of different designs with different capabilities. The mini drones make a great gift, easy to fly thanks to the built in gyroscope which comes as standard. The detachable wheels help you fly up walls and across the floor, whilst doubling up as a safety feature for inevitable collisions! Great family fun for a smarter home.
For those looking for a more advanced parrot drone, the AR Drone Elite and the Bebop have a higher spec, with some awesome features. Both the AR and Bebop can host their own WIFI hotspots, meaning you can connect to your smartphone to control them without needing a standalone WIFI connection.
When controlling parrot drones with a smartphone, the on screen display shows you the battery level, altitude, speed and gives you the option to record your flight or take a still image. The higher spec models also have a “return home” option, which will automatically fly the parrot drone back to where it took off should you lose sight of it.
