The Ultimate Wi-Fi Controlled Quadricopter

With the ‘GPS Edition’, a GPS Flight Recorder is directly supplied with the AR. Drone 2.0. The GPS Flight Recorder allows new features: geolocate yourself with the GPS module, record flights and videos, watch your flights in 3D with AR. Drone Academy, choose your destination on the map and improve stability. The exclusive GPS Edition packaging includes one 1000mAh lithium polymer battery to provide up to twelve minutes of flying time, plus convenient charger with international adaptors. Featuring a high definition camera with a video recording facility, plus flight data sharing, a patented piloting mode and an innovative pressure sensor for increased stability at any altitude, Parrot’s amazing AR. Drone 2.0 GPS Edition quadricopter can even perform four axis flips on command.

It exceeded my expectations right out of the box.
Willis C Shackleford
The documentation is also painfully lacking - lots of worthless "Click 'open' to open a file" advice but nothing substantive.

I get 40 feet away and the thing starts freaking out.

Having flown, crashed, and successfully repaired the AR Drone 2.0 I can say that manual operation is fun and lives up to most of its promises. The controls are a bit sluggish as one might expect from a WiFi controller instead of a dedicated RF unit.

For manual flight, the AR FreeFlight software runs on iToys and Android. The Android version is rather buggy - mine often freezes when I try to go into the "Pilot" mode (which is necessary for all manual flight). I've heard the iOS version is better and updated more regularly.

While flying under FreeFlight, simply releasing the controls ceases all motion and places the drone into a hover mode. Its a good panic feature, but the drone tends to overreact and lose altitude when operated in this way. (You'll learn to ease off on the controls manually instead of simply "letting go".)

Automatic flight under GPS guidance uses freeware called qGroundControl. qGroundControl is lightyears ahead of many free software projects, but do not expect polish you'd find in commercial software. The documentation is also painfully lacking - lots of worthless "Click 'open' to open a file" advice but nothing substantive.

To even attempt a guided flight, you'll want to watch many of the videos on YouTube. Even with these helpful videos, its not easy. qGroundControl throws a tantrum when it loses connection to the Internet, something you must typically do to connect to the drone. (The Mac version wouldn't even use Ethernet for the web and WiFi for the drone - why not?) Annoyingly, qGroundControl doesn't seem to allow you to set waypoints unless you're connected to a drone (why not?), so preplanning is that much more complicated.

Also, don't buy into the "2 feet" line with the GPS.

I purchased the Parrot AR Drone GPS not knowing anymore than what I had read about it. It exceeded my expectations right out of the box. It's extremely easy to fly. I have flown it with my Iphone as well as my Ipad. If there is any fault to be found it's the use of the Iphone or Ipad in bright sunlight. You can still see it but bright sunlight makes it difficult. Basically perfect in the shade. The actual flying time on the standard battery is about 11 to 13 minutes. I have 2 helicopters that I crash every time I fly them. So far no crashes with the Parrot and I'm in my 3 week owning it.
