I was so excited to learn about this product. You know the sound of air escaping from a balloon? That was my excitement waning within 10 minutes of opening the box.

Why? Because there are only TWO games currently compatible with this gadget. Not two thousand. Not two hundred. Just two.

The packaging and the insert materials very clearly state this. Too bad the seller wasn't as clearly obvious in the item listing.

I spent $50 for the chance to play two games that I don't have any interest in playing. I bought the controller to have better motion control with my iOS arcade games like Pac-Man and Joust.

The insert says that more games are coming in February. But, I get the impression that only if game designers decide to re-engineer their games to be compatible with this accessory will that work for me. What are the chances big name game production companies are going to do that?

This item is going right back in the box and will be returned post haste. Save yourself the trouble and disappointment, don't buy this.

NOT great to use for the ar drone. Yes it does have cool buttons, but you will have to tweak all controlls first!
For me not worth the $30+ I paid. Would be rightly priced at $10-$14.99. Plus you must buy the ar drone ace app($5.99).

I have a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0.

I love this Parrot AR.Drone 2.0.

With that said, I was looking for ways to have a bit more traditional style of control with it than using the dual virtual sticks on my iPad Mini. I did some research and found that the 60Beat game controller can be used with an app available called Drone Control.

When you launch Drone Control, in the options is a slider to turn the option for the 60Beat on. Once this is done, you simply plug the 60Beat into your iPhone/iPad and it will let you know it's connected by bringing up an onscreen map of the controls.

Once you clear that, you're able to use the 60Beat as a traditional Mode 2 controller for your AR.Drone!!!

AWESOME!!!

After flying quite a few packs through the AR.Drone with this control option, I don't think I'll be going back to just the touchscreen at all. It's so much nicer to be able to actually feel the controls, and the fact that you can feel the sticks come back to center and such just makes the AR.Drone a joy to fly...even more so than I felt it was before.

So, for you AR.Drone fans out there, you NEED to get one of these and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

I've also downloaded a few apps that use the 60Beat. I've read that it isn't supported by a lot of games, and that is probably true. However, for me, the games it controls are more of a bonus as I spent the money to get it for my AR.Drone. I'm playing through Bard's Tale using it and a game called Aftermath, and it works like a charm on both of those games. It's nicer than using the touchscreen, however, it IS slightly more of a hassle than just using a virtual stick.

Overall, though, I think it's a nice product...and if you look at it as an AR.Drone flight stick first, game controller second, I don't think you'll be able to find any faults with it.

I got this to fly my AR.Drone with - it makes a HUGE difference and I highly recommend it.

BUT - I was a disappointed in the seller. The package was missing the audio splitter needed to use this controller and listen to your game on the earbuds. When I pointed this out, they wouldn't just send me the splitter, instead they insisted that I ship the controller back so that they then could send me another one with the splitter.

Seemed way too silly and wasteful to me so I contacted 60beats and they're sending me a splitter. Go figure.

So anyway - great package but be sure to check the contents for all the parts!

This product rules. I wish i had 2, but could only find 1. The unit was used, but the condition i received it in was like new, in the original box, with all the packing material and supporting documentation. The unit has the same dimensions in the center as a Sony PS4 controller, so I have fitted it with a gameklip iPhone mount. This mount supports my iPhone so I can use it as a gaming console, as well as a controller for my Parrot AR Drone. There are a lot of cool games available that support it as well. Production has ceased on the unit, so I believe it's becoming sort of a nerdy collector item for gamers and iOS app developers.

This is a lifesaver if you're using this controller for your drone. Excellent performance, and the best part is, you need no batteries! Worth every penny.

So far I'm loving the 60beat gamepad. I wanted to take my Drone experience to the next level and the 60beat didn't disappoint at all . The handling of the drone using the iphone and the 60beat is like night and day, I was really impress with the 60beat quick reaction and easy to use.
The preset settings using the drone control app are wonderful, you can tweak the layout to fit your needs. I personally have it on default RC mode 2 and did I mention is just plug and play no need for batteries.

Note: you will need to get the Drone control app from the apple store.
