The Ultimate Wi-Fi Controlled Quadricopter
With the ‘Power Edition’, fans of AR. Drone 2.0 can take advantage of the new high density Lithium-Polymer battery which increases the battery life of the quadricopter from 12 to 18 minutes! The Power Edition includes 2 HD batteries for up to 36 minutes of flight.
In addition to the standard black propellers, the ‘Power Edition’ has three additional sets of propellers. Red, orange or blue, every pilot can customize their AR. Drone 2.0 Power Edition to create a unique and exclusive aircraft. The indoor and outdoor hulls have been redesigned to show off a matte black hull giving the AR. Drone 2.0 Power Edition an even more mysterious look. With up to 36 minutes of flight time, release all the potential of your Parrot AR. Drone 2.0 Power Edition and become the master of the skies.
HD Battery (High Density)
The HD battery is a three-cell Lithium-Polymer battery with a capacity of 1500 mAh at 11.1 volts with a discharge capacity of 10C. It includes a protection circuit (PCM) which protects the battery against excessive charging or discharging as well as short circuits. The estimated flight time with the HD battery is up to 18 minutes.

Top customer reviews
Q: Is this edition a good value?
A: Yes. The two included batteries are more powerful than the original one you would get in a stand-alone purchase and they, alone, more than justify the purchase price. The other extras like colored props and "stealth black" hull are simply a nice addition.
Q: Do I need anything else that doesn't come in this edition?
A: Yes. Get one more outdoor hull. It costs about $50 and you WILL break at least one hull beyond repair. Electrical tape and gorilla glue work for a while (remember to tape each corner to balance out the weight) but you will eventually need a new one. I also strongly recommend getting the seperate GPS module sold for this unit if you plan on getting the most bang for your buck. Independant flight out of GPS range is amazing/terrifying and should be experienced.
Q: How's the battery life?
A: Sucks. BUT, 15 minutes per charge isn't bad for any quad copter under $2000. It's also why having two batteries is great, 30 minutes of almost uninterrupted fun is pretty good. There are also bigger batteries available.
Q: How's the range?
A: Sucks. BUT you can fix that. I can fly around my 1/3 acre back yard with no modifications. If you want to use a range extender for your wifi signal you can double that but keep in mind this gimps most feedback you get from the quad copter. For example, you loose the real time battery life display (it always says 100%) which is bad. The GPS module increases the range of automated flights to whatever the battery life allows. I've seen videos of 1 mile flights (round trip) on a single charge.
Q: How's the video quality
A: Not bad but not GoPro quality. You get 720p video that is suprisingly smooth, still pictures suck. I've seen people attatch a GoPro to the AR Drone but haven't had a reason to do that myself. The video works for youtube and facebook, you can't film a movie with this but I don't think anyone assumed you could.
I haven't had the wifi issues that other people have complained about- but then, I also know how to optimize my phone's wifi and made sure to tweak the correct settings.
As far as the hardware and on board software is concerned, this is a great drone for the price. Battery life is industry standard, and getting more and replacement batteries is easy.
What hurts this drone is that Parrot, the company that makes it, has moved on to more expensive drones. That means the control software hasn't been updated in a while, and there are no plans to update it. Means there's no controller support, no bug fixes (and there ARE bugs), and other issues, including wifi security as these get more popular. If you search the internet enough, you can find a user update to the official app, or you can use a third party app. The third party app I've used works, but the drone doesn't seem as stable when I use it.
I'm likely to replace this soon with something more advanced, but as an entry level wifi camera drone, this is a nice purchase.
--Great battery life
--Easy to fly; great starter drone
--Live video stream is a really cool feature
--Easily controlled with your smartphone
--Works well with third-party controllers too (I bought a MOGA Bluetooth controller and it works perfectly with it)
--Easy to modify if you purchase additional parts
--Camera 1 (720 pixel) is fixed straight ahead; cannot be adjusted
--Camera 2 (on the belly of the drone) is terrible quality
--Live feed goes out at a certain distance (maybe about 200 feet)
--Replacement parts are expensive compared to other drones I've owned
--Non-adjustable trim if one of your blades are scratched or slightly defective
Overall this is a great drone for a beginner, but it comes with a high price tag considering some of the features it's lacking. I'd recommend this to a first-time drone owner, but my next purchase will be a drone that is more powerful and has a controllable camera.
