Parrot MiniDrone

 

Hands-on at CES 2014: The pint-sized quadrocopter that can also climb up walls

Despite the lack of a 720p HD video camera to stream the action and the shorter flying time, the MiniDrone is still a lot of fun and is surprisingly easy to control. Bouncing it off walls doesn’t have the same impact on keeping the quadrocopter steady...

A Rolling Spider : Parrot MiniDrones Rolling Spider

 

The MiniDrones are coming. Leading the aerial force is the subject of this next review.

Like many others, I am not the biggest fan of spiders but in this case I am willing to make an exception. The arachnid in question is of the mechanical type and belongs to the Parrot family of MiniDrones which could well be invading our homes over the...

Parrot’s New MiniDrones Are an Entertaining, But Mixed Bag [REVIEW]

 

Parrot's new Rolling Spider and Jumping Sumo are smart, fun, easy-to use drones, but they could really use better battery life.

Easy to set up ; Great software ; Fun to fly and drive

Battery life is too short ; Jumping Sumo’s video storage solution is problematic

These MiniDrones are mostly worth the price of admission and will, if you can stand the battery-life frustration, provide a lot of fun and entertainment.

The MiniDrones Are Coming : Parrot MiniDrones Rolling Spider Jumping Sumo

 

They are small, they are fast and they perform tricks. Welcome to the MiniDrones.

Parrot, the developer of technologically advanced consumer products for smartphones and tablet, opted for one of London’s high-rise locations to announce that we are about to be invaded by a new generation of connected trays. This initial onslaught...

Review: Parrot Rolling Spider

 

The drone-maker's latest $100 quadcopter is a great way for pilots -- especially the youngest ones -- to discover the joys of flying. It's also...

The best baby copter we’ve seen yet. Easy connection to a phone. Smart stabilization features. Sturdy body with big “training wheels

Slow battery recharge. No spare parts in the box; problematic considering the fragility of the wheel axle. Takes some patience to get its full potential. Low-res built-in camera faces downwards

Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider (review): Inexpensive drone fun for novice flyers

 

It would be easy enough to dismiss Parrot's MiniDrone Rolling Spider as just another mini-quadcopter. And at $100 (AU$140, £90) it would be a pricey one, too, considering you can get a basic mini-quadcopter for less than $30.

The Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider is an easy-to-pilot mini-quadcopter you control with your smartphone or tablet. Thanks to its many sensors flight is very stable -- indoors or outside -- and its attachable wheels protect its propellers and add some...

Flight time maxes out at 8 minutes, with a 90-minute recharge time. Only one battery is included, and there are no extra propellers or an external charger in the box. Its vertical camera only captures VGA-resolution photos. Requires a smartphone or...

If you can live with its short flight times, the affordable, smartphone-controlled Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider is a great quadcopter for beginners and hobbyists.

Review: Parrot's Rolling Spider Minidrone

 

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet noisy enough to irritate everyone around you in eight-minute bursts, there's plenty of fun to be had with Parrot's new Rolling Spider Minidrone. Billed as an easy-to-use toy with a bag full of pre-set...

In line with Parrot's other consumer-oriented drones, assembling the Rolling Spider is a relatively simple process. Giant wheels clip onto either end of a wheel axle, which in turn clicks into place on top of the Rolling Spider's body. These wheels are...
