The #1 problem with remote control toys is keeping up with the pesky remote. The Vectron Wave Indoor RC Craft provided our first opportunity to cut that RC umbilical cord but it’s strictly for indoor fun. The Parrot AR Drone lets you take the fun outdoors, and all you need is your iPhone to turn the power of the Parrot lose.
This high-tech quadricoptor can be controlled from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with just the installation of a free app. The four independently powered propellers provide plenty of power, and the built-in cameras make sure you stay on course. No need to worry through those troublesome take-offs and landings either, because the Parrot takes care of that for you with the push of a button. All you have to do is have tons of fun tearing through the sky. Want to add some video game action? Try the augmented reality games that let you fight virtual robots or even have aerial battles with other AR Drones.
Forget the paper airplanes and ripcord gyro-coptors, and step into the future with the Parrot AR Drone for $489 from Firebox.com.
