Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition

Product Page

I bought one of these (new) last year from Radio Shack. I love it. It works very well with my android tablet and it has survived situations that would certainly have destroyed lesser drones. It provides very stable flying. The forward looking camera is very clear, the downward looking one is less so, but still quite acceptable. It has gotten itself out of trees (it has a “shake” mode) and the automatic graceful landing feature is very nice. I don’t think I paid this much for it, but it was on clearance (when RS was clearing everything out for its bankruptcy filing). It would be nice to have a bigger battery (I get about 15 minutes of serious flying on a full charge) but such things are available I just haven’t gone there yet…
