I wanted to let you know about an awesome electric handy remote control helicopter that is sure to create a ton of fun for the whole family! See why this Quadcopter With Camera product is so unique and various from all other RC toy helicopters, and where you might get one on sale and in time for the holidays.
The AR.Drone can be an electric RC helicopter equipped with two built-in video cameras and you actually fly it making use of your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, enabling you to watch the live video clip feeds coming straight from the Remote Control Quadcopter With Camera itself. Yes… totally cool!
I recently just saw this gadget at Brookstone, which is the only real “brick-n-mortar” retailer that sells this product. This remote control helicopter is actually known as a “Quadricopter” since it is powered with four electric motor propellers. The AR.Drone brings together many of today’s latest technologies, bringing you a fun high-tech gadget in the genres of handy remote control, modeling, video gaming and augmented drones reality.
experience easy and fun! Since you use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad device to control it, steering the helicopter is performed by tilting your device left and right simply, and controlling the motion through on-screen buttons then. And with both cameras on-board, you can see the live video feed on your Apple device visually, when you are controlling and flying the Quadricopter.
The AR.Drone works well outdoors and indoors. When flying it inside, it includes a protective “shield” known as a “hull”, in the event you bump into anything inside the homely house. In a far more open field outdoors, you can take the full hull off. It really is powered with a lithium-ion battery pack which should last about 20 moments of flying time, so you might want to consider buying a supplementary battery. And the “handy remote control” part is actually done through a Wi-Fi connection between your iPhone/Touch/iPad and the AR.Drone.
In addition to just having a great time flying the AR.Drone and watching the video feeds, you can play a variety of games with it also, using compatible applications from the iTunes store for the AR.Drone. Not only will the kids think its great, but this is definitely a toy that will bring out a child in everyone.
