However the DJI Phantom comes with GPS capability and a return home feature built in. Apart from the price difference between these two drones the way they are controlled is the next largest difference. Parrot with help from French researchers have created quite an intuitive app for iOS and Android called Parrot Freeflight. The AR Parrot 2.0 drone basically acts as a WiFi hotspot which connects to your smartphone or tablet and this allows it to stream HD video directly to your device.
And for Petes sake switch off the ceiling fan! Besides working out those precautions there is little to fret about. As your piloting abilities development you can challenge yourself to increasingly uphill struggles. You might begin out simply attempting to arrive on the coffee table. In time youll be dusting your ceramic frog collection with the micro quads rotor wash. Once you feel that you have the hang of quad flying its time to update to something capable of bring a high quality cam. It is worth mentioning that there are some micro quads with integrated video cameras.
Say youre a beginner; you watched a few drone videos and are all excited about being able to fly it around your city and take pictures from perspectives and angles you could not access before. One of the most important features nowadays is the ability to film high definition video; if you wish to display your drone video art to friends then this is essential. The good news is that HD video cameras have become cheaper and cheaper nowadays and both the Parrot AR Drone and the DJI Phantom have them. As previously mentioned GPS is optional for the AR Drone and can be had by buying a flight recorder for about $140 off Amazon.
The two main competitors are Parrot who have now released the 2.0 version of their AR Drone for amateurs and DJI Phantom which priced at over $1000 is for the more serious players in the drone arena. The AR Drone is priced at about $300 and up depending on whether you opt to go for any extra features such as GPS based auto-pilot an extra battery or extra memory in the form of a USB plug-in stick. This makes it more affordable and it would not surprise me if it becomes one of the top Christmas gifts this year!
