Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite Edition from the French company Parrot is a modified and edited version. The device belongs to the class of amateur drones and despite the presence on the camera body, it is not intended for video shooting. The quadrocopter gained great popularity due to the fact that it is easy to control, and also it has the ability to replace almost any part.

The quadcopter has an unusual and original appearance. The frame is made of metal, so it is durable and resistant to shocks. Four propellers of flexible design are attached to the drone body. The quadcopter has motors that have their own sensor. The power of each motor is 30 watts. In the central part there is a battery compartment, which is closed by a plastic casing on top. Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite Edition comes with two casing options:

1.) Designed for indoor flights – This design is massive, protecting the propellers along the perimeter.

2.) Flying in the open – This design is not designed to protect propellers, but it protects the battery and flash drive. The mass of such a casing will be less than in the first configuration.

The casing is made of colored polystyrene, which resembles foam. Due to its flexibility, such a material is able to absorb shock. There are green LEDs on the front of the case, and red on the back. Thus, the front and rear parts of the device are distinguished. The case itself is equipped with various sensors, the main camera is installed on the bow, and a slightly smaller camera is located at the bottom of the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0. Motors are mounted at the edges of the device rays.



The quadrocopter under consideration has two cameras. The main HD-camcorder has a resolution of HDReady and the picture is shot in 720p quality, which is 30 frames per second. In this case, the compression will be H264. The main camera has a wide viewing angle, which is 92 degrees. The second camcorder lens angle is 64 degrees. A QVGA camera is used to determine speed.

Software & Controller

Quadcopter Parrot Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite Edition is controlled by a mobile device for even specially downloaded application AR.FreeFlight 2.3. It can be downloaded to any smartphone that runs on Android or iOS. The image comes to the gadget in real-time. The quadcopter is controlled wirelessly. Via Bluetooth, the control radius of the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite Edition is limited to 10 meters, and via Wi-Fi – from 50 meters. A distinctive feature of the drone is the ability to control the device, despite it. You can only look at the mobile device, where all the information important for management will be displayed.

A review of the model made it possible to determine that the quadrocopter can be controlled by other devices. They are not included in the package, so they need to be bought additionally. The quadrocopter is controlled in two ways: through the touch screen and using the accelerometer. In the first case, buttons will be displayed on the screen with which you can make turns and adjust the height. In the second case, the drone will respond to a change in the position of the gadget. Due to this, the accuracy of control increases. For Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 to start working, you need to download the application on your smartphone, install it and run it. The application has a large number of parameters that can be customized.

When using the device outdoors, you must enable the Outdoor Flight mode, with which you can change the landing settings of the device. The quadcopter is not recommended for use in nature if the wind speed is above 15m/s. But in the course of testing, it was noted that the model is also resistant to stronger gusts of wind. A feature of the drone is the ability to hold a certain height. If the device was displaced by gusts of wind from a specified height, then it tries to return to its original place. If Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is controlled from the screen, then it is necessary to take into account the fact that the resulting picture is slightly behind the reality, as the frame rate is 5fps.
