Wow, level playing field.


"As the name suggests, a quadricopter is made up of 4 propellers arranged in a cross-type design that allows the helicopter to take off vertically, hover and fly in all directions. A reinvention of Parrot's original AR.Drone quadricopter, the AR.Drone 2.0 comes with a variety of new hardware and software improvements. First off, it has a 720p camera located in the nose of the R/C copter for filming all of your aviation adventures in incredible HD that you can watch live on your smartphone or share on YouTube. Second, it has a feature that allows you to create your own flight path - just set the coordinates and watch your AR.Drone 2.0 go! The new "outdoor hull" design makes it more wind resistant for increased stability, while the mixture of sensors, including 3D magnetometer and pressure sensor, allow the aircraft to auto-orient itself and reach higher altitudes than ever before.

With onboard Wi-Fi, you can control the helicopter using an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or android device. Plus, users can easily connect with other players over Wi-Fi and battle their AR.Drones against each other. With Autopilot and Absolute Flight modes, the days of complicated remote controls are over. With a push of a button the AR,Drone 2.0 starts, hovers and lands on its own and you can easily control the helicopter by simply moving or tilting your mobile device in the direction you want the drone to go in.

The AR.Drone 2.0 also comes with some "virtual reality" games to add some more fun and entertainment to your flying experience. Use this R/C helicopter indoors or outdoors for hours of fun for all ages."

That's cool but the flight time for those things is only usually a few minutes though right? A personal high altitude drone than could stay aloft for hours would be so much fun though.
