Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite Review: Is it the ultimate boys toy?

0

Check out my video review of the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite – retailing at £249.99, is it worth the money? Check out the video and find out!

So, what’s the verdict on Parrots AR Drone 2.0 Elite? It’s a lot of fun to fly around but the problem is, you don’t get much time to fly it around. Once it’s in the air and zooming around, 10 minutes just doesn’t feel long enough for me. I want it to go on for at least 20 minutes ideally and I assume others did too, hence why Parrot has brought out the Power Edition with 2 1,500 mAh batteries. That translates to about 15 minutes per battery or half hour per session. Not too bad but it costs around £70 more than the Elite. Is it worth the price? That’s up to you to decide.

Overall though, the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite is a joy to use with its simple, precise controls and 2 built in cameras. The drone is retailing at around £250, making it a bit on the expensive side but I think it’s worth the price tag. The novelty of flying around and recording it doesn’t get old, or at least it doesn’t to me! We’re giving it a solid 4 stars, the only things letting it down are the battery life and the iOS App that doesn’t work on the iPhone 5s.
