What makes this drone different from the other Parrot AR drones?
This drone comes with two improved batteries on the previous models. The two 1500mAh batteries give you a flight time of up to 16 minutes - an improvement of approximately 33% on the previous model. This ensures that you can enjoy your flying with more time between charges. This quadcopter also comes with three spare sets of propellers in different colours so you can customise your drone for flight.

What quality of camera does the Parrot AR drone come with?
This drone comes with a high definition camera that gives you a maximum video recording resolution of 1280 x 720p at 30 frames per second. This gives you a great looking picture as you soar through the skies, without missing a thing. For still photography, the camera gives you the capability of good quality shots for those sweeping landscapes. This is all live viewable on your smartphone or tablet.

Safe flying is your responsibility
