• Uses GPS to provide added stability to higher altitude flights
• Enables a "return home" function to bring the drone back to point of take-off in a straight line
• View your flights in 3D on the AR Drone Academy
• Provides developers with a basis upon which to build further applications
• Allows you to select your drone's destination on a map (subject to Wi-Fi availability)Improvement in stabilisation
Flying very high is a dream which has become possible with the AR Drone 2.0. When you climb to 50 or 100 metres, your AR Drone 2.0 appears smaller to the naked eye. At this point, stabilisation becomes an essential tool for control. Although the AR Drone 2.0 already features a number of sensors to provide stabilised flight, the GPS receiver on this accessory calculates the position of your AR Drone in space. This prevents it from drifting in the wind - from now on, the sky's the limit!
"Return home" mode
Making the AR Drone 2.0 return to the point of take-off is now child's play thanks to this new feature. Just press once on the corresponding button and your AR Drone 2.0 comes straight back to its take-off point in a straight line.
View your flights in 3D on the AR Drone Academy map
With the Flight Recorder, your flight data (altitude, speed, etc.) is enriched by GPS location data. By registering with the AR Drone Academy, you can access all the flights you have made. Thanks to the GPS receiver you can review the trajectory in 3D and position it on the AR Drone Academy map.
An accessory for developers
The GPS receiver now provides further scope for developers. QGround Control, a program available for Windows, Linux and Mac, allows them to program a flight plan among a host of other things.
A new control mode: control by map
This new control mode allows you to choose the destination of your AR Drone 2.0. A new control interface shows the geographical map on which you click to determine the destination of your AR Drone 2.0 (within the limits of the Wi-Fi connection). An Internet connection is required to load the card.
Please note - this item is already supplied with the AR Drone 2.0 GPS Edition. Due to this, it is only recommended as a replacement part for this model.
