What is the Parrot Jumping Sumo?
The Parrot Jumping Sumo is a versatile two-wheeled, half robot, half insect minidrone. Ready to roll straight out of the box, the Jumping Sumo is fully assembled, with a removable faceplate and stickers to personalise and customise its appearance. Equipped with a gyroscope and accelerometer, the Jumping Sumo is capable of precision, agility and directional stability, allowing it to move at incredible speeds of 4.35mph, rolling around 2 metres per second.

The adjustable wheels allow the Jumping Sumo to roll, rush, twist and turn, with the ability to perform 360 degree spins and acrobatic manoeuvres. These wheels are able to retract, allowing you to set the mini drone into its ‘compact’ mode, which enhances its agility and ability to drive through narrow areas. The Jumping Sumo has the ability to vertically and horizontally leap, allowing you to perform spectacular 80 cm jumps and always landing back on its wheels.

How can I play with the Jumping Sumo?
The Jumping Sumo generates its own Wi-Fi connection and can be controlled through the free Freeflight 3 app from your smart device. The app supports iOS 7.0, Android 4.0 and Windows 8.1. The Jumping Sumo has 4 main modes of play, which allow you to pilot and interact with the minidrone in a selection of different ways. The ‘jumper’ mode is perfect for performing aerobatics, the ‘kicker’ mode uses the minidrone’s springs to push objects out of its way and the ‘auto-balance’ mode allows you to ride on uneven surfaces such as carpets. During any of these modes you can perform animations including making the Jumping Sumo shake.

The last mode allows you to create a ‘road map’, allowing you to program a sequence of actions and movements for the Jumping Sumo to perform. Choreograph moves and tricks and set a path for the minidrone to roll and jump.

What can the app do?
Within the app, you can access the Jumping Sumo’s integrated wide angle camera, giving you an immersive real-time view of the minidrone’s adventures. This allows you to capture both video and pictures as you roll, jump and explore the world at ground level. Connecting to the Parrot Cloud allows you to share your discoveries and stats with other pilots, making uploading your tricks and aerobatics easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sumo on the run Great fun very clever tech I have a sumo and a spider and I have no complaints. I will suggest buying the charger when it arrives and a extra battery so you get a bit more playing time . You can get spare parts for your toys and there very reasonably priced I found have fun.
