Amazing! Now you can sit indoors by the fireplace and get some idea of what it is like to fly a Parrot AR Drone!
The new app is available both for Android and IOS and costs less than $2.50. This makes it a inexpensive investment for any newbies thinking of getting into quadcopter flying. Although the app is by no means perfect, it does represent a decent value and will at least you some indication of how your real AR can be controlled.
The app offers various scenarios, including indoor (large warehouse) flying and outdoor as well as a mock-up of the official Parrot Race course for the finals in Las Vegas! You can adjust the point of view as being from the ground (on takeoff) or being the front camera or the bottom camera on the AR Drone.
I’d like to see telemetry added so that an on-screen counters show you speed, height, battery life, etc.
The app is named AR Drone SIM and is written by Dangerous Derk Interactive. The Android Version is at V 3.5.
You can find it by searching the Google Play Store or the App Store on Apple devices.
