Product Information

  • Overview

    Fly and roll

    Turn any place into a playground with Parrot's MiniDrone Rolling Spider robot. Simply connect it to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Bluetooth Smart technology, then take control using the FreeFlight 3 app. You'll quickly have Rolling Spider weaving through the air and showing off its acrobatic moves.

    Amazing acrobatics

    With a click of your finger, Rolling Spider flips 360 degrees and with a simple swipe it can turn 90 degrees and 180 degrees. Take advantage of pre-programmed acrobatic moves in FreeFlight 3 to keep everyone entertained.

    The agile, ultra-compact drone

    Attach removable wheels to your Rolling Spider and get ready to roll it across the floor, up a wall or across the ceiling. The sky's the limit.

    Take a photo

    Every 16 milliseconds the vertical camera takes pictures of a set point on the ground. It then compares each photo to the previous one in order to determine Rolling Spider's speed.

    I recently acquired one of these Parrot mini Drones and I am very impressed! I have owned an AR drone 2 for around a year and have I recently acquired one of these Parrot mini Drones and I am very impressed! I have owned an AR drone 2 for around a year and have loved it so was excited to play with this new one! If you're looking for an entry level drone this is it.

    For the price you pay it's a very responsive, very fun and very easy to use the drone. The range is big enough for a standard room and it extends slightly when outside. The drone connects up to the smart device easily (remember to turn Bluetooth on) and then from there the program is simple once you've had a play around with it. I like how quiet the drone is compared to some of the ear-piercingly noisy ones on the market. I also like how the whole family can use it with ease and have as much fun as someone that has used drones before.

    I found Three downfalls (and still nothing major) with the drone. These were that it is a little harder to control when the wheels are attached and I found it had a mind of it's own at times, thankfully though the wheels break the fall and bounce back to prevent damage. Also the battery isn't that long maybe 10 minutes but I was lucky enough to receive a second battery with mine so an easily solved problem and finally another minor thing is if you do collide with an object sometimes the propellers fly off. I assume it meant to happen to avoid damage but make sure you keep an eye out for them. Very cheap to buy replacements either way so not a major problem.

    Overall I've really liked the experiences I've had with the drone. For the money it costs to buy, it's a very worth while to buy for yourself or a present. It's good for anyone too, any experience level can fly this it doesn't take much thinking which is also a benefit. As mentioned, I recommend buying an extra battery and potentially some extra props, after that you're all set for a fun-filled flying experience!

    This is a great little drone that you can either drive around the ground with the wheels, fly around the room or even drive up the This is a great little drone that you can either drive around the ground with the wheels, fly around the room or even drive up the walls. I found that it only took a couple of times before I got the hang of the control system but once I had I felt like an expert. I would defiantly recommend an extra battery as it does run out pretty quick but when you realise how fast those blades can go you will soon understand why. Very very durable have crashed many times trying to be fancy but it just keeps going.

It was easy to set u I got this for my little brother for his birthday and he loves it. It turned out to be his favourite present. It was easy to set up and after a bit of practice and watching some videos on YouTube it was flying all around the apartment and doing flips and other tricks. It's been pretty durable so far. The controller app works great through the iPhone. The camera quality is very good.

    Excellent starter drone. Fun to fly. It takes excellent photos and is very easy to control via the FreeFlight app. The only downsi Excellent starter drone. Fun to fly. It takes excellent photos and is very easy to control via the FreeFlight app. The only downside is that it eats batteries pretty quickly, if you perform lots of stunts and tricks with it. Great value, overall.
