I don’t think I’ve ever done a video review of anything before, but this new piece of technology is a lot of fun and I couldn’t resist after putting some video together.
It’s the AR.Drone Quadricopter, controlled by an iPhone!
The review includes an unboxing, my first flight (indoors, mistake) including a crash in the sink! Then an outdoor flight and some of my comments on the quadricopter. Fun!
UPDATE 02.04.2011: So, the battery wouldn’t charge about 3-4 months in and I contacted support. Parrot (company that created the AR.Drone) responded within 1 business day that they’d be shipping me a new charger within 2 weeks. Awesome response time, right? Five weeks later, the charger showed up…and it didn’t fix the problem. So, now I’m in process of waiting for them to correctly diagnose the issue (i.e. the battery is shot) and then wait for who-knows-how-long to send a replacement. It’s still a fun product (when it works) but I’m not overly impressed with their service at this point.
