Imagine if you had access to a quadricopter that you can control via your smart phone/tablet, a drone that can stream video, record HD and take JPEG photos. That has advanced stability features and can perform acrobatics. Well now your scratching the surface of what the Parrot elite edition is capable of. The possibilities are endless from top-secret spy missions to acrobatic feats that defy gravity. The skies are, literally, at your fingertips.
Not only does the Elite come equipped with a 720p camera it also has a rear-facing camera for a unique perspective of your flight. The camera streams directly to your smart device allowing you to follow the journey directly from the screen and with the additional GPS (£49.99) you can plot your route. You can then share your flight on the AR. Drone Academy to compare with other pilots.
The free app also features a rescue mode in the event of a crash landing into branches and a return home feature that instructs your drone to fly back to your location. For the videographers amongst us there is also a director mode that improves stabalisation, takes panorama shots and allows you to change various camera settings including white balance and exposure.
