The Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider is an easy-to-pilot mini-quadcopter you control with your smartphone or tablet. Thanks to its many sensors flight is very stable — indoors or outside — and its attachable wheels protect its propellers and add some functionality. Flight time maxes out at 8 minutes, with a 90-minute recharge time.
Only one battery is included, and there are no extra propellers or an external charger in the box. Its vertical camera only captures VGA-resolution photos. Requires a smartphone or tablet to control. If you can live with its short flight times, the affordable, smartphone-controlled Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider is a great quadcopter for beginners and hobbyists.
