This is one of our more interesting drones available. The Parrot Mini Drone Rolling Spider can both fly and roll. At £65 / US$99, it’s almost double the price of our previous drones. This is however, made by Parrot who are best known for their older AR drones. They now have a wider range but this was the most interesting – it can roll up walls, across ceilings, as well as fly like traditional drones as the wheels are removable. You do pay a bit more for this of course, but it means you can fly it from your phone or tablet. It also has a much better and safer battery that comes with its own dock for charging.
It’s so cool that we can use drones these days for gaming. We don’t have parrot minidrones yet in our local stores. These games are so creative! I haven’t thought that drone baseball is possible.
