Flying Toys? AR.Drone makes Gadget Show Live top 50

R/C Quadrocopter is named one of the event?s must-have gadgets.

“You don’t get any more gadgety than this, a wireless camera mounted on four helicopter blades that can be remotely controlled by an iPhone”, says Jason Bradbury, Gadget Show presenter.

Flying Toys enjoyed a successful Gadget Show Live, with directors David and Janine Rawlins reporting serious interest in the AR.Drone "from both trade buyers and consumers attending the show”.

The Essex-based company won the rights to distribute the Parrot made toy on April 1.

The quadrocopter was demonstrated on the Professional day, and to to maximum capacity crowds on the four consumer days. The event ran all this week, from Monday April 13th to Friday April 17th. 

Next week will publish a report on the Gadget Show Live, with feedback on the trade day.
