The flying R/C Parrot AR Drone 2.0 has become the first toy to feature its own Global Positioning System (GPS).

New features include a Flight Recorder system to save flight data and GPS-localised info that can be viewed in 3D.

Users can wirelessly instruct the Drone where to fly using a special map application on the iPad.

The Drone also boasts access to the new Director Mode feature for filming pro movies from the sky (including forward/backward travelling, panoramic and crane views). It also includes a new high density battery that offers 50 per cent longer life.

More details can be found on the AR Drone 2.0's website here and here.

A limited Power Edition AR Drone 2.0 was recently revealed.

The AR Drone 2.0 is supplied in the UK by Flying Toys. For more information contact David Rawlins on 01702 295 110 or visit www.flyingtoys.com.
