Using wi-fi technology, the 'quadricopter' can be controlled with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad using the supplied app.

It has an autopilot facility for automated takeoff and landing, and can hover at a user-set height. The ‘copter has both vertical and horizontal cameras on board, which feed live footage to the on-screen display.

Starting tomorrow, Flying Toys will distribute the product to the UK.

The toy represents another development in the app based toys sector, with other examples including Cheatwell Games’ App-Player, a board game which uses an iPhone app in place of traditional playing cards.

The AR.Drone has recieved coverage on the The Gadget Show, CITV's Cool Stuff Collective and the BBC's Top Gear, plus considerable coverage in national newspapers, magazines and the specialist model press.

Flying Toys will be exhibiting at The Gadget Show Live from April 12th - 17th at the Birmingham NEC, and will put the AR.Drone through its paces and launch the latest software.
