    Review by ant2ony
    I own many drones including the Parrot A.R Drone 2.0. I love these little flying robots from Parrot, flying them is so much fun. After receiving this Parrot MiniDrones Rolling Spider I was surprised of how small it is without the rolling wheel this mini drone fits in the palm of your hands. This done comes with the wheel detached but it took 5 seconds to assemble it however it may be a little tricky to clip it onto the drone and the manual is not very clear on this process but the videos online was very helpful, my recommendation is to watch the videos online to get familiar with the drone and to learn some tricks. I love the fact that this drone can be charged using a standard micro USB cable, The battery life may only be 8 minutes which is on the short side but after flying it for a while, 8 minutes is enough time to enjoy flying the drone. The drone is controlled using the Free Flight 3 app for both iOS and Android using bluetooth, even with bluetooth I could fly this drone around my house without any issue both indoors and outdoors even the connection stays strong I never lost bluetooth connection between my iPhone and the drone. The included camera on the drone is low resolution but a camera is not usually found on drones this small so this was a nice addition and takes decent enough photos and all you have to do is plug the drone into your computer to retrieve your photos. The best thing about this little drone is the app lets you customize how to control the drone by using your phones tilt function or touchscreen joystick and performing flips and rolling on walls and ceilings. I enjoyed using this drone while rolling on the ground it was so easy to control and performs like a small R/C car.
