Parrot Airborne Night Review
I had recently bought a couple of drones for my little niece – the Parrot Airborne Cargo and the Parrot Airborne Night. Click here for my review of Parrot Airborne Cargo, which costs just $66.99. Before you do that, do read this Parrot Airborne Night Review.
Perfect for Kids!
Parrot Airborne Night is a really small and affordable mini-drone which costs just $66.99 and is a perfect toy for kids. It’s a really cool present to give to a child, and looks really great when you fly it at night, with its bright LEDs – almost like a UFO out of the TV series The X-Files!
It’s easy to control the Airborne Night. All you need to do is to download the FreeFlight 3 app on your iPhone or Android. The Airborne Night is a compact little quadcopter that weighs just 1.2 pounds. It comes with a gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer, which allow it to both take off and land with ease. It’s a really cool gadget which your kids will love showing off to their friends.
There’s a three-axis accelerometer and three-axis gyroscope which measure and analyze every possible movement or inclination of the Airborne Night so that it can both land and takeoff automatically. There’s an autopilot as well that corrects the direction and balance of the drone when in flight. Since it is a pretty small drone, the Airborne Night should only be flown indoors. You can fly it outdoors as well, as long as the conditions are not too windy outside. While it is quite tiny, it is still surprisingly stable in the air.
The Parrot Airborne Night comes with propeller guards to protect the propeller from knocks and bumps. Naturally you will want it to have all the protection possible as you know how it’s like when kids get their hands on their own flying drone! The Airborne Night is quite strong and has a durable body. But don’t even think of repairing it if it gets damaged really badly; it’s far better just to have it replaced.
Now, the Parrot Airborne Night doesn’t have the best camera in the world. It just has a vertical camera which captures low resolution images of just 480×640 pixels and saves them into its built-in 1 GB memory. But since it’s just a toy for kids, that’s acceptable, one would imagine.
The Parrot Airborne Night can be controlled from your iPhone, iPad or Android using the FreeFlight 3 app. It comes with three different modes with varying levels of complexity – Joypad, Normal and Ace – with Joypad being the easiest and Ace being the hardest. There are buttons on the app that allow for an automatic takeoff and landing. The drone hovers at 3 feet above the floor.
