The coolest Flying Toy

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 used in journey to the South Pole

The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 from Flying Toys has become the first ever toy to reach the South Pole,
as part of an expedition to teach British school children more about climate change.

Plymouth-based explorer Antony Jinman, 32, completed the 730-mile solo journey across the Antarctic to the South Pole,
all alone except for an AR.Drone 2.0 Power Edition - which he used to capture images and video. These were then beamed
back to nearly 200 school children in Britain, who were following Antony’s journey from their classrooms.

Having completed 15 arctic expeditions previously, including reaching the North Pole in 2010, Jinman undertook the journey
for his organisation Education Through Expeditions, a not-for-profit initiative that works with explorers to engage with
British school children and teach them more about climate change and remote environments.

Jinman travelled all 730 miles in 47 days, keeping the AR.Drone 2.0 charged via solar panels.

control over the AR Drone 2.0. Bluetooth 4.0 low energy technology is used to transmit the signals to the quadricopter.

Aerotron-RC Flying Man Awarded Five Stars!

Ken Sheppard, Editor of Radio Control Model Flyer magazine says "No wonder that a few weeks after publishing our ‘Flying Man’ Debrief page
a few issues ago, where we reported on the phenomenon that went viral on the web last year, that this model should appear for review!
Flying Toys, that most prolific of UK model distributors that specialise in – Flying Toys! – having seen our Debrief piece,
immediately sent us one of the sample Aerotrons to play with (the timing was purely co-incidental).
By the time this review is published, the production versions will be in the shops!

VERDICT: Appeals to the child in everyone - Instantly attractive to kids!

I like the Aerotron a lot! It’s uniquely different from the usual ‘flying toy’ and does require a lot of skill to get the best out of it.
I gave my eight-year-old granddaughter a go and she took to it like a duck to water - never having flown before, after two duff
attempts she was able to keep Aerotron in the air and fly reasonable smoothly, in fact she wanted to take it home with her
(that’s the Xmas present sorted then, but not this one, I’m having so much fun with it!) – that’s proof enough for me.
The Aerotron will prove to be a winner, I think - and it’s appearance in the shops just before Christmas
is nothing more than inspirational.

    

Aerotron-RC Flying Man

Is it a bird?... OK, let’s stop right there. Talk about predictable!
Let’s just jump right in and give you our thoughts on this fun-flying radio-controlled superhero.

The Aerotron-RC Flying Man is sure to be a crowd pleaser, and we confidently predict that you’ll be seeing
quite a few of these miniature flying superheroes zipping around the country.

Kevin Crozier found the Aerotron-RC very easy to fly!

Due to the windy weather we found ourselves holding on full power all the time, but in calmer conditions it should
be possible to fly him at lower throttle settings, which will give more differential power for sharper turns.
As the battery waned the power dropped quickly so we faced Aerotron into wind. A gentle decrease in power saw him
settle gently into the grass. Considering the wind strength Aerotron flew extremely well and we had a fun few
minutes presenting him to the camera for flying shots. Despite the less than ideal conditions he proved
very easy to fly and we look forward to trying him in calmer conditions.

Flying the Lynx AR.Drone 2.0 through the Donut

The 250 competitors had no idea what was lined up for the final four each day, until less than five minutes before their pilots briefing by
the Flying Toys team immediately after qualifying. To fly the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Power Edition quadricopter live on TV in front of a large audience,
through a donut, then land on a plinth on the other side of the stage, without any practice whatsoever, was undoubtedly the ultimate challenge.
Fortunately all four finalists proved more than capable of completing the challenge, with two flight times separated by just one second!

Celebrating the fastest flight time of the Final Challenge

Flying Toys Managing Director David Rawlins and their top Technician Nigel Paine both felt proud and privileged to be asked to appear
on stage in a bright orange spacesuit, alongside the finalists and professional presenters, and really appreciated the opportunity to take part.
