Father’s Day is just around the corner and once again, you’re stumped on what to get him. Dads are awesome and the pair of socks, ties and shirts just aren’t going to cut it- especially after a few years of gifting the same old things.
If you haven’t already noticed, drones have become the latest “it” product. And if there is one thing that never changes, it’s a Dad’s love for tech, gadgets and toys. So when we came across the Parrot New Generation MiniDrones and the Parrot Bebop 2, we knew this year’s gift was going to be a hit! These ultra-technological miniaturized robots can be controlled with a smartphone or tablet with the FreeFlight 3 App (free) and are full of fun capabilities for action on the ground, in the air and even on water. It’s THE perfect Father’s Day gift because it creates more activity time with Dad and the kids (even mom too). He will love the chance to plunge into the era of connected toys while spending more time with the family.
Regrouped into 3 types “The Jumping”, “The Airborne” and “The Hydrofoil”, these Minidrones take on all kinds of challenges like light up in the night time, carry cargo, fly, jump, roll and glide.
Price range: $129-$239 CAD
We received a Parrot ‘Cargo’ MiniDrone to try. This minidrone can light the night, roll faster or carry bricks! Plus, they have a better autopilot mode, a new and more powerful motor and better energy management for more flying time; a 4GB memory and an audio mode for the rovers.
It doesn’t matter if you choose to play in the air, on the ground or on water, the Parrot MiniDrones are Big Fun.
Another great gift for Dad is the Parrot Bebop 2, a new generation quadricopter that’s equipped with the latest sensors and technologies. It’s compact, robust, VERY light and has up to 25 minutes of flying time with no equivalent. This is a powerful robot that can manoeuvre through tough conditions and reaches speeds of 37 mph horizontally and 13 mph vertically. The Parrot Bebop 2 also has an embedded fish-eye camera that takes Full HD video. Wowza, Dad’s in for a treat with this one.
Price: $799.99 CAD
