Until now, it was only the owners of Android or iOS powered devices who are able to take control of their Parrot AR Drone quadcopters from their smartphones and tablet devices using the AR Freeflight app, but now the owners of the Windows 8 devices can experience the free flying feeling. The AR Freeflight app is free and for the owners of the Microsoft Surface tablet it is the ideal app for those who already own or are planning to buy the $300 Parrot AR Drone. With the official app installed on the Surface, the user will be able to pilot the quadcopter, so that it is not just the government who have spies in the sky!
Not only that, once in the air the app allows the user to record a short high definition video or just take some snap shots of the neighbourhood from mid air flight. For those AR Drone owners who only have a Windows powered smartphone, do not worry as it looks like there is an app in the works for you too. The AR Freeflight app is available for Windows 8 device users now, get ready to fly & flip the drone around, as well as record video and take photos from up in the air!
