Yet for the sake of getting a rare glimpse of this exciting technology, let us give you a tour to the most powerful drones and maybe find one that you can take control using your Android phone or tablet.

If you are flying off your drone within a Wi-Fi range, there’s no better way to do it than to get Parrot AR Drone 2.0.

Simply download the FREE Flight App to your Android device (and by the way it also works on iOS), and get on with the most high-flying adventure you can have with your new toy.
