If you aren't familiar with the Parrot AR. Drone then you've been missing out on a treat. The radio-controlled quadcopter is a third-party product manufactured by Parrot in France that stands in a category of its own. The whole design of the quadcopter relies on a smartphone or tablet to provide the control input for the device, which is something that pretty much meant it had to be placed into its own product category when it was originally unveiled at the International CES in 2010. In an attempt to keep the product fresh and in our minds, Parrot has announced the Elite Edition of the A.R.Drone 2.0, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
