Parrot Mini Drone Jumping Sumo Review – If you’re into technology, then you know that the latest rage right now is drones. You can find a ton of different drones available but you’ll be hard pressed to find one as cool and exciting as the Parrot Mini Drone Jumping Sumo.
That’s because this drone revved it up a notch with what it’s capable of doing and this one makes many of the hot toy lists. This is a light up drone so it can maneuver in dark places in the house such as under furniture or with the lights off.
It’s fun to use at night outside as well as during the day. It’s light up so it can easily be seen from a distance, too. The LED lights shine on anything in its path – plus, it has a camera so you can see where it’s going.
The camera can stream video so kids can watch replays. And it’s built for speed with a top of the line motor. Unlike other drones, this one can quickly get going and reach up to 8 mph.
Plus, the body is durable and can withstand tough play and situations. Not only does the Jumping Sumo have the corner on how fast it can travel but this one is unique in that it has the ability to jump.
Not just small little heights, either. This drone has the ability to leap a mind blowing 2.4 feet up into the air. You can send it flying up over objects and it’s amazing to watch it go.
The back wheels are super large, which help the drone keep its balance – but the wheels also give it the ability to keep that faster speed that leaves other drones sitting still.
This makes it difficult to beat in a race with the width coupled with the traction ability.The drone is tough and agile too with the ability to make 90 and 180 degree turns with ease.
It also has the ability to spin 360s like it’s merely taking a drive. Kids can talk and listen through the drone because it has a speaker and microphone built into the drone.
There are app controls that kids can use to have the drone make whatever movements they want it to make. Plus, the drone can move forward and backward or leap.
You do have to have access to Wi-Fi to be able to use the drone and it is compatible with smartphone and tablet devices. The drone operates using the menu and it has the capability of being able to communicate from about 50 meters away. The set comes with the drone, a battery, the USB cable and a spare rubber pad.
