Back in November, last year, we told you that Parrot AR Drone and Zik had received Windows 8 support and now the much awaited Ar.FreeAlight app has been made available in the Windows Store for Windows 8.1 and Windows RT users.
Recently released in the Windows Store, the official Ar.FreeFlight app for Windows 8 devices lets you pilot and flip the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, as we ll as record high definition video and take pictures with the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0. The app comes with a size of less than 20 megabytes and can be downloaded completely for free from the Windows Store by following the link at the end of the article.
AR.FreeFlight app finally released for Windows 8 users
INTUITIVE – Download AR.FreeFlight, the free control application, and you are ready to fly! By tilting your device you control the direction of your AR.Drone. When you release control, the AR.Drone is instantly stabilized in the air. AR.FreeFlight is compatible with the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0. FLY LIKE A CHAMPION – The AR.Drone is equipped with intuitive sensors that allow it to remain stable in the air, virtually flying itself. Anyone can fly like a champion as the embedded sensors allow for easy take-off and landing. With the AR.Drone 2.0 and AR.FreeFlight, you can access the exclusive and patented Absolute Control piloting mode for beginners that can be adjusted with your growing expertise.
In order to record and save HD videos directly to your Windows 8 tablet or desktop device, you will need to make sure there’s a working WiFi network, and the same goes for pictures. As more and more Windows 8 tablets will make their way to the end users, these apps will become much needed, so if you own a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, then go ahead and download the app from the Windows Store. From the looks of it, the app won’t work with the first generation of the Parrot AR.Drone.
