Parrot’s AR.Drone does a high-speed flyby of the FCC’s control tower

While you’re busy saving up for the totally awesome AR.Drone’s $300 price tag as it makes its way toward a September launch, you can now bide your time sifting through its fifteen-odd documents posted to the FCC this week, including a bunch of internal and external photos that do a good job conveying the last thing you’ll see just before you meet your four-rotor hovering doom. There’s also a quick start user’s manual, which interestingly suggests that users put their iPhones into airplane mode before firing up the AR.Drone app — in other words, you should take the cellular modem offline and leave WiFi active for optimum performance. And honestly, who wants to be interrupted with calls and texts while you’re trying to maneuver this beast for the kill shot?
