AR.Race2 is now the official App to use for piloting AR.Drone 2.0 with iPhone/iPad. It allows you to choose your preferred flying mode: free flight or timed race.
JUST FLY! - The “training” flight option enables you to pilot the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 and to take aerial photos and videos. Connect to your AR.Drone toy by Wi-Fi and you are ready to fly! Use iPhone, iPod or iPad touchscreen as a directional pad to control your AR.Drone.
AEROBATICS! – Make your AR.Drone 2.0 flip in mid-flight using a simple double-click.
TIMED RACE - The timed race option within “AR. Race” enables pilots to compete on a chosen circuit.
Only one AR.Drone 2.0 is needed to play. Fly alone or with friends where competitors race one after the other and try to set the fastest time. Just share controls with your friends to register players lap time. Use your surroundings to create an unlimited number of racing circuits. Each tree, each door, every object can become a part of the AR.Race2 track. In just a few seconds, a new circuit is born. Race times are recorded. Share them and challenge your friends. To create a circuit, just fly over the printed target included in the AR.Drone 2.0 box. It marks the start/finish line.
Enjoy your flights and races!

No support signals end for AR Drone
I don't' see The AR Drone as "hobby" grade helicopter - there are getting to be more, and more affordable options in that category. What it was for me was a well designed, safe and easy to fly, advanced toy.
With the foam indoor hull, It was one if a few helicopters that made it safer to fly around people, especially in the hands of new pilots.. Flying by Absolute Control made it easy and fun to fly. It allowed friends to enjoy it with little training, and few costly wrecks.
I can hold on to my app versions that support Absolute Control, but future revisions of the OS could render them useless. So if Parrot is not going to support this feature, I would request a refund on my Drone and all the peripheral gear I was induced to purchase. One reviewer quoted someone at Parrot saying they just wanted to sell games. Unfortunately they could make a lot of money selling stupid 99 cent games instead of this marvelous toy. Please don't abandon us!
I do not understand everyone's complains, because I didn't have the older version so I do not know what is missing. My personal experience flying my drone for the first time was amazing, I loved it, it was much easier than I expected, smooth and I loved the camera quality, I doubted how good the camera was and I attached my gopro (which added more weight to the drone) and I had no problems I even took a risk and flew it by a river and i had full control. I'm very please!!!! Test it if you can, do not make a deist ion based on others opinion
Bad APP Move.
I was recently given an AR Drone as a gift from my family. And I was enjoying "safely" learning how to fly it with the Absolute Control and Accelerometer Piloting mode. With the removal of that option in version 2.2.1, I have been researching on a way to go back to the previous 2.1.3 version.
So many of the reviews of the AR Drone, stating how easy it is to fly now need to be removed as fly it with version 2.2.1 is extremely difficult. Now I am scared to take my drone out to fly, in fear that I will destroy it.
Please restore the Absolute Control and Accelerometer Piloting mode that made the AR Drone so appealing and cool.
