AR.Race2’s major update brings most of the features of AR.FreeFlight 2.0 to iOS pilots into a single App.
AR.Race2 is now the official App to use for piloting AR.Drone 2.0 with iPhone/iPad; without the use of the “Absolute control” mode and the accelerometer, it gives full access to the AR.Drone Academy.
AR.Race 2 is a racing game for Parrot’s AR.Drone 2.0. It is available on iPhone®/ iPod touch®/ iPad®. Play alone or try the multi-player version, where competitors race one after the other and try to set the fastest time. You only need one AR.Drone 2.0 to play the greatest racing game created for the AR.Drone 2.0.
Principle of the game
You get to define the course for your race, for example you can fly between the trees in your garden, back in through the living room window and out again through the front door.Using the special target* included in the AR.Drone 2.0 box, allows you to decide where the starting line is; the target also acts as the finishing line. Each time you fly you can change the course to suit your mood, it is entirely up to you. The windows and the bedrooms might seem like a better idea!
Play with friends/Championship
If a friends visits you while you are in the middle of race - no problem. Create their pilot profile in a few seconds and invite them to join in the race with you. Everyone takes a turn to try and set the fastest time round the course. AR.Race 2 tells you who is the next to go round the course.
If there is a group of you, even better! Create a championship with one or more rounds. At the end of each round, you can change the course to keep things interesting. Who knows which one of you will come out on top this time!
Register with AR.Drone Academy so that all your race scores will be recorded in your account. Rerun your races and get statistics on your missions, number of flights, flight times and much more. All the missions carried out with AR.Race 2 will be used to enrich your general flight data on your AR.Drone Academy account. View your data from AR.Freeflight 2.2.
Parrot provides you with a special detection target for the start and finish line. This target is compatible with AR.Race 2 and defines the start and end of the mission or race, marking the start/finish line. The black-and-white target may be downloaded as a pdf by clicking on the image below. Just print it at home!
