At $299.99, Parrot’s AR Drone is basically a flying video game that is also the “first quadricopter that can be controlled by an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

At demos in the past, controlling the AR.Drone seemed really easy, and it is when you’re limited by about 10 feet in any direction. When you actually get outdoors, and have tons of obstacles to fly around, piloting the device actually seems to take a bit of skill.
