Remember the Parrot A.R.Drone ( we talked about it back in January – here and here ) – the iPhone/iPad controlled quadcopter / augmented reality game? Well, this baby it’s finally available for pre-orders.

This four-rotor quadricopter employs dual ultrasonic altimeters, a three-axis accelerometer, multiple gyroscopes, and an embedded Linux platform to continuously stabilize itself during flight. AR.Drone can even compensate for turbulence caused by wind. In fact, it’s so easy to control, anyone can fly it. It features two integrated video cameras stream realtime images via Wi-Fi and support augmented reality video games for solo flights or head-to-head multi-player dogfights.

The quadcopter will be controlled by a free iPhone/iPad app, will ship in September and it costs $299.99. You can pre-order it here
