This fast, rugged and lively addition to the Parrot MiniDrones collection performs acrobatics as never seen before. Through this simple, easy-to-use device, Parrot has reinvented the experience of playing with robots.
An acrobatic and fearless adventurer
Jumping Sumo generates its own WiFi (AC) connection allowing for an automatic connection to your smartphone or tablet as soon as you enter the free FreeFlight 3 application (for iOS and Android Smartphones and tablets, and available in October 2014 on Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1).
Thanks to its advanced jumping system, Jumping Sumo can vertically and horizontally jump up to 80 cm/2.5 feet. It rolls at up to 2m/s and turns 90° and 180° in the blink of an eye.
Small, yet robust with a great personality Jumping Sumo offers two different experiences with its adjustable wheels: depending on your level of experience you can opt for stability (wheels extended) or speed (wheels retracted). Thanks to its sturdy, shock-proof design you can jump, roll, spin and explore without stopping. What is even more amazing is that Jumping Sumo always lands on its wheels. Equipped with a gyroscope and high-speed processor, the pilot can make the most of the Jumping Sumo’s fool-proof agility and super-intuitive driving control.
Jumping Sumo reveals its cheeky and mischievous personality through the flashing LED lights and sounds. Don't hesitate to personalise your robot with a range of stickers depending on your mood! Program your own animations and choreograph different moves and tricks to impress your spectators. A removable Lithium-Polymer battery provides up to 20-minutes of fun.
