Skycontroller

For those of you who want physical controls instead of just using touch, Parrot also announced the Skycontroller. Basically, it'll give you more of a ground-control experience while also improving wireless communication thanks to its amplified Wi-Fi radio and four antennas allowing you to fly farther and higher.
