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.

VR compatible

The Skycontroller will also support VR headsets like the Oculus Rift via HDMI completely immersing you for first-person-view flight.
