PILOTING SCREEN

Freeflight 3 has a minimalist and intuitive new interface.

Rolling Spider has 3 piloting modes:

  • Normal: The easiest mode (for beginners). Default controls.  Lets you move the Rolling Spider with the accelerometer and turn with the joystick (located on the right side of the screen).

rs-normal

  • Ace: The most advanced mode.  This mode allows you to control the Rolling Spider with just one finger!

rs-ace-1024x659

  • Joypad: The joypad mode allows you to disable the use of the accelerometer.  This mode also allows you to take snapshots and record videos of the Rolling Spider in action with your device’s camera.  To do this, press the ‘Rec’ button and the videos will be automatically saved in the gallery.

rs-joypad

BASIC PILOTING:

Before every flight, be sure the Rolling Spider is placed on a flat surface, then press the ‘Flat Trim’ button once.

To start flying, press the ‘Take-off’ button.

The Rolling Spider remains stable in the air without touching any controls.

  • To raise the Rolling Spider, slide your thumb up on the joystick located on the left side of the screen.
  • To lower the Rolling Spider, slide your left thumb down
  • To rotate the Rolling Spider, slide your left thumb to the right or to the left.

To move the Parrot Rolling Spider, just maintain your right thumb on the joystick and tilt the tablet/smartphone: forward, backward, left and right. (In ace mode and Joypad mode, maintain your left thumb instead).

SWIPE:

To change direction of your Rolling Spider quickly during flight, swipe your finger on the cross located on the right side of the screen.  Swipe right and left to perform 90 ° turns or swipe up and down to perform 180 ° turns.

FLIPS:

Rolling Spider can also perform flips. To enable this function, in the ‘flip’ menu, select the type of flip you want to perform then tap you finger 2 times quickly anywhere on the piloting screen to trigger the flip.

It is also possible to make a flip when the Rolling Spider is moving.

ADVANCED PILOTING

Rolling Spider comes with removable wheels which allow it to roll on the floor, up the walls and even across the ceiling!

ROLL ON THE FLOOR:

Wheels allow the Rolling Spider to roll on the floor:

To roll Rolling Spider on the floor, activate “Wheels” mode in the settings menu. Then, simply tilt the Rolling Spider forward or backward.

ROLL UP A WALL:

To roll the Rolling Spider up  a wall, gently approach maneuver Rolling Spider to the wall and gradually increase altitude while directing the drone up the wall.

ROLL ON THE CEILING:

To roll the Rolling Spider across the ceiling, gradually increase the altitude of the MiniDrone until you reach the ceiling, then slowly control it across the ceiling.

SETTINGS:
  • Max Altitude: In the Settings Menu of the FreeFlight 3 App, you can change and limit the maximum altitude for the Rolling Spider. That way, Rolling Spider will automatically stop when it reaches the desired altitude.
  • Max Tilt: In the Settings Menu, there is also a Max Tilt option that lets you set the maximum angle of inclination for the Rolling Spider.  This setting affects the acceleration, so the higher you set the inclination (or the tilt) – the faster the Rolling Spider’s speed will be.
  • Cut out: This option is  available in the Settings Menu to shut down the engines in the event of crash.
  • Name change: To change the name of your drone for easy recognition, use the name change function in the Settings menu.
FREE FALL TAKE-OFF:

The Rolling Spider has an exclusive free-fall take-off mode. Press the ‘Free Fall’  button, then as soon as you let go of the Rolling Spider, the engines will start automatically.

PHOTO :

On the piloting screen, press the ‘photo’ button to take snapshots with the vertical camera.

The photos are saved in the Rolling Spider’s memory which contains enough space for several hundred photos. To recover your photos, go to the context menu of the application and press Freeflight internal memory. Select the photos that you want to save and then press “transfer” to add them into your gallery.

    Does this really only have 8 minutes of battery life per charge? I was interested in this until I found that out. My walk between classes is longer than 8 minutes, so if I wanted it to fly with me, it would be out of battery before I even got to my next class?

    • http://www.parrot.com Parrot

      Hi, the Rolling Spider battery autonomy without wheels is 8min. Additional batteries are available.

      • Nicolas Sebastian

        how can you obtain additional batteries? I got my mini drone yesterday and it worked fine then, but today its lasts about 5 seconds, even though i charge it for more then a hour and a half.

      I agree with worked fine then, but today its lasts about 5 seconds,
      More faster than: https://vehiclepad.com/categories/view/3bf05b4fed295188b23525a11b0857a59aa16dd7/2017-mustang-ford.html

    Hou do I disconnect my Rolling Spider from my iPad?
    So, I want to change my RS connection to iPhone.

    • http://www.parrot.com Parrot

      If you turn off your Bluetooth of your iPad and turn on your iPhone Bluetooth, that will be ok.

  • http://www.log.com.tr/ Volkan YILMAZ

    How many screws does Spider have? Because when my son crashed it one of the propellers was taken off and I found a tiny screw (the fifth one) on the magnetic motor. But I couldn’t find any other screw hole for the fifth screw.

  • Steve S

    When I have my Rolling Spider’s wheels attached, and tap “Take Off” it generally rolls backwards rather than going straight up. Is there an adjustment I can make in the settings to stop this from happening?

    • COBBAcrazy23 .

      go to setting and put it on wheel mode

  • JU571N

    I can’t make any pics anymore (rolling spider) and can’t access “internal memory” in the app. :(

    • Agustin Stacey

      I know I can’t go to internal memory plz can someone help me?

      • John D

        same here. how do i take snapshots? where the hell is the ‘internal memory’?

        • Agustin Stacey

          Dude I know where the internal memory is, you have to connect the parrot to the Bluetooth and then in the app there is a thing that is in below the gallery, that it says “internal memory” so press there and you can see your pics and you can take snapshots by pressing the button at the right, I am going to post a picture

          • John D

            Thanks. I actually fixed that problem soon after I wrote this post. For some reason the ‘internal memory’ option was not appearing before. Anyway, problem fixed. What I still can’t do though, is take pictures from my phone’s camera while in joypad mode. I can take videos, but not stills. Is it supposed to be able to do that?

          • Agustin Stacey

            You have to press the button on the right on the top of the screen just that

          • http://about.me/bentyyc Ben Tsui

            I can’t take photos in any mode – Ace, Joypad, or Normal

    Cool

    hey parrot i was just wondering why i cant stream the camera underneath the spider to my iphone it seems for something like this for a small drone it would make sense for this freature to be included and would be a great selling point thanks

    I think the pilot rolling spider is making thinking about plane. I can do it. if I have a software to controlling spider.

    Hi! Lately, after less than one month the date I bought it, the battery lasts less than two seconds. On the App it tells me that the battery is charged at (more or less) the 20%. Can you help me with that?

    • Shane Barry

      Same problem here I think they do it like that so u buy more

      • David

        I opened a claim, and they sent me a new battery. It works fine now. Try the same :)

        • Jon Healy

          mine did after one day, how did you open a claim?

        • dominoes30

          How can you open a claim?

    • Robert Peruzzi

      I had the same problem and it took me a long time to find a fix. If you take the battery out you can see three prongs that slide into the little cut outs in the from of the battery. This is where the battery connects to the drone. If you take a small standard blade screw driver and VERY gently push the ones to the right and left out slightly from the center, it will make better contact with the battery, and give substantially better battery life. You will have to do this every so often. The reason for this is that the connection gets really hot and they contract. Here is a you-tube link that should show you exactly what you need to do. https://youtu.be/nwDecWKRCPw

    • http://mybay.fr Leo Etcheverry

      THE PROBLEM IS SOLVED : you have to bend slightly the battery connectors of the drone, push gently with a screwdriver against it, beca https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/646f360fd9e9990cd0f3870298b0439694c23fdae4f8b23c3c0d1f8795b1367b.jpg use of heat when current flows trough them, they bend and disconnect from the battery, and this is well known to all parrot pros.

  • Atmaka

    Hi, can I charge the Rolling Spider with my iPhone charger? Will it cause any side effects? Thanks

    • Alem Tesfay

      Do u have an iphone 4

  • http://www.fundyourdreamlife.com/ Simon Green

    I think the rolling parrot is great fun. The first few times I flew it it lasted about 5-6 minutes with wheels which matches the description. However now, after about 10 uses, it is lasting less than 1 minute. The battery goes from 100% to 74% nearly instantly, and is at critical battery less than 1 minute later.

    I have sent a message to support, and I am hoping that this can be resolved without any additional costs to me.

    • Jim McCloskey

      I have the same issue!

  • kw1330

    Hi the firmware upgrade to 1.0.103 crashes from the App. It says u can do over USB, how?

  • Garth

    I have had my spider for only a day and it will not hold a charge for even a minute this is ridiculous. Is there a fix for this or just poor craftsmanship?

    • Tom

      Charge then run to zero he might have to run it and floor to get it to zero do this about3 to 4 times and then it should start holding a charge and that must be done one right after another

  • Steve Lunay

    Used it three times and battery won’t hold charge. Rip off.

  • Ruben Andrade

    Hello, My RS isn’t connecting to my smartphone. I did everything as it says in quick start guide. My equipment is compatible with it. The app works flawlessly with JS but I am not able to connect the RS.

    Thanks

  • Ciborra

    Hi,
    I can’t connect my new rolling spider to the freeflight3 App. I’m trying with an iPhone 5 (IOS 7.0.4) and with an iPad (IOS 8.0.2), and the App crashes in iPhone while trying to connect and in iPad never detects the drone… I updated the drone from v.1.0.80 to v1.0.103 and the problem is exactly the same…
    Any ideas??
    Thanks!

    • Chris

      Any luck yet ?

    • Turdean Bogdan

      hy there..can you tell me how you updated the rolling spider from 1.0.80 to 1.0.103
      ???

    • Alan Li

      Got the same problem too plz help

  • Chris

    Nov. 28, 2014. My new rolling spider will not hold a charge. Fly time = 15 seconds. I hope it is a simple fix of a battery replacement.

  • Marco T

    I think the battery problem caused by the latest firmware, after I updated it, my two batteries have the same problem, 99% to 4% in a sec. Cannot fly any more. Please let Parrot know this problem and issue the new one to recover it. Now my two batteries and the spider seems a rubbish. So poor!

    • Arnaud

      Exactly the same problem… I’m gonna exchange it from the store where I bought it, in order to have the old firmware version shipped with it…

      • http://www.parrot.com Parrot

        Please contact our support team which should be able to help you: http://www.parrot.com/hotline

        • Arnaud

          Thank you for your answer. I did already contact your support team, who answered that the drone must be returned to the store, which was indeed my first idea.
          You should give public feedback about those battery issues rather than treating it like it is a case-by-case problem, otherwise customers will start to go for other brands.

  • mauricio

  • Alan Li

    I couldn’t connect my phone or find my drone, I had my Bluetooth on but it just not finding my drone.

    Plz help, I was so looking forward to it, got a bit dissapointed after seeing all the comment

    • DroneFlyer

      same thing happened to me, because i didn’t have bluetooth 4.0. maybe you do. check that. i bought a smart phone at radio shack to use simply as a controller for the phone, costing only like forty dollars. just make sure it has new enough bluetooth software… works great.

  • Keith B

    Rolling Spider purchased today connects fine to iPhone but NOT to iPad Air.Why is that?

  • Rafael2884

    I think the battery of the Rolling Spider, could be a battery that lasted at least 20 minutes, although the Rolling eSpider makes very many hard , do not think it worthwhile to charge the battery 1h and 30 min , to last for 6-8 minutes.
    I hope the company Parrot fix this problem.
    Thank You.

  • Keith B

    Rolling Spider purchased four days ago-battery life is two minutes.E mail sent to Parrot tech support,awaiting response.No good is it?I’m waiting for a Bebop to be delivered- I hope I won’t have the same problem………Not at that price!

    So I just got the drone. Worked fine on my dads ipad but I have been unable to connect it to my iPhone 4s. I have tried the various things I have read online (disable location services, photos and putting my phone in airplane mode) but whenever I begin to auto connect to my rolling spider the app crashes/closes out when it gets to “sending all settings”. Any tips?

      Hey Brent, I am facing similar problem now. Have you figured this out?

  • Veronica Tam

  • John D

    Good Day to Everyone
    I just spent the past few days checking videos, reviews and all kinds of posts about the Rolling Spider. I am completely new to drones, and wanted to buy a relatively inexpensive yet well-built and technologically advanced quad-cop with which to learn the basics and have some genuine fun (before moving on to a bigger, more expensive and HD camera equipped drone later on).
    I’ve had the Rolling Spider for 3 days now, and have been playing with it a fair amount. Despite most users being happy with overall build, specs etc, I was getting increasingly worried about the numerous negative comments regarding battery life, easy damage and disappearing drones (flying away in the sky for no apparent reason).
    For this reason I have been very conservative so far, and have been using it ONLY indoors and WITH the wheels on at all times. I’m waiting for the extra propellers and an extra battery before I test it without the wheels and will PERHAPS take it outdoor.
    As for my experience, I have to say the drone is very well built, looks great, is very stable and is generally a lot of fun. Haven’t had battery problems (yet), and duration is pretty much as advertised. I am quite scared by the comments about the rolling spider flying off in the open, so before I move on to an outside environment I think I might try it in a factory/large gym. Just about 30 minutes ago I was flying it in my apartment and it completely ignored my 2.6m max height limit and flew right into the ceiling – promptly pushing the emergency button and having a ceiling to stop it prevented my minidrone from disappearing, but I can definitely see it ignoring your command and flying off in the open. Maybe its a software bug that needs to be fixed, but I seem to understand this has been a common problem with drones of all brands, sizes and price-tags (including DJI).

    Anyway, keep the posts coming, and lets see if we can come up with more and more creative ways to use this fun-packed minidrone!

  • Mark Notten

    I just got Rolling Spider. Battery was at 8% after a 20 second first flight. So I plugged it into a USB charger for 6 hrs now. Cannot connect to it and no eyes lit. When I disconnect then reconnect the USB I see first 2 eyes red, then one turns yellow then goes out and one stays red for several seconds.

    It connects to FF3 for 5 seconds when I unplug the cable then plug it in again.

    Tried all the obvious – cable and charger – Both seem fine.
    Any suggestions?

  • dominoes30

    Hi, I am looking to buy a rolling spider and I have read all the comments on this page and they all say about the battery. Is the battery flaw in all of the mini drones or just because so many people bought the product instead of a flaw in 1/20 its 1/5. I had a problem with my sumo and am wondering if it’s worth buying a rolling spider. If the battery does fail can you get another one without additional cost? The battery problem has happened to me on almost all my r/c helicopters mostly from AirHogs.

    Please reply

    Hi I just got the RS Drone 2 days ago. Battery very poor as expected. Initially the drone used to turn off with on/off switch but now the drone’s left eye led is always red and even though it disconnects from the app. I need to physically remove the battery to turn it off or else it stays on till the battery drains. Any suggestions???

    Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

    what is the “Flat Trim” button for?
    Also, does the “Road Map” feature in FreeFlight3 works for the Rolling Spider?

    • http://www.parrot.com Parrot

      The Road Plan is only available for Jumping Sumo
      Before every flight, be sure the Rolling Spider is placed on a flat surface, then press the ‘Flat Trim’ button once.

      • turboroof

        so the Flat Trim is for calibrating the leveling?

        I would sincerely disregard this company as anything but customer support or service. They lost my drone, I shipped it to the address I was asked to and when they contacted me about my drone that I sent in they have done nothing to help me one way or another. I got a drone for a Christmas present last year, started having problems with it and contacted support back in January I sent it off and now it’s lost, no real proof I ever even got a rolling spider for a Christmas present other than a receipt for the drone and a receipt for the shipping to the repair facility.
        Hate this company!!!!!!

    My Parrot Rolling Spider won’t connect to my phone. I’ve tried updating it through the computer, It just starts at a red light, then it alternates yellow light between it’s 2 eyes. I have Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

  • bigrand1

    Been reading all this here and on other sites, about the lousy batteries, faulty software updates, and the drone heading straight up and disappearing. Very disappointing, to say the least. Really makes it hard to actually wanna buy one of these after hearing everything being said. So, as far as the batteries are concerned, what’s the consensus here? Good to go if I just buy some other batteries? Are they any better than the ones that come with the unit? Not really hearing what the deal is with the other two problems. Seems pretty universal, these issues. Does the company even acknowlege that there ARE these problems? From what I’ve heard, by all accounts, there doesn’t seem to be ANY customer service, and if someone actually does talk to a real live human, they are very rude to you and unhelpful! This is pretty sad. And has anyone else thought as they’ve read these same problems people are having here, that here and there someone from Parrot pops in briefly every once and awhile and instead of saying anything helpful at ALL, just says the same thing, ” Oh, we’re sorry to hear that. Check our website for help!”, etc. Blah, blah, blah!!! A little common sense tells me to stay FAR away from this stinker if or until something is done to address the common problems people are having with it at this point! Simple as that. Hey, if anything I’ve said is NOT true, set me straight here. I really wanted to get one of these, man, and I don’t want any of this to be true! Just doesn’t make sense to do it now after all this, to me, though.

    Hi! I recently crashed my rolling spider by accident because it went out of control and now one of the propellers is not spinning as fast as the others, causing it to take of sideways and crash into a wall. Help?

    • http://www.parrot.com Parrot

      Hi,

      Are you sure the propeller isn’t just twisted? If it isn’t, it probably is a motor issue. This part is available on our online store: store.parrot.com

    Hello, I bought a few days ago to one minidrone parrot rolling spider.
    I wonder if there is a more powerful battery than the original that I can buy?

    I’m having the same problem with the battery that many users.
    Is battery problem?

    Will be the conexção?

    How do I solve this problem?

    I like the product and do not want to return because of this problem.

    Thank Parrot Support

    Hi
    After all the comparison and reading got my RollingnSpider in India at an exorbitant price of 200$…just to know that any of latest smartphone or tab (Xperia Z3, iPhone 6, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xiaomi mi4, Lenovo ideapad) we have at home is not compatible and I have to get an old and outdated phone to fly my drone.

    Isn’t there a way to connect the newer phones to the Drone

    Just got the spider. Updated fine. I see that it is connected with the Bluetooth, but I cannot figure out how to get to the screen to fly it. Was fine yesterday. Today when I open the App it goes to the main screen where you can buy a flight plan or watch the tutorials. I signed up for the free account thinking that would help. I can see my drone on the menu and my flight from yesterday but no start button or anything like that. Tried turning off Bluetooth and turning it back on. Any suggestions? Seems like an app issue.

    I have had the airborne cargo since late december and i have loved it. Unfortunately it suffered a crash last night and now is completely uncontrollable. When i hit the take off button it takes off and doesnt stop. I have held the power button for 20 seconds to reset it and reset my settings in the app at least 6 times and it still has the same problem. Does anyone have a fix for this situation?
