CHINO, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long-range wireless communications products for the home and office, announced today that it has partnered with Parrot, a global leader in wireless devices for mobile phones, to launch a summer contest for AR.Drone 2.0 owners.
Now through September 15, 2013, drone enthusiasts will have a chance to put the latest features of the AR.Drone 2.0 to work by tracking their flight using the GPS Flight Recorder app and posting videos to You Tube filmed with the on-board HD camera. The winner will be chosen from among the submissions based on the uniqueness of the drone’s flight and the shooting location. The contest prize, one of the most powerful long-range WiFi extenders on the market from Amped Wireless, will give the winner the ability to drastically increase the flight radius of the AR.Drone 2.0. The winner will also receive a pair of Parrot Zik Bluetooth headphones with noise cancelling features, touch control so you can switch songs and answer calls by touching the headphones and Parrot concert hall effect sound quality. The prize package is valued at $600.00 USD.
“By using a Wi-Fi extender, drone fliers are able to capture amazing videos and reach distances that were previously impossible,” said Amped Wireless CEO Jason Owen. “The span of a flight can be increased three-fold simply by plugging one of our range extenders into a portable power source, selecting the drone’s internal Wi-Fi network and boosting its power. All of which can be done in a matter of minutes and results in incredible video footage as proven by the entries we have already received.”
To submit an entry for the contest, use the GPS Flight Recorder to mark the starting and ending locations of a flight. Post the footage from that flight to You Tube and tag the video with “ARDRONEGPSCONTEST”.
