Parrot AR.Drone officially launching at E3 2010

Parrot kept telling us that their AR.Drone was set to launch in 2010, and after a while you start to wonder whether the iPhone-controlled quadricopter really is destined for shipping or was only ever likely to be (very cool) vaporware.  Now the French company promises to reveal all – including pricing and release dates – at E3 2010 on June 15th.

Of course, since the AR.Drone was first demonstrated the Apple ecosystem has grown to include the iPad and so, while the thought of an iPhone/iPod touch remote is all well and good, we’re even more excited about the potential for iPad remote control.  Let’s hope Parrot’s engineering teams are busy beavering away at just such a system in advance of E3 2010.
