Hello,

I'm happy to announce that our first app for a Parrot drone, that does not fly, is available on iTunes. It's Sumo Control for the jumping Sumo, jumping Race and jumping Night. This is what it looks like:

Key features:

Setting profiles - comes with two different settings profiles for beginner and experts. But you can add as many settings / user profiles as you want. You can even share setting profiles with your friends or your own devices via Air Drop and Email.

Drive Timer - the timer shows exactly how long you are driving.

Quick turn button - drag the quick turn button up or down for precise 180° turns and right or left for precise 90° turns.

Choose between different crosshair designs and scales.

Shows wifi signal strength. Setup your own wifi warnings.

MFI gamepad support - control your drone with any MFI gamepad that has two additional joysticks like the Stratus Steel, Moga Ace Power or the Mad Catz CTRLi. You can assign every button to every available function in the settings.

Offline Mode - explore the app without being connected to your drone.

Configurable user interface - you can show/hide every button.

Supports imperial and metric units.

Choose between different control modes.

Run predefined animations.

Everything is stored on your device. We do not collect or transmit any data.

This is a quick demonstration of the control modes in the app. Please note that due to patent reasons some of the modes are not available in the US version. (Sumo Control US)

Control Modes:
-virtual joysticks (each left-handed and right-handed)
-virtual joysticks but one-handed mode (each left-handed and right-handed)
-tilt control to control backwards/forwards with tilt and left/right with the joysticks. This is like the standard AR.Drone control mode.
-complete tilt control (one-handed) it takes some practise to get used to it but this one is really sweet. (each left-handed and right-handed)
