Limitations: Don't exceed the range of your WiFi. If you fly the Parrot past the range of your SHIELD controller's WiFi, you may crash or worse yet, have it fly completly away and you may lose it.

While this will not hurt as badly as losing a $500 or $1000 DJI drone, which by the way have also been known to fly away. Or as some like to say, activate their built in "Return to Hong Kong Mode." It still hurts when you lose one. Both financially and also to your ego.

The SHIELD Portable is a great controller that will help you fly your Parrot drone really well. Plus it can do double duty as a great portable gaming device and streaming platform for watching movies, TV shows from Hulu, Netflix and more on the go.
