[prMac.com] Stuttgart, Germany – Available for iPhone today, SumoFPV combines cardboard-style virtual reality with Parrot’s camera packing mini drone to bring true first person piloting to everyone. SumoFPV picks up where the official FreeFlight app left off, providing a range of previously missing features including gamepad support, VR mode, head-tracking and more. With SumoFPV connected to the drone users can control their Jumping Sumo with either a VR Headset, a traditional gamepad or both.
In VR Mode, the Jumping Sumo is controlled solely by the pilot’s movements. By use of head-tracking the pilot can tilt his head left or right and the drone will follow. When tilting forward or backward the drone will move forward or backward as well.
Gamepad Mode offers a traditional way of precisely controlling the Jumping Sumo using any iOS compatible gamepad.
Combined Mode offers the best of VR and Gamepad Mode by allowing for precise gamepad controls combined with an immersive VR display and the freedom of head-tracking.
