Hacking the AR-DRONE Parrot

In this post I will talk about the AR-Drone Parrot.
These user-controlled helicopters are getting very popular, and a lot of people are using them in city parks and gardens.

Time ago, a friend told me he had bought one of this helicopters, so I meet him and his toy to perform some investigations. I now these is nothing new, and very good presentations does exist regarding UAVs (check rootedCon 2012 presentation by Hugo Teso), but is the first time I see this kind of drone in the Real-World 😀

First to be said, this drones can be controlled with an iPhone app via open wireless connection, so evil things can happend meanwhile the drone is operated by an legitime user ]:-)
