Parrot makes cool mid-range rolling, flying and hybrid drones as well as some pretty cool forward-thinking tech gadgets. Their main flying drones are called the bebop and the AR Drone. They are a lot more toy looking than Walkera and DJI Phantom drones, but don't let their bright colors and ease of assembly fool you. They fly great and are well designed,.
These are great little machines with a cool app and a price tag that makes them much more affordable than their bigger brothers.
And they have a SWEET controller - the Bebop Drone Skycontroller.
Parrot also designs some great rolling drones. Their Sumo is a fat wheeled roller with a camera that looks like something out of a science fiction movie, and their Rolling Spider Mini Drone both rolls and flys.
