The propeller stopped and AR Drone 2 crashed to the ground with Stone. Although it crashed from a place not so high, it seems that it is not a calm thing if it thinks that this is a crash from a sky of several meters to several tens of meters.

This vulnerability is a security consultant'sPlanet ZudaIt is what made it clear. It is said that Wi-Fi is used for AR Drone 2 control, and the signal is not encrypted and SSID is not hidden. Although the detailed method is unknown, it seems that it is also possible to cancel the connection between the smartphone and AR Drone 2 and crash it, or take over the maneuver itself and skip it as it is.

In addition, the model such as "Phantom 3" sold by DJI does not use Wi-Fi for maneuvering, and similar problems are not confirmed because radio waves for radio control are used. Planet Zuda has already notified this issue to the selling Parrot, and what kind of measures Parrot will take is not announced at the time of writing the article.
