Accessories for the
Parrot AR Drone

On this page you will find all of the accessories that we offer to enhance the Parrot AR Drone.  These items are sold separately from the LED kits.  If you wish to buy an item from this page AND one of our kits, contact us FIRST, and we can combine the items manually (so you don’t pay double shipping)

TronAGE.com Battery Buddy

Here is the latest and greatest from TronAGE.com, our battery buddy that allows you to charge your USB devices (iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle, etc.) using the Parrot AR drone battery packs (or any 12volt LiPo pack) without the fear of over discharge!  The device will cutoff at a safe voltage to prevent over discharge of the battery pack.  Anything that is powered or charged via USB can be used with the Battery Buddy.

Special Note for devices that need 2 amps: this device will output 1amp of power (identical to a computer usb port), so if you connect an ipad (which uses 2amps to charge from its wall charger) it will show "not charging" on the ipad.  It *is* charging but slowly, this issue is not specific to the battery buddy (this will also happen with any usb device that only outputs 1 amp) such as usb ports found on computers.

 

Included:

    • Battery Buddy
      • 12v input power from Parrot AR Drone Batteries (or any 12v LiPo pack)
      • 5v USB output with voltage monitoring  to protect over discharge of battery
      • Also available without the protection module for a discounted price.

LED Lighted Landing Gear

I always feel that video speaks much louder then text so here is a video showing the Lighted Landing Gear for the drone.  It is super bright, and looks amazing. 

 

Here is a video showing the different color and power options:

 

Included:

    • “Lighted” Portion LEDs with wire harness
      • lighted-s
    • “Landing Gear” Portion
      • gear-s
    • 4x Black Zip Ties
      • ziptie-s

 

  • Explanation of the four different power connector choices:
    • Replace Ring:
      • As shown in the video, compatible with Tronage.com LED kits and replaces the bottom mounted LED ring. (reduces total weight and power consumption since ring is not in use)
    • Add to Ring:
      • compatible with Tronage.com LED kits.  The ring plugs into the lighted landing gear, and the gear then plugs into your kit.  This allows you to use BOTH the Lighted landing gear, and your existing ring (Looks amazing with lots of downward facing light!)
    • Stand-Alone Standard:
      • Don’t own a Tronage.com LED kit, but want the Lighted Landing Gear?  No problem, This allows the kit to be used all by itself (no additional kit required).  The battery plugs onto the kit, and the kit plugs into the drone.  It is compatible with all batteries for the AR Drone, including the stock pack from Parrot.
    • Stand-Alone Special:
      • Don’t own a Tronage.com LED kit, but want the Lighted Landing Gear? This allows the kit to be used all by itself (no additional kit required).  It is compatible only with after-market battery packs that have a separate balance tap (battery has two sets of wires coming out of it).  The kit will plug onto the JST-XH balance tap of your battery pack,  This connector is NOT compatible with the Stock packs from Parrot.

Support video:

I created an installation guide video.  This is to aid those who are on the fence, and would like to see exactly what you get when you get it.  As well how easy it is to install.  The video is available on our support page.

Replacement Bottom Ring

Just got a new batch of rings and these are better then before.  These are the exact same rings that will be going onto all new kits sold.  The build quality is great and they fit the drone underside perfectly.  I offer them here as a replacement just incase you crash and break your current one.  It is also available as a stand alone ring (no LED kit required) just plug it on your drone and away you go.

Included:

    • Bright White LED ring with black background
      • ring1

The descriptions for the different power options are the same as the lighted landing gear above, please see them if you need help choosing your power connector.

Bottom Plates

CLEAR AND MATTE WHITE!

Specify which you want in the options below.

I always feel that video speaks much louder then text so here is a video showing the clear bottom plate installed on a drone, and how sweet it looks and how easy it is to install onto the drone.

 

Included:

    • Clear Bottom Plate with double stick tape pre-applied.
      • clearplate-s

Replacement Mounting Tape

 

Available in both the “Standard” and “Golden” form.  You will receive enough mounting tape to re-mount your entire kit.  Make sure to select below which kit you have, and which type of mounting you want!

If you are having issues with the 3M mounting tape that comes standard with the LED strips, then the Golden Mounting tape is your solution.  It isn't as effected by humidity and temperature, and is more resilient when bonded to plastics and foam (to combat oil and plasticizers).  This is just one solution to the problem and by no means a requirement.  There are other solutions offered in the notes at the bottom of the product pages.

Stand Alone Accessory

What to do when you want to power up your LED ring, or your Lighted Landing Gear, but you are not using the hull that you have a TronAGE.com kit installed on?  Well now you have an option to plug them in “stand alone” without the kit!  Here is a quick video showing how easy it is to use and install:

 

Included:

    • Stand Alone Accessory
      • sa-accesory
    • Below you will find an option to have the standard connections (pictured above) or to have the special connection for after market batteries.  Select the option that matches your battery type.
    • We also have a third option, the Standard to Special. 
      • This accessory will plug into a battery pack that has the standard connectors (like the parrot brand ones) and then have the special connector on the other end). 
      • This is for those who use BOTH Parrot brand packs AND after market ones. 
      • You would order your kit to be configured for the special connector, and then order one of these accessories to allow your kit to work with a normal pack.

Repair service:

Please contact us if you run into trouble with your light kit, we may be able to assist.  Each situation is unique, so let us know what happened and if a repair is possible we will reply with a quote for the cost of the repair.

Disclaimers:

  • Myself, nor Tuxedo Scuba, nor TronAGE.com, nor any of its employees are responsible for any and all damage that the led kit may directly or indirectly cause to the AR Drone or any other property.
  • All LED light kits are built to order, we do not keep an inventory of pre-made kits (because of the  options offered).  Because of this please allow a few days to build the kit before it is shipped. 
  • If you wish your shipment to be insured, please select from the drop-down below and then add to cart.
    • Total cost of order (amount to insure package for)
    • The insurance available above is for Domestic (USA) only.  If you are an international buyer, and wish to have your order insured, please contact us prior to placing your order.  This allows us to adjust the price appropriate for your country. 
    • We are not responsible for any shipments that are lost or damaged in transit. 
    • Please contact your local United States Post Office to file a claim.
  • All LED light kits are tested before they are shipped. It is impossible for me know if any damage was caused in shipping, misuse, poor installation, or a crash with the drone.  For this reason all sales are final.
  • LED kits have exposed electrical components. 
    • Do not use in the rain, or where there is a possibility of them getting wet.
  • As with all batteries they can only supply so much power, so the more accessories you chain together some LEDs may appear slightly dimmer then if hooked up separately.  This is normal and expected.
  • Warning: leaving the LEDs connected to a LiPo pack for an extended amount of time (especially a non-parrot brand one without over discharge protection) can be hazardous.  Please use your LED kit  responsibly and do not over-discharge your pack with the kit.  As mentioned we are not responsible for any damage caused to the pack, or to the drone, or any other property.
