Take a look under the hood of Parrot's AR.Drone 2.0 with Electronic Design Technology Editor Bill Wong. The AR.Drone uses a distributed microcontroller system to handle motors, flight control and a 720p video camera, all of which can be controlled by a smartphone or tablet.

Sorry, not a NiCad battery. None of these drones would be practical or long running if they were using nicads. This one and all others I know of use Lipoly batteries.
