The Hydroptere Team welcomes Parrot, designer of the Minidrone Hydrofoil toy, as its new sponsor

The giant hydrofoil meets the smallest hydrofoil!
“I have spent my past 20 years to make it a reality and build the fastest Hydrofoil boat on earth. When I saw Parrot succeeded in making a Hydrofoil toy, I wanted to meet the engineers behind it” says Alain Thebault, designer and skipper of Hydroptere.
The Parrot Hydrofoil drone is an app-controlled toy. It will be available this Summer. It is built on the very same idea as Hydroptere, but much smaller! Parrot's Hydrofoil Drone rise out of the water at 6 mph (5.4 knots) on water. While Hydroptere relies on wind to power it, the Parrot Hydrofoil takes advantage of a drone engines. Thanks to the four propellers of the flying Minidrone attached to its body, the Hydrofoil glides on the water and stays about 2 inches above it with amazing stability and agility.
“Parrot is proud to sponsor Hydroptere. It is our hope that Alain and his team can break the world record of sailing between Los Angeles and Hawaii” says Henri Seydoux, Parrot CEO and founder.
