Parrot Airborne Cargo Minidrone – Mars

• Customisable with a brick plate on its back for carrying the pilot figure included
• 550mAh battery can last up to nine minutes and is fully chargeable in just 25 minutes
• Sophisticated stabilising autopilot system to help beginners learn to fly
• Perform aerobatic flips and turns with just one touch

What makes this drone different?
The ultra-lightweight design of this quadcopter makes it quick through the air and allows it to corner sharply. This drone comes with a customisable Lego-style plate on its back allowing you to carry the included pilot figure or add your own brick man. Its USB charger allows you to charge on the move by using items such as a power bank and the 1GB of internal memory means you can capture photographs without having to add extra weight with memory cards.

How do I control the drone?
The drone is fully controllable through the FreeFlight3 app, which is downloadable from the Apple, Android and Microsoft stores, as well as connecting via Bluetooth to your device. The controls are simple enough to use on your touchscreen and allow for aerobatic tricks to be performed with the press of a button. The onscreen telemetry display shows you your height and speed as well as allowing you to take pictures as you fly.

What sort of performance should I expect to see from the Parrot Airborne Cargo?
The quadcopter can fly at a speed of 18km/h which equates to 5m/s. This gives you a fast flying drone that can flip and turn on a sixpence at the press of a button. You will be able to run the drone for roughly nine minutes on a single charge with its 550mAh LiPo battery and can recharge via USB, making it easier to recharge if you’re out in the field.

I press the bottom for taking pictures and nothing. I make it fly and everything, just the camera doesn't seem to work. My drone is new, it is Mars airborne cargo drone model.  Thank you
