What makes this drone different?
The ultra-lightweight design of this quadcopter makes it quick through the air and allows it corner sharply. This drone comes with super bright white LED lights built-in allowing you to fly at night and not lose sight of it. Its USB charger allows you to charge on the move by using items such as a power bank and the 32MB of internal memory allows you to capture photographs without having to add extra weight with memory cards.

How do I control the drone?
The drone is full controllable through the Freeflight3 app, which is downloadable from the Apple, Android and Microsoft markets, 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 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 night?
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like it I do own 4 types of parrot original minidrone, minidrone BLAZE, minidrone MCLANE, minidrone MAMBO and Minidrone SWING. I do like them all, be the first one that I bought was BLAZE, I straight away fall in love with it flight stability. I also have played many other brands before but nothing compare to Parrots minidrones. It batery indicators and it's power balance has made those even better drone compare to others. The best i have played so far is the newer generation MAMBO, which it's revolutionary auto bank conerring which has made it even better than BLAZE. I dont care much about camera as for myself the satisfaction of real flight control and stability is far more important, nevertheless it is good to have good FRONT livefeed video camera, i know this will somehow reduce flight time, but hopefully Parrot's engineer can integrate this too without compromising flight time. Some how you all will say why not gets Parrot Bebop2 instead if you want frontfeed camera, for your info, I do own Parrot Bebop 2 as well to cater my intrest on good flight photographing. but still it good to see if my minidrone esp Mambo has this front camera features, as well as older generation such as BLAZE and MCCLANE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stability This is my first in house quad, mainly. However, 5 to 10 mph winds outside. NO PROBLEM! The Parrot Night Air is Amazingly Stable. The Picture quality is just as clear as if you was to take a picture from a good quality camera. Don't like the the camera is directly beneath the Air. Wish it was in the front. Also wish it had video capabilities. Over all, love it, love it and fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable Flight I received my Night Maclane as a gift and it has been fun to fly. It is very stable. I particularly like the ability to customize the flying settings to keep it within my novice ability. The interface with my phone is simple and easy. It lacks the tactile feel of a stick controller but I know that is an upgrade option should I choose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Man I love this drone This is not my first drone. Had a couple and unfortunately they break easily and are hard to control. You will not be sorry with this drone. I promise you. Nice and very controllable for its price range . Crashed it a few times and as long as you keep the row bar on you'll be fine. Great app. I feel very in control of this drone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best in the mini lineup! This is by far the best mini drone made by Parrot. My cat and I have had a blast with the mini cannon. I recently purchased the controller I prefer to fly it with the controller over the phone great products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little drone This is a good drone to get into the drone world. The only thing wrong with this drone is that it doesn't fly that great in the dark even with the name airborne night.
