What’s different about the Mambo?
This fun drone can be flown indoors and outdoors and can be controlled easily from your phone or Flypad controller (not included - Order Code A68WC). The Mambo comes with two attachments, the cannon and the grabber, which slot onto the drone quickly and easily and allow for hours of fun. The drone also includes bumpers for all its propellers and has a unique ‘free fall’ take off system. Do amazing tricks with your Mambo and capture images of the world around you with its built-in camera and integrated memory.

What can I do with the accessories?
Take advantage of the stability of this quadcopter by using the cannon accessory for target practice. The cannon comes with a 6 ball magazine and is capable of up to one shot every 1.5 seconds. The mechanical firing mechanism allows you to shoot the soft impact 6mm balls straight up to 2m.

The grabber can carry items up to 4g wherever you want to send them. With a timer system to open and close the grabber you can set it to be open or closed as it moves. The grabber is in the best position to pick up objects just under and in front of the drone. In the event of a crash the grabber opens automatically. See what you can do, whether you’re giving a friend a card or adding sugar to your drink.

How can I control my drone?
Control your Minidrone from your phone over Bluetooth or connect to the Flypad controller (not included) for a boosted 60m range, thumbsticks and shortcut buttons. The FreeFlight Mini app gives you control of your Mambo and accessories when they are plug into the drone. The drone can travel up to 5mph and comes with a battery that lets you fly for up to nine minutes without bumpers or attachments or eight minutes with them.

What can the camera do?
Get VGA (640 x 480 pixel) resolution images with the 0.3MP vertical camera. Store up to 1GB of images on the internal storage on the drone. See what you capture from the skies using the USB lead to transfer the JPEG images to your computer or compatible device.




Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extras Had this given for Christmas and love it great control indoors very stable haven't tried outdoors yet! Cold and wet ! Has potential to be quite fast and fun. Gun attachment easy to use green balls over grass might not be the best colour to find again ? Grabber attachment great fun pick up and drop off objects upto 4grams. Found the camera good not great a little slow to capture image and only VGA .3 MP but still very good fun. Awesome flight time 8 ish minutes for 25 charge time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One the good ones. I will state I have bought quite a few and parrot, drone have been the most stable. First day I opened the mambo I was learning to play with setting after launching it. Well to my surprise I forgot about it. Well many moments later I start to hear beers as is has used the batteries life. Time to recharge. To my enjoyment t the mambo was flying in exact spot from take off. I will say this is a very great drone to learn flight with. Only issue is the sensor below due to being so close to the ground it makes it do circles and fly eratic. Other than that I had no complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wee Drone I bought this along with the FlyPad in Sept 2016. I already had a Rolling Spider and this Drone is far superior to it. The included accessories are fun but not essential to its enjoyment its aerobatics and agility make it very easy to fly for even a beginner. FreeFlight Mini allows all parameters to be adjusted slowing things down for indoors or ramping things up for outdoors. Summing up this is my favourite minidrone as I use it more than my others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect mini drone This is by far the best mini drone I have had. While I have had many, the Parrot Mambo is in a different league than the others. For starters the quality is way above other manufacturers. As for the flying itself, it is excellent with outstanding altitude and position hold. It is incredibly durable as well. The app works perfect.
