What can I do with the Parrot Swing?
Whether you want a stable, easy to fly drone or a more adventurous racing model this is the drone for you. Take off and land in quad mode then switch easily to the X-shaped plane mode. The drone doesn’t invert its controls on its back so it’s really easy to go from one mode to another. In plane mode you can travel up to 19mph and try your hand at tricks like looping and barrel rolls. See what you can do with this amazingly versatile drone.

How long can the Swing fly for?
Have fun with up to eight and a half minutes of flight time from a single 550mAh battery. Fly for up to 60m with the Flypad or up to 20m using your smart device. Use the FreeFlight Mini app to control your drone and switch easily between modes. The Swing Minidrone also comes with the Parrot Flypad with two joysticks and shortcut buttons to give you a completely different experience to flying your drone. You can combine the two and use your Flypad to control your drone while your smartphone gives you additional information about it like flight time and battery status.

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 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant fun drone. I had this drone for 4 months now and it still flies perfectly. The only disappointment is it doesn't have a camera but if it does then it be brilliant to see the view especially the airplane mode. The quality is quite decent but the wings are foam so it can easily be fragile and taken out by the strong winds. The drone is really fun to fly and I never have any network problems involving the drone or a controller. It is really easy to set up by simply connect the controller and the drone. Bluetooth made it a lot easier and never disconnected unless I turn it off. So I very impressed about the drone. I will buy more drones that had Bluetooth in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Minidrone I'm so happy with the Parrot Swing it's a lot of fun because it's like to have one Drone and one Plane at the same time .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun I bought this last fall and only stopped flying when the snow came in. It has a high top speed and can handle some fairly gusty days. The battery life is much longer than the cargo transport minidrone I have which is nice. I've crashed a couple times (unfortunately), but the vehicle suffered no damage and flew right after.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good intro drone... Wish Battery lasted longer Very easy to set up and fly. Battery only lasts about 5-6 minutes, a bit shorter than advertised. Feels flimsy but it has survived crashing into a couple trees and my house a few times

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate toy! I have quadcopters and I've had airplanes but to have both at the same time is truest amazing especially in such a small package! Easy to fly and very durable! A definite must have!

Hi, I'm planning on purchasing this drone however I would like to upgrade the batteries. I have a pair of 5000mAh. Would the drone still work as normal with these batteries?

Asked by: Djcarratt
Unfortunately, Maplin do not advise on product modification as this will void warranty.
