One Drone, Multiple Accessories
The Parrot Mambo minidrone comes equipped with two new accessories that help turn the sky into a playground! Fire miniature balls at moving objects with the Cannon, or move objects through the air using the Grabber claw. You can also enjoy acrobatic tricks and flips in flight. This super robust and easy to handle Minidrone will measure up to all your challenges.
Interact with other drones and pilots using the included Cannon accessory. Attach the Cannon to your Parrot Mambo and let the games begin!
Test your skills with target practice, and fire these little balls at a pyramid of cups or other light-weight targets.
You can load up to 6 pellets into the Cannon at a time. The first pilot to knock everything down wins!
Would you like to do something out of the ordinary and surprise everyone? Attach the Grabber to the Parrot Mambo and use it to transport mini-objects that weigh up to 4g to a new location.
Simply activate the claw on the home screen of your FreeFlight Mini app, carry something up into the air, and put it down wherever you want.
Thanks to an advanced flight controller and high performance sensors, the Parrot Mambo is easy to pilot and control.
In addition, the autopilot functionality ensures that it will stay stable and hover, even if you let go of the controls.
Lastly, the Parrot Mambo comes equipped with and automatic 'shutdown system' that cuts the motors off in case of a crash or collision.
Download, and You're Ready to Have Fun
FreeFlight Mini’s easy-to-use interface makes piloting simple, even for beginner pilots. The app connects to your Minidrone via Bluetooth Low Energy.
Once connected, select your preferred piloting method and take-off. You can pilot using virtual joysticks in Joypad mode (default setting), or by tilting your smartphone/tablet in the direction you want your drone to go in Accelerometer mode.
Tips for getting started
- Before takeoff, be sure to update your Mambo's software and fully charge its battery. For double the flight time and twice the fun, pick up an extra battery with your purchase.
- If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support team.
One drone, multiple missions. Mambo's exclusive accessories make piloting an interactive experience, indoor or outdoor, solo or with friends.

That being said - this drone is "smart". It adjusts for wind - when you let go of the control, it stops in mid air. Now that is "great for beginners". I hovered this drone in front of my full sized fan at full blast - it hovered in front of the fan until I controlled it away. When it crashed - the engine cuts. This may not sound great but, it is a blade saver.
I could go on and on (and I did - doh).
Even though it's great for beginners - I've ordered the flight control - I can't wait to get it and unleash my intermediate skills!
PS - the gun and grabber work really well - we have nerf wars at work - I've enjoyed hovering this in front of people and popping them with this lil' feller - very satisfying - my co-workers loved it.
PSS - standard airsoft bullets will work
Parrot don't make drones which are suitable for aerial filmmaking or drone racing, they make toys for fun and this drone is about as much fun as it gets.
It's really sturdy and super stable in flight. No RC experience is required. You press one button and it takes off and hovers 1m off the ground, press again and it will land. After that a few minutes experimenting with the controls and I was able to navigate carefully around my living room without crashing. So far I have only flown with the android app, but I have ordered a flypad, which promises better control and better range.
It has two fun accessories. The first is the cannon, which is self explanatory, firing tiny green beads effectively enough to knock over a paper cup or annoy your coworkers. The second is a grabber, but in practice it is impossible to pick something up while in flight. The mambo can't maintain a stable hover below 1 foot. This is not a fault with the drone - ground effects from the propwash mean that it is very difficult to do this with any quadcopter. However you can close the grabber on an object while the drone is on the ground and then take off, dropping it later.
It has a tiny 0.3MP camera underneath pointing vertically downwards, and some have complained that this is a little pointless, but the secret is that it uses this camera to hold its position horizontally. Vertically, it holds position using ultrasound at low altitude and a barometer at high altitude. You can set it to hover, leave it for a minute, check out something, come back and it will be roughly the same position. In fact I flew the drone at a ruin and accidently flew it out a small window losing sight and signal. When I went looking for it I found it hovering in place waiting for me.
Supposedly it can only carry 4g of load, but I tested it with magnetic buckyballs and it managed to take off just under 20 grams.
I timed it as just under 8 minutes flying time with the bumpers attached (no load, grabber or cannon). This sounds short, but in reality this is par for the course for this kind of drone. Parrot claim 9 minutes if the bumpers are detached, but I wouldn't recommend risking the props for 1 extra minute flying time. There is also a few neat features. You can set it to throw to take off. In this mode the props are started at a low rev, but when it detects you throwing it powers up and hovers where you throw it. Secondly it does acrobatic flips, when you double tap the screen. This is looks really cool, it pumps the throttle to get a bit of height and then flips (forward, backward, left or right) ending up where it started. It also includes a lego brick suitable for carrying stuff. Attached is a photo of the Mambo carrying Poppy the Troll, to the consternation of my toddler.
Edit: To add a few things. First off if you enjoy this toy as much as I have, expect to buy a more batteries, prop guards & props. I've broken two prop guards already. I think parrot should include spare props and guards in the package. Also order a Parrot Flypad, because flying with the phone is vastly inferior.
I impulse bought a drone at Fry's and then immediately returned it because it was practically un-flyable. Then I bought this one. Small, but high quality for it's size and class. So easy to fly. You turn it on, launch it, and it hovers properly. Then using your phone as a controller you can fly it around. The unfortunate part is that the battery life is rather short. But it's a fun way to start playing with a drone.
