The Parrot Mambo gets new skills thanks to the introduction of an FPV HD camera. It is also packing the all new Parrot Cockpitglasses 2 (FPV goggles) and accompanying Parrot Flypad piloting controller.

Expert or beginner pilots, everyone has their own style

Mambo is a quadcopter that offers awesome flight stability.

The Parrot Mambo embeds the highest performing technologies and an ultra-powerful autopilot. Quick and agile, it delivers bursts of speeds of up to 30km/h – and as an expert of stunt flying, a range of airborne acrobatics!

Easy to handle and agile, the drone comes with three piloting modes especially designed to suit all skillsets – from beginner to expert.

Easy

The ideal mode for those at the early stages of piloting a drone. Everything is under control in this mode, making sure that the Parrot Mambo is stabilised both horizontally and vertically – and the autopilot assists you on each maneuver.

Drift

The horizontal stabilization is disconnected. The Parrot Mambo flies with quick precision and performs sharp turns – creating a truly dynamic piloting experience.

Racing

Finally, this is the ultimate race mode. The autopilot is completely disconnected and piloting is at your complete control. The Parrot Mambo in Racing Mode doesn’t provide any assistance, stability is completely managed by you, and all the flight settings are in your experienced hands.

Parrot Flypad, high-precision performance

Piloting via the FreeFlight Mini app, Parrot Mambo FPV is also equipped, as a standard, with the Parrot Flypad controller.
