Parrot Swing and Flypad Minidrone
Parrot Swing and Flypad Minidrone
The Parrot Swing Minidrone uniquely combines the stability of a quadcopter and the power of a plane. It can take off and land like a drone, yet it's able to fly like a plane. Swing comes with autopilot and a vertical take-off and landing mode - and can soar at speeds up to 30.6 kph (19 mph). Plus you can pilot it like a pro with the new Parrot Flypad controller or the FreeFlight Mini app on your iPhone or iPad.
In Quadcopter mode, piloting Swing is simple and intuitive. The autopilot functionality ensures that that it will stay stable and hover, even if you let go of the controls. In Plane Mode, race around corners with high-speed turns and manoeuvres. You can also enjoy plenty of thrills with in flight acrobatics: flips, dives, loops and many more.
Parrot Flypad lets you customise your piloting controls for the Parrot Swing Minidrone, and extends your flight range to up to 61 m (200 ft.). Mount your iPhone to the Flypad using the included stand, and monitor both battery power and flight time on your screen. You can also use your iPhone to connect to the controller and customise your settings to match your piloting preferences. For example, you can pilot using virtual joysticks in Joypad mode (default setting), or by tilting your iPhone or iPad in the direction you want your drone to go in Accelerometer mode.

The FreeFlight Mini App automatically detects which Parrot Minidrone you are using.
Simply turn on your drone, activate Bluetooth on your smartphone/tablet and open the application. Select your drone from the list that appears on the screen. Your drone will then connect and you are ready for take-off! If you’re using Mambo FPV, activate wifi on your iDevice and connect to your drone in the app.
List of drones compatible with this application: Parrot Mambo, Parrot Swing, Parrot Minidrones Airborne Night and Cargo, Hydrofoil*, and Rolling Spider.
*For Hydrofoil: place the Airborne Minidrone into the Hydrofoil structure, select Hydrofoil mode in settings, and start sailing across the water.
Parrot MAMBO FPV NEW FEATURES
The application will instantly recognize the FPV camera that you have connected to your Parrot Mambo. You can now save and transmit HD video content in real time! To completely immerse yourself in the FPV experience, simply place your iDevice in your Parrot Cockpit Glasses 2. You’ll see exactly what your drone sees and discover new, thrilling sensations thanks to this innovative function.
Become a FPV racing pilot using the three new pilot modes. Start with the Easy mode, which will keep your drone’s position in the air even after the controls have been released. Then, move on to Drift mode. This mode deactivates the horizontal stabilization, thus allowing for sharps turns and more complex maneuvers. Last but not least, push your piloting skills to the limit and try the new Racing mode. You’ll have complete control of the drone with no stabilization assistance. The possibilities are endless!
