Amazon Renewed Parrot Mambo Fly – Code, Great to have a go at FPV on a budget. Easy to use.

Parrot mambo is a great drone, enjoyment to fly and effortless to control.

It’s like a brand name new drone even the battery retains a good demand.

Superior for any degree from beginner to seasoned vets.

It is tremendous steady in the air (wind wont blow it to the aspect), it is amazing and pretty higher top quality. I am 10 and i assume this is the best thing ever.

Superior drone but controller has quite restricted array.

Effortless to fly, extra pleasurable as you go, quickly you fly so speedy.

It was a substitution for a person we had thrashed.

Best $50 I’ve spent in quite some time

Cheap FPV, Very stable lightweight drone

,

Everything works awesome this drone absolutely amazing

Ive crashed it a several instances and it even now keeps flying on. Battery stays charged a lot more time than my other drones do.

This is the third mambo i’ve obtained, i use them for teaching about drones/stem. On starter method they are amazingly stable, my six year old daughter can fly like a professional, i have not witnessed her crash nevertheless. You can change modes for much less stabilization and additional handle. Took a single on a go to to her cousins and they put in the working day flying close to with lego minifigs on prime of them (they have a 6 post lego interface on the prime) they even crafted a helix pad in the heart of their lego city for them to acquire off and land, zero crashes that time also.The only unfavorable is that you want to by a lot more batteries in order not to wait 60mins involving 10min flights. I endorse the 3 battery charger so three can be charging at once. The tello is a superior drone (amazing digital camera) but for the funds the mambo is tricky to conquer. Parrot just announced they are discontinuing these so get them when you can.

This previous summer season i structured a digital competencies camp for youngsters ages 9-19. I acquired 5 new and refurbished parrot mambo drones immediately after finding a recommendation from some buddies who are large college librarians. A crucial element was the block coding integration. We utilized these drones with both equally tynker and google workbench. We experienced trouble with pairing when a number of drones have been in the similar developing, particularly on tynker. We typically applied the drones indoors, but took them outside a number of moments. Most important thing to notice is that the motors are quick to crack and anti-clockwise motors are obtaining challenging to come across. Ideally there will be a option for that due to the fact i would surely get much more of these drones and the enlargement packs that are available.

Works well funny , works better with control remote control device.

Easy to fly yet can be extremely challenging.

Very well i had a excellent evaluation, the initial working day i experienced it. But now it will not keep related. Cant use fpv for additional then a pair seconds right before it disconnects. Im not sure if its the product or service alone, or if its the firm who refurbished it. Useless to say, i am sending it again.

Almost everything performs brilliant this drone definitely amazing. The only draw back is it performs remaining and proper roles correctly but front flips and backflips appears to have trouble recovering from the flip goes mad and falls to the ground aggressively. Everything looks okay with it but i really don’t know i’m gonna switch out the propellers and see if it would make a difference but i’m quite certain it is not given that it is really doing left and suitable flips great i am going to be back again with an update if the trouble fixes by positioning new propellers.

Fantastic for a starter to intermediate.

This critique is for the ‘refurbished mambo fly’ model of the drone. This means no digital camera or vr headset is bundled. Make sure you check which version you are purchasing. The drone arrived in a basic brown box labelled ‘parrot qualified refurbished’. Inside ended up the drone, just one battery, manuals and some decals (a person of the decals was missing – no massive offer, i haven’t even used the other ones). There was also a modest clip that attaches to the leading side of the drone and enables it to have compact pieces of paper – ineffective for the most portion other than for a single classroom exercise i had with some kids which included programming the drone to have a concept from just one position to the other. The drone is powerful sufficient to carry the clip with a very little piece of paper or a little lego character. I used a ninjago piece and it flew ok and produced the exercise more dynamic. The parrot mambo is a breeze to flight. Indoors with good illumination it is very steady and responds rapidly to the free of charge flight app which you use to transform your cellphone into a drone controller (by means of bluetooth).

Be patient if you’re new to drones. Makes me look like i’ve been flying for years. In fact i bought a brand new parrot mambo without the accessories for a back up or for someone to play along. Dont care much for the goggles but that’s a personal preference.

After waiting around a although to get a camera by itself i shelled out for the kit which includes the fpv goggles which i will not need to have. I think the mambos are the fantastic drone to study to fly. They only weigh a couple ounces so no registration is needed, and they are beefy enough to fly outside the house in a breeze. Assortment is limited for the reason that it is bluetooth related but that’s ok for this sort of a small drone. The digicam isn’t stabilized at all and has no tilt control, so you happen to be getting uncooked, small-resolution video clip to the smartphone for the fpv and to a micro sd card. I really don’t like traveling with only a smartphone and this deal contains a flypad conbtroller that functions like most others so is great prep for flying bigger drones — this 1 would not just take your head off if you spaz out although it really is heading at you and will not crack up things in the residence, is a good way to study ‘attitude’ manage. The mambos are stabilized making use of a down-facing digicam so they’re pretty secure in a effectively-lit indoors spot, quite hard to fly in the darkish.

Excellent starter drone will help build your flying capabilities,.

Bueno a mi este tipo de drones no me gustaban, pero con este drone mi viewpoint cambio definitivamente. Este es un drone divertido y facil de controlar,auque su punto debil como en casi todos los drone es la bateria la cual a mi me da 7 minutos y se carga en 20 minutos. En definitiva es uno de los drones mas divertidos que e tenido.

Got me hooked on fpv and got a whole set after. Very fun drone, sturdy, lots of flying, fix the camera with a runner band or tape, it can came off. Works well in wifi very durable.

I have purchased six of these. In my belief they are the most effective drones in their class. Extra exact flight manage than all the some others. In addition there are numerous attachments obtainable for these, an fpv camera, a cannon that fires minimal balls, a grabber. I prefer traveling this about the tello drones that i have. Those are terrific drones, the mambo’s are just substantially far more fun to fly, and they are pretty rugged.

It is really easy to operate, my 5 many years aged working with it and can regulate it easilyi use it with the goggles and it is a large amount of entertaining (be knowledgeable of the vertigo immediately after employing it for to start with/second time 😅)the only issue we experienced is that the battery previous for number of minutes, i received four pack batteries just for that to remedy that challenge.

  1. As in all “renewed” products, be prepared for a partial or total doa. My mambo fpv arrived in a generic but sturdy box with all accessories included as described. The mambo itself flys well, but the flypad had a dead l2 switch for the programmed turns. L1 does a 180 rather than the 90 degree increment i expected (from my rolling spider) but that just may be the way it works. Camera would not activate at all. Was supposed to light up when attached to the top, it did not and no indication it should take more than a minute to do so. Did a chat with the “tech support” provided for the mambo but they were unable to help. Just clipped and send stuff like “your flypad will give you a range of. Stuff from the product page.

    It’s like a brand new drone even the battery holds a good charge.
    1. It is very easy to operate, my 5 years old using it and can control it easilyi use it with the goggles and it is a lot of fun (be aware of the vertigo after using it for first/second time 😅)the only issue we had is that the battery last for few minutes, i got 4 pack batteries just for that to solve that issue.

  4. The drone it’s self is dope af. The flight time is trash very very short. 5 min longest flight time i have reached. Connecting to the drone is a massive pain to learn. Seeing ass instructions are of zero help to learn device or controller. Again battery is trash buy extras. I am seriously upset with the product i received compared to the description i was given. But if you take my advice and get at least 4 extra batteries, and take the time to explore this drone blindly with no type of help from manual.

    1. Continuously drops connection from the controller or phone, does not transmit video feed, does not record video, it can take pictures that can only be accessed later from the app. Not sure if i just got a lemon or not but until i see otherwise this is 1 star across the board and will be returned.

    Works great – until it crashes. My company bought over 80 of these refurbished drones and after 6 weeks of moderate use, literally just 7 are still functional. The motors are total crap and stop working the instant the drone hits anything. It’s sad the craftsmanship is so low because this is otherwise a solid beginner drone that is easy to control and manage. This problem, though, is a total deal-breaker. You get what you pay for with drones, so don’t be upset if you drop $40 and it only lasts a couple flights. Save up for something nicer and you’ll be glad you did.

Hopefully there will be a solution for that because i would definitely get more of these drones and the expansion packs that are available.

    1. The camera wouldn’t connect. No fpv, nor would the drone’s signal connect to the app.

    Well i had a great review, the first day i had it. But now it will not stay connected. Cant use fpv for more then a couple seconds before it disconnects. Im not sure if its the product itself, or if its the company who refurbished it. Needless to say, i’m sending it back.

    1. I’ve had this drone for about two years. I’ve bought more batteries, the flypad, the fpv camera, an fpv headset. I’ve moved on to more robust dji type drones since, but i still pull this one out from time to time to do a little local droning. It takes a little learning, and a few firmware updates, but is a great product.

    This is the third mambo i’ve purchased, i use them for teaching about drones/stem. On beginner mode they are amazingly stable, my six year old daughter can fly like a pro, i haven’t seen her crash yet. You can switch modes for less stabilization and more control. Took one on a visit to her cousins and they spent the day flying around with lego minifigs on top of them (they have a six post lego interface on the top) they even built a helix pad in the center of their lego city for them to take off and land, zero crashes that time also.The only negative is that you want to by more batteries in order not to wait 60mins between 10min flights. I recommend the three battery charger so three can be charging at once. The tello is a better drone (amazing camera) but for the money the mambo is hard to beat. Parrot just announced they are discontinuing these so get them while you can.

    1. Reached out to the refurb vendor and they brushed me off. I have 3 dji drones and bought this as a fun toy, but still paid for one with a camera. At least dji drones are as advertised when they arrive even if they cost a lot more.

    1. Can’t rate it because it is used for the same price as new and no camera. This would not have happened if it was new as the box shows from parrot. If it would have been yew that i was told by marie it was new she lie.

    You can’t buy just a camera. They are poorly made and hard to replace and i was suckered again. Bought not a new one but a refutationed one for the same price. This is the second time i’ve spent time on this. My grandson’s birthday has past. Send me a brand new in the box. New parrot fpv mini drone and goggles and battery. And not getting what i wanted for my grandson birthday. Amazon is to blame on notification of any used drone that it’s brand used.

    1. Bought for our daughter months ago (she is in the 8th grade). Finally got it out of the box and charged it. We can’t even get it to turn on. Don’t know what to do now 🙁.

    1. Purchased this as a present for my son. The battery only lasts for a few minutes on a full charge. The drone itself is easy to fly, but the camera and app are horrible. We can rarely get it to connect. When it does, it loses the connection after about 30 seconds. The app crashes and is difficult to use. I would not recommend this product.

  23. I charged the drone and battery then tried to connect the controller to the drone nothing then tried with the camera attached. There’s no way this will captivate the attention of a teenager if they cant get it to work.

      1. This review is for the “refurbished mambo fly” version of the drone. This means no camera or vr headset is included. Please check which version you are purchasing. The drone arrived in a plain brown box labelled “parrot certified refurbished”. Inside were the drone, one battery, manuals and some decals (one of the decals was missing – no big deal, i haven’t even used the other ones). There was also a small clip that attaches to the top side of the drone and allows it to carry small pieces of paper – useless for the most part except for one classroom activity i had with some kids which involved programming the drone to carry a message from one point to the other. The drone is powerful enough to carry the clip with a little piece of paper or a small lego character. I used a ninjago piece and it flew ok and made the activity more dynamic. The parrot mambo is a breeze to flight. Indoors with good illumination it is very stable and responds quickly to the free flight app which you use to turn your phone into a drone controller (via bluetooth).

      1. I have purchased 6 of these. In my opinion they are the best drones in their class. More precise flight control than all the others. In addition there are several attachments available for these, an fpv camera, a cannon that fires little balls, a grabber. I prefer flying this over the tello drones that i have. Those are great drones, the mambo’s are just much more fun to fly, and they are very rugged.
