Parrot Airborne Night MiniDrone – SWAT : A Perfect Starter.

I would say, meh i suggest controls are fantastic and is available in windows phone i definitely like though you do get bored soon after a though put merchandise is excellent and i like it, very entertaining.

Actually, i liked this when i acquired it. It flew fantastic, and only had a person little bug that would cause it to go out of command every once in a while. That being said, right after about six months it no more time hovers flawlessly straight, and i am a little bit upset that it cannot seem to right alone.

Great product, easy to operate from your phone. I ended up buying some extra batteries and a charger that can charge up to 4 batteries at once – totally worth it, so play doesn’t have to stop after a few minutes.

Excellent gadget for beginners, now will pursue the larger version from parrot.

Of course you can hook a flypad to this small drone ($20) and it helps make it so considerably better to fly. It hovers flawlessly which tends to make for a good indoor observe drone for the children or initially time flight folks. I signify it just sits in one spot so very well it is wonderful for the cost. It takes first rate pictures way too (straight down on the other hand). Ahead of receiving the flypad i was a tiny ticked at parrot. I think all drones want a physical controller actually mainly because the applications in no way get the job done so well. They ought to include things like controllers with these drones but apart from that i can not complain as operation and hookup was a breeze. It really is very little fancy but undoubtedly a great learner or indoor coach. I might buy additional without a doubt.

Terrific benefit and wonderful mini drone, would advise.

This little drone can take a lot of abuse flying into walls and crashing, great for a child or adult to start learning indoors before flying outside.

Great drone my minor woman loves it.

Its a great small drone, i have only flown mine indoors, especially after looking at some other evaluations about it flying up up and absent. It really is smaller enough to fly indoors but just be a small careful all over just about anything effortlessly breakable as the controls look to be a small sluggish often. Charge and flight occasions (about nine mins) is normal for a drone of this dimensions. The camera is totally terrible, i’ve seen a lot of other drones the identical dimensions that offer higher resolution cameras and authentic time online video (in its place of just shots). I would suggest this only if you obtained a definitely excellent deal on it.

It broke unexpectedly 🙁 now i’m unfortunate. Runs off any clever cellphone/pill. I feel 1 of my propellers is bent however.

When i received this product ,i was so psyched cos i believed my lil daughter was gonna appreciate it but then it won’t connect to my samsung galaxy take note five all the time you place it on. Upgraded the application worked a when but disconnects. So occasionally it connects and a further time it would not so i kinda truly feel offering it a 3 star is honest thinking of the expertise i have had with it.

Great product, couldn’t be happiera+.

It was a gift for the holidays.

The drone is better than what i expected but only one real big problem there is a red line going across my ipad screen only when i’m fly.

My seven calendar year old nephew loves it.

I wouldn’t propose using it outside however, as i have study lots of reviews about it traveling into the clouds. My guess is flakey bluetooth connectivity. Indoors this thing is awesome, which is just what i acquired it for in any case. The digicam is a squander while. Smaller photo, minimal res, and due to the fact it really is generally for indoor use you’re usually capturing pics of your ground. I am jogging off a home windows area pro and a samsung s6 android. You can expect to want to select up more batteries and a multi charger if you want to have steady enjoyment. Battery requires about thirty minutes to cost as is, for a small significantly less than 10 minutes of flight time.

I obtained it at finest get for about 70 bucks. I 1st utilised it with the mobile phone application but i quickly realized that it was lacking in control. I ended up shopping for the parrot flypad distant regulate for 40 bucks, which has a mount for your mobile phone on it. I now have substantially much more command above this drone and its one hundred periods extra entertaining to fly. Id propose this as a starter drone as it was my first and im acquiring the hang of flying it. It can do flips and get a helluva beating. Im crashed it around 20 times and scarcely any hurt. The moment a prop flew off just after a crash and i shed it but thankfully they are low-priced online and i purchased a further set.

Parrot Airborne Night MiniDrone – SWAT (Black) : The first one i had had problems but customer support was on it fast and i received a new one. This night minidrone is awesome and a great starter model before i purchase a more expensive one. I’ve had hours of fun with this and recommend it to first time drone buyers or any one that wants one to play around with indoors.

Enjoy this item and definitely advocate.

This was the initial drone i ever acquired, and it flew properly out of the box. The software package handle carried out properly when i first got it. As i employed to produce software to command traveling machines of various kinds, i was pretty satisfied to see that it has particularly the variety of high-stage handle i was employed to composing. It does use a smartphone handle, with the normal simulation of two joysticks, but you command velocities, not accelerations: substantially less complicated. Owing to pilot more than-self confidence, it finished up in a tree. Following 9 months of snow, rain, warm sunshine, and cold night, it at last arrived down. The wind shook it plenty of that the left prop guard divided and it fell. A neighbor brought it back again: i charged up the battery, paired up the blue tooth, and it took off and hovered perfectly on the first consider. There is not a place of rust, no loss of flight top quality, and the details was all even now on the chip: superb engineering.

My advice, go through the guide, look at tutorials, do your investigate first. Numerous of the low rates evaluations are due to incorrect settings, weather associated takeovers, or lacking sections (i really feel for you-that sucks). If you have this drone, consider it slow and follow the instructions of people today on youtube so your bundle of exciting will not fly away. This matter flys terrific and i am getting a blast. I stay near the ocean and it’s normally windy. Continue to keep it small and you will not likely eliminate it. Wind is defiantly your enemy and it is really legitimate for all client drones. I after saw a couple thousand greenback drone be carried by the wind a very long way just before the expert operator received management. Stay reasonably lower and enjoyno dilemma connecting with iphone 6+.

1st, if you you should not have a single, pick up a flypad. You can obtain a refurbished 1 for around $25. Second, when you get this update your firmware. Prior to this update, you had to use the application with the flypad, which restricted your array and responsiveness, just offering the advantage of the truly feel of a authentic controller. With this hottest enhance you now get all the advantages of the flypad markedly enhanced variety and substantially much more responsive. The airborne drones become a total ‘nuther beast, and at the present pricing, they are an unbelievable deal. I individual a number of drones, and this has turn out to be my favorite. The vehicle takeoff and landing button (and type of an crisis brake) carry your drone up to about five toes, hanging stably midair arms-absolutely free, though the 8 other buttons can be programmed to do a selection of functions 90 degree turns, flips, light-weight adjustments, shots, and so forth.

You ca check out my youtube channel for flight vids.

Was flying around the house in no time. I have purchased other drones that were extremely difficult to use. This is packed with technology which makes it extremely easy to use.

Just as explained, quite delighted.

Muy bonito a mi hijo le gustó mucho.

I didn’t buy this through amazon, but i’m a proud, active ‘prime’ customer. I bougt this at a local best buy store for $59 via goft card. Simply stated, i love this drone. I’ve had it for three days, flying strickly in doors, and nothing but perfect, easy to fly, performance. I don’t know about the whole camera thing, but that wasn’t what i was after. This thing could fall apart tomorrow and i’d be fully satisfied. I’ve ran it into at least 5 walls with no damage, using the propeller guards.

    Yes you can hook a flypad to this little drone ($20) and it makes it so much better to fly. It hovers flawlessly which makes for a great indoor practice drone for the kids or first time flight people. I mean it just sits in one place so well it’s amazing for the price. It takes decent photos too (straight down however). Before getting the flypad i was a little ticked at parrot. I think all drones need a physical controller honestly because the apps never work so well. They ought to include controllers with these drones but aside from that i can’t complain as operation and hookup was a breeze. It’s nothing fancy but definitely a good learner or indoor trainer. I’d buy more without a doubt.

      1. When i got this item ,i was so excited cos i thought my lil daughter was gonna love it but then it won’t connect to my samsung galaxy note 5 all the time you put it on. Upgraded the app worked a while but disconnects. So sometimes it connects and another time it doesn’t so i kinda feel giving it a 3 star is fair considering the experience i have had with it.

    First, if you don’t have one, pick up a flypad. You can find a refurbished one for around $25. Second, when you get this update your firmware. Prior to this update, you had to use the app with the flypad, which limited your range and responsiveness, just giving the benefit of the feel of a real controller. With this latest upgrade you now get all the benefits of the flypad; markedly increased range and much more responsive. The airborne drones become a whole ‘nuther beast, and at the current pricing, they are an incredible bargain. I own a number of drones, and this has become my favorite. The auto takeoff and landing button (and kind of an emergency brake) bring your drone up to about 5 feet, hanging stably midair hands-free, while the eight other buttons can be programmed to do a number of functions; 90 degree turns, flips, light adjustments, photos, etc.

      1. Camera is sub par, but it’s fun to fly, especially with a parrot flypad. The lights on the front as well as the styling makes it look cool.

    This does not have near the feature set i would have expected from reading the product description on their website and for $100. I imagined i would have actual night vision with this drone, but that is not the case. This must be a “night” drone because it has visible leds you can enable. And you cannot record video with this drone; you can record video of the drone with device you are driving it with. Not very useful in my opinion. I am glad i did not pay the full price from the manufacturer’s website, because i would have been even more regretful that i had purchased this. Controls are sluggish and unresponsive for me at times using my brand new ipad pro to drive it. I will try again with my android device. But as it is i do not have the functionality i had believed i was purchasing.

    1. It broke unexpectedly 🙁 now i’m sad. Runs off any smart phone/tablet. I think one of my propellers is bent though.

    Bought this at at&t store for my daughter and it has been no gun because its down more than it up (all puns intended) most of the time it will take off a few inches from the ground then slam back down and when it does fly for more than 2 seconds it heats up to the point it almost burnt my daughters hand.

    1. I got it at best buy for about 70 bucks. I first used it with the phone app but i quickly realized that it was lacking in control. I ended up buying the parrot flypad remote control for 40 bucks, which has a mount for your phone on it. I now have significantly more control over this drone and its 100 times more fun to fly. Id recommend this as a starter drone as it was my first and im getting the hang of flying it. It can do flips and take a helluva beating. Im crashed it over 20 times and barely any damage. Once a prop flew off after a crash and i lost it but thankfully they are cheap online and i bought another set.

    1. 12 years old and got the app and started flying and it hovers solid, no drift, handles great. It’s very light so may be an issue outside but in the house it is perfect. It’s easy, take your thumbs off the phone and it stops and hovers.

  12. Rear motor won’t stop spinning, it cannot fly. Seems to be a major issue with all parrot mini devices. Honestly just stay away from parrot. They are really, really bad. Device never worked for charging, not sure if battery or drone. Meant to send back because it was defective and i got busy.

    The product didn’t do what they said it would do false advertisement.
      1. I’m really starting to wonder who writes these reviews. Nothing worked on this drone. Won’t connect to any device, i tried multiple. Following the instructions is no help at all. The freeflight3 app which you have to download for the drone to work doesn’t exist. I would no recommend purchasing this product. This makes the rest of their products suspect as well since it appears to be all app based.

    1. The wireless connection drops out around 50 feet (at most) away. It says it’s a “night” version, with some cool led lights on the front. So i thought it would be fun to try. It uses the vga camera on the bottom to judge height, so at night it can’t tell how high it is and goes a bit crazy. Combine that with the wireless dropping out and i had to climb a few fences at night to get it back. This is only good as an introduction quad copter for kids. My 8 year olds can fly it already after a couple tries. It might be worth it at these reduced prices ($60 or below).

    This was the first drone i ever got, and it flew perfectly out of the box. The software control performed perfectly when i first got it. As i used to write software to control flying machines of various kinds, i was very happy to see that it has exactly the kind of high-level control i was used to writing. It does use a smartphone control, with the usual simulation of two joysticks, but you control velocities, not accelerations: much easier. Due to pilot over-confidence, it ended up in a tree. After 9 months of snow, rain, hot sun, and cold night, it finally came down. The wind shook it enough that the left prop guard separated and it fell. A neighbor brought it back: i charged up the battery, paired up the blue tooth, and it took off and hovered perfectly on the first try. There is not a spot of rust, no loss of flight quality, and the data was all still on the chip: excellent engineering.

    Would not stay connected to ipad or iphone. Would not have ordered if my son had actually done his homework on this one.
