Parrot Mambo FPV: Cheap First-Person Thrills


On its own, the Parrot Mambo drone is a lot of fun to fly, but the accessories that Parrot packs with the Mambo FPV kit make this a very good deal for those seeking an inexpensive drone to play around with. If you get bored with the camera, you can...

Easy to fly ; Comfortable controller ; Good price for package

Occasionally glitchy connection

This package — which gives you a drone, a controller, a camera and FPV goggles for less than $180 — is a near-steal.

Parrot Mambo


Parrot Mambo: A minidrone that has a bag full of tricks including grabber and cannon accessories that mean the fun is only limited by your imagination.

Fun and easy to fly ; Reasonably quick charge time ; Easy to set up ; Fun accessories

Short flight time ; Mini pellets are really easy to lose ; Can only lift 4g using grabber ; Doesn't do well in even light wind

A fun and nimble first drone with accessories that make it stand apart from other minidrones.

Parrot Mambo FPV review


The little drone with the big selling point: FPV flight

FPV flight works well ; Simple to set up and fly ; Great price for a starter kit

Drifts around too much in the air ; Short battery life ; Poor camera quality

FPV flight on the cheap is wonderful, but the Mambo package is a little rough around the edges

Intuitive controls ; Great fun to fly ; Interchangeable parts

Short battery life ; Image quality could be better ; Video lag

The Parrot Mambo is an adorable little critter that we imagine is going to be finding itself on many a Christmas list this year. It’s similar in a lot of ways to its predecessor, but the addition of a camera and Parrot’s FPV headset turns this fun...

Parrot's Mambo drone packs a tiny peashooter (hands-on)


This palm-sized drone brings the joy of flight for would-be pilots on a budget.

Decent starter drone


I bought this little drone kit as a relatively cheap entry into the world of drones and drone racing. I chose this particular kit as it is probably the cheapest you can get that has the "FPV" camera and headset, which is widely used in drone racing and...

This is the first drone I've owned, I have bought it after reading all I could on good,bad and indifferent small drones. I have to say I am very happy with my purchase although the price is a bit on the hight side, but I guess you get what you pay for....

Mambo FPV Drone


Excellent little drone and easy to setup and fly with a reasonable battery time. You are able to purchase additional batteries and a multiple charger unit for around £40 for extended flight time between charges.
