The official dedicated app for Parrot Minidrones*.

Download FreeFlight Mini free of charge in order to pilot Parrot Minidrones.

FreeFlight Mini’s easy-to-use interface makes piloting simple, even for beginner pilots. The app connects to your Minidrone via Bluetooth Low Energy or Wi-Fi.

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.

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!
From the home screen of the FreeFlight Mini app, you can easily access your settings for piloting, photos, and the "Parrot Cloud.” You can also customize flight parameters, including: altitude, speed and piloting mode (accelerometer, joypad). FreeFlight Mini app also includes fun features like one-touch flip:
- Experience loops, barrel rolls, and high speed 180-degree turns with Parrot Swing
- Front/back/side flips with Parrot Mambo, Airborne Minidrones, Rolling Spider and Hydrofoil*
*Only when it’s removed from the Hydrofoil structure and in flight mode
Parrot Minidrones are ultra-compact drones with impressive agility. They can fly both indoors and outdoors with great speed and stability.
All Parrot Minidrones can take dronies of you and your friends. You can also store images from your drone races taken by Parrot Swing in plane mode.
The new Parrot Flypad allows you to pilot your Minidrone with extra-precision and control.
There are two ways to connect the controller to the Minidrone:
- Automatically and directly, without the use of a smartphone. This mode offers an increased flight range of up to 200 feet
- Through your smartphone or tablet. This connection mode allows you to monitor your flight status on your device’s screen, and simultaneously pilot the Minidrone using the controller

You can customize your Flypad controls to suit your piloting preferences through the use of the FreeFlight Mini app. Turn on your Parrot Flypad and select it in the “controller” section of the app. From there, you can modify the button mapping and check battery life. When you start piloting, enjoy the optimized display of flight information (flight time and drone battery percentage) on your smartphone.
*To pilot Parrot Minidrone Jumping Night, Race, or Sumo, you need to download the FreeFlight Jumping app.

For Rolling spider.... app on iPhone X with latest iOS

App works as you’d expect. Doesn’t crash and controls are super easy letting you focus more on having fun flying around. My only issue is the camera function is NOT there on the app so I got miss sold this product with the advert stating you can take pictures using the camera :(

Rolling Spider Drone

Edit: the new update fixes the previous camera issues so now five stars! The camera function does not work, the button to take photos appears merged with another. I have tried on multiple iOS devices all on iOS 11 to no avail. Customer services recommended I return the product only to find the problem persists on the new drone - the issue must be with the software not the hardware. Please fix this bug.

Mambo FPV

This is really frustrating. I got the Mambo to fly FPV as a beginner. The app works fine on my iPad and on my wife’s Samsung S8 but not on my iPhone 8plus. When you can get a connection it only lasts for about 10 to 20 seconds and then disconnects after which you have to hard reset the drone to get the app to find it again and even then finding the camera is hit and miss. Such a pity as the drone flys great with the Flypad but I got it for the FPV functionality which has been a massive disappointment.
