Parrot’s Mambo mini-drone is aimed at children, but with its user-friendliness, out-the-box ready-to-fly attitude, design and flight capabilities, we’re sold.
Believe it or not, I’ve never personally owned a drone I fell in love with—until now. I’ve made it a point to familiarize myself with a wide array of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in order to most effectively write about them. I’ve played around with my friend’s DJI Mavic and was immediately hooked. My mother bought me an entry-level drone for Christmas last year, and that was used to terrorize her throughout our house all winter break. I’ve had my share of fun, piloting various drones around the skies, but I’ve never owned one myself that I couldn’t wait to use again.
Parrot’s Mambo drone is most definitely that—a drone that essentially comes out of the box ready to take off. Included in the $149 bundle is the drone—which sports four rotors—a grabber and a cannon with six shot capacity. The cannon is a mini-ball launcher and comes with 50 little pellets that remind of BB gun ammo. These are the little addendums to the UAV which may excite the younger crowd. Think LEGO fans rather than tech-geeks. It’s fun to shoot a pellet or two at your unsuspecting brother who’s trying to finish his work on the computer in the kitchen, but once that’s done, there really isn’t much there for adults. The grabber, too, works well and as advertised, but it’s not what we’re really here for. Continue reading about Parrot’s mini- drone.
