Where to buy Mambo FPV camera?

Hello,

I can't seem to find a Parrot FPV camera for the Mambo drone. I have the drone, just need the camera. Does anyone know where these are sold?

Thank you so much.

Hello,

as far as I can say they are (not yet) available. I'm also looking for one :)

Meanwhile the Mambo FPV camera seems to be no longer available in the Parrot shop.

Hmm. Maybe I'll have to go old school and get a tiny camera.

The camera never was sold without the mambo. I'm waiting for this since the release.

No, that's not true.
In the Parrot shop the FPV cam was available alone and as a FPV Pack (with goggles and power battery) over a longer period. I bought it last year from the Parrot shop. Actually both products are still listed in the shop, but without price and without a "buy" button since December.

I saw them listet in den Shop but you could not order it. Also I never saw one standalone on Ebay or Amazon.

Ok, I 've done a short search:

1. Mambo FPV Pack was available in the Parrot shop beginning in mid December 2017 and was in the shop for exactly one year.
2. Mambo FPV camera alone was offered in the Parrot shop since August or September 2018 until the end of 2018, lets say for nearly half a year. I bought it mid October,- at this time I know, that both products could be bought.

The availability of both products was not constant: there were some short periods during the whole offer period, in which one or both were not available.
Now at the product life cycle end of Mambo I assume that these spareparts will not be offered any more.

eBay actually has offers of complete Mambo FPV sets beginning with 85€.

What would be the advantage of only selling a successful, and very cool product, for a little over a year?

Talking about spareparts, not about the full product.
For Parrot?
1. Selling as much as possible Mambo FPVs before offering the FPV Pack.
2. Selling as much as possible FPV Packs before offering the camera alone.
😉

Sounds pricey for only a camera. But still I'm not able to find it, can you please link me or ping me as soon as you see one.

It's a complete Mambo FPV, second hand. I'd rather go with a new one and I only need the camera.

So they aren't getting rid of the product then?

Speaking of parts sales, I can't even order hulls or blades because everything is on backorder. :)

I think Mambo will still be produced and sold.
If you tried to buy in the US Parrot shop: it is discontinued since a few weeks.
The European shops are still online but with fewer products.
You could try to order from the UK shop, but I don't know whereto they send the articles.
Most spareparts (hulls, propellers, motors, body frame, tablet holder, batteries ...) are available also on Amazon.
