Re: Learning to Fly in Drift and Racing Modes...

...In the support answer I don't understand "offline" and "online" mode in relation to this theme. Dirk -- Parrot support finally responded to my query and agreed with my statement, "Do you mean that all settings you make with the FreeFlight Mini are saved in the Mambo drone, hence available when u...

Re: Tools Needed?

...the Mambo knowledge base is down together with the Parrot support forum. I have no access to this site... Too bad! Did Parrot itself sponsor the old site? They see to be going out of their way not to provide support for their products! Anyhow thanks for the info and the very useful instructions ...

...2) yes there are more PDFs. No library, but they were part of the "Mambo knowledge base" of the former support forum.
Dirk -- Do I understand that you still have access to this "Mambo knowledge base?" Any way to browse them or at least obtain a list of what's there? -- JClarkW

...MAMBO_CENTRAL_CROSS_EN.pdf Dirk -- Follow-up on this please: 1) At stage 2, step 2 ("Disconnect the motors' connectors"), I'm not sure how to proceed.

Tools Needed?

I crashed my Mambo and broke one motor holder. They have a replacement "central body" on Amazon (really cheap!) that come with 4 tiny screws but no driver nor instructions. Questions: 1) What driver is needed (appears to be a very small torx)? Are there other tools that I will need for this job? To ...

Re: Taking Photos with the Mambo FPV?

Ideas? Not really ... Questions: 1. If Flypad shows connection (constant green power button): do the soft-jogs on the smartphone disappear immediately? Can you pilot with Flypad? 2. If Flypad shows connection and then obviously looses it: is FlyPad still connected read from the infos on the startin...

Re: Taking Photos with the Mambo FPV?

To start with Mambo FPV I found this way: - Switch on Mambo and wait for both LEDs blinking slowly green. - Start FF Mini with Wifi and BT ON. - Wait until "FLY" becomes green in FF Mini. - Switch ON Flypad and wait until the small dot near "Flypad" in the FF Mini app becomes red and the power butt...

Re: Learning to Fly in Drift and Racing Modes...

Getting into Drift Mode? OK, I'm being stupid again. (It helps to read what FreeFlight Mini says on the screen!) I was finally cued in by reading the other forum (https://parrotpilots.com/threads/mambo-to-race-mode.1151/) to understand that the L2 button on the Flypad toggles between Normal Mode an...

Re: Learning to Fly in Drift and Racing Modes...

1) No, the Flat Trim button is not a panic button and should not be used while flying. With Flat Trim you can trim the internal accelerometer to adjust an exact horizontal position. So the Flat Trim button should be used once before each flight with Mambo located on a horizontal and flat ground. Ge...
