Mambo flips unstable

Hello,

My son's Mambo is really unstable and will crash after pressing the "flip" buttons. For some reason it cannot recover from a flip. It seems to fly well besides the flips.

Any ideas?

Ideas:
- newest firmware (3.0.26)?
- props: damaged, bent, ...?
- battery: full flight time possible after charging 100%?
- drone starts flip correct (side, front, back) and then crashes or no flip beginning at all?
- flat trim made?
- tried to reset?

Thanks for the ideas.

It has the newest firmware.
The blades do have some small dings and probably aren't as straight as stock.
Yes it completes a fill flight time after charging 100%
The drone flips in the correct direction (and goes the in the direction as commanded), but it's unable to recover afterwards and falls to the ground like a feather. It's trying to right itself, but it can't manage.
How do you do a flat trim?
I tried resetting everything to the factory settings with no luck.

Thank you.

Welp, I figured out the problem. I had the, "Hull," setting to Off. I didn't realize that the bumpers are called hulls.

So with the Hull setting off, the drone couldn't properly calculate flip dynamics. :) All good now!

my daughters mambo flies for 10 seconds then it flips and hits the ground. I'm trying to figure out how to fix this. I wonder if they have the drivers for Mac. cause I have Mac and pc laptops, but my pc laptop needs a batter and is unstable, I'm using my MacBook.

thanks.

Drivers, Mac, PC doesn't have anything to do with your problem.

Flying 10s, flip, hit the ground:
How does this happen exactly?
You are able to connect, fly 10s normally? That means you can stear your drone left, right, up, down for 10s?
What means "flip"? Upside down? Or spinning?

Mambo FPV or Mission?
Prop guards mounted?
Battery fresh?
What firmware version?
Which FF mini version?
