Parrot Minidrone Mambo with Cannon and Grabber Accessories (Certified Refurbished) – This mini-drone is heavier than the Airborne Series making it easier to fly outside and control. It comes with a lego attachment frame on its body which enables a grabber and cannon. This drone is also recommended over the other Parrot Mini-Drones because it now has a third option. You can attach an FPV (First Person View) camera and turn it into a racing drone. Similar to those in the DRL (Drone Racing League)
A step-by-step guide to coding the Parrot Mini Drones using the FREE Tynker App on Android and iOS tablets. A great tool for STEM learning both in and out of the classroom. Reviewed by a 4th and 5th-grade teacher. For beginners to intermediate level. View the back cover: What I need for this book? – This book is free online in wiki format. For kids, a hard copy recommended so they don’t have to switch back and forth between the Tynker app and the tutorials. If you decide to go with the wiki-edition please leave a comment on the Amazon Book Page.
Like most books, new challenges and tutorials will be added over time. The online edition will contain the most up to date content.
Add-ons and other options
If you are looking to save a bit more money. Then you can get the Airborne series which includes the Cargo (Mars and Travis), Night (Maclane, Blaze, SWAT), or Rolling Spider. I recommend either the Cargo or Night Series. The Night series has the attachment for the Wheels like the Rolling Spider and comes with lights.
Cargo and Night Price: $34.99
You may have to look around for the best deal. Read the reviews.
You’re not exactly saving at first glance but the swing by itself costs around $45 and the Bluetooth Controller is $35. The cool thing about this drone is it is both a quad-copter and plane. It has 4 flight modes. Copter, 1st position, 2nd position, 3rd Full Plane Mode. In full plane mode, it can speed up to 18 MPH
The Flypad comes with the Swing, but if you get another mini-drone it does not. This controller is excellent if you just want to fly around. Also for those getting the Mambo with the FPV option, you will want to have this controller for better touch response. It has a button for taking off and landing. The additional buttons affect each drone differently based on what the drone offers. So the cargo drone might flip in different directions while the night drone will turn on its lights and the Swing will adjust its pitch.
