The official dedicated app for Parrot Minidrones*.

Download FreeFlight Mini free of charge in order to pilot Parrot Minidrones.

FreeFlight Mini’s easy-to-use interface makes piloting simple, even for beginner pilots. The app connects to your Minidrone via Bluetooth Low Energy or Wi-Fi.

The FreeFlight Mini App automatically detects which Parrot Minidrone you are using.
Simply turn on your drone, activate Bluetooth on your smartphone/tablet and open the application. Select your drone from the list that appears on the screen. Your drone will then connect and you are ready for take-off! If you’re using Mambo FPV, activate wifi on your iDevice and connect to your drone in the app.
List of drones compatible with this application: Parrot Mambo, Parrot Swing, Parrot Minidrones Airborne Night and Cargo, Hydrofoil*, and Rolling Spider.
*For Hydrofoil: place the Airborne Minidrone into the Hydrofoil structure, select Hydrofoil mode in settings, and start sailing across the water.

The application will instantly recognize the FPV camera that you have connected to your Parrot Mambo. You can now save and transmit HD video content in real time! To completely immerse yourself in the FPV experience, simply place your iDevice in your Parrot Cockpit Glasses 2. You’ll see exactly what your drone sees and discover new, thrilling sensations thanks to this innovative function.
Become a FPV racing pilot using the three new pilot modes. Start with the Easy mode, which will keep your drone’s position in the air even after the controls have been released. Then, move on to Drift mode. This mode deactivates the horizontal stabilization, thus allowing for sharps turns and more complex maneuvers. Last but not least, push your piloting skills to the limit and try the new Racing mode. You’ll have complete control of the drone with no stabilization assistance. The possibilities are endless!
From the home screen of the FreeFlight Mini app, you can easily access your settings for piloting, photos, and the "Parrot Cloud.” You can also customize flight parameters, including: altitude, speed and piloting mode (accelerometer, joypad). FreeFlight Mini app also includes fun features like one-touch flip:
- Experience loops, barrel rolls, and high speed 180-degree turns with Parrot Swing
- Front/back/side flips with Parrot Mambo, Airborne Minidrones, Rolling Spider and Hydrofoil*
*Only when it’s removed from the Hydrofoil structure and in flight mode
Parrot Minidrones are ultra-compact drones with impressive agility. They can fly both indoors and outdoors with great speed and stability.
All Parrot Minidrones can take dronies of you and your friends. You can also store images from your drone races taken by Parrot Swing in plane mode.
The new Parrot Flypad allows you to pilot your Minidrone with extra-precision and control.
There are two ways to connect the controller to the Minidrone:
- Automatically and directly, without the use of a smartphone. This mode offers an increased flight range of up to 200 feet
- Through your smartphone or tablet. This connection mode allows you to monitor your flight status on your device’s screen, and simultaneously pilot the Minidrone using the controller

You can customize your Flypad controls to suit your piloting preferences through the use of the FreeFlight Mini app. Turn on your Parrot Flypad and select it in the “controller” section of the app. From there, you can modify the button mapping and check battery life. When you start piloting, enjoy the optimized display of flight information (flight time and drone battery percentage) on your smartphone.
*To pilot Parrot Minidrone Jumping Night, Race, or Sumo, you need to download the FreeFlight Jumping app.

Great product BAD Service.


The drone app works great for the most part. I have been trying to communicate with the company about some of the details that need to worked out. This is not easy. I email them they respond with an email that says call please. I finally get the to communicate through email and the don't read them. They just send canned responses that guess what the email is about based on a few of the words in the email.
I need to be able to rotate the phone when it's mounted to the flypad. The camera orientation is to close to my hand and I want to use third party lens when recording.
This app could easily be a five star if they just had better service.

Great product and great app!


I love the drone and love the app. As an app developer I can only imagine how much work was put into making this product function as well as it does. My only complaint is that the app is near unusable on an iPhone X. Luckily updating your constraints should be pretty easy. Just select “Use Safe Areas” on your storyboard files in Xcode and do a quick run through to make sure everything is kosher. I don’t imagine you’d have to really adjust much after that.

Awesome app and drone


I don't use the phone as a controller, but it's really useful for stats and stuff and showing how much battery life is left so you know when to land. I have the Parrot Swing, and it's an amazing drone for the price. The only problem I have with the app is that when I try to transfer pictures from my the drone to my phone, the app crashes every time, so I'll take away a star for that. I guess it's not that big of a deal, but it would be nice if it worked.
