From a distance, the Mambo might look like any other toy drone, but it’s not!

It might also seem too expensive for a toy drone that doesn’t have a camera, but wait! The Mambo is an extremely cool smartphone controlled drone and you shouldn’t over look it, especially if you’re buying it for someone as a gift. Here’s why I like it.

If you look on the top, you’ll see a few little connectors. These connections allow you to mount either a ball shooter or a little grabbing arm. There’s one other thing you can do with this connector though, and It’s super cool if you’re buying this drone for your kids. It’s a Lego mount! There are a few Lego mounting points on the Mambo, so you can turn it into whatever kind of Lego ship you can think of! The only limitation is how many Legos it can carry.

But that’s not all! You aren’t just paying for an electronic Lego mount. The mambo is much easier to fly than most toy drones. Thanks to the powerful onboard processor, the bottom facing camera and an ultrasonic sensor, it can hover in place and hold its position without needing to make any corrections. Speaking of sensors, although the Mambo doesn’t have a front facing camera, you can still see the video feed from the bottom facing camera on your smartphone.

Did you know the Mambo is a fully programmable drone?

he Mambo is part of Parrot’s SDK so you can even program the Mambo to fly itself! There’s also pre-made learning environments in Apple’s Swift programming language and Tynker so you can teach kids how to program.

With everything you can do with the Mambo (from programming to Lego building) and all of the sensors it has onboard, you really can’t go wrong with this little thing. It’s not a camera drone like the DJI Spark, but as a toy drone, the Mambo is one of the best drones you can buy.
