If you ever used a game controller then you wouldn’t have any problem using the Flypad controller. It features a dedicated take-off and land button, with the joystick allowing you to control height and directional movements. There are even pre-programmed patterns included.
The app is also easy to use, and works better if you have a smartphone with a bigger screen.
Flying the Parrot Swing was no hassle at all – outdoors and even indoors. I managed to crash it a couple of times, but the sturdy and lightweight structure meant that it was able to survive it.
There are two batteries included with the Parrot Swing which is needed since one flight usually lasts up to 5 minutes only. You can opt in to purchase more batteries, but of course that will cost more. Camera quality is strictly okay, but nothing that would make us go ‘whoa’.
The Parrot Swing is geared towards hobbyists that are not looking for something too professional like the DJI Mavic Pro. Still, it’s a nifty gadget that should bring lots of fun for the family.
