With vertical take-off and forward flight, the Parrot Swing Mini Drone combines quadcopter and drone flight ability into 1 device. There’s durability, multiple control modes and fast charging, alongside an intuitive smartphone app and sharp camera.
Here are 4 key features of the Parrot Swing Mini Drone:
1. Multiple control options: The drone looks “like it flew straight out of a Star Wars movie,” reaching speeds close to 20 mph, The Verge notes. The Swing Mini can take off and land vertically and switch to a UAV mode during flight, offering what The Verge finds to be “faster, more maneuverable horizontal flight.” The Swing Mini can also be flown using a smartphone as a controller through the FreeFlight Mini app.
The Swing Mini also bundles a Flypad controller that attaches to a smartphone to offer more control modes. Ubergizmo.com prefers this user experience, which alsobrings added range and maneuverability.
