Which app should I use to pilot the Parrot Airborne Night drone?
To pilot Parrot Airborne Night, please download the FreeFlight Mini app on the App store or on Google Play.
How do I connect my Parrot Airborne Night to my smartphone?
To use the Parrot Airborne Night you must have a smartphone or a tablet that supports Bluetooth® 4.0. Check your smartphone compatibility with the Parrot Airborne Night.
Should I always use the propellers guards?
The propellers guards are strongly recommended for indoor use. If you plan to fly your Minidrone outside, you should experience a better resistance to the wind without the guards. Remember to always select the guards option in your settings. With or without the guards, the motors cut-out automatically in case of collision.
How long does the battery last?
The battery lasts around 7 minutes with propellers guards. It lasts up to 9 minutes without those elements.
How do I rapid charge my battery?
If you charge your battery through your Minidrone, it will rapid charge. Just plug the Minidrone to a 2.1A USB charger using the micro USB cable included in the box.
