There are two categories in PILOTING SETTINGS:  Piloting and Position.

 

Piloting

 

Joypad

This is the default control mode, where you use the phone to fly the drone. This mode is more suitable for the novice pilot.

Ace

You can test your piloting skills by adjusting Parrot Mambo's altitude, climb speed, and the pitch angle to make your flying more challenging. However, it is a good idea in the beginning to dial these down until you become more familiar with the responsiveness of the drone. 

 

 

Normal

Normal relies on the control device orientation for movement: tilt your smartphone left to make the drone turn left, tilt your smartphone right to make the drone turn right, etc.

CAMERA

Select this option to take photos with your smartphone's camera. By default Parrot Mambo is set to take photos with its own camera (hence not highlighted).

 

Hull

Select this option if you plan on flying Parrot Mambo with propeller guards.

 

Cutout

This option stops the motors if the propellers hit an obstruction. This option is activated automatically (and cannot be turned off) when you fly with no hull protection. If you fly with hulls mounted, you can choose to whether activate or deactivate the Cutout option.

Flat trim

Tap  FLAT TRIM before take-off or after a crash to ensure flight stability. 

 

Max altitude

Limits how high the drone can fly.

 

Max inclination

Sets the pitch angle of the drone in forward flight; the greater the pitch angle, the faster the drone flies.

 

Max vertical speed

Limits how fast the drone can ascend and descend.

 

Max rotational speed

Limits how fast the drone can turn on its own axis.
