The first Minidrone aeroplane with vertical take-off and landing
 
Discover the Parrot SWING, designed to teach piloting and enable everyone to feel like a pro in no time.
 
With the Parrot SWING, easily pilot a plane, or a manoeuvrable quadcopter (drone).
 
Minidrone at its best!
 
Parrot SWING can be flown indoors and outdoors, alone or with friends, and is easily controlled with Parrot Flypad controller, a smartphone or a tablet.
 
Parrot SWING, with high-tech sensors and software, is one of the most stable quadcopters and plane on the market.
 
A unique plane with unique shape
 
The X-shape is the result of an aeronautical conception allowing Parrot SWING to be the only drone to fly horizontally or vertically.
 
With a simple glide, transform your drone into a plane and do aerobatics never seen on the market (Looping, barrel roll…) at high-speed.
 
Looking for a rest? Easy get into quad mode to stabilise your drone.

Remarkable flight technology that works so well. Very clever.,
This mini-drone is a technical tour-de-force that brings more to the party than one could reasonably expect even at the recommended price. At the Morgan price it is a true bargain, that's why we just bought another three of them! Push-button take-off and landing - just push the button and it pops up and waits for you to do something, maintaining its position and altitude in light breezes. so you can just push the button and walk away. No user input required. That is very clever indeed, at this price. If the battery runs low, it just lands itself. Both helicopter and aeroplane modes, with steps in-between. Helicopter-like things are very handy, quad-copters are highly agile and great fun, but like all helos they burn energy furiously. Payload for payload helos burn up to 4x the energy of an aeroplane. This does both. Planes are almost always faster than equivalent helos too. With both modes available, this has a similarly broad performance envelope to a Harrier or Osprey V22, without all the stability concerns. It really works. It takes off in helo/quad mode, and just sits there. You can then fly around in quad mode, or change up to 'plane mode in steps - then it becomes faster! ...and burns less energy too. Well, the battery seems to last a lot longer in 'plane mode, as one would expect. Radio range is not large - so take care not to lose it. In helo mode it just stops and lands, but it might keep going in the 'plane mode because it flies level automatically. There are bells and whistles too - Smartphone integration is supported with an 'App' that adds configurability and other features. You'll need more batteries. This is normal with quads and small electric aircraft, fortunately a set of 3 batteries and a charger can be found on line for around twenty quid. Battery life is around 7 minutes in quad mode, have seen over 10 when (mostly) in 'plane mode, but not yet done a proper evaluation. Been flying small 'things' since the 1940s, and used to work as a rotorcraft design engineer back in the day. Talk to me about retreating blade stall inhibition if you like. I say that this Swing is a properly clever aircraft, and such fun too. How good is it? My wife liked it! I love it . . .

amazing fun machine,
great fun and easy to fly - but only in very light winds. information on controls almost non-existent I had to download the app and go through the default settings to find what the buttons actually did. on/off switch on the drone is really had to find and its best to update using a pc. don't get confused by the flashing green lights at the front when you are charging. the actual LED that denotes charging is at the back near the charge port
