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.

Customer Reviews
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
