Connect to Parrot Mambo Minidrone over Bluetooth

Add a Parrot Mambo Minidrone to a Windows System

Before you begin, complete the instructions (Step 1 to Step 2) listed in the Connect a Parrot Minidrone to a Windows System Using CSR 4.0 Bluetooth Dongle and CSR Bluetooth Drivers.


If you are pairing the Parrot® Mambo with your Windows® computer for the first time, ensure that you are located in an area which does not have any other Bluetooth® devices. Otherwise, the CSR driver pairing might get stalled and the device will continue to search without stopping. To resolve this issue, perform the instructions (Step 1 to Step 4) listed in CSR device is stalled and does not show any new device.


During the entire process of connecting the minidrone to your computer, ensure that:

  1. The Parrot Mambo minidrone is switched on and the battery is charged.

  2. Both the LEDs on the minidrone are green and blinking.

To add a minidrone:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and select This PC/ My Computer.

  2. In the Devices and drives/ Other Devices section, double-click My Bluetooth Devices.

  3. In the top-left corner, click Add Device and select All from the menu.

    Your computer searches for all the Bluetooth-enabled devices in its range. Wait a few seconds for the Parrot Mambo minidrone to appear in the list under the Others category.

    The name of the minidrone appears as one of these:

    • Mambo_XXXXXX, where each X is a number.

    • the media access control (MAC) address of the minidrone (for example, a0:14:3d:3e:20:6f).

    You need to identify the Parrot Mambo minidrone that appears in the list with the correct icon, . If a device with this icon does not appear after a few seconds, wait for the scan to be completed, and then click Search Again to scan for the Bluetooth-enabled devices again.

    Another icon with the title Mambo_XXXXXX may appear in the scan result. DO NOT click on this icon.

    Click Search Again until the correct icon appears. Click Search Again multiple times for the correct icon to appear.

    If your minidrone is still not available in the list of devices, see Troubleshoot Common Scenarios.

  4. Select the Parrot Mambo minidrone (which appears with the correct icon), and click Next.

  5. The minidrone is now connected and ready for use. Click Finish.
