"Compatible with Swing, Mambo, Airborne Cargo, Airborne Night, and the Hydrofoil hybrid "


I see some of the Q&A on Amazon [amazon.com] saying this works with other mini-drones like the rolling spider (which I have). Can anyone confirm?

TIA & thanks for sharing OP

Per my comment from a similar deal a few months ago..https://slickdeals.net/f/11309619-parrot-swing-with-flypad-certified-refurbished-29-99-parrot-jumping-night-33-74-parrot-jumping-race-37-49-more-fs?src=SiteSearchV2Algo1 (this is copied from the wiki).

"Just a heads up, I have the jumping sumo,and the app controls are terrible. I also got the swing with the flypad, and can verify the flypad does NOT work with the jumping sumo , however, I bought this MOGA controller, and it paired natively with both my swing AND the SUMO! The sumo app needs to be connected and it goes into this strang mode. Also the MOGA has two pairing settings, a normal and an HID. The HID setting is what works with the jumping drone. Once I connected the MOGA in HID mode, the app recognized it and it became a lot more fun to use! I hope this helps someone as i searched high and low for a non-app based solution for the jumping drone!!

Considering the bebop, using this controller and a Xiaomi Wi-Fi extender you can get full range 1.5k. Way cheaper than a skycontroller 1 or 2

Pretty sure it does work with the Rolling Spider: https://community.parrot.com/t5/R...a-p/152614

The drone portion of the Rolling Spider seems identical to the one for the Oran hydrofoil, which I have and does work with the Flypad. For the life of me, though, I couldn't get the firmware on the hydrofoil to update via app, which prevented me from using the drone at all. I had to manually download and drag the firmware file onto the drone via USB cable on my desktop before I could pair it with the Flypad.

Will let you know firsthand if the Flypad works once I receive my Rolling Spider from techrabbit, it's been taking a while to deliver.

Just got my Rolling Spider. Confirmed working with Flypad.

The order of steps in the community link didn't work for me, though. Had to do it in reverse order: Open FreeFlight Mini app, leave Flypad off, turn on drone, select RS_xxxxxxx drone in app, then turn on Flypad (then it automatically paired without selection weirdly).

I struggled for a few minutes to get the drone to recognize at all when I paired the Flypad first and then turned on the drone. Doing it in reverse order worked without a hitch.

I'm convinced the Orak hydrofoil and Rolling Spider drone are exactly the same, just with different firmwares.
