Before you begin, complete the steps mentioned in the Prerequisites section.


During the entire process, ensure that:

  3. After the pairing is successful, right-click the minidrone again and select Connect to Network.

    After the connection is successful, the Not Connected status below the minidrone changes to Connected, and when you right-click the minidrone, the Disconnect from Network option appears. The minidrone is now paired with your computer.

    To verify the connection, you can also browse to System Preferences > Network, and verify that the Parrot Mambo minidrone is listed with the status as Connected.
