Common Scenarios during Bluetooth Setup

The following section lists some of the common scenarios that may be faced while connecting via the Bluetooth Low Energy dongle.

Step 1: After you successfully complete the Firmware update, the next screen prompts you to connect to Parrot Mambo Minidrone using the BLE dongle.

Step 2: Ensure that you are in a space that does not have any other Bluetooth devices. There might be issues in detecting the hardware when there are multiple Bluetooth Devices. Perform the steps listed in: Connect a Parrot Minidrone to a Windows System Using Bluetooth.

Step 3: Set Up a Bluetooth NAP Connection for Parrot Mambo using the steps listed in: Set Up a Bluetooth NAP Connection for Parrot Mambo.

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.

Troubleshoot Common Scenarios

The device keeps searching for Bluetooth devices with an option to Stop

If the dongle keeps searching for the hardware but does not finish the search, the CSR Bluetooth radio device will not connect correctly.

Perform these steps to resolve the issue.

  1. In the Device Manager, ‘Disable device’ and then ‘Enable device’ for the CSR Bluetooth Radio device and search for devices again.

  2. While searching again, ensure that you are in the area which does not have any other Bluetooth devices.

  3. If you observe the same issue (the ‘Search Again’ Button does not appear instead of ‘Stop’) thrice, rebooting the system will solve the problem.

  4. Once connected, follow steps listed in Connect a Parrot Minidrone to a Windows System Using Bluetooth to connect to the hardware.
