Are you installing the cam with Mambo and FF mini up and running?
Better mount the cam with Mambo switched off.
When Mambo is then switched on, the cam LED should blink a short period, then light up constant green.
Only if this works and Mambo's eyes are both blinking green, go into FF mini and try to connect to Mambo's FPV cam Wifi.

No.
The FPV cam should show the green LED when mounted on Mambo. A microSD card should be put into the cam.
The only thing I would do is checking whether there is a contact problem with the 4 contacts connecting Mambo and cam.
But no other ideas ...

When I had a problem setting up my Mambo, I got this instructions from Parrot support and it worked for me:

"This is Xxxxxxx from Parrot support team and I am happy to be helping with your case # xxxxxxxxx, concerning your Parrot Mambo FPV.

  • Please follow the below steps to help you with the issue.
  1. Delete the Free flight application.
  2. Go to settings and search for network settings the search bar will be located on the top of settings just type down network settings.
  3. Choose reset network settings, "Make sure that you are only resitting the network settings nothing else as you don't want to lost all the data on your phone"
  4. Restart your phone.
  5. Download the application again.
  6. Reset the drone by pressing on the On and Off button for 15s and then let go.
  7. Connect the Drone to your phone Via WI-FI.
  8. Celebrate the Drone.
After following these steps the issue should be resolved."

After step 6 and prior step 7, i paired Mambo with my phone (LGV20) via Bluetooth. I never had to pair the controller with my phone. Camera has to be firmly attached to the Mambo.
