Get a Parrot Swing with Flypad controller for $33

It's a drone, but push a button and it's an airplane! This top-rated toy originally sold for $140.


Look! Up in the sky! It's a drone... it's a plane... it's the super Parrot Swing!


Parrot makes some of the most interesting drones on the market. Case in point: the Swing, which looks like an X-wing and can switch between quadcopter and airplane modes midflight.

It originally sold for $140, but for a limited time, TechRabbit has the refurbished Parrot Swing with Flypad Controller for $32.99 shipped. That's after applying promo code CNETFLY7 at checkout. Cheapskate exclusive! 

Read CNET's hands-on review of the Parrot Swing if you want to learn more about it, then check out the 4.7-star-average customer reviews at Amazon (where it sells for $69 new). 

Battery life will limit you to around 8 minutes of flying time (not uncommon for small drones), so consider something like this 3-pack of additional batteries -- with charger! -- for $26.

I haven't flown the Swing, but it looks like a fantastic deal -- especially considering that TechRabbit covers it with a one-year warranty.
