The latest Parrot Bebop Drone 2 retains many of the popular features of the classic Parrot product, including a high definition 14 megapixels fisheye camera, with amazing digital 3-axis video stabilisation to get the clearest shot, plus 8GB of internal storage for your precious photographs and video files. The brilliant new Parrot Bebop Drone 2 additionally incorporates a new 2700mAh battery, cleverly built into the streamlined body, that provides a continuous flight time of up to 25 minutes, more than doubling the previous duration.
The new Parrot Bebop 2 weighs a little more than it's predecessor at around 500 grams, but is still remarkably lightweight for a leisure Drone with a professional specification. Capable of improved performance, incorporating four powerful brushless motors fitted with slightly larger propellers to provide additional thrust, the Bebop 2 can climb vertically upwards at 13 mph and fly forward faster at up to 37 mph, allowing the Drone to cope with headwinds better.
Controlled using a Smartphone or Tablet with a Wi-Fi range of 300 metres, the Bebop Drone 2 can also be piloted using the exclusive new black Parrot Special Edition Skycontroller, if you prefer. Providing a more precise response by using its two conventional control sticks, the piloting device is fixed on a shelf that will accommodate the vast majority of Smartphones and Tablets available on the market. The Skycontroller can operate the Bebop 2 with or without a Tablet, and extends the Wi-Fi range up to 2 kilometres (1.2 miles), subject to local regulations.
Furthermore, for extreme sensations you can connect a virtual reality headset to your Skycontroller, provided it's HDMI compatible, to give you a 'First Person View' from the Drone’s camera, as seen from the cockpit. The pilot can still use the Skycontroller to adjust the position of the camera, independent from the Drones movements. The combination of numerous sensors provides impressive stability, plus great manoeuvrability when flown with the Skycontroller, a Smartphone or Tablet.
Designed with safety in mind, the Parrot Bebop Drone 2's lightweight reinforced structure makes it robust and safe. In case of accidental contact, all four propellers stop automatically, additionally an Emergency Mode enables you to land the drone immediately, whilst a GPS Return Home function brings the Drone back to its take off point easily. Always connected, the Parrot Bebop Drone 2 photo and video stream is synchronised in real time on your Smartphone or Tablet, so share your best shots instantly on your favourite social networks, like YouTube and Facebook.
Download a free piloting application FreeFlight 3 for controlling the Bebop Drone 2, that is suitable for both iOS and Android Smartphones and Tablets. The application has been specially developed to offer ease of use, and let the pilot focus on the pleasure of flying. On the Welcome Screen, the pilot can easily access the following functions: Piloting, Photos/Videos, Flight Plan and the Pilot Academy. Simply complete the user settings for Altitude, Speed, Piloting Mode, Accelerometer and Virtual Joystick. The FreeFlight app also includes fun features such as a One Touch Flip!
Plan your flights on your Smartphone or Tablet by touching waypoints on your screen, and let the Drone do the rest. In addition to increasing the stability in high altitude, the GPS facility allows autonomous flights, and the Drone automatically returns to the take off position. Replay your flights modelled in 3D on the Pilot Academy Map, together with the altitude and speed, plus all the recorded data. Choose your favourite Parrot Bebop Drone 2 from red or white colour schemes, together with the optional black Skycontroller.

First the good:
Much improved performance between generations - it climbs and flies much faster than the original Bebop (OBB) making it useful for more applications where it previously would have been too slow.
Battery life is up there with the best consumer drones at 20-25 mins which should be enough time and range for typical scenarios.
It's around 25% bigger than OBB but you get a lot of extra performance for a small impact on portability whilst it's still small compared to the DJI Phantoms, meaning you can put it in backpack whereas other drones need a 'look at me everyone' attache case.
The new BB2 colour scheme design looks seriously impressive and reminds me of the DJI Inspire 1. The OBB looks like a kid's toy.
Overall build quality is much higher. The H or X is more aerodynamic and much stronger so I think crash costs will be cheaper with this version.
New battery loading mechanism is light years ahead of the embarrassment of the OBB.
GPS performance, which was awful with the OBB is absolutely rock solid now and gets quicker and better aquisition so you're less likely to have drone incidents.
The camera can now face straight down instead of mostly down and slightly ahead with OBB.
Switches on and off faster than the original.
The rear flashing light is extremely useful as it is so easy to lose the drone or orientation even at fairly close distances.Read more ›
Good points -
-Faster and more agile than expected.
-Really easy for a novice to fly and incredibly stable.
-Responsive with little lag on the controls
-Quiet compared with other quadcopeters and helicopters I have flown. You can't even hear it once it's quite high.
-You can place limits on the distance and speed of the drone. I found this useful for my first couple of flights, so I wasn't concerned about it flying away.
-Return home function for when the drone is out of range
-Flight time of 25 minutes and a chick charge time of only 45 minutes.
The bad -
I can't really think of anything that bad to say about this drone, other than navigating through menus in the app can be a bit clunky. That said, the actual flight controls in the app (free flight mode) are top notch. You can download the app now and have a look, but the free flight mode will only appear once your drone is connected.
Flight plan (this is like an autopilot mode where you can set the path of the drone and other parameters such as altitude, speed, direction, and where to take pictures) is an additional £14.99, which I was initially annoyed at paying, but it turned out to be worth the money. It's also not essential or even something that all users might use, so I can see why they chose to sell it as an add-on.
Additional points -
-Only 1 battery included. Additional batteries are £59.99. I was going to order another battery, however the 20-25 minutes of flight time seem to be enough at the moment (especially in the cold weather).Read more ›
I have DJI S900 with A2 as well as few phantoms to film and take photos ( only as hobby )and other smaller quads for fun where camera quality as important as quad itself as most people wanna see thing from birds eye .. but Parrot had different ideas and decided that as long as you can tell the difference from grass and sky then what else do you want !?
My advice, buy phantom 3 standart that has good quality camera with mechanical gimbal and gives you 300m range via wifi and you get remote control for same money .Read more ›
