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.

steadi drones inspire pro/raw yuneec 4k phantom 3 proffesional 3dr solo etc now obviously for its money value
it does hold its own i am really enjoying it well done parrot
I just wanted a no headache out of the bag solution. Not only did this tick the box on agility and fun flight, but with the HD camera I was able live stream, record footage and also take pictures. I did look at a variety of drones available on the market but I liked how the Parrot Bebop 2 shared the design of a compact racing drone while still offering the features of the larger intimidating photography drones, In my opinion I felt if for any reason I did crash (Done many times with my RC gear), there was a lot less to damage as the camera is enclosed and the landing feet are small sturdy with rubber protections.
With the unit being so small and compact it seems people around me are also less intimidated by the unit too. Don't let the small size concern you too much as this product claims stability in up to 30mph wind speeds. I cant give a accurate speed but I have certainly tried it in some very windy conditions and this little beast holds it ground well.
I was going to purchase the BB2 on its own but then realized that there was a Parrot Sky Controller Available offering more precise piloting controls, extended range up to 2km and a place to dock your phone/tablet to view what is being recorded so it made sense to purchase the bundle. I then later found out i can plug a monitor or FPV glasses into the HDMI port and live stream the footage BONUS!
In a nutshell the Parrot Bebop 2 and Skycontroller experience depends on the user themselves, you can keep it simple, pilot,play and record. Or you have the option to further explore the connections, features, accompanying application pushing the boundaries of the product and software, either way it is great investment.
I was lucky to get this for £580 and during the Flying season offer that parrot had i also got £100 cash back which I've received already, so well worth the £480 i paid, Im very pleased with it and yes i can recommend this to anyone thats starting off new to this and also to the more experienced user.
First thing first, potential buyers, attention : you may receive your Bebop 2.0 with propellers already mounted on as I had. If so, check if the propellers actually are on their matching rotors. Wasn't the case for mine : my drone flipped down to the ground on first take-off attempt. Verify that the propellers with a hole in the middle are on the rotors with a pin that grows a bit over (which are front-right and back-left arms). Propellers without a hole go where the pin doesn't grow over. Use the mounting tool to switch/replace propellers if needed, using one of the 4 extra propellers provided.
Let's do the Pros and Cons
- 8 gig of internal memory is ok, but a micro-sd card reader would have been an awesome for no much effort. Even my < 80 € worth toy has it, allowing to go for an extra 32 or 64gb memory for a couple of tenners
- no lights (but the back light one). My previous toy also have 4 lights, the Bobop 2.0 doesn't, even though you are not supposed to fly by night. By the way : it can't fly by night. Being in the dark will disorient the bottom sensor and BeBop2 will drift to a random direction until you land it.
- Cam head is not protected at all. Glass will take scratches for 100% sure in case of an unfortunate front crash. However, this is easily fixable : go downtown to some retailer who does 3D-printing services : I got for 5 € a soft-material front cap for my bebop 2.0 nose that shields the front glass from contact and it doesn't appear on the camera view angle :) Must have.
Would have suggested :
- have a manual take-off mode.Read more ›
