4.0 out of 5 stars Astounding acting - top notch, 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Benedict Cumberbatch's acting is astounding - undoubtedly his best role to date. The film defies its relatively low budget of $14m. High quality direction , cinematography and special effects. Great supporting cast too including Keira Knightley giving a performance worthy of Helen Bonham Carter's acting ability. The only criticism I would give to the script (** slight spoiler warning** ) is there was no explanation as to where they obtained the working enigma machine it was completely overlooked- but apart from that great storytelling - top notch

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as they look, 12 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot fault the fact they look great and are a great party piece , unfortunately mine stopped working and it wasn't the batteries as the red light still comes on and i've tried others - but there lies a peculiarity for their premium price I would have anticipated an integral rechargeable battery and an iOS app for controlling the lights via bluetooth rather than a bulky AA battery case and a wire - none of which you can see in the picture!

Sound is OK , they look great - just missing one vital ingredient - staying in your ears - as long as you're happy walking along with one hand constantly holding the the earpiece in then go ahead and buy if not jog on !

3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to love it, 11 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parrot Bebop Drone (Yellow) (Toy)
If you're going to buy one make sure you buy it with the sky controller - without one its just a very expensive un-engaging toy imho though reading the other reviews here most are 5* and I guess if you compare it against the AR Drone 2 that’s a fair assessment but i’m looking at it against the DJI Phantom 2+. My experience has NOT been 5 star at all . The free flight 3 iOS app can be buggy but the latest update 1.33 (24/01/15) is a real improvement. -Finally there is a little bit of feedback information - e.g. height , speed , distance information but nothing like you get with the phantom. I've never tried a flip and have no intention or wish to do so. Without the sky controller it’s not so easy to manipulate the camera as you have to rely on the touch ability of your screen whilst flying or hovering. There are some positives about the bebop such as auto take off and landing button , but the negatives still outweigh the positives - realistically you're only going to get a 5-7 minute flight if you want to return the device to land safely with battery to spare. There are no LED lights like the phantom so this might appeal to some but i'd prefer it to be easy to spot hence choosing yellow. Blue in a blue sky is a potential nightmare! The GPS needs to be utilised better . There is no 'find my bebop’ option ( like find my phantom ) for the inevitable time it will fly off on its own accord as is far too common with drones both the phantom & bebop have this ability sadly. Its about time quadcopter drone manufacturers had an option for a sim card in their devices at their price the utilisation for telemetry and enhanced GPS location , mapping , finding etc would be enormously helpful .The GPS log of your flights in the piloting drone academy is good but not accurate enough. Far too often the propellers encroach into the videos which is the downside of the 170 degree lens . I cannot see the point in the photo mode as the fish eye pics just look weird - unfortunately the pics you take while videoing are equally as unusable as the resolution is too low - its better and easier to take snap shots from the video post production. If you want to access your videos on a mac you need to download a program from android.com called ’transfer’ - you can use the wifi to transfer onto your iPad but if yours is like my 16 GB one, good luck - no space ! Not much else to say except its to say that half of the price of a phantom 2 plus ( which includes a controller ) you get what you pay for , that is something that's not half as good as the phantom ! Not even 1/4 as good but don't take my word for it buy one - then you might agree with either me at 3* or everyone else at 5* . I really wish it was better but its not . I really wanted to love it . And the DJI Phantom is far from perfect itself. Walkera anyone !? Pad.A

3.0 out of 5 stars The SKY CONTROLLER is essential to make the most of the bebop, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're going to buy one make sure you buy it with the sky controller - without one its just a very expensive un-engaging toy. The free flight iOS app is too buggy - the sky controller feels and works really well with the parrot bebop drone - in some ways even better than its more expensive semi-professional DJI Phantom vision 2+ , but there is still a long way to go to make this perfect. There is very little feedback of information - no height , speed , distance information like you get with the phantom. I've never tried a flip and have no intention or wish to do so. But one major difference with the sky controller is the ability to manipulate the camera position during flight and when hovering. You cannot do that easily with the bebop alone & iPad free flight app. There are some positives about the bebop such as auto take off and landing button , but the negatives still outweigh the positives - realistically you're only going to get a 5-7 minute flight if you want to return the device to land safely with battery to spare. There are no LED lights like the phantom so this might appeal to some but i'd prefer it to easy to spot hence choosing yellow. Blue could be a nightmare! The GPS needs to be utilised better . There is no 'find my bebop' device for the inevitable time it will fly off on its own accord as is far too common with drones both the phantom & bebop have this ability sadly. The GPS log of your flights in the piloting drone academy is good but not accurate enough. A new firmware update has just been released today ( 24/01/15 ) hopefully that will address some of the teething issues. At £769 it is overpriced in the UK - the GBP/EUR is at a record high and that should make it cheaper not more expensive than France or Germany - you can of course save by ordering via amazon.fr or amazon.de - the blue one with sky controller was 829 EUR on amazon.de recently - equivalent to £619 GBP ! £150 saving now thats a bargain http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00OOR911E :) Too often the propellers encroach into the videos.

Pad.A ps UPDATE 18/3/15 - the pound is riding high and you can now buy a bebop & sky controller for as little as £639 plus postage from the marketplace or £703 via amazon.co.uk PRIME meaning that the combination pack now is better value - if you don't go for the sky controller its actually easier to control with an iphone or similar than an iPad but your range is severely restricted but great for flying vertically and say in a 20m max circumference - lots of help and tips at - facebook.com/groups/Bebopgroup & https://www.facebook.com/groups/BebopUK
