It took me a few days to learn how to fly it with an iPhone/iPad because the box came with NO INSTRUCTIONS.
My first flight, which was indoors, consisted of it hovering for a few seconds and then it blasted straight up in the air so fast that when it hit the ceiling I thought it would come down in 20 pieces, but no only 2 ( the wireless panel on the back leg flew off). This happened to me two times, so I went outside.
Flying outside ended in several crashes because i could not steer it at all so it just floated into trees. Just when I conceded to pack it up and send it back, I got an email from the Parrot Drone Acadamy (after I registered it) and the email had 3 short tutorials on Youtube - THESE ARE CRITICAL to using the drone. I wish my box had a note in it that said watch the videos first!
Learning to Fly
After watching the pilot video I tried one more time to fly it and... Voila I had my first awesome successful flight after try #7. I now am thinking "ok, this thing does work, it's pretty cool". After spending a day with some decent flights under my belt I got more daring and tried to see how high I can go-- BIG MISTAKE!
Just when you think you got it
The Bebop loses wifi connection REGULARLY!!! Instead of hovering like it should, it starts to drift, and drift, faster and faster as it just FLIES AWAY!!! So now I'm running after it across the street and through the corn fields. As I'm running, I'm trying to go back into my wireless settings on my phone and reconnect to it - then go back in the FreeFlight app and try to gain control as it says "impossible to connect" over and over, all while running as fast as I can and looking up at the sky every now and then to see where its going... phew I'm tired. Maybe the Bebop is just a diet-plan in disguise?? Iv'e been running for about 300ft and I see it heading for large trees. I think this is it, the final flight. Just then, it stops and hovers about 30ft up and my phone connects! I quickly tap "Landing" and it comes down safely.
This is just the first five days. Sigh.
- The Bebop has a good design and the App to control it is very cool - if it worked 100% it would be really cool.
- The onboard camera is just ok. The claim of 14mp and HD video is a serious stretch. My Nikon is 12mp and looks WAY better than this 14mp camera - hell my iPhone is better quality and its lower resolution.
- If you use a phone/pad to control it DO not let it go very far from you and it will work as it should.
- Stay low most of the time.
- YOU CAN NOT TRUST IT so stay away from trees and water.
- The battery connector is a joke, its a floppy wire that has a little string on it and you have to try and marry the two up, it's the strangest thing I have ever seen.
- It is definitely strong, after many crashes it still works.
you know it has a big flaw and that this drone has a bug frame ware that it loses its signal and gain altitude and fly away?
yes this so far the honest thing and what real consumer and reviewer reporting, I lost mine 2 weeks ago, I took it outside for the first time and it gained altitude and flew away until I could not see it again and no matter what I did on my iPhone to bring it down it would not respond and I lost it.
Parrot company please be honest and let me know why?
I got Phantom 2 V3.0 its $1,299 vs $899 for the parrot bebop with sky controller the $400 difference worth it for the following reasons:
Phantom 2 battery last 25 minutes it beep and give you warring when the battery is 10% (actually you can set it up to the percentage you want I use 15% critical and warning 20% high warning I also get a warning when its below 50%) there is always battery level on your phone or tablet for the quadcopter to know.
the Bebop batter last 7-10 minute, you get a warning but I felt it does not give you much time before it drop down but I have not explore more to it (I hope they have that feature to set up alarm) from my experience on other RC they have NOT EXISTS
Phantom 2 has fail-safe return home feature and it really work once you set it up, and its also kick in automatic if as well if it goes beyond the range of the transmitter, or you lose site of it.
Bebop, once it lose transmission it stop responding, however in some cases it just hover on its place, for me it gained altitude and never responded, happened with me on the Bebop, and rolling spider, and the AR parrot (yes if anyone finds them the name I use on them is Itsybetsy spider, Peacock and Cowboy Bebop)
Range which is very important, and there is a youtube video on that, they say it can go up to 300m and 2km with the sky controller, that utterly bulls*** the bebop I had didn't go beyond 71m and the video quality is very choppy, and I live in Texas and its all flat around me so there is no reason to lose signal.
so the $400 extra you pay for the phantom worth it, even if it was for the battery life time and the extra one it come with it.
