From the manufacturer
Parrot Bebop Drone produces the best flight performance ever seen in a leisure drone. The feather-weight ABS reinforced structure makes Parrot Bebop Drone robust and safe. In case of an emergency, the emergency function automatically stops the propellers and lands the drone. EPP hulls are included in the pack and ensure that indoor flights are safer.
Lightweight yet robust quadricopter
To ensure optimal stability without compromising the maneuverability, the Bebop Drone automatically analyzes data from numerous 3-axis sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer. One ultrasound sensor with an 8 meters reach, one pressure sensor and one vertical camera to measure speed.
Equipped with a 14 megapixel 'fisheye' camera, the Parrot Bebop Drone records videos and takes pictures within a 180° field of view with remarkable image quality. Full-digital image stabilization technology allows the Bebop Drone to take remarkably stable and clear aerial footage regardless of the drones movements, as well as providing a splash and dust proof lens.
Action cameras often show distorted horizontal lines. The Parrot Bebop Drone camera provides undistorted lines resulting in a perfect, uncurved horizon.
Freeflight 3: An ultra intuitive application
The user-friendly application was developed for usability allowing the pilot to be entirely focused on the pleasure of flying. From the home page of the app the pilot can access basic functionalities: Piloting, photos/videos, flight plan, Cloud 'Pilot Academy'. ..
'Freeflight 3' offers users complete control of their altitude and speed settings and piloting mode (accelerometer, virtual joystick...). It also includes fun features such as one-touch Flip!
The Parrot Bebop Drone photo and video stream is synchronized in real time with your smartphone: Instantly share your best photos on Facebook or Instagram and showcase your flights on Youtube with the touch of a finger.
Stabilized full HD 1080p video
Thanks to algorithms developed by Parrot engineers, the Bebop Drone benefits from an exclusive 3-axis image stabilization system that maintains a fixed angle of the view regardless of the inclination of the drone and its movements caused by wind turbulence.
180° vision controlled by the pilot
The pilot can control the angle of the camera directly in the piloting application with a simple movement of the thumb. The horizontal movement on a 180° angle is fully digital and does not affect your drone's movements.
Parrot Bebop Drone generates its own Wi-Fi hotspot
MIMO Wi-Fi connection: Parrot Bebop Drone embarks 2 dual-band Wi-Fi antennas that allows it to handle both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz MIMO frequencies. It generates its own Wi-Fi 802.11 network. Depending on the network interference, you can select the frequency of your choice.
Embedded GPS with Flight Map control
Thanks to the integrated GPS, control your Bebop drone directly on the map: plan your flights on your smartphone and let your drone do the rest!
Accurate GPS localization: around 2 meters with the GNSS chip and tracking with the Glonass satellite. Save over 350 flights and watch them in 3D with the Parrot Cloud thanks to the altitude and speed data collected.
Flight Plan will be available as an in-app Freeflight 3 purchase.
Keep track of all your flights and share your photos, videos and navigation data with other members of the Parrot Cloud. Share your data with the community while you are connected to YouTube and Facebook. Join the Parrot Cloud with over 150,000 registered pilots. Enjoy free backup of your flight data and 3D replay.
When 'Return Home' is selected the Bebop drone returns directly to its starting position when the altitude is greater than 10 meters. If the altitude is less or equal to 10 meters, it will rise and stabilize itself at 10 meters before returning to its take-off position in a straight line. Once it has reached its take-off position, it will stop and hover 2 meters above the ground.
The Parrot BeBop Drone Blue Quadcopter delivers the best performance: 8x times more powerful than Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 onboard computer, Bebop Drone navigation computer features a Parrot P7 dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU and 8 GB of Flash Memory. All are fixed on a magnesium shelf that acts as a radiator and electromagnetic shielding. Runs on Linux with SDK. Built with safety in mind Its feather-weight ABS reinforced structure (400g) makes Parrot Bebop Drone robust and safe. In the event of any collision, the propellers stop automatically. The emergency mode allows the drone to land immediately. Thanks to a GPS system, a Return Home function brings the Bebop drone easily back to its take-off point. Finally, EPP hulls included in the pack makes indoor flights safer.

Cons: The camera does not record well in low light. The drone comes with two batteries but it came to me with a damaged one when I called the tech support they said it was a common problem. Each battery provides a flight time of between 10 and 15 minutes only.
Second unit I got actually worked. And it's pretty nifty to fly. Image stabilization is incredibly well done, even though it's all in software. But you quickly find that its Achilles heel is the decision to use a phone/tablet as the controller. It's a nice idea in theory; it should save cost and that's one less piece of hardware that you have to carry with you. First off, with no feedback the touchscreen controls are truly awful. Maybe you can train youself to get decent with it, but F that. Fortunately that can be fixed (at least on Android, probably iOS too) but getting a cheap game controller. I got the iPega PG-9025 and it works great. I'm sure Parrot's own Sky Controller would work too, but it's way overpriced in my opinion. The second, more insidious consequence of not using a proper controller is the reliance on wifi. Even in the best of conditions wifi range is pretty short. And other times... I once had it lose connection when it was about 20 feet away from me. Awesome. And once the connection is lost, the software takes way too long to reconnect. That's assuming it can - if you have another connectable signal in the area (like, say, your home wifi) your phone will likely connect to that automatically when it loses the drone's signal, in which case your connection is never coming back unless you back out of the flight app and go to your devices wifi setting. Yay. Meanwhile your drone is holding still if you're lucky, but also quite possibly drifting away, as the station keeping seems so-so. And of course you can't even send an emergency land signal to it because that also relies on wifi.
Anyway, great fun when it's working, but decision to not use a proper dedicated controller is really boneheaded and really cripples this drone - the default controls are useless and I wouldn't trust flying it anywhere where a loss of connection could be detrimental.
