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.

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.
Still really like the Parrot Bebop! It Flies just as good as when I first took it out of the box. And I'm still using the same batteries. One thing I learned is to calibrate your Bebop before every flight. (Yes every battery swap too) This way the gps and sensors are 100% in working order. I noticed when I didn't calibrate the drone it drifted a bit. Otherwise everything is perfect. fly high!
Common sense dictated to me that a drone costing several thousands of dollars that could potentially crash and burn on a maiden voyage would not make me (or my wife) happy. I come across the Parrot Bebop quadcopter drone recently. This photography tool is actually designed as a flying camera (installed is a 14 Megapixel f/2.4 1080p HD 3-axis stabilized camera) - for just a few hundred dollars. Algorithms developed by engineers provides a 3-axis image stabilization system that maintains a fixed angle of the view regardless of the inclination of the drone or movement caused by wind turbulence.
As a side note: I notice online several people that purchased the Bebop complaining that ‘this thing doesn’t work”. However – this drone is not a toy. The device analyzes data from numerous 3-axis sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, an ultrasound sensor with a 26 ½ foot reach, a pressure sensor and a vertical camera to measure speed. I would assume that most of these ‘complainers’ about the Bebop drone took the device out of the box – charged the battery - pushed the ‘takeoff’ button and expected the drone to fly itself. The way I approached this task is by viewing as much information as I could about the drone (especially pre-flight setup) – and then took baby steps to get my head wrapped around how to pilot the drone in flight. Perhaps rather than saying the Bebop drone is ‘crap’ these people were experiencing operator errors as opposed to equipment failures - you think?
I did learn how to get the Bebop off the ground and land safely after it arrived at our home on Friday night. On Saturday morning I went outdoors to fly the drone from my backyard (see link below). This was the piloting process for me. I was cautious with the first flight - Setting the maximum hight and distance the drone could travel from me at 30 meters (about 99 feet). On the second flight I set the maximum hight and distance distance at 40 meters (about 131 feet) - and on this final flight in the linked video, I set the maximum hight and distance at 50 meters (about 164 feet) I did experience a drop in the wifi signal at 164 feet distance and about 100 feet in the air for several seconds - but my drone just hovered until it reconnected and I was able to continue the fight and bring it back to where I launched (most excellent!).
I am impressed by how well this drone is designed, durable and has seamless functionality wirelessly with my iPad Air.
