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.
The only bas side is that one of the batteries did not work (the package contain 2 batteries).
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.
