Built with Safety in mind
The feather-weight ABS reinforced structure (400g) of the Parrot Bebop Drone makes it both robust and safe. In the event of any collision, the propellers stop automatically, and the emergency mode allows the drone to land immediately.
Thanks to a GPS system, a Return Home function brings the Bebop drone back to its take-off point. This was tested on several occasion during our trial, with the drone landing within 2 meters of its takeoff location each time.
From an indoor flight perspective, four prop protectors included in the pack make this a bit safer… but my recommendation would be to stick to open areas.
The Parrot Bebop Drone delivers pretty good performance. It’s 8x times more powerful than Parrot AR.Drone 2.0’s onboard computer. The 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 also provides electromagnetic shielding.
Parrot Beebop Drone Generates its own WiFi 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.
Easy to Transport
All parts of Bebop Drone are removable for easy assembly and transport. Pilots can focus on flying and capturing incredible images and videos.
To ensure an optimal stability without compromising the maneuverability, the Bebop Drone analyses data from numerous sensors automatically: 3-axes accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, one ultrasound sensor with an 8 meters reach, one pressure sensor and a vertical camera to track the speed.
14 megapixels “Fisheye” camera
Equiped with a 14 megapixel “”fisheye”” camera, the Parrot Bebop Drone records videos and pictures in a 180° field with remarkable image quality. A full-digital image stabilization technology allows the Bebop Drone to take remarkably stable and clear aerial footage regardless of the drone movements. Splash and dust proof lens. Action cameras often show horizontal lines distortion.
In contrast, Parrot Bebop Drone camera delivers undistorted lines and as a result horizon is not curved anymore.
User-controlled 180° vision
Control the angle of the camera directly from the piloting application with a simple movement of the thumb. The shifting on the 180 angle is fully digital and independent from the drone movements.
Freeflight 3: An ultra intuitive application
The Parrot Bebop Drone comes with a free piloting application, Freeflight 3, for iOS and Android Smartphones and tablets. The user-friendly application has been developed to be very easy to use allowing the pilot to focus on the pleasure of flying. Once on the welcome screen, the pilot accesses the following functionalites: Piloting, photos/videos, Cloud “Pilot Academy”…
Complete user settings for altitude and speed, piloting mode (accelerometer, virtual joystick…). FreeFlight app also includes fun features such as one-touch Flip!
FreeFlight 3 is also the piloting app for Parrot MiniDrones.
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.
