Parrot Bebop Drone With Skycontroller

 

The small Parrot Bebop doesn't climb as high as competing drones, and its flight time is limited, but it's easy to fly and records stable video.

Stable 1080p video. Safe to fly indoors. Capable of performing aerial rolls and flips. Can be flown via dedicated remote or smart device. Raw and JPG image capture

Very limited flight time. Expensive. Skycontroller is huge. Not the most stable drone in the air. Indoor video footage is noisy

There are more and more consumer-friendly drones hitting the market, giving anyone with a credit card the ability to fly a camera through the air while recording HD footage. The Parrot Bebop ($899.99 with remote control) is a relatively small drone,...

Review: Parrot Bebop drone and Skycontroller

 

As the latest in Parrot's line of smartphone-operated drones, the Bebop boasts a number of improvements over the AR.Drone 2.0 including a better camera, longer range, and an optional joystick-based controller. We put the Bebop in the hands of several...

In addition to a sunshade, a protective hull for indoor flying, extra rotors and other peripherals and tools, the combination includes three batteries that are interchangeable between the Bebop or controller. Each battery is good for about 11 minutes...

Parrot Bebop Drone and Skycontroller Review: Looks Aren't Everything

 

You've graduated from your cheap beginner drone, and you want to try something new. Something that can shoot beautiful video from the sky—but doesn't cost $1,000+ like a camera-equipped DJI Phantom. You spot the $500 Parrot Bebop Drone, and pull the...

Parrot Bebop Drone Review: A Keen Eye In The Sky Without A Huge Price Tag

 

Parrot has a brand new drone on the market, featuring a 1080p video camera that captures motion at 30FPS, and that can take stills at 14MP. The camera has built-in stabilization, letting it avoid the kinds of shakes and jitters that can normally add up...

Skycontroller is a huge step-up for controls ; Video straight out of Bebop is pretty great

Mastering control for true camera work is challenging ; Skycontroller adds a lot to the overall price

Parrot’s Bebop is still very much niche device, but it’s a niche that’s broadening vs. previous models. This is less of a toy than the AR Drone 2.0, with more practical applications including aerial photography, property surveying, amateur filmmaking...

Review: Parrot's Bebop Drone is lightweight, aimed at casual hobbyists

 

The market for personal drones has grown exponentially over the last several years, led by consumer-oriented products from companies like Parrot. We got the chance to play with the firm's entry-level model, the Bebop Drone, designed for casual...

Camera quality ; Easy to get up and running quickly ; Easy to store, takes up very little room compared to larger, pricier models

Easily susceptible to wind when flying outdoors. Not for beginners ; Battery life slightly less than advertised ; Flight plans require an in-app purchase

Overall, we felt the drone was good enough for hobbyists, particularly those who have flown drones before and don't want to spend upwards of $1,000 on a high-powered but pricey model. The level of technology Parrot managed to cram into Bebop is...

Parrot Bebop review

 

Is Parrot's Bebop just the drone to sweep you into the world of high-altitude movie making?

Great fun once you’ve got used to the controls ; Attention-grabbing flips and rolls ; Capable of capturing some really fun footage

GPS isn’t as accurate as it should be ; Struggles a bit in windy weather ; Camera is only smartphone-quality ; Small storage and short battery life

A user-friendly RC toy that reveals hidden depths the more you fly and film with it

Parrot Bebop Drone review: A strong, little quadcopter in need of better performance

 

Made from foam, strong plastic and fiberglass, the Parrot Bebop is the safer, gentler quadcopter that you can pilot with the smartphone in your pocket. In an attempt to capture some of those enthusiasts, however, Parrot perhaps stretched a bit too far,...

The Parrot Bebop Drone is small and lightweight for its capabilities. It's relatively tough, but also user repairable if it breaks. It can be piloted with a smartphone or tablet as well as the optional Skycontroller

The large Skycontroller adds $400 if purchased with the Bebop or runs $500 when purchased separately. While its size and weight make it nice to travel with, it doesn't handle wind well, and its small batteries tap out in less than 11 minutes

The Parrot Bebop Drone gets points for being a compact, durable, easy-to-use quadcopter for capturing good video and photos. Battery life, performance and overall value make it tough to flat-out recommend, though.

No. The Bebop can be fun, but it's not worth the trouble. Not for $500, certainly, where you can only control it with your smartphone, and not for $900 when you'll soon be able to buy a fully loaded DJI Phantom 3 including camera and gimbal for just...

Test flight – Parrot BeBop Drone review

 

The idea of a drone you could fly around and have a bunch of fun with was a distant concept a few years ago, until Parrot released the AR.Drone and suddenly people with iPads and iPhones were flying these crazy looking things around parks and their...

The Parrot Bebop is a drone enthusiast's dream

 

If you want pro-level drone flying but do not want to spend thousands of dollars, the Parrot Bebop Drone and Skycontroller is for you.

Smart ; Powerful ; Fast and responsive ; Great camera ; Addictive

There's a learning curve ; Battery issues ; Limited fly time

If you want pro-level drone flying but do not want to spend thousands of dollars, Bebop and the Skycontroller is the drone package you’ve been looking for.
