The red BeBop Drone Quadcopter with Skycontroller Bundle from Parrot combines the BeBop Drone with integrated 14MP camera and the Skycontroller mobile device holder/tactile remote control.

The BeBop is a Wi-Fi-based, mobile device operated RC aircraft capable of capturing 1080p aerial video and taking 14 megapixel still photos. Avoiding the added weight and power consumption of a motorized gimbal, the camera - notably - features an electronic image stabilization system that relies on a 3-axis motion sensor and a 180° fisheye lens from which it crops an image.

The BeBop is controlled from an Android or iOS mobile device running the FreeFlight 3 App (see Parrot website for latest list of supported devices). In addition to letting you control the quadcopter, the app provides a real-time preview from the flight camera, and you can even record a low resolution feed directly on your device. For high res recording you can use the 8GB of built-in memory, or connect a USB storage device for increased capacity.

Two outdoor hulls are included, plus there is an "indoor hull" which is comprised of removable EPP prop guards. With the outdoor hull, the flight weight is reduced and the quadcopter is more aerodynamic. The BeBop Drone powers from a 1200mAh lithium-polymer (LiPo) battery, which is estimated to provide around 12 minutes of flying time. Two batteries and a charger are included in the box.

Note: Please address all technical issues directly to Parrot. Contact technical support by phone at 877-9Parrot (877-972-7768).

Skycontroller Included

The Skycontroller extends the BeBop Drone's Wi-Fi range up to 1.2 miles and features a hardware-based control pad. To maximize the first-person flying experience, the Skycontroller allows you can connect third-party FPV glasses, including the Oculus Rift, Zeiss Cinemizer, Epson Moverio, and Sony Personal Viewer

Note: Per FAA regulations, visual line-of-sight contact with the aircraft must be maintained at all times.

14 Megapixel "Fisheye" Camera with 3-Axis Stabilization

The built-in camera can record up to 1080p video as well as capture 14 megapixel photos. Notably, the camera uses a 3-axis electronic image stabilization system to avoid the added weight and power consumption of a mechanical gimbal. The system works by cropping a windowed portion of the total image yielded by the camera's 180° fisheye lens, thus counteracting the effects of wind turbulence for stabilized, horizontally level video. Plus, you can use the piloting app to electronically adjust the camera angle. There camera lens port is weather resistant

Safety Features

Constructed from impact-resistant ABS plastic. The propellers are designed to stop automatically on contact, and initiating the Emergency Mode causes the BeBop Drone to land immediately. Finally, there is an indoor "EPP" hull that incorporates prop guards for safer indoor flights

Return Home

Relying on the built-in GPS receiver, the Return Home feature causes autopilot to engage, flying the BeBop Drone back to the take-off point

Linux-Based Flight Control Computer

The Parrot P7 flight computer features a dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU, and 8GB of flash memory. The hardware is fixed on a magnesium shelf that acts as electromagnetic shielding and as a radiator. The computer runs the Linux OS and there is an SDK available for third-party software development

Multi-sensor Flight Stability System

To help ensure stability, without compromising on maneuverability, the BeBop Drone uses an aggregation of data from several sensors: a 3-axes accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ultrasound, and pressure sensor as well as a vertical camera to track the speed

App-Based Wi-Fi Control

Using standard MIMO Wi-Fi, the BeBop Drone is controlled by a smartphone or other mobile device and features a range of up to 984'. You simply need to create an "ad-hoc" connection between the controlling device and the aircraft. No router or other hardware is required, though and optional range extender (part of the Skycontroller system), available separately, allows the BeBop Drone to be operated from up to 1.2 miles away. Antennas are included for 2.4 and 5 GHz so you can choose the frequency that works best depending on other sources of interference

FreeFlight 3.0 App for iOS and Android

This free application, available for download from the Apple Apps Store and Android Play Store, allows you to control the quadcopter, operate the camera, and more. Suitable for both tablets and smartphones, the app provides a low-latency feed from the camera, and gives you a virtual joystick that simulates the ergonomics of a traditional RC transmitter

One-touch Sharing

With an Internet connection, you can even share snapshots or video of your flights directly to YouTube and other social media straight from the app

Embedded GPS with Flight Map Control

The BeBop Drone integrates a GNSS chipset that delivers GPS (GLONASS+GALILEO) data to the flight computer. GPS gives you the ability to plan your flights ahead of time on your mobile device by placing waypoints on your screen for the aircraft to follow automatically. GPS and other data can be recorded in-flight for later analysis or to create a 3D model of your flight using the separately available Pilot Academy app

Parrot PF725100 Reviews

Easy, stable and excellent camera

The camera quality of this drone is excellent. It's actually very smartly designed - apart from the fact that you can digitally pan around the image with a separate analog stick on the controller, it's very stable. As for the controller - I've tried piloting my Bebop with the app, and have to admit that the Skycontroller makes a huge difference.

far too many ways to use this than I can list. Every time I launch it I think of new ways to use it. Here's a few; Looking for a lost dog, lost child, following smoke trail to a wildfire, mapping your property, checking a hornet nest without getting stung, chasing stray dogs out of your yard, avoiding having to climb a ladder to look at anything. Negatives? Camera lens coating easily scratched, batteries could last a little longer, but overall no real complaints.

Great drone

Great drone. Getting started with it was rather easy. There is a small learning curve, especially if you are a newbie to drones, as I am. Though after watching some YouTube tutorials and after several flights I felt pretty comfortable with it. The flying range and stability of this drone is pretty impressive. It has good video recording capability, and the picture quality is excellent.

It's amazing. More durable and powerful than I thought it would be. Great performance. Great shots. The drone is relatively small and lightweight, so it's easy to carry around. On the other hand the Skycontroller is quite big. Though the flying experience with it is awesome. It offers much greater control precision and flying range compared to the smartphone app.

This is a great drone. Flying it with the Skycontroller (compared to controlling it via a smartphone or a tablet) is an amazing experience. The difference in flying range is quite big, and the drone responds flawlessly to the Skycontroller. I fly it mostly outdoors - on the beach or along the bushland, being able to see the world from a different perspective is just great. I've been recording videos of my flights and taking tons of photos. Camera quality is very good.

Even though this is a small sized drone, it's very powerful. I've had it for about a month, and it's amazing. With SkyController it's got excellent range, and it's very stable. It handles very well, even in moderate winds. I'm now looking for local quad enthusiasts, so we can race our quads together.

We would this product again--wish we could! magnificent cam!

The camera on this drone is magnificent! Clear, concise, color is great and the facial features can be made out even tho very high up! Seems quieter than most & with the batteries/controls it has, it works for longer than expected. Our district would love to have another just like this!

Great Item!

Easy to use, Does what it's advertised to do. Amazing piece of technology! A whole lot of fun to fly, Does require some care while learning to fly. Easy to use, easy to crash. Could be a little sturdier.
