This kit from Parrot pairs a white BeBop Drone 2 with their FPV Bundle. The FPV Bundle features the CockpitGlasses headset, which splits an HD image into two side-by-side views to give you a truly immersive flying experience. For the display, the headset accommodates a wide range smartphones (smartphone available separately) and provides a 90° field of view. To control the BeBop, whether using the headset or not, the FPV Bundle features the SkyController 2. An alternative to app-based control, the SkyController 2 offers the tactile feel of a traditional RC transmitter. Additionally, it doubles as a range extender, boosting the Wi-Fi signal up to 1.2 miles. A USB port allows you to connect a mobile device and view a live video feed.
Parrot BeBop 2 Drone with 14 Megapixel Flight Camera (White)
The white BeBop Drone 2 with 14 Megapixel Flight Camera from Parrot is a Wi-Fi-based, mobile device-operated RC quadcopter capable of capturing 1080p aerial video and taking 4096 x 3072 resolution still photos. Avoiding the added weight and power consumption of a motorized gimbal, the camera features an electronic image stabilization system that relies on a 3-axis motion sensor and a 180° fisheye lens from which it crops a Full HD image. Updates from the original BeBop include a lower camera angle for direct shots at the ground and a larger battery for up to 25 minutes flying time.
Rather than requiring a special transmitter, the BeBop Drone 2 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.

Parrot FPV Pack
Take to the skies inside a virtual cockpit with the Parrot FPV Pack. Taking advantage of the digital connection offered by Parrot's compatible drones, streaming video from the camera to the Cockpitglasses FPV headset in 720p HD resolution.
The Cockpitglasses FPV headset houses your smartphone and uses its screen to display the video feed. Flight data, such as altitude, air speed, and battery life, is also displayed in addition to incoming video. Layered foam lines the interior for comfortable flying sessions, even with glasses. Phones with screens ranging from 4.7 to 5.2" are supported by the Cockpitglasses's smartphone tray.
If your phone is inside the FPV headset, you might ask: "How do you control the drone?" Also included with the bundle is Parrot's Skycontroller 2. Modeled after video game controllers, the Skycontroller 2 is intuitive to operate with its precise joysticks, amplified Wi-Fi connectivity for extended range, and smartphone/tablet holder.
