💡 In a few words.

The Parrot Bebop 2 is a smartphone controlled drone with a high resolution camera allowing for video recording at 1080p resolution. The Bebop 2 has a robust design, and a larger capacity battery over its predecessor. The fuselage is almost entirely plastic, except for some deformable material surrounding the camera. Each rotor has 3 flexible blades and can be removed.

This drone is not a single solid unit, but two parts that are connected by a set of shock absorbing rubber balls. The camera housing and electronics is affixed to these balls, allowing a reduction of image vibration. The lower mass of the drone means it is affected by strong winds. The Bebop 2 is highly responsive when flying and is capable of some very fast turns.

You control this drone by using your smartphone, along with the drone app for iOS or Android. Your drone connects to your smart device via Wifi and a set of controls appear on the touchscreen. You can also activate the FPV feature to see the drone’s viewpoint. This provides for a highly immersive flying experience. This feature does cost extra but makes this drone fun to fly.
