The successor to the Parrot Bebop is suitably named Parrot Bebop 2 and is an improvement in many ways to the already fantastic quadcopter. We will take a look at this quadcopter and tell you what makes it so good.
The Parrot Bebop 2 Drone is a fly by Wi-Fi quadcopter that can be controlled with a Wi-Fi enabled tablet or mobile phone using an app called FreeFlight3. The app gives you one tap take off and landing controls and directional control of the quadcopter. The app also gives you controls to move the on board camera 180 degrees in all directions.
The Wi-Fi connection is made between the quadcopter and the phone or tablet being use so there is no need for an extra router or hardware. For those of you who want more precise control and extended range of flight there is a hand controller called SkyController available which is sold separately. The SkyController provides precise movement control and extended range making it ideal for people who want the quadcopter to travel further away from the controller.
The Parrot Bebop 2 has a flight time of around 25 minutes and is powered by a 2700 mAh battery. This is plenty of time to take some fantastic aerial photography. The video is stored on an on board flash drive holding up to 8g of video.
The Parrot Bebop 2 can be located in the night sky with a flashing light on the rear of the quadcopter. The four blades on the Parrot Bebop 2 are flexible and lock on contact for extra safety. Spare blades can easily be purchased and are readily available online from many retailers.
When you are looking for video quality from a quadcopter that is easy to use for beginners then the Parrot Bebop 2 quadcopter has you covered. The camera will shoot 30 frames a second video at a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. The fish eye camera allows for movement of the camera using special software rather than a physical moving gimble. The image quality from the cameras is clear and video footage comes out smooth and looks professional.
The Parrot Bebop 2 quadcopter is the best value for an entry level quadcopter with top quality features. When simplicity and quality are important then you can't get much better than this.
I believe Parrot have taken the The Parrot Bebop and made this fantastic entry level flying camera better. The Parrot Bebop 2 is an improvement over the already great entry level flying camera.
