Parrot Bebop 2 – Don’t fly into unknown territory.

The bebop 2, for the price tag, is great. It would not fly with as significantly security as a dji drone, it doesn’t have a pleasant a camera as a dji drone, and it doesn’t have as good of a online video downlink as a dji drone, but it flies perfectly enough to remember to a longtime rc pilot like myself, the online video downlink is good enough for casual backpack flying or racing, and the value is totally fair. The skycontroller or skycontroller 2 are needed in my humble opinion. I would in no way rely on a touchscreen to correctly control any drone.

Have experienced the bebop for a handful of weeks and am extremely happy with its flight qualities and relieve of use. I am a newbie and ace all of the configurations turned down, which is good for receiving started off. As many have famous, the digicam is not the ideal, but it is good for my wants. I like the point that there are no shifting sections ,this kind of as a gimbal, for the digital camera. I have added a several pictures i took from the bebop for reference. Great so far, i am going to see how it goes and put up updates. . Immediately after 30 flights and 2 crashes. . Durable, uncomplicated and enjoyment to fly.

Enjoyable to fly, will take fantastic images, oh it is not to pricey to mend when you crash it. And you will crash sooner or later on.

Flys very well with the skycontroller. Creates very good good quality films. Unsatisfactory range applying an android telephone to command it. Quite tough to get very first individual look at on both of my android units. Very challenging to get the wifi to link up with anything other than a skycontroller. I would obtain it once again with a skycontroller but i would seem a lot more carefully at other drones.

I truly feel like i need to create two evaluations. As been given, in manufacturing unit sealed box, the device was very dusty. Other reviewers have stated this as perfectly. Extra importantly, the left management adhere was pushed down into the housing. The mounting was damaged inside of. I am handy with applications, so i dismantled the sky controller and repaired it rather than go by the trouble of returning it. The box was undamaged, so i have to chalk this damaged controller up to amazingly very poor excellent command and inspection. It shouldn’t be up to the consumer to do inspection and restore. Now for the second part of the evaluation. The bebop 2 is very quick to fly.

Ive crashed a large amount with this drone and it keeps on ticking. This drone is also completely consumer serviceable. Indicating you can get alternative pieces for everything that breaks and basically change or fix it. (newer dji have to be sent back to the manufacturing facility). When utilised in combination with vr headsets and your phone, this small drone can be made to ‘look’ within just its a hundred and eighty fov even though traveling ahead (pan and tilt head tracking). Even though there are drones out there with increased resolution cameras (mavic), this tiny bebop will fireplace up everywhere that does not have serious interference (i cant say the very same for my mavic).

  • If your not needing 4k video recording this is a very good drone to have around.
  • Rugged, Dependable, Reliable, Easy to Set up, and To Fly.
  • Very bad quality control but very good drone

Amazing drone,shipping was fast,anything was in box,my new bebop 2 was flying thirty minutes following i opened box. I used ipad mini 4 to handle bebop and than skycontroller. . It truly is pretty easy and uncomplicated to fly this drone,i recommended it to all people.

I have experienced the bebop 2, with skycontroller for a though, but i only flew it a couple of situations. I also had the original bebop (one. The bebop 2 is a great starter drone. This weekend i gave it to a good friend and i assisted him fly it for the initial time. Effectively at least i tried to assist him. We had been traveling it and it hit the deck railing and fell two stories to the asphalt avenue below. When i walked to the railing and seemed in excess of, i was anticipating a pile of damaged drone components, but no. It was beeping (like a crying little one.

My drone disappeared in flight prepare and was never ever found again.

The package arrived with a tear on the deal and dust all around the merchandise within the box. They could have done much better packing the items at the chinese manufacturing unit wherever they built the parrot items. Even so, the parrot bebop2 and the black edition skycontroller labored like a charm. I come across the destructive comments, blogs, u tube uploads etcetera. About parrot bebop flyaways and crashes as unfounded. If these factors existed, they were all the faults of the pilots and lack of understanding, ignorance, and of lousy competencies or carelessness. I have flown the parrot bebop 2 with the black version skycontroller several times, and i have no problems with my bebop 2. This is the most recent flight posted on u-tube.i also highly recommend the in app purchase of the flight plan for $20. ]

Obtaining to make your mind up amongst a dji inspire or a phantom i selected this drone. The software package is fairly experienced and the drone capabilities allot greater than the prior model bebop 1. On the other hand as very good as this factor is there is some downfalls. Soon after the january update when the drone disconnects there is only a fifty/50 possibility of on return to residence the drone reconnecting. I have experienced two drone totals from it returning to household into the best of a tree as i experienced no command of it. (parrot replaced it each instances)when employing free of charge flight i now stand in a obvious region. (as the drone returns to the final level that the skycontroller was). They ought to definitely permit you designate a safe area to land on the map in situation of a disconnection. This way i can in the shade when i use the drone. As opposed with a $1200 phantom or a $2300 inspire i can reside with this.

  1. On the first day it flew away. I have been getting the run around from their customer service for going on seven weeks. If you are reading these words and considering a parrot product, don’t.

    Ive crashed a lot with this drone and it keeps on ticking. This drone is also totally user serviceable. Meaning you can get replacement parts for anything that breaks and simply replace or repair it. (newer dji have to be sent back to the factory). When used in combination with vr headsets and your phone, this little drone can be made to “look” within its 180 fov while flying forward (pan and tilt head tracking). While there are drones out there with higher resolution cameras (mavic), this little bebop will fire up anywhere that doesn’t have severe interference (i cant say the same for my mavic).

    The bebop 2, for the price, is perfect. It doesn’t fly with as much stability as a dji drone, it doesn’t have a nice a camera as a dji drone, and it doesn’t have as nice of a video downlink as a dji drone, but it flies well enough to please a longtime rc pilot like myself, the video downlink is good enough for casual backpack flying or racing, and the price is absolutely reasonable. The skycontroller or skycontroller 2 are necessary in my humble opinion. I would never trust a touchscreen to accurately control any drone.

This weekend i gave it to a friend and i helped him fly it for the first time. Well at least i tried to help him. We were flying it and it hit the deck railing and fell two stories to the asphalt street below. When i walked to the railing and looked over, i was expecting a pile of broken drone parts, but no. It was beeping (like a crying baby.

    Amazon won’t let me type out the whole situation, but in short:the batteries in these units are defective and it’s widely reported, even on parrot’s own forum. Hundreds of people are having this issue. Just go to google and type “bebop battery blinking light” and you’ll see. I contacted parrot and they said i have to buy new batteries at a cost of $110 plus tax and shipping, which are also likely to be defective because they wouldn’t comment on the point blank question “is this product defective?”. The supervisor i spoke with on the phone completely avoided that question when asked 3 separate times, never even acknowledging that i asked the question. I’m left with a $500 drone that flew for 10-15 hours and if i want it to work again, i have to pay another ~$140. I even compromised and asked if they could send me a single battery so i can do this strange hot swap method (if you google the term, you’ll see what i mean) and was told absolutely not. 2nd worst customer support i’ve ever received. Parrot does not stand behind their product or admit a clear fault in their product.

    1. Flys well with the skycontroller. Produces good quality movies. Unsatisfactory range using an android phone to control it. Very difficult to get first person view on either of my android devices. Very difficult to get the wifi to link up with anything other than a skycontroller. I would buy it again with a skycontroller but i would look more carefully at other drones.

    Fun to fly, takes great pictures, oh it is not to expensive to repair when you crash it. And you will crash sooner or later.

    Having to decide between a dji inspire or a phantom i chose this drone. The software is reasonably mature and the drone functions allot better than the previous model bebop 1. However as good as this thing is there is some downfalls. After the january update when the drone disconnects there is only a 50/50 chance of on return to home the drone reconnecting. I have had two drone totals from it returning to home into the top of a tree as i had no control of it. (parrot replaced it both times)when using free flight i now stand in a clear area. (as the drone returns to the last point that the skycontroller was). They should really let you designate a safe area to land on the map in case of a disconnection. This way i can in the shade when i use the drone. Compared with a $1200 phantom or a $2300 inspire i can live with this.

    1. I feel like i should write two reviews. As received, in factory sealed box, the unit was very dusty. Other reviewers have mentioned this as well. More importantly, the left control stick was pushed down into the housing. The mounting was broken inside. I’m handy with tools, so i dismantled the sky controller and repaired it rather than go through the hassle of returning it. The box was undamaged, so i have to chalk this broken controller up to amazingly poor quality control and inspection. It shouldn’t be up to the buyer to do inspection and repair. Now for the second part of the review. The bebop 2 is incredibly easy to fly.
