Parrot Bebop Quadcopter Drone – Blue : Great first drone.or second.third

I had been searching for a decent drone for months, but didn’t not want to spend hundreds of dollars. I checked the specs and reviews and it was a winner, and i found one for $99 yes. The battery life is not 20mins but i did receive 2 batteries so it’s about 20mins with both batteries. I had purchased a yuneec 4k previously and i returned it because of connection issues, in comparison the bebop is the better drone overall to me. The con with the bebop is the app produced by the parrot company is useless because it crashes, as soon as i hit the takeoff it crashes, thankfully i adjusted the settings on my first flight to about 3ft in altitude and because the app never worked i literally grab it out the air and turned it off manually, i don’t think i damaged anything. I have an android phone running oreo 8 (nokia 6). It’s a third party app available but i haven’t tried it. My wife has an iphone and the app doesn’t crash when i use her phone, so hopefully they fix the issues with android.

Its not amazons fault this is a piece of crap it will automatically disconnect wont updaye and many more problems im 17 years old making only 15 an hour thought this would be a a good purchase.

Purchase a protocol from best buy. . Very light, wind moved it easy, didn’t have the app, just wasn’t happy. Returned it and got this one. App is easy to use after you read the directions and watch youtube videoswind don’t affect it too much unless its really really windygot the water floats for it, happy. . So happy with it even splurged and got the sky controller. Haven’t figured that out yet. But i’m sure that will be even coolertried to get away with spending $100 on a drone. Just go up one more level and get this one.

A fast and big drone with a great camera, it is not as big as the phantom which makes it great for travel, using it by an app on my phone which is great because i hate battery controllers, has good range and the video is nice, pretty stable, the wide angle lens helps to look down but if you prefer there is “ace” mode in the app which allows you to control where the camera looks, if you crash this one it seems pretty easy to fix by yourself.

The parrot bebop drone has many of the features of the more expensive models and performs amazingly well. The only negative is the short flying time of about 12 minutes.

Performing excellent so considerably, no hiccups using iphone as controller – and i have been using it in spots with lots of other wifi networks. Movie high-quality is really amazing in very good lights.

This drone is fantastic for the good quality and value but warning battery charger could or may well not perform appears it is a typical issue with this product. I bought my cargo currently so i could consider it on a excursion and battery charger definitely permit me finished.

Maybe i should really have saved my cash. This still seems like a toy, not the upper-entry stage device i was hoping for. The interface is wonderful and the digital camera functions properly. The wifi link is a tiny hokey. Irrespective of receiving two batteries with the gadget, a person crapped out after only a couple employs. Each and every battery is superior for fewer than 10 minutes, too bad.

  • When I first turned it on and hit the takeoff

  • I think no other drone competes at this price range

  • Perfect drone for a budget.

Parrot Bebop Quadcopter Drone – Blue

  • Easily updates to meet FAA requirements
  • Explore the world in 14 megapixel full HD 1080p and capture any vista with Bebop’s 180° field of view
  • Cruise at your own pace and return home automatically
  • Take clear photos and videos using advanced 3-axis image stabilization
  • Fly farther and faster with quick charging Lithium ion batteries (included)
  • Control your experience with our Free Flight Pro app (iOS, Android, Windows 8.1)

The video and stability far surpassed my expectations. For a sub $500 you cant beat it. Ive owned drones that cost more and had a fraction of the features this does.

Comes with 2 batteries each one runs about 7 min. After that you need to recharge.

My grandson had this top on his list for his 13th birthday. I questioned the safety of a drone for a youngster that age. I contacted the company and they provided me with excellent safety guidelines, even to the point of saying it was not recommended for kids under 14 years of age. His parents decided that there would be a rule that he doesn’t use the drone without an adult present. Since then i’ve contacted this seller three times with questions and recommendations on a travel case. Within a day, the seller would get back to me with helpful information. I’m not big on expensive online purchases, but even after i bought it and it passed the date for returns, when i had second thoughts, they said it as okay to return it unopened. The family went “drone-ing” together and had a great time . They sent me the movie and it brought me to tears it was so touching. I cannot recommend these sellers and this product highly enough. I’d give them a “6” if there were another star.

This is a fantastic alternative for a 1st-time drone user. It checked all the containers for me: experienced a terrific digital camera, superior variety and was not far too costly. The app functions properly though can take some receiving employed to and the drone captures outstanding video clips. The battery dies quite rapidly (within just about 10 minutes of use). They give you two battery packs, but if you’re on the lookout for one thing that will fly for extended length, i wouldn’t propose the product or service.

Pleasurable item and reasonably sturdy. I have crashed it a amount of situations and it nevertheless performs. One of the batteries was doa and tech help would swap it but it was to a lot of a inconvenience and i gave up. I use a tablet to management mine and it will work okay. Dose consider without end to hook up. I would counsel that you read through the on the net information and make absolutely sure you set up flight parameters right before you consider your 1st flight.

When i initial turned it on and hit the takeoff button on my cell phone, it quickly flipped over. What i browse on line was to change the prop positions. The black props are in front and the crimson ones are in back.

Fantastic valu at minimized price tag not v2 is out.

Died and missing on its very first flight with a slash off and motor stall.

Teaching video clips could be much more specific as i am a amateur.

    1. I have the bebop 2 and love it i wanted to get the original and try it out, with parrot help the drone is flying well. I had a problem with both batteries, but found out if you boost them with a 9v or 12v battery they will charge fine. (be careful with doing this make sure your connection are correct)also i had to update i did this with a usb drive formatted to fat 32 and copied the latest bebop file on a flash drive, the drone works well.

    I recently purchased this drone for myself for the holidays and upon opening the box the packaging was damaged and i wasn’t even given a battery to fly with. I have ordered a new battery and now see that the whole drone is a mistake to buy. Do not buy this drone and go get a dji if you can save up for it.

    1. I ordered this 3 times as a christmas gift for my son. I returned it 3 times because the batteries would not charge. I called parrot and they made the excuse that they had discontinued the item two years ago and the batteries are old. I called amazon to complain, and they put me on with a supervisor who — ta-da — couldn’t hear me so she hung up. Find a different drone manufacturer.

    I bought this in advance for a small trip i was taking with my son. We opened the box excitedly to see the drone. But to our disapppointment, neither of the 2 batteries worked. We bought this drone a few years ago at a big box stores and it was great.

    So i bought this product in april and gifted it to my son for his birthday on may 12th. To date the drone has not worked. The charger does not work (lights don’t come on when plugged in). I have been liaising with parrot to since may 18 to have my issue rectified and in their last correspondence i was asked to confirm the warranty on the product. I seriously don’t recommend anyone buy this drone.

    The charger itself was broken. Tried hard to find a workaround, did not work. Very frustrated with the product – don’t waste your time.

    Maybe i should have saved my money. This still seems like a toy, not the upper-entry level device i was hoping for. The interface is nice and the camera works well. The wifi connection is a little hokey. Despite getting 2 batteries with the device, one crapped out after only a few uses. Each battery is good for less than 10 minutes, too bad.

    The plain facts: this drone does not handle well for drone in it’s price class. Now, seeing that the drone itself is a disappointment let me move onto customer service. The drones battery also relays incorrect information. It may indicate lets say a 60% charge but in actuality it’s more closer to 30% and probably why customer service comes up with weird mismatching info on claims. Why provide false readings, is it a major defect?. Overall: poor control, poor handeling, very poor battery, nice looks, nice picture, poor connection, poor customer service.

    1. I will begin by saying this is not the fault of the seller, in fact i didn’t even purchase it from this seller but rather another third party. This is all the fault of parrot. If you have problems with this drone, good luck dealing with customer service. I bought this drone brand new, and upon trying to charge the batteries, the charger was faulty. I contacted parrot and after providing them with far more information than necessary and much time, they finally decided to send me a new charger for the bebop. Parrot must have chosen the slowest possible shipping option there is. It must have been shipped by horse and carriage, because it took 15 days to get here. After waiting 2 weeks, to my surprise, they had sent the wrong charger. Among all the information i sent them, they had the part numbers and pictures of both my drone and the charger – and they still managed to send me an incompatible charger. At this point i’m unwilling to go back through their customer service and wait another 2 weeks for another charger (that might even be wrong again), so consequently i will be sending it back.

    Do not buy this anticipating to fly out the box. When you add this to your cart, go ahead and spend another 70 on new batteries. The ones in the box do not work and are bad. Remote control didnt sync, had to return everything.

      1. I just got the parrot bebop to help film a construction project. I received it and try plugging in the batteries but neither battery would charge. How can both batteries not work. I saw a couple of battery issue reviews before purchasing but i thought i would at least have enough charge to fly. Brand new and doesn’t come with a working battery wtf.

    No second battery as advertised. Doesnt look like good quality at all. Have to ship drone back on my own cost.

    1. Got this drone as a present to myself in fall 2017 that i saved up for quite some time. When i got it, i took it out to fly and immediately one of the batteries started blinking red in the charger. Meaning that they sent me a defective battery. I contacted amazon and they sent me a $20 credit to make up for it (unfortunately batteries for this cost 40 or more so i was unable to replace it). I started flying on the remaining battery and loved it. The product works great and it is super fun and fast. I probably flew it about 20 times or so, and it was around 11 minute fly times. Then many life changes happened and winter, and when i got out my drone and the battery in the spring 2018, the remaining working battery was blinking red. I emailed parrot through the app, and never heard back. This was within my six month battery warranty. Some more drastic life changes happened and i moved and got a new job. Finally, once things calmed down a bit i once again got out my drone and tried to charge either of the batteries and neither worked. So i contacted parrot a few weeks ago thinking that they would either send me a new battery or at least give me a coupon toward a new one. Instead i get an email back saying i am not within my six month period and i get nothing. Not even an apology for a bad experience and a defective product. I emailed a couple more times and the emails got worse and more derogatory. They weren’t even being kind to me about my situation. Expect great a great product, batteries that don’t last, and don’t expect to get any support on your product.
