The blue BeBop Drone Quadcopter with 14 Megapixel Flight Camera from Parrot is a Wi-Fi-based, mobile device operated RC aircraft capable of capturing 1080p aerial video and taking 14 megapixel still photos. Avoiding the added weight and power consumption of a motorized gimbal, the camera - notably - features an electronic image stabilization system that relies on a 3-axis motion sensor and a 180° fisheye lens from which it crops an image.

The BeBop 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, or connect a USB storage device for increased capacity.

For safe flying indoors, the Indoor Hull is included. This features a pair for prop guard/bumpers, one for the right and one for the left side. For better performance outside, the Indoor Hull can be left off. The BeBop Drone powers from a 1200mAh lithium-polymer (LiPo) battery, which is estimated to provide around 12 minutes of flying time. Two batteries and a charger are included in the box.

14 Megapixel "Fisheye" Camera with 3-Axis Stabilization
The built-in camera can record up to 1080p video as well as capture 14 megapixel photos. Notably, the camera uses a 3-axis electronic image stabilization system to avoid the added weight and power consumption of a mechanical gimbal. The system works by cropping a windowed portion of the total image yielded by the camera's 180° fisheye lens, thus counteracting the effects of wind turbulence for stabilized, horizontally level video. Plus, you can use the piloting app to electronically adjust the camera angle. There camera lens port is weather resistant

Safety Features
Constructed from impact-resistant ABS plastic. The propellers are designed to stop automatically on contact, and initiating the Emergency Mode causes the BeBop Drone to land immediately. Finally, there is an indoor "EPP" hull that incorporates prop guards for safer indoor flights

Return Home
Relying on the built-in GPS receiver, the Return Home feature causes autopilot to engage, flying the BeBop Drone back to the take-off point

Linux-Based Flight Control Computer
The Parrot P7 flight computer features a dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU, and 8GB of flash memory. The hardware is fixed on a magnesium shelf that acts as electromagnetic shielding and as a radiator. The computer runs the Linux OS and there is an SDK available for third-party software development

Multi-sensor Flight Stability System
To help ensure stability, without compromising on maneuverability, the BeBop Drone uses an aggregation of data from several sensors: a 3-axes accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ultrasound, and pressure sensor as well as a vertical camera to track the speed

App-Based Wi-Fi Control
Using standard MIMO Wi-Fi, the BeBop Drone is controlled by a smartphone or other mobile device and features a range of up to 984'. You simply need to create an "ad-hoc" connection between the controlling device and the aircraft. No router or other hardware is required, though and optional range extender (part of the Skycontroller system), available separately, allows the BeBop Drone to be operated from up to 1.2 miles away. Antennas are included for 2.4 and 5 GHz so you can choose the frequency that works best depending on other sources of interference

Freeflight 3.0 App for iOS and Android
This free application, available for download from the Apple Apps Store and Android Play Store, allows you to control the quadcopter, operate the camera, and more. Suitable for both tablets and smartphones, the app provides a low-latency feed from the camera, and gives you a virtual joystick that simulates the ergonomics of a traditional RC transmitter

One-touch Sharing
With an Internet connection, you can even share snapshots or video of your flights directly to YouTube and other social media straight from the app

Embedded GPS with Flight Map Control
The BeBop Drone integrates a GNSS chipset that delivers GPS (GLONASS plus GALILEO) data to the flight computer. GPS gives you the ability to plan your flights ahead of time on your mobile device by placing waypoints on your screen for the aircraft to follow automatically. GPS and other data can be recorded in-flight for later analysis or to create a 3D model of your flight using the separately available Pilot Academy app

Compatible with Skycontroller System
The separately available Skycontroller extends the BeBop Drone's Wi-Fi range up to 1.2 miles and features a hardware-based control pad. To maximize the first-person flying experience, the Skycontroller allows you can connect third-party FPV glasses, including the Oculus Rift, Zeiss Cinemizer, Epson Moverio, and Sony Personal Viewer.

Cameron, South Africa. 8 February 2017

My Drone arrived on Monday and I was super stoked. I took it out for a few flights without a hitch and decided to try Flight Plan. Again the first few flights worked well. However, today when I did a usual route ( no further then 100m from me) it all of a sudden disconnected and instead of returning; it flew away. I am now drone-less after having spent 8k on a drone which disconnected within 100m, flew off the Flight Plan course and did not return; ending up flying off to God knows where...

Etienne, South Africa. 21 February 2017

The lack of protection around the lens has led to the camera lens getting scratched upon the first minor impact when I first tried to fly the drone. The image is now completely blurry and the only solve seems to be to buy a new 150€ camera! Surely there must be another cheaper fix!
