Parrot was one of the first companies to make a splash in the consumer UAV space when it released it’s AR 2.0 drone back in 2010. Now, just a few years later, it’s back with Bebop — a smaller, smarter, and more camera-focused drone.
Priced at just $500, the Bebop promises many of the same features as drones that cost twice as much money. But can it really compare to more expensive UAVs? We took it for a spin to find out.
You’d never know it just from looking at it, but Bebop is a pretty feature-packed little drone.
Under the hood it boasts four brushless outrunner motors, 1200mAH lithium polymer battery, an HD camera, 3-axis gimbal stabilization, GNSS location tracking (GPS and GLONASS), and a boatload of other sensors. Flight time is pegged at around 11 minutes, and it ships with two batteries, giving you about 22 minutes of airtime total.
