Some testing flying the Parrot Bebop at 30 degrees of inclination. The camera gimbals really take out the sensation of speed that you got when you did this kind of flying on the ARDrone 2.0. Needless to say, I estimate I’m flying at about 25-27 MPH when it’s going full speed.
You can see the entire airframe of the vehicle come into the camera frame when I try and take the turn at high speed. On the ARDrone 2, that same turn would have had about a 50% chance to crash the drone.
The second part of the video is using the return to home feature from ~350 meters from where I took off. You can just see my car in the frame when I start to let it come home autonomously.
I cannot wait for the mission planning features to come online with the Bebop, and I wish so much we could use a third party program like QGroundControl today to mission plan.
