What customers say about "Key Specs"
Parrot Bebop Quadcopter Drone - Red
  • GPS integration to pilot the drone using a predefined path.
  • What I like most about this drone is that the range is huge.
  • Through the app, you can customize the drone's vertical speed and horizontal speed.
  • The only down side is the battery only last 10-12 minutes.
  • Seemed like a nice product. Decide to return the item due to the fact it doesnt come with the controller and range is limited without it.
Parrot Bebop 2 Red
  • Long flight times about 21min.
  • No external gimbal to break on a hard landing. I currently use this with a wifi range extender to achieve fairly long range flights.
  • The free Android app seems to function well as does the optional Flight Plan ($20) which allows you to pre-program flights with waypoints, etc.
  • It has good size, but it is difficult to handle, the reception is not as good as a DJI, the camera is way too sensitive.
  • Awesome drone! The range isn’t that great with a phone. It’s definitely not 1.25 miles.

What customers say about "Flight"
Parrot Bebop Quadcopter Drone - Red
  • Easy to Fly: (Hit the Take off button) Bebop takes off and hovers about 5 feet off the ground.
  • Bebop lands it self. 3 different modes for flying (Normal, Ace, Joypad).
  • Stability: I've flown multiple times in strong winds and it auto corrects itself quite well. Video stability is unbelievable.
  • Faster speed and response of the drone.
  • The speed and control the amazing.
Parrot Bebop 2 Red
  • Flexibility to fly with smart device or with SkyController for longer range.
  • The video and picture quality are great and the speed of the drone is awesome. Have been flying it many hours so far without any problem.
  • This drone is very easy to control and I started getting the hang of it very quickly.
  • Easy to fly and very responsive with controller. And look nice.
  • Easy to navigate with controller. Works well even in windy conditions.
  • SkyController is bulky and heavy.
  • Range is okay at best, you WILL NOT get anywhere near the manufacturers advertised range. In an open field I lost reception at 1100ft.

What customers say about "Features"
Parrot Bebop Quadcopter Drone - Red
  • Video quality is very good and you don't get that ugly warping you see on some other products.
  • Integrated fish eye camera with higher resolution, image stability and ability to steer the camera digitally.
  • The live video feed quality is great, but as the drone gets farther away, the quality becomes a bit choppy.
  • Probably the worst manual in the world. (Thankfully they've added a better one on their website).
  • No expandable storage: 8gb will fill up after using the two batteries supplied. So you will need to offload it if you get additional batteries.
Parrot Bebop 2 Red
  • Stable and good 3 axis video stabilization.
  • Rich autonomous features with optional app purchase.
  • Cheaper parts and spares than DJI products.
  • Poor video quality with low dynamic range and low sampling.
  • Fewer accessories (backpacks) as for DJI products.
  • Image quality isn't as good as expected but is acceptable.
