Description

The body seems otherwise virtually identical to its predecessor, although the rotors have now been color coded to make it a little easier to remember where each one goes. The Parrot Bebop 2 Drone gives you superior flight performance with easy and intuitive piloting from your iPhone or iPad.

The broad, 90-degree field of vision offered by the Parrot Cockpit glasses lenses gives you total immersion. But when Parrot promises you can get to 300 meters and sells a drone that routinely disconnects at 150 meters, (or 600 meters instead of 2 kilometers with the SkyController) I’m loath to recommend the unit to anyone. I was using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which has a high-resolution screen – but the video feed from the app is actually only 720p. The distance is going to vary depending on everything from trees and buildings to other wireless signal traffic to the device you're using. There’s GPS and GLONASS positioning, ultrasound on the base with visual positioning, and an altimeter.Going with just the Skycontroller is a fine choice if you just want to practice your skills and do a few tricks—the Bebop 2 can flip forward, backward, or barrel roll in either direction. PCMag is obsessed with culture and tech, offering smart, spirited coverage of the products and innovations that shape our connected lives and the digital trends that keep us talking.

Parrot launched the Bebop 2 back in 2016, but this is an updated model which comes as a comprehensive package for both filming and also playing with FPV. The sensors prevent you from lowering the drone more than about six inches above the ground, and pressing the landing button just cuts power to the motors so it drops to the floor with zero grace. That said I flew mine for 6km overall flight distance which took it 12mins so the battery performance is great. The propellers all detach easily with a special tool that is supplied and the camera and battery are also very easily accessed.p.s Do not put the mobile/tablet in AIRPLANE mode as this affects the GPS on the app so just disable the radios manually on the devices and you will get great performance/range. It’s a lot like DJI’s Go app, in fact, and we like that you can cache local map data before you head out. While Parrot has been generous to include the FPV goggles and remote controller accessories, a storage case would have been super-handy since there’s no means to easily transport the Bebop 2 Power safely.

But once it passed about 100 meters, the video feed began to get choppy, freezing up and pixelating. And frankly, if high-quality aerial photos and video are what's most important, you're better off with the Phantom 3 Standard. They’re reasonably comfortable and let you switch to ‘direct view’ so you don’t have to remove the headset to see the drone itself. While this sounds intuitive, we found that it actually wasn't, and some lag in the copter's response time made it incredibly difficult to pilot this way.No te preocupes si el dron falla en vuelo inexplicablemente, parrot te manda uno nuevo siempre y cuando les envíes el vídeo, aunque para esto tienes que poder localizar el dron y acceder a él. These are compatible with the majority of smartphones and place you at the heart of the action with a wide, 96-degree field of view. There are several good reasons to pick the Bebop 2, but value and image quality are further down on the list then they should be. Parrot bills it as an option for long-distance flight, but it's a better performer at shorter distances and lower altitudes. I didn’t actually crash the Bebop 2 Power during testing, so can’t accurately attest to its resilience.
