Parrot Bebop Drone review

 

While other flying-camera makers have gone after enthusiasts, the Parrot Bebop is very approachable to average consumers looking to start shooting aerial video and photos without a big investment. (There's a good reason why you can find Parrot's drones...

The Parrot Bebop Drone is small and lightweight for its capabilities. It's relatively tough, but also user repairable if it breaks. It can be piloted with a smartphone or tablet as well as the optional Skycontroller.

The large Skycontroller adds $400 if purchased with the Bebop or runs $500 when purchased separately. While its size and weight make it nice to travel with, it doesn't handle wind well, and its small batteries tap out in less than 11 minutes.

The Parrot Bebop Drone gets points for being a compact, durable, easy-to-use quadcopter for capturing good video and photos. Battery life, performance and overall value make it tough to flat-out recommend, though.

Parrot Bebop review

 

Is Parrot's Bebop just the drone to sweep you into the world of high-altitude movie making?

Great fun once you’ve got used to the controls ; Attention-grabbing flips and rolls ; Capable of capturing some really fun footage

GPS isn’t as accurate as it should be ; Struggles a bit in windy weather ; Camera is only smartphone-quality ; Small storage and short battery life

A user-friendly RC toy that reveals hidden depths the more you fly and film with it

Parrot Bebop Drone With Skycontroller

 

The small Parrot Bebop doesn't climb as high as competing drones, and its flight time is limited, but it's easy to fly and records stable video.

Stable 1080p video. Safe to fly indoors. Capable of performing aerial rolls and flips. Can be flown via dedicated remote or smart device. Raw and JPG image capture.

Very limited flight time. Expensive. Skycontroller is huge. Not the most stable drone in the air. Indoor video footage is noisy.

Conclusions Because of its price, the Parrot Bebop occupies a precarious place in the market. When purchased alone, without the Skycontroller remote, the $500 price point seems to be a bit on the high side for what is: essentially, a very capable toy...

Parrot Bebop Drone review: A strong, little quadcopter in need of better performance

 

Made from foam, strong plastic and fiberglass, the Parrot Bebop is the safer, gentler quadcopter that you can pilot with the smartphone in your pocket. In an attempt to capture some of those enthusiasts, however, Parrot perhaps stretched a bit too far,...

Parrot Bebop Drone Review

 

The Bebop is an impressive drone and a great example of how far drone technology has come in recent years. A few years ago, $500 wouldn't even get you a decent remote control, but now it gets you a very capable quadcopter with a very good camera,...

Phone/tablet control system familiar to non-fliers ; Easy to get started ; Strong image, video quality ; Parts cheap, widely available

Touch-screen controls lack sensitivity ; Short battery life ; Long recharging time

A fun-to-fly drone that takes high-quality video and stills, but with an awkward touch-screen controller.

Review: Parrot Bebop drone and Skycontroller

 

As the latest in Parrot's line of smartphone-operated drones, the Bebop boasts a number of improvements over the AR.Drone 2.0 including a better camera, longer range, and an optional joystick-based controller. We put the Bebop in the hands of several...

In addition to a sunshade, a protective hull for indoor flying, extra rotors and other peripherals and tools, the combination includes three batteries that are interchangeable between the Bebop or controller. Each battery is good for about 11 minutes...

Parrot Bebop Drone and Skycontroller Review: Looks Aren't Everything

 

You've graduated from your cheap beginner drone, and you want to try something new. Something that can shoot beautiful video from the sky—but doesn't cost $1,000+ like a camera-equipped DJI Phantom. You spot the $500 Parrot Bebop Drone, and pull the...

No. The Bebop can be fun, but it's not worth the trouble. Not for $500, certainly, where you can only control it with your smartphone, and not for $900 when you'll soon be able to buy a fully loaded DJI Phantom 3 including camera and gimbal for just...
