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

 

You've graduated from your cheap beginner drone, you know how to fly, and you want to try something new. Something that can shoot beautiful video from 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...

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 review

 

Highly portable ; Durable design ; Simple controls ; Excellent autonomous features ; Affordable price

Imprecise tablet controls ; Limited battery life ; Limited range

We had our doubts about the Bebop at first, but after flying it around for a couple weeks, we’ve learned not to judge a book by its cover. Don’t let the Styrofoam hull and Velcro-strapped battery pack fool you — this drone can fly with the best of ‘em.

Parrot Bebop Drone 2 review: Better than the original, but still shy of greatness

 

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.

The Parrot Bebop Drone 2 is small enough to stick in your average backpack, but sturdier than the original with about twice the battery life. Its propellers stop the instant they're obstructed, easy barrel rolls and flips and new banked turns...

It's pricey when bundled with the massive Skycontroller remote control, and its video quality hasn't improved much from the first-gen Bebop. In-app purchases are required for features other drone makers include. Its control range is dependent on your...

The Parrot Bebop 2 definitely improves on the original and remains a good choice for its portability and safer design, but stiffer competition and merely good image quality limit its overall appeal.

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

 

The Bebop has some appealing qualities including a compact, durable body and easy operation. Its overall value -- especially bundled with its extra wireless controller -- make it difficult to recommend.

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.

Review: Parrot Bebop

 

The Parrot Bebop has looks and fun accessories, but it's too easily outdone by the competition.

WIRED: Gorgeous race car design. Nose-cam captures high-def footage. Feels very sturdy compared with previous Parrots. Control app provides an abundance of flight-tweak options. Blade guards clip on and off with ease. Comes with two batteries

Requires a smartphone or tablet. Nose-cam footage has white-balance issues. Flight controls imprecise unless you add pricey joystick controller—and it’s not sold separately. Short flight times. No follow-me or flight-plan options

Parrot Bebop drone review: ambitious, unique, but dangerously inconsistent

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 review: App-controlled drone pairs high-flying specs and affordable price

 

The Parrot Bebop, which follows-up the company's AR Drone 2.0, is an affordable high-flier with built-in 1080p camera and app-based controls via tablet or smartphone. At £430 it couldn't exactly be called cheap, but in the world of drones it's an...

Affordable, easy to use, robust, two batteries included

Limited range, limited battery life, Skycontroller version expensive

The Parrot Bebop drone is a lot of fun. It's easy to fly using the smartphone app and captures clear, smooth footage to its on-board storage with each flight.
