Parrot Bebop Drone 2: обзор характеристик и функций

Французская компания Parrot выпускает современные, функциональные, стильные квадрокоптеры. Свой первый беспилотник компания представила в 2010 году и с тех пор они стали одними из самых популярных и известных в сфере авиамоделирования. Модели коптеров постоянно совершенствуются, поэтому легко могут составить конкуренцию другим представителям на рынке. Квадрокоптер Parrot Bebop Drone 2 отличается от первого улучшенными лётными параметрами, увеличенной продолжительностью автономной работы, более современной камерой и меньшими размерами корпуса. Далее рассмотрим аппарат поподробнее, предоставив его подробный обзор.

Внешний вид

Внешне квадрокоптер выглядит очень современно, сразу видно, что перед нами высокотехнологичный аппарат. Производится в двух цветовых решениях: чёрный с белой вставкой и чёрный с красной вставкой. Также можно встретить модель в черном цвете.

Parrot Bebop 2 имеет очень высокое качество сборки. Его корпус выполнен в виде рамы из прочного пластика с ножками, которые усилены рёбрами жёсткости. Ножки являются отдельными крепящимися на винтах деталями. Это очень удобно, поскольку в случае поломки не нужно будет покупать дорогостоящую раму, а достаточно лишь приобрести новый комплект ножек.

На раме находится фюзеляж, где размещена системная плата со сменным модулем навигации. Плата защищена полимерной обечайкой, которая способна восстанавливать свою первоначальную форму после удара. Также корпус квадрокоптера содержит камеру, которая встроена под углом в отдельный блок передней части фюзеляжа. Блок выполнен из современного материала – полипропилена, который широко используется в авиамоделизме благодаря своей прочности, эластичности, способности не впитывать влагу и не крошиться.

Комплектация

Согласно информации официального сайта производителя, данная модель квадрокоптера выпускается в нескольких вариациях, обзор которых представлен ниже:

  • Bebop 2;

Bebop 2 vs Bebop Drone comparison

Released in last November, the Bebop 2 is the new high-end video drone from Parrot.

More powerful, more robust and with an increased autonomy, the Bebop 2 is the first leisure drone of 500gr with 25 minutes of flight time!

We will focus in this article on the major evolutions between the Bebop Drone (still available) and the new Bebop 2.

Size

First of all, in terms of size, the Bebop 2 is bigger than the Bebop 1, the Bebop 2 has a 290mm frame type while the Bebop 1 has a 250mm frame type.

Its overall dimensions are now 32.8 x 38.2 cm (Bebop 2) versus 28 x 32 cm (Bebop 1)

Propellers 

The Bebop 2 now has 6 inches propellers versus 5.5 inches propellers on the Bebop 1 which gives it more thrust (+10% output)!

A Bebop 1 propeller (in black) and a Bebop 2 propeller (in red)

Structure

The new Bebop no longer has dual arms but aviation inspired single arms. These new arms, flexible and robust give it a clean look.

LED

The new Bebop 2 also has a new LED tail light, which is also the on / off button. This very bright LED is visible from a great distance and helps you spot your Bebop 2 and checks its orientation while flying.

A major improvement of the Bebop 2 is its new high capacity battery !The capacity of the Bebop 2’s battery has been highly increased (2700 mAh) in comparison to the Bebop 1’s battery (1200 mAh).

The battery also has a new locking system using a latch on its back which means velcro strap are no longer needed to keep it in place.

The result? the Bebop 2 now has an outstanding 25 min fly time in “Normal” piloting and about 21 minute in aggressive flying style or with heavy winds.

The Bebop 1 has a 11 min flight time in normal piloting.

The Bebop 2 has a whole new 180° fish-eye lens, more tilted towards the ground than the one of the Bebop 1 which allows the Bebop 2 to catch more ground and less sky. You can also shoot from above (up to 90° on Bebop 2).

The lens also catches more light for a better video quality in low light conditions. Click here to watch a video recorded by the Bebop 2 in low light conditions.

Speed

With a maximal inclination of 35° versus 30° on the Bebop 1, the Bebop 2 is faster and quicker than its predecessor.

It can now reach a top speed of 18 m/s (65 kph) versus 13  m/s (47 kph) on the Bebop 1.

The climbing top speed has also been increased since the Bebop 2 can now have a maximal vertical speed of 6 m/s versus 2.5 m/s on the Bebop 1.

GPS

The new Bebop 2 has a new Ublox Neo 8M GPS chip with an increased precision! The number of maximum visible satellites has also been increased (12 satellites max on the Bebop 1 VS 19 satellites max on the Bebop 2)

This increased GPS reliability is a real advantage for automated flight modes (Return to Home, Flight Plan) and high altitude stability.

Motors 

The Bebop 2 also has new optimized motors with a higher winding density and reinforcements giving them a better resistance to shocks.

The ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers) have also been improved for more power, reactivity and performance (+10%).

Wind resistance 

Thanks to theses upgrades, the Bebop 2 now has a way better wind resistance than the Bebop 1.

Watch Bebop 2 wind turbine test video here!

Skycontroller

The Bebop 2 is sold alone or in a bundle with the new “Black Edition” Skycontroller . This new controller features a black body, a new position of buttons and a new battery connector identical to the one of the Bebop 2 allowing it to use the Bebop 2’s 2700 mAh batteries.

The Bebop 2 remains entirely compatible with the older Skycontrollers to ensure a great connectivity on long distance flights (2km max) and a video streaming through the HDMI port. This HDMI port can be used to connect optional FPV goggles.

Flight plan

In the same way, the automated flight planification tool: Flight Plan (available though in-app purchase) of FreeFlight 3 can be used on both Bebop 1 and Bebop 2 drones. You’ll be ask to choose which drone you want to use before planning your flights in order to adapt the settings to the chosen drone.

Hersteller Parrot hat nun auch einige erste Videos von glücklichen Testpiloten für euch bereit gestellt, die ihr euch hier ansehen könnt! Wir sind definitiv begeistert von der neuen Power Drohne von Parrot!

Ein Leichtgewicht

Das Bebop Drone Modell ist leichtgewichtig, sehr leicht zu steuern und hat alles, was sogar Laien interessieren könnte. Der Dronen Spezialist Parrot hat ein absolutes Highlight vorgestellt und wer ein ultimatives Flugerlebnis haben möchte, kann dies mit einer Oculus Rift Virtual-Reality-Brille nutzen. Im Vergleich mit anderen Modellflugzeugen und auch Hubschraubern bieten diese Multirotor Dronen einen ganz besonderen Vorteil. Damit die Nutzer keinen Unsinn mit dieser Drone anstellen können, passt die Elektronik auf. Die Drone ist tatsächlich in der Lage sich selber zu stabilisieren. Damit man diese Drone fernsteuern kann, ist ein Smartphone oder ein Tablet schon vollkommen ausreichend. Die AR Drone Mini hat den Hersteller Parrot bekannt gemacht und für seinen Erfolg gesorgt. Diese Drone wurde auf der Elektronikmessee CES , am Anfang des Jahres 2014, vorgestellt. Der Körper der Parrot Bebop Drone ist nicht mehr wie die Vorgängerin aus Styropor, sondern sie besteht jetzt aus einem festen und stabilen Material, das sich auch bei nicht so guten Wetterverhältnissen als vorteilhaft zeigt.

Kompakt und trotzdem ein Multitalent

Aus welchem Material es aber letztlich besteht, wird man aber erst etwas später erfahren, genau wie mit einigen andern Einzelheiten. Die absolute Überraschung dieses Unternehmens war aber dann das Modell Bebop und diese hat es ganz besonders in sich. Mit dem neuen Video bekommt man einen Eindruck nicht nur von der Qualität dieser Parrot Bebop Drone, sondern auch von der neuen Kamera, die sich in dieser Bebop Drone befindet. Mit einem Gewicht, das bei genau 400 Gramm liegt und eine Größe von 28 x 32x 3,6 cm aufweist, erscheint dieses Modell überaus kompakt. Außerdem bietet sie sehr viele Features an, trotz ihrer geringen Größe. Der Hersteller bezeichnet seine neue Bebop Drone als einen „super-high-tec Freizeit-Quadricopter“ mit einer Rechenkapazität, die achtfach höher ist, als bei dem Vorgänger. Mit dem Linux Betriebssystem funktioniert die Bebop Drone einwandfrei, und für die Entwickler soll es eine Software geben, das Development Kit (SDK). Der Hersteller garantiert, dass sich die Bebop Drone selber stabilisiert und für diesen Fall hat sie eine Vielzahl an Sensoren an Bord.

Hohe Reichweite

Damit die Parrot Bebop Drone eine Reichweite von 300 m erreichen kann, wird von der Steuerung ein eigenes Wi-Fi mit dem n-Standard benötigt. Mit der eingebauten Kamera werden nicht nur Full HD Videos von 1080p ermöglicht, sondern sie ist außerdem auch noch auf drei Achsen stabilisiert. Sogar bei stärkeren Windböen bleibt das Bild stabil und zeigt sich klar. Unter anderem ist auch die Linse mit einem optimalen Weitwinkel -Fischaugen-Objektiv ausgestattet. Hier zeigen sich weitaus weniger Verzerrungen, als es bei so manchen anderen Kameras oder Actioncams der Fall ist. Mit dem absolut faszinierendsten Feature zeigt sich der Skycontroller.

Mit diesem lassen sich via HDMI Videobrillen anschließen, die man nutzen kann, wie zum Beispiel die Epson Moverio, Cinemizer, Oculus Rift und auch von Zeiss, aber auch noch viele andere. Damit hat man dann garantiert das ultimative Flugerlebnis. Aber mit den Skycontroller hat man auch noch ein ganz anderes Erlebnis und zwar hat man nicht nur die Halterung, die sich für das Tablet oder das Smartphone eignet. Es bieten sich auch zwei klassische Steuerknüppel an und mit den vier eingebauten Antennen und einer Wi-Fi Verstärkung ist es möglich, dass die Bebop Drone eine Entfernung von 300 m auf bis zu faszinierenden 2 km erhöhen kann. Was noch nicht feststeht. Was für ein Akku diese Parrot Bebop Drone und ob diese Bebop Drone einen besonderen neuen Akku haben wird bzw. mit diesem dann auch länger als nur 20 Minuten in der Luft bleiben kann, ist jetzt noch nicht festzustellen, da hierüber noch keine Aussagen gemacht worden sind. Aber man darf hoffen und kann eigentlich auch davon ausgehen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZdSMAG90Rs

Die App

Mit der brandneuen Freelight 3.0-App, die für das iPhone, das iPad und auch für alle Android -Geräte angeboten werden, kann die Bebop Drone gesteuert werden. Außerdem kann man sofort Live sehen, was die Kamera aufgenommen hat. Mit einem einfachen Fingertippen kann man ein Foto machen und genauso lassen sich diese Aufnahmen zu einem andern Zeitpunkt ganz schnell und unkompliziert per social network teilen.Es bietet sich auch an, dass man die Flugstrecke vorab festlegen kann. Mit dem GPS kann sich die Parrot Bebop Drohne selber orientieren. Der Notfallmodus, den dieser Quadrocopter besitzt, sorgt er dafür, dass die Propeller anhalten und die Drone sicher gelandet werden kann. Mit dem Notfall-Modus des Quadrocopters ist folgendes Szenario verbunden: Bei Stößen oder starken Winden werden die Propeller sofort gestoppt und das Gerät kann sicher gelandet. SkyController bietet bis zu 3 km Reichweite und einen Support für die Occulus Rift. Das einzige, was man noch nicht zu hundert Prozent über die Parrot Bebop Drone weiß, ist letztlich der Preis. Dieser wird letztlich bis Ende des Jahres bekannt gegeben, wird aber vermutlich zwischen 300 und 1000 US-Dollar liegen. Diese faszinierende Parrot Bebop Drone wird im vierten Quartal 2014 herausgebracht. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4qL-vrfl88 Auf Youtube wird man sich diese unglaubliche Bebop Drone ansehen können und sich mit den Videos ein Bild machen, was dieses schöne Spielzeug alles kann.

Parrot macht mit Bebop alles richtig

Eine Faszination, die besser ist als jedes andere Modellflugzeug, das es bisher auf dem Markt gab oder momentan gibt. Der Hersteller Parrot hat sich wirklich etwas Herausragendes einfallen lassen und sorgt für ein ganz besonderes Modell. Mit dieser Bebop Drone hat man sehr viel Vergnügen und kann die tollsten Videos und Bilder machen. Es gibt viele Dinge, die noch nicht veröffentlicht sind und die vielleicht noch für die eine oder andere große Überraschung sorgen werden. Die Parrot Bebop Drone wird sich als eine besondere Überraschung herausstellen und bei den Fans dieser Modelle für Begeisterung sorgen. Das ist ein Flugspaß, der sehr viel zu bieten hat und der ganz andere Dimensionen eröffnet, wie es bei dem Vorgänger der Fall war.

Bestandteile

Wenn man die Drohne zerlegt, wird man auf folgende Bestandteile stoßen: eine Hauptplatine Parrot P7, eine Fischaugenlinse mit einem 14 Megapixel Sensor, bürstenlose Außenläufermotoren, eine Fiberglas verstärkte ABS Struktur, außerdem Dreiflügelproppeller aus Polycarbonat, eine Trägheitsmesseinheit, ein Gyroskop, WLAN MIMO Antennen, eine vertikale Stabilisierungskamera und Ultraschallsensoren. Die Hülle aus EPP ist ganz einfach zu befestigen aber auch zu entfernen, damit Innen- und Außenflüge getätigt werden können. Außerdem werden so die Propeller vor Stößen geschützt. Die Quad-Core-GPU – 8GB Flash Memory sind alle an Magnesiumsockel befestigt worden. Sie werden als ein elektromagnetisches Schild genutzt sowie auch als Kühlkörper. Ob es für die Profis ist oder auch für die Privatanwender, die Bebop Drone ist für die unterschiedlichsten Einsatzzwecke geeignet. Um welche es dabei aber genau geht, wird man aber noch erfahren. Alle Geheimnisse sind noch nicht gelüftet, denn es soll ja noch einige Überraschungen geben, wenn die Drohne auf den Markt kommt und für jedermann erhältlich ist. Sie wird aber ganz bestimmt auf sehr vielen Wunschzettel stehen. Parrot weiß, wie man Überraschungen spannend hält. In Kürze könnt ihr die Bebop Drone von Parrot auch hier online vorbestellen! Stay tuned!

Parrot Bebop 2 Drone Review

Parrot has updated its popular camera drone with the Bebop 2, which promises double the flying time and true autonomous flying. It mostly succeeds: we found that the Bebop 2 is a blast to fly, with nippy performance, excellent battery life and very attractive video. There are still some rough edges, though: the touch-screen controls lack sensitivity, and the fish-eye lens is rather prone to lens flares and similar glitches.

Design

You would be forgiven for mistaking the Bebop 2 for the original Bebop. It features the same shape, plastic frame construction and fisheye lens on the front, except that now only a small amount of fragile and easily scratched foam surrounds the front lens. Parrot also claims to have completely reengineered of the frame and body to make the drone tougher without increasing weight and size (17 ounces, 13 x 12 x 4 inches).

(Image credit: Richard Baguley)

A good chunk of the weight is the battery, a hefty (6.8 ounces) 2700mAh Li-Polymer battery that slide locks into the back of the case. That is more than double the capacity (and weight) of the original Bebop's battery. Parrot also includes a couple of velcro strips that loop around it for extra security.

The fisheye lens, with its 170-degree view, sits on the front. This means that the Bebop 2 can see almost everything in front of it; far left, right, above and below. It doesn’t record all of this view: instead, it uses this to stabilize the video by sensing the movement of the quadcopter and moving the area captured as video to respond to that. So, when the quadcopter tilts because it is about to move forward, the computer inside the Bebop 2 responds and moves the video capture area to cancel that movement. Most drones use an active stabilization system, where motors physically move the camera to compensate, but the Bebop 2 does all this in software, using the fisheye lens as a digital stabilization system. It sounds more complex (and it is), but it is quite effective: in most situations, the video is smooth and sharp, with gentle pans and turns that belie the more aggressive turns that the quadcopter is making. It also means that you can pan and tilt the recorded video view without moving the quadcopter itself.

In addition to this digital stabilization, the camera and other electronics are in a part of the body that is physically separate from the base. These two parts are connected with soft rubber spheres, which absorb the vibrations from the motors. Again, this system is quite effective.

Specs

Rotors: 4 (3 blades per rotor); replaceable, 5-inch diameterBattery Size: 2,700-mAh Li-ion polymer (quadcopter)Battery Life: 25/22 minutes (claimed/tested)Flight Time: 23 minutesCamera: 14 megapixels, 30 fpsSmartphone Controlled: OptionalSize: 13 x 12 x 4 inchesWeight: 17 ounces

Controller

There are two ways to control the Bebop 2: from a smartphone or from the new Skycontroller Black. We tried both. The smartphone control is through the FlightAware 3 app, available for both iOS and Android. This is the same app that used for lower-end drones from Parrot, but don’t be fooled: it is a sophisticated app that offers a lot of features.

(Image credit: Richard Baguley)

From here, you can fly the drone directly, track the GPS location of the quadcopter and smartphone, take photos or videos and access all of the settings. The app is a little confusing at first, throwing a lot of data on the screen at once on top of the live view from the quadcopter. However, it isn’t difficult to figure out once you figure it out, and it provides a simple interface to most of the features of this drone, including takeoff, landing, video start and stop, still images and battery levels.

Screen: FreeFlight

The other way to control the Bebop 2 is with the new Skycontroller black. This is a large, rather heavy device that looks like a prop from a Sci-Fi movie. It dwarfs the controllers of other drones like the Yuneec Q500, with an antenna that is bigger than most of them.  It includes two control sticks, a number of buttons and a large antenna on the front that can be moved and tilted to point towards the Bebop 2. You phone or tablet running FightAware 3 fits into the middle of this, locking into place so you can see the live video on the screen. A neck strap is also included, and this is a good thing, as the whole thing with an iPad mini attached weighs in at a cumbersome 4 lbs and 3.3 oz (just over 1.9Kg). You need both hands to hold and use the Skycontroller black, with each hand holding one of the handles. The left hand gets one control stick and buttons to start recording, access settings, go back and a mouse control to navigate the on-screen menu. The right hand gets the other control stick, plus buttons to mark a GPS location, return home and to move the camera view. On the bottom of the device are LED indicators for the battery on the Skycontroller, on the drone and signal strength between the two.

The idea here is that it completely replaces the touch screen control: you should be able to fly and change settings without ever taking your hands off the controllers. It works fairly well once you figure out the button layout: I was able to complete several flights using the Skycontroller and an iPad Mini without touching the iPad screen once the app was running. The control sticks also fall naturally under the thumbs when you grasp the handles, and it is comfortable to use for longer flights once you adjust the weight around your neck. However, the Skycontroller black is large and heavy, which seems to defeat the purpose of the Bebop 2 somewhat. On its own, the Bebop 2 is a very portable drone that you can easily take with you. Add in the Skycontroller black, though, and you have a large, bulky and awkward thing to carry around with you.

The Skycontroller does allow you to use other interesting features, though. Plug a video headset into the HDMI port and you get to see what the quadcopter sees. A USB port also allows you to control the drone from a computer through the ARDRoneSDK that the company offers to programmers.

MORE: Parrot Bebop Drone Review

However you are controlling the Bebop 2, it connects using a 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi signal, which is automatically selected to minimize interference. If you are using a tablet and FreeFlight 3, the connection is between the quadcopter and your phone/tablet. If you are using the Skycontroller, there is one Wi-Fi connection between the Bebop and the Skycontroller, and another between Skycontroller and your device. Either way, this means that you have to fiddle with the Wi-Fi settings on your phone/tablet to use, which some users may find confusing. We had no problems maintaining a connection using an iPad alone up to about 100 feet away, although the preview video did get rather glitchy at this distance, making it harder to control The Skycontroller definitely gets the stronger signal, thanks to the huge antenna on the front.

This was able to maintain a strong connection to the quadcopter over much longer distances: we tested it to several hundred feet, and Parrot claims it can manage up to about 3.5 miles (6 kilometers).  If you are planning on flying at long distances (or in areas that are crowded with Wi-Fi signals), the Skycontroller would be a useful addition. Casual fliers won’t need it, though.

Flying

Flying through the FreeFlight 3 app is a mixed experience. On the upside, the app lowers the learning curve for new fliers, because it is automated. To take off, you tap the takeoff button, and the quadcopter lifts off and hovers about 5 feet off the floor. To maneuver, you press one of the virtual control sticks on the screen and move your finger. In the default setup, the left stick control altitude and rotation, while the right one controls left-right and front-back movement. There is also a trick mode: select the trick you want from the drop-down menu at the top of the screen and double-tap, and the Bebop 2 does the trick. These tricks include front and back somersaults or a left and right flip. When you are done, tap the landing button and the Bebop 2 gently settles down on the ground. It is very simple and straightforward to learn and use, which will suit nervous or novice fliers.

The downside is that there is a slight (but perceptible) delay between moving the on-screen control and the quadcopter responding, and the controls lack subtlety. The delay is more annoying than problematic, but it would be advisable to avoid obstacles and high-speed flying until you get used to it. The lack of subtlety is also annoying, because it makes it more difficult to do things like make a very slow pass over a scenic location while taking video. There is nothing in between hovering and a moderate speed pass, presumably to smooth out any finger twitches. For most users, though, the ease of use will overweight the disadvantages.

The Skycontroller avoids both of these issues: the control sticks are responsive to even slight movements, and the delay is much less noticeable. That makes it much easier to control the Bebop 2 when flying both fast and slow, either maneuvering when navigating an obstacle or doing a slow pass for a better looking video. Other features are mapped onto buttons on the Skycontroller, with buttons for return home and land, start and stop video and other functions. The Skycontroller certainly feels comfortable in the hands, but I didn’t find it any more comfortable than the much smaller controllers of the Yuneec Q500 or the DJU Phantom 3.

Autonomous Flying

The Bebop 2 doesn’t offer a true autonomous mode out of the box, but you can add this with the $19.99 purchase of the FlightPlan in-app feature. This turns the Bebop 2 into an autonomous drone that can follow a GPS defined flight plan, moving from waypoint to waypoint and doing things like taking photos or video, rotating and tilting to pre-defined angles or pausing.

Flightplans can be saved, named and replayed with a single tap. This certainly adds a new angle to the Bebop 2: you could, for instance, create a very unusual timelapse of a building project from above by creating a flight plan that involves flying to a certain point above the site and taking a photo, then running it once a day. Some caution is required, though: the Bebop 2 will happily fly straight into a tree or other obstacle if you aren’t cautions about the path between the waypoints, and will also fly out of signal range.

While a flight plan is running and you are connected, you can intervene and stop it, but not when it is too far away to control. You also can’t record and play back a flight that you made, even though the FreeFlight app automatically records the details of your flights and stores them online. This seems like an odd omission: often the best way to create a safe flight path is to fly it manually, record it and then play it back, and similar apps for drones like the Yuneec Q500 and DJI Phantom 3 allow this.

Photos And Video

We were impressed with the quality of the video from the Bebop, and the Bebop 2 continues this trend. Video is captured at Full HD (1920 by 1080 pixel) resolution at 30 frames per second and has good color and smooth movement. There is some fairly obvious processing from the digital stabilization that the Bebop does, though: straight lines and edges have a rather abrupt stair-step look to them, especially high-contrast ones. Apart from this, the digital stabilization works extremely well: the pans and tilts that the quadcopter makes are mostly not visible in the final video, which has a very smooth and natural look to it. This is even the case in situations such as the Bebop 2 being buffeted by the wind: the video still looks like it was shot from a steady platform. The camera built into the Bebop 2 can also capture 14-megapixel still images, either using the same stabilization as video, or without this as fish-eye images that capture a 170 degree field of view.

This wide-angle lens does have a cost, though: it is rather prone to picking up lens flares that can make your video look like a JJ Abrams film and detract from the overall quality. Lens flares are caused when light enters the lens at an angle and reflects off the elements of the lens, and fish-eye lenses are very prone to this, because the wide view of the lens means that the lens is often at an angle to catch the light.

The video that the Bebop 2 captures doesn’t have the sharpness and clarity that made the DJI Phantom 3 out top pick for video drone, though. Although it is smooth and has decent detail, it lacks the punch and depth of color that the Phantom had, and the stairpatepping from the digital stabilization is very disconcerting when you notice it.

Photos and videos are captured on the 8GB of flash memory built into the device, then transferred wirelessly to the FreeFlight app, or through a USB cable that plugs into the back of the Bebop 2. 8GB is enough to hold about 50 minutes of video, so even the most ardent aerial videographers shouldn’t run out of space. Videos are stored as MP4 files, which can be imported into most video editing apps, such as iMovie.

Repairability

The Bebop was a very easy to repair drone, and the Bebop 2 continues this: any part of the drone can be easily swapped out and replaced. The rotor blades are easy to remove with the included tool, and a replacement set of 4 costs $13. The feet of the drone can also be swapped out and replaced if they get broken, with a new set costing $13.

Battery Life

The battery is one of the main updates from the Bebop. While the original model had a 1200 mAh battery that provided a flight time of about 9 minutes, the Bebop 2 has a bigger 2700 mAh battery that lasts a claimed 25 minutes of flight. We found that this claim was pretty much spot-on: we were able to get about 23 minutes of flight time out of the included battery, which is a huge improvement over the 10 minutes we got from the original Bebop. This means longer shots, and more time to think about and frame the shot you want without worrying about the battery.

The same battery is used in the Skycontroller Black, and a spare battery will cost you $55. That’s not cheap, but the extra flight time the bigger battery gives makes it easier to bear.

However, owners of the original Bebop are out of luck: the batteries that came with this are not compatible with the Bebop 2, as they new batteries are larger, heavier and have a different connector. These new batteries also take a long time to recharge: each battery took about 70 minutes to recharge with the included charger, which can only recharge one battery at a time.

The kit we tested isn’t cheap: Parrot sent us the Bebop 2, the Skycontroller and a Parrot-branded backpack that neatly holds everything, a combination that retails for a heady $800. You’ll pay about $550 for the Bebop 2 without the extras. That’s a lot when you can pick up a video recording drone like the UDI U8171A for less than $50, but the Bebop 2 captures much better photos and video, is easier for novices to fly and has some serious performance chops.

There is an awful lot to like in the Parrot Bebop 2. It is a simple, fun to fly drone that takes great quality video without much fuss. It automates the tricky parts of flying (takeoff and landing) and handles breezes without a problem. The longer battery life also makes it more enjoyable, providing time to get comfortable with the controls and take video and photos without worry. The touch-screen controls are a little quirky, though, and the optional SkyController Black is very large and bulky: while you could throw the Bebop 2 itself into a backpack to take video on a day hike and leave room for lunch, the SkyController would take up most of the backpack alone. This aside, the Bebop 2 is a great update to the Bebop and remains the go-to drone for those who want simple flying and great-looking video.

Review: Parrot Bebop 2

The Parrot Bebop 2 is the best drone you can buy for under $300. With the Bebop 2, you get a pretty serious machine. It has a 25-minute flight time, 2,000-meter range, and a 14 MP camera. The wide angle lens and electronic image stabilization of the Bebop 2 are impressive. This is an excellent beginner drone for anyone looking to get into aerial photography. It is surprisingly quiet but still powerful. The camera has the most impressive electronic image stabilization that I have ever tested. While it may not be quite as nice as the new Parrot Anafi, at half the price of the Anafi, the Bebop 2 it is a heck of a deal.

The Bebop 2 Camera

The camera on the Bebop 2 has an impressively wide field of view that allows you to tilt and pan the camera angle electronically as if it were on a mechanical gimbal. The electronic image stabilization is the best I have ever tested. It will even stabilize the drone if it rolls completely upside down. The pictures are better than most drones in this price range and the HD video is solid, but limited to 720 resolution. If you want better footage than the Bebop can offer then you will need to fork out a few more dollars for the DJI Spark.

The Parrot Bebop 2 is a dual-GPS drone. That makes it a very stable drone and adds intelligent flight modes like return-to-home, follow me and waypoints. Unfortunately, some of these modes require an in-app purchase. For some reason, Parrot doesn’t include all of their modes for free with their top-of-the-line drones. That is a mistake in my opinion.

Overall, this drone is a winner. It is lightweight yet powerful. With a top speed of 40 mph, this drone can really move. I would highly recommend the FPV package, you’ll get the Skycontroller and headset to go with your Bebop 2. The Skycontroller adds both feel and precision to the control and extends the range of the drone significantly. The FPV headset allows you to see your drone’s view on a glare-free screen that feels more immersive than when viewing your phone when it is mounted to the remote.

There really isn’t a competitor to the Bebop 2 under $300. The closest thing is the DJI Spark, but that drone typically is $100 more. The Spark is a superior drone in many regards. I prefer the Spark’s smaller size, camera, and mechanical two-axis gimbal. The Bebop does still have the Spark beat when it comes to flight time by a solid 11 minutes. When it comes to finding a drone for less than $300 the Parrot Bebop 2 is the way to go. However, if you can stretch your budget to $400 I would recommend going with the DJI Spark. The camera and compact size are important enough to make the Spark worth the higher cost.

Parrot Bebop Drone vs AR.Drone 2: What’s Changed?

Parrot’s hanger of drones is getting bigger, with the new Bebop Drone joining rather than replacing the AR.Drone 2. The new model flies further, promises to shoot better quality video, and has a smarter autopilot on-board, but it’s also going to cost more than the AR.Drone 2 it will sit alongside on store shelves. So, will it be worth the upgrade?

The AR.Drone range is now in its second generation, with the AR.Drone 2 – revealed all the way back in 2012 – being easier to fly than its predecessor, as well as stepping up to 720p video. A GPS upgrade in 2013 made it smarter, too.

It also plays nicely with a range of controllers, as we saw with its NVIDIA SHIELD integration.

Size and Construction

Bebop is smaller than the AR.Drone 2, helped by a much more compact “hull” for safer flight indoors and when near people. The AR.Drone 2 measures in at 45 x 45 cm without its hull (57 x 57 cm with it in place), versus a considerably more compact 32 x 28 cm for the Bebop drone (38 x 33 cm with the hull).

That makes for a smaller, lighter, more nimble drone, particularly useful when indoors. Both use a glass fiber reinforced ABS structure, with EPP hulls; the Bebop’s bumpers are easier to attach and detach, however, simply clipping onto the motor hubs.

We’ve seen the Bebop Drone take some seriously rough landings without breaking, but as with any consumer drone there’s always the chance that poor or unlucky piloting could lead to damages. Parrot has updated the motor and propeller mounts to allow for easier repairs on the new drone.

Flying Smarts

As any true R/C helicopter owner will tell you, flying them can be devilishly tricky. Parrot and other consumer drone companies have tackled that by building in complex autopilot systems, so that both the AR.Drone 2 and the Bebop Drone can tackle things like takeoff, landing, and stabilization even in windy conditions by themselves.

Each has a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis magnetometer, as well as an ultrasound sensor, pressure sensor, and a vertical camera which can track ground-speed based on movement underneath the drone.

The AR.Drone 2’s GPS Flight Recorder – which plugs into the drone’s USB port – adds GPS, but the Bebop has GPS/GLONASS/GALILEO baked in, for more accurately following preset courses (including the pilot specifying which way the drone should be facing at each point) and returning not only to the point of takeoff, but where the pilot is currently.

All that requires extra processing, so Parrot has upgraded the Bebop’s brain, too. It has a dualcore ARM A9 processor, with a GPU and proprietary Image Signal Processor. In contrast, the AR.Drone 2 makes do with a single-core A8.

Controller Cleverness

Parrot’s usual method of control is via its iOS or Android apps, which show a live video feed from the drone’s camera, and allow the pilot to adjust movement in all directions as well as trigger auto-takeoff/landing, and snap photos or begin video recording. The same app can also be used to set autopilot courses.

Where the models differ is in WiFi range. The AR.Drone 2 has WiFi b/g/n for a claimed range of just 200 feet with line-of-sight; if it wanders outside of that, it’ll automatically try to return home.

In contrast, the Bebop Drone has WiFi 802.11ac with a quad MIMO antenna array and pilot-selectable 2.4/5GHz support, a much more powerful system. Parrot says that’s good for up to 525 feet of range with line-of-sight, controller device depending.

If that’s still not enough for you, Parrot has a new Skycontroller: effectively a massive, boosted WiFi antenna array that, at 36dBm,nudges up against the legal limits for wireless strength, the company tells us. With it, the Bebop Drone can fly up to 2km (1.24 miles) away and still be under control, with a mount for an iPad or smartphone in the middle, and traditional joysticks for easier piloting.

The Skycontroller also opens the door to things like Oculus Rift integration, since it has an HDMI output. That should, in theory, work with other VR headsets like Epson’s Moverio BT-200, the previous version of which we’ve already seen controlling the AR.Drone 2.

Since there’s still some lag between the video feed and what the drone is actually doing, the Moverio’s transparent displays might be an even safer bet than Oculus’ headset, since you’ll be able to simultaneously see both the Bebop’s view and what’s happening around you.

Cameras

Parrot is positioning the Bebop Drone as a videography tool, and it introduces a significant step up in picture quality versus the AR.Drone 2. The second-gen model can record 720p to the GPS dongle’s 4GB of internal storage (assuming it’s installed); in contrast, the Bebop has 8GB of storage and records 1080p.

That’s not the only improvement, however. Recent camera drones, like DJI’s Phantom 2 Vision+, have increasingly put their cameras on an independently controlled mount, and like them the Bebop Drone’s video perspective can be adjusted. Parrot, however, does it with no moving parts.

Instead, it uses a hefty 14-megapixel camera sensor paired with a 180-degree fisheye lens. A 1080p clip is only a small subsection of that overall frame, so by adjusting the crop, Parrot can give the impression of a moving camera while also feeding the video through digital image stabilization and correcting for Earth curvature. It’s an impressive approach, capable of looking to the side of the drone, as well as up at the sky and down at the ground, without the Bebop physically moving at all.

Which is right for you?

If you’re serious about remote-control video, there’s no question: the Bebop Drone’s upgraded videography system is far more flexible than anything its Parrot predecessors can manage. The combination of Full HD stabilized footage and independent panning is a marked step up.

Range is better, too, and the more compact drone proved a little easier for us to fly – particularly indoors – than the AR.Drone 2. Of course, with the GPS Flight Recorder option, the older model is still pretty accurate and gets the auto-piloting system, so that’s less of a differentiator.

The biggest issue will be price. Parrot hasn’t confirmed exactly how much the Bebop Drone will cost, though a source at the company suggested to SlashGear that it would be 2-3x the price of the AR.Drone 2, which will remain on sale. That would put it somewhere in the region of $600-900 (in contrast, the Phantom 2 Vision+ is $1,299) though without the range-boosting Skycontroller.

In short, if you’re looking for a fun drone diversion, the AR.Drone 2 may still be the most cost-effective way to get it. Anyone looking to do legitimate flying videography, however, should start saving up for the Bebop Drone’s release in Q4 this year.
