The Parrot Bebop 2 Drone with SkyController - Red combines the Parrot Bebop 2 Drone with Parrot’s SkyController Black Edition for increased usability of hotly anticipated the drone.
The Parrot Bebop 2 Drone is a Wi-Fi-based, mobile device-operated RC quadcopter capable of taking HD aerial video and 14MP still photos. Avoiding the added weight and power consumption of a motorised gimbal, the camera features an electronic image stabilisation system that relies on a 3-axis motion sensor and a 180° fisheye lens from which it crops a Full HD image. Updates from the original Bebop include a lower camera angle for direct shots of the ground and a larger battery for up to 25 minutes flying time.
The Bebop 2 is controlled from an Android or iOS mobile device running the FreeFlight 3 App. Devices with screens up to 10.6" can be mounted directly to the SkyController Black Edition for FPV monitoring. In addition to letting you control the quadcopter, the app provides a real-time preview from the flight camera, and you can even record a low resolution feed directly on your device. For high-res recording you can use the 8GB of built-in memory.

FreeFlight 3 App-Based Wi-Fi Control
Using standard Wi-Fi, the Bebop 2 is controlled by an iOS or Android smartphone or other mobile device and features a range of up to 300m line-of-sight. You simply need to create an "ad-hoc" connection between the controlling device and the aircraft. No router or other hardware is required. The SkyController system allows the Bebop 2 to be operated from up to 2km⁽¹⁾ away. Antennas are included for 2.4 and 5 GHz, so you can choose the frequency that works best depending on other sources of interference.
Live FPV Monitoring from Mobile Device
The FreeFlight 3 app enables live monitoring of the camera image along with flight telemetry overlay. Using the app's touch interface, you can even digitally pan the image across the camera's 180° field of view.
Dual-Core Flight Computer
At the heart of the flight controller is a Linux-based dual-core CPU with quad-core graphics. It features 8GB of flash memory for video and photo storage.
Compatible with SkyController System
The SkyController Black Edition extends the Bebop Drone's Wi-Fi range up to 2km⁽¹⁾ and features a hardware-based control pad as well as a holder for a tablet. To maximise the first-person flying experience, the SkyController allows you can connect third-party FPV glasses, including the Zeiss Cinemizer, Epson Moverio, and Sony Personal Viewer.
Up to 25 Minutes Flying Time
A larger battery from the original Bebop enables flight times of up to 25 minutes, depending on conditions. This new LiPo battery features a capacity of 2700mAh.
6" Flexible Propellers
Larger propellers from the original Bebop help yield its improved flight performance of 16m/s horizontal and 6m/s vertical top speeds. The propellers are flexible and will lock in the event of contact for enhanced safety.
7-Sensor Stabilisation System
A total of seven sensors are used to keep the Bebop 2 flying steady. These included a vertical optical flow camera, ultrasound, barometer, accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, and GPS. Together they help the drone keep track of where it is in space, allowing it to compensate for overzealous pilot inputs and counteract wind conditions.
GPS Navigation System
Helps aid the flight stabilisation system by providing precise positional data. In addition, automatic return home and landing are possible.
Note: (1) Theoretical distance between Skycontroller Black Edition and Bebop 2 depending on country regulations for Wi-Fi, First-person-view piloting and ground conditions. Please check local regulations and fly responsibly. (2) FPV = First Person View. A list of compatible glasses is available on www.parrot.com. iPad®, iPhone® and FPV glasses not included.
