Check The Price

The Parrot Bebop 2 is a fast, lightweight drone with an extremely high top speed of more than 37 mph. The Bebop 2 requires just 14 seconds to reach its top speed and needs only four seconds to slow to a halt in midair. With the Parrot Bebop 2, there's no need to purchase a standalone controller. Although a controller is available, you can control the Bebop 2 with nothing but an iOS or Android device.

High-Quality Camera

The built-in camera of the Bebop 2 captures 1080p video and 14 megapixel still images. The camera features automatic image stabilization. Would you like to get an even better view of your flight? Use the Parrot FPV glasses -- available separately -- to get a VR-like view of exactly what your drone sees. You'll feel as though you're actually riding inside your drone as you fly it -- and you'll always have the ability to capture the perfect view of any scene.

Intuitive Mobile Flight App

The Free Flight Pro mobile app for iOS and Android gives you full control over the Bebop 2 drone without the need for a hardware controller. The app makes innovative use of the accelerometer in your phone or tablet -- simply move your device to fly the aircraft. Free Flight Pro supports additional flight modes such as a mode that allows you to have the Bebop 2 automatically follow a moving subject. Unfortunately, the additional flight modes are in-app purchases that are not free.

Other Features

  • Additional accessories: The Bebop 2 includes a battery and charger. It also includes four additional propellers. If a propeller breaks, you can replace it and resume flying.
  • Wind resistance: Thanks to its light weight and powerful motors, the Bebop 2 has the ability to accelerate through wind speeds of up to 37.28 mph.
  • High-resolution camera: Although the Parrot Bebop 2 only supports a maximum video resolution of 1080p, it captures very high-resolution still images. Most other drones feature 4K video cameras. However, a typical drone only has a 12 megapixel resolution for still images. The Bebop 2 has a camera resolution of 14 megapixels, which can help the image quality in low-light situations.
