Introducing Parrot Skycontroller

Skycontroller: fly further, higher

To benefit from a more powerful Wi-Fi connection, Parrot will offer the Skycontroller as an option for Bebop Drone.

Equipped with an amplified Wi-Fi radio and with 4 antennas, the Parrot Skycontroller extend the Wi-FI range. It’s a device, with a very specific Wi-Fi architecture, designed for the Bebop to maximize its reach. It is not compatible with AR.Drones.
The piloting smartphone or tablet is fixed on a shelf that is compatible with the vast majority of the tablets available in the market.
The pilot takes the helm of the drone via 2 joysticks.

Achieve Icarus’ dream !

For extreme sensations, it is possible to connect FPV (First Person View) glasses to the Parrot Skycontroller with the HDMI plug. Then, leaning the head will position the camera of the Bebop Drone!

    is it avaliable with the AR Drone 2.0 Power edition?

  2. Vladimir Savin says:

    wow!!! how soon we can get it?

  3. Adam Hegedus says:

    my question is, is it compatible with the ar.drone?

  4. Tony Antoun says:

    hey parrot please answer is the skycontroller compatible with the ar drone 2.0 ?

  5. Mark Lawler says:

    Please don’t make this iPhone / iPad only. I already purchased an NVidia Shield to control my AR Drone 2.0.

  6. XxBLTxX says:

    Will the Bebop be compatible with the Oculus DK2?

  7. serkan says:

    is ti compatible with the ar drone 2.0 ?

  8. jbienz says:

    What about stereo vision? I only see one camera so I assume this is not possible? This seems to be the biggest gap between this and the community work being done on the DJI platform.

  9. aaron says:

    How much is it

  10. konor says:

    AMIMON is HERE!

  11. Robert Chapman says:

    Nice concept but, I have an ASUS SMART PAD running Window 8.1 OS. If this can run on my pad I am a buyer, if not then I will be forced to go with a different product all togethe – i try to stay away from companies who are solely proprietary in the their outlook on the future – open source compatibility is the only way to fly.Case in point: I own a NOOK and not Kindle, because with the NOOK I can read everything and the KINDLE I am locked in with Amazon only, I can only read on platforms they allow – NOT GOOD..

  12. Rod Gregg says:

    Someone at Parrot should be looking at this blog and answering questions… HELLO?

  13. Xukanik says:

    From what it looks like, it is compatible with Any Tablet/Phone/Device that works with the Parrot software. It just has a WIFI Hotspot like the Parrot that your Device hocks up to the Hotspot and so does the Drone.
    “− Second chipset Wi-Fi to connect to a tablet”
    They do show it working with the Bebop Drone but since the “SkyController” Specs are the same as a 2 year old high end phone. I would not see why it could not work with the 2.0 or even 1.0.
    Heck I do not even see a reason why it would require a tablet in the first place.

  14. thijs quispel says:

    hello parrot i dont know if you can tell evreyone the price?
    but if you can, please tell it.

  15. Peter Ellis says:

    i have the drone 2.0 and got it a year ago and only flew it indoors only become i couldn’t see the screen on my phone out side so if i get this controller il be more confident flying out side. can you tell me when and where can i buy it

  16. Ralph says:

    Good question can i use this fantastic stuff also for ar drone 2.0????

  17. Marc Stinebaugh says:

    This definitely needs 3D display capability, at some point, and haptic feedback in both the controller and anything on your head (Send signal over the HDMI cable).

  18. James Tee says:

    I would consider this only if it was Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 compatible.

  19. Connor Maynard-Nash says:

    The skycontroller should be compatible with all upcoming and future parrot products, id love to get this the bebop and the sumo and use the skycontroller for both!!!

  20. Ed Magrill says:

    Estimated price in the US?

  21. Eric Anderson says:

    When can we buy this?

  22. Clive Long says:

    Oh my god, I’ve wet my pants. Please tell us when and how much. Also as the others are asking will it work with the drone 2. Thanks

  23. maulik sanghrajka says:

    I would like to go for it if it would have a full windows phone / surface compatiblity

  24. antonin says:

    oui

  25. 2easy says:

    it looks like an I pad strapped to his forehead.

  26. john m. says:

    Can you record video?

  27. john m. says:

    Proving that Apple ecosystem has the best, most scalable, robust and secure platform. Unfortunately, building products for Android is extremely expensive and challenging for any company like Parrot due to massive device fragmentation, huge security holes due to open platform.

  28. rodrigo rocha says:

    the AR drones world needs it !

  29. Andy Carswell says:

    Can I buy this at Walmart anytime soon

  30. matthias says:

    Price

  31. martin calame says:

    Bon, j’ai les informations sur les prix, c’est malheureusement pas donné, je prévoyais 100€ de moins.

    Le bebop drone seul est à 499,90€ et monte à 799,90€ pour la version skycontroler.

    Pour plein de raisons différentes, je le prendrai quand même, j’ai toutefois peur que le prix en rebute quelques uns.

  35. Payton says:

  39. Luis R. Schalch says:

    is the skycontroller compatible with the GEAR VR by samsung???

  40. Lap Olice says:

    there it’s some kind of skycontroller for Parrot Jumping Sumo??? i need more wifi range…

  41. paul dempsey says:

    if these gadgets are so great why is the stock tanking?

  42. favau says:

    pourra ton s en servir pour piloter le drone ar 2

  43. Jason Martell says:

    sorry no

  44. Marc Wilson says:

    can you use a smart phone

  45. Connor Maynard-Nash says:

    Is this compatible with other devices such as minidrones?

  46. Paulo Pires says:

    When is avaiable to Portugal ? And the price

  47. Honz Elliott says:

    Wanted to know if Skycontroller will be released for the Holidays 2014 or to expect delivery for 2015. When can we anticipate pre-orders?

  48. therealDW says:

    My fingers are crossed that this thing will be compatible with the Oculus Rift DK2 (Which I have), Android tablets (Which I have) and the Jumping Sumo (Which I plan on buying in the near future).

    I can only imagine how cool it would be to have the level of control the actual remote would offer, and the cool-factor of seeing in first person as your little racer shoots around your house/neighborhood.

  49. Jean-Daniel Belcourt says:

    Will it be compatible with Samsung gear VR?

  50. ExtremeChris says:

    am looking for this piece…and trying to work how to incorporate the features into the Drone 2. Hopeful the battery should be well….equipped, else 20-30 mins flight time, is not sufficient enough.

  51. ExtremeChris says:

    having self sustaining….”solar panel”…should be able to allow us longer ride time. =) Battery is always the source of all hobbies.

  52. Massimo Gajo says:

    Hi, I have just a question: is it possible to buy the Skycontrolleor aftermarket, I mean, separately from the Bebop?

    Tks.

  53. Christopher Hibbert says:

    Parrot question for you can it be controled by android devices

  54. Piotr says:

    Hi. Are you plan to implement auto-follow mode ?

  55. Craig Pinks says:

    It only says android so does that mean I can’t use my iPad with it? Please help been looking everywhere for the answer

  56. Oscar Alvarez says:

  57. Jake Schmitt says:

    Hello Parrot,

    Will the Sky Controller be able to be bought separately? Also, how much will it cost?

  58. Pascal says:

    hey everyone, i asked this already somewhere else but i am an impatient guy. does someone know when the Parrot Bebop will be available in germany?

  59. ed yoder says:

  60. Michael Morgan-Davies says:

    hi parrot is it possible to by the skycontroller separately to the drone?

  61. damien GERDES says:

    damien GERDES • a minute ago
    J’habite à côté de Strasbourg et toujours pas l’ombre d’un bebop bleu avec sky… Nous sommes le 6 janvier, c’est lamentable pour une boîte française….qui livre d’autres pays en priorité.
    Introuvable à la Fnac : “vous pouvez le commander, mais Parrot ne communique pas sur les délais, ça peut mettre plusieurs semaines”, introuvable chez Boulanger et chez Darty qui n’en ont même pas vu l’emballage.
    Alors c’est bien joli d’en parler à tout le monde depuis mai si on arrive même pas à le livrer pour Noël !
    Pffff………

  63. kurk says:

    It was impossible to connect the Skycontroller and Bepop, no signal tone. Skycontoller’s wifi was not detected in IPad. I’d like to try to re-install software,
    but which type of USB connectors should be used? Normal USB or micro USB?

  64. Mark says:

    Hi I see all the questions regarding the compatibility with AR Drone 2.0 and Parrot’s answer. So the next questions is with it work with the Mariner waterproof quadcopter/ drone ?

  65. Jeroen Bults says:

    Where can I buy the Skycontroller without the Bebop Drone?

  66. jason says:

    Can the skycontroller be sold separately?

    • Parrot says:

      For the moment, the Skycontroller can only be purchased as a bundle with the Bebop Drone.

      • jason says:

        but when would it be able to be sold separately? Because I forgot to buy it and I only have the BEBOP and I’m also not impressed with it’s range.

        • Grandpa Jake says:

          Hi Jason, I noticed your message to Parrot and wanted to say I hope you can buy this separately at some point. It really enhances the flying and you will be very excited once you have it. Parrot has been good at coming through with things in the past so cross your fingers. Enjoy
          Grandpa Jake

      • Jack Callahan says:

        Can you buy a used SC and pair it with a bebop?

      • Alex says:

        when will it be able to be bought separately because I really want the skycontroller but don’t want to spend $900 to get another bebop with the skycontroller please let me know when it could be sold sepreatly.

  67. Massimo Belgrano says:

    is compatible with Samsung gear VR?

  68. samuel imanuel says:

    WHere. Can I buy it without parrot bebop?

    • Alex says:

      I’m pretty sure you can’t I have looked around for 2 months to see if it could and found nothing

  69. Dominic Morris says:

    is there any possible way I could make this work with my AR Drone 2.0 Power Edition? PLEASE?!

    • Parrot says:

      Hi, as the Skycontroller was only designed for the Bebop Drone, it’s not compatible with the AR.Drone.

      • Dominic Morris says:

        Is there anything similar for the AR Drone 2.0 Power Edition? Or anything in the making? Or simply a way to extend the Wi-Fi signal of it?

      • Dominic Morris says:

        Also, do you think you could explain why it is not compatible? Is it the hardware of the AR Drone? Or the software of the app itself?

      • Taotao Li says:

        我在哪里可以买到一个单独的 skycontroller

  70. handell says:

    when the parrot beebop runs into something , it just shuts off and drops. is there a way to disable this feature?

  71. Frederic Schmid says:

    Does anybody know if you can buy it seperatly?

  72. Tanya says:

    How do I do flips with the Skycontroller with my phone attached? When double tapping my phone (with Skycontroller), the drone does not flip. Please help.

  73. The Ryan Ranch says:

    Cmon Parrot, hurry up and sell the Skycontroller separately, before your competition does….. duh !!

  74. Alex says:

    Skycontroller should be sell individual as well. So it will be good for some people who want to upgrade their own bebop drone. I don’t really understand how parrot marketing thinking.

  75. John Humphreys says:

    when is this going to be sold on its own for people who already have the bebop drone?

  76. Rawjek Johns says:

    CAN YOU PURCHASE THIS SEPERATE? IF SO WHERE?

    • Parrot says:

      Hello, for the moment, the Skycontroller is only available as a bundle with the Bebop Drone.

      • Bob Boyd says:

        Do you have any ETA on when this can be purchased separately? I contacted Parrot 4 months ago and the customer rep said that more information would be available soon. I purchased the Bebop as soon as it came out, and would really like to be able to use it more extensively.

      • Alex says:

        when will it be available to be bought separately?

  77. Dawid says:

  79. Daniel says:

  80. Napatara Athakravi says:

    Will it be sold seperately from the pack

  81. Napatara Athakravi says:

    Parrot you really should sell the skycontroller seperately because people are begging for it to be sold separately

  82. Napatara Athakravi says:

    I might move to the DJI phantom 3 professional 4k if parrot still wouldn’t sell the skycontroller seperately

  83. Valentiin Rainer says:

    when will we be able to buy just the skycontroller?

  84. Craig Cameron says:

    Where can you buy a skycontroller on its own? and when will freeflight be updated to program flight paths. I could do this with my AR drone 2.0 last year and the bebop is supposed to be more advanced??

  85. ROBERTO MAGANA says:

    I have the Bebop Drone and have been waiting a long time for the Skycontroller to become available for sale (by itself, not as a combo). Where can I buy the Skycontroller and other additions to the Bebop Drone?

I really want the skycontroller, but due to financial circumstances i will have to buy the controller later on.
