Introducing Parrot Bebop 2: Your flying companion!

COVER

Parrot, expert and pioneer in consumer drones, unveils the Bebop 2, a new generation leisure quadricopter with unbridled performances.

True technical prowess, Bebop 2 is compact, robust, stable and very light (500 gr). Equipped with the latest generation of sensors and technologies, it posts 25 minutes of flying time with no equivalent! 

Powerful with impressive stability and maneuverability even in extreme conditions, Bebop 2 offers very easy-to-use piloting via Wi-Fi with a smartphone or a tablet.

CAMERA2

 

Its embedded fish-eye camera digitally stabilized on a 3-axis framework, takes Full HD videos with perfect flow and impressive brightness.

SKYCONTROLLER_

Bebop 2 is compatible with Skycontroller Black Edition, an optional RC-like controller providing an extended flight range (up to 2km*).

When flying becomes a child's play

Bebop 2 is piloted very easily and with no learning via the FreeFlight 3 App for smartphone and tablet. Unboxed, it is immediately ready for adventure!

tablet

Tilting the piloting device indicates the direction (forward, backward, left, right), the Bebop 2 follows with precision. When the “landing” button is touched, the drone automatically lands smoothly, whatever its altitude.

During flight, Bebop 2 offers remarkable stability and maneuverability, even in tough conditions thanks to an autopilot unlike any on the market.

Data collected by seven sensors are analyzed and merged thanks to the impressive calculation capability of its onboard computer (dual-core processor with CPU quad-core):

explosed view

Œ1 – A vertical stabilization camera takes an image of the ground every 16 milliseconds and compares it to the previous one to determine the speed of the Bebop 2.

2 – An ultrasound sensor analyzes the flight altitude up to 16 feet, completed by a pressure sensor up to that level.

Ž3 – A pressure sensor measures air pressure and analyzes fight altitude beyond 16 feet.

4 – 3-axis gyroscope measures the bank angle of the drone.

5 – Accelerometer measures the positioning of the drone on 3 axes and its linear speed.

‘6 – 3-axis magnetometer helps define the position of the drone, like a compass.

’7 – Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) chipset (GPS + GLONASS) geo-localize the drone and help measure the speed in order to stabilize the drone in high altitudes.

Powerful, robust, reliable !

To make Bebop 2 the most advanced leisure drone on the market, Parrot engineers optimized the design of the quadricopter as well as its software and hardware battery components.

The result is that the Bebop 2 is the most efficient drone of 500gr in the market, especially with a flying time of 25 minutes. (Rechargeable lithium-ion 2700 mAh)

On the propulsion side, the four three-blade propellers powered by four brushless outrunner engines offer great maneuverability during high speed flights.

The Bebop 2 achieves bursts of speed of
37 mph horizontally and 13 mph vertically.

It reaches its maximum speed in 14 seconds, brakes in 4.5 seconds and resists head winds up to
39 mph! It reaches an altitude of 328 feet in less than 20 seconds.

 

Technologically reliable and robust

up

Connected in Wi-Fi MIMO (2.4 GHz & 5 GHz) to the piloting Smartphone/tablet, the Bebop 2 has a perfectly stable connection for 984 feet.

In addition, numerous systems reinforce the safety of the flights: emergency cut-out feature of the engines, emergency cut-out feature of the propellers in case of contact, limitation of the altitude and of the flying perimeter, automatic return home feature.

Its glass fiber reinforced (20%) ABS chassis and its shockproof feet ensure high robustness of the structure.

At the back of the machine, an LED enables the pilot to understand the direction of the flight while keeping the drone in sight.

The flying action camera

Bebop 2 integrates a 14 megapixel “fish-eye lens” front facing camera specifically designed for it.

Images are streamed live on the screen of the piloting device.

Pilot can digitally change the angle of the camera by 180° by just sliding a finger on the screen.

It can film or take pictures vertically!

Digitally stabilized on 3-axis thanks to powerful algorithms, images are bright, perfectly stable and without distortion.

Recorded in full HD (1080p) on the 8 GB flash memory of the Bebop 2, videos and photos (16:9; 4:3; fish-eye) can be transferred onto the piloting device or a computer.

Skycontroller Black Edition

sky

Bebop 2 is compatible with Parrot Skycontroller Black Edition, an optional RC-like remote control enables an  extended Wi-Fi range up to 6 561 feet*!

The pilot takes the helm of the drone via two hand controllers equipped with joysticks. The buttons of the controller can be customized to adapt to each profile.

Running on Android, Parrot Skycontroller embeds FreeFlight 3 piloting application, making it possible to connect directly to the Bebop 2 without a smartphone or tablet.

headplay

For an extreme experience, the Skycontroller connects via HDMI with the latest generations of FPV glasses (First Personal View). Acting as a co-pilot, a user can enjoy an immersive view of the flight and see live telemetry information, as if he were seated in the Bebop 2.

 

A “Radar” feature displays on the smartphone/tablet piloting screen or on FPV glasses, the position of the Bebop 2 in relation to the Skycontroller, as well as its direction. Pilot can also see if the drone is flying to the limit of the Wi-Fi signal generated by the Parrot Skycontroller antenna. This will help the pilot to be in alignment with the quadcopter, by following the directions displayed on the screen, to ensure a strong signal connection.

  • James Sanderson

    I have the BEBOP 1 and Sky Controller but very disappointed that the bebop 2 is not compatible with my red Sky Controller. I only bought them a few weeks ago…

    • Road1

      It is compatible with your Skycontroller. That’s what the most recent update was for.

      • James Sanderson

        Yeah! They should change the website description

  • Mike Timko

    Do we know if it will be available in the US at the typical retail locations currently selling it? I have emailed a few…Best Buy, Target, Brookstone, but they did not have any info yet. Not that far away, can’t wait!

    • John

      Dec. 14th

    • auwinger

      My wife checked just now and they said it would be available at Brookstone, Target, and Best Buy; same locations that sold the original drones.

  • dronemaniac

    Will there be any trade in offers that owners of the Bebop Drone one can do?

    Like if we already own the Bebop Drone one can we trade it in for the Bebop Drone two?

    I think this would be very smart and considerate of parrot.

    • NinjaNate2000

      I would 100% do this.

  • Mike Rivest

    If Parrot wishes to stay in the drone market they better cut cut their price. DJI phantom 3 standard is now at USD 550.

    • Alex

      I agree it is rather expensive

    • NinjaNate2000

      Dang! Didn’t know that.

    • dronemaniac

      This one should be priced around the same but the first should have been about $350 it has countless issues.

    • My Nguyen

      The DJI Phantom 3 standard is an old technology of Vision 2+ baptized as a new Phantom 3 series. It still relies on the old US GPS system while the Parrot Bebob 2 is a breakthrough small drone with a 25 mile range and equipped with a dual GPS-GLONASS navigational system.

  • Alex

    So it doesn’t work with the other sky controllers? Only the black edition

    • auwinger

      From what other users have said it works with the Bebop 1 SC.

  • Alex

    I hope they fixed the problem when it flies away for this drone

      that’s the price of the small country!

    • Michael Techboy

      Ripping off UK customers?!? Obviously you are not deep into this hobby at all mate. Reality is simple. Go out and buy yourself a POS hobby drone for a couple of hundred dollars. You’ll find that they are unstable after 20mph winds, do not return to home consistently, forget headless modes… the Chinese suck at it, and will run ~8 minutes or so. After you smash a few of them and have flushed 800.00 USD or so down the drain, you will cry in your piss warm beer when you discover you could have had this machine instead. I have the first generation of the bebop. I can tell you that when you set it into advanced mode? It screams. If you get into trouble… one click of a button on the skycontroller brings it back to you. Want to land? Push a button. Take off? Push a button. Record? Push a button. Set the flight envelope? Push of a button. Sure it’s expensive, but you get what you pay for. So stop being a whining little entitled bitch and either shell out for a superior machine or go back to the Chinese pieces of garbage available to you. Ripped off indeed. What a douchenozzle.

      • Richard Robinson

        You seem to have missed the point of my post. Try spending more time carefully reading than coming up with ill informed insults…
        The price of the Bebop 1 and 2 is significantly higher in the UK than in the rest of Europe or the US. I was comparing costs between countries, not against Chinese tech. And yes I know there are tax and import differentials but there is no justification to charge £320 more for the sky controller vs $250 more in the US.

        • Matt Porter

          I tend to agree with you Richard, a few years ago I complained to the European Commission that Adobe was charging unfair prices to UK customer where they would charge $199 in the US and £199 in the UK at a time when the pound was strong, the EC said that they had no power to set prices. Adobe wrote to me and explained that taxes and duties and distribution were much higher in the UK and hence they had to charge more.

          • Vitor Soares

            and you won more in the UK….

  • Eddie Cohen

    why do they always release the products in france before any other country though?

    • Richard Robinson

      Because Parrot is a French company?

      • dronemaniac

        Exactly

    • My Nguyen

      Salut,
      Je suis Parrot Bebob numéro 2 à votre service le lundi 14 décembre en 2015.
      Vive la France!

  • Tammy

    When will the Bebop 2 be available for purchase in the USA?

    • John

      From what I have heard, Dec. 14th.

    • auwinger

      We just checked and it just became available in US today.

  • NinjaNate2000

    Stuck on original Bebop.. I like it, but it has poor range (~300′) and the battery life sucks…

  • Alex

    For the next bebop that comes out after this it should be waterproof and possibly upgrade the camera and stand even more wind and an even longer battery life and faster speed

    • http://www.straycat.nl Dook

      I can tell you that the Bebop 2 is much beter. I now have the Bebop 2 and at the first flight my Bebop 2 disapperared in the water :-(
      After several minutes I found it, took out the battery and let it dry for 24 hours. Put in the battery, and… the Bebop 2 took of and everything still workshop still great! The Bebop 2 is a increddible Nice piece of machinery and I like it very much. This is my third Bebop, The other 2 Bebops crasht into water and all died…

  • Luke Barnes

    Does anyone know if the original sky-controller will be compatible?I’m thinking about buying one and then when my Bebop dies, just getting the 2 on it’s own. Don’t fancy buying the whole thing twice, but judging by how it specifically mentions “black edition” I’m guessing not. if that’s the case will the black edition work with the original Bebop?

    • Dylan

      Good Afternoon Luke,

      You Can Indeed use your original sky-controller (I believe), the most recent update enabled them to work together!

  • Albert

    Hi, I´d like to buy the new Bebop 2 as soon as possible (before christmas would be awesome). But it is not for sale in Czech Republic yet. Any ideas, when it might get on the central europe market? Thanks for answers:)

  • Panos Kouvaris

    Very nice drone and nice flying experience. It’s what I was looking for. ….. The only problem, after the last update I can’t use the switch to switch off and on. Need to remove the battery and reinstalling it starts automatically. Anyone heard of this issue or may advice for this problem ?… Thanks

  • nexus

    Hi, my battery doesn’t seem to last the 25 minutes mentioned in the description.

    Any hints on how to achieve this?

    Thanks!

  • Matthew Giess

    My experience using the paid for Flight Plan with my new Bebop 2 was for it to turn off the motors mid flight and drop out of the sky and break. Struggling for a response from UK customer services so far to get it resolved. #notlikethepromovideo

  • Paul Hall

    Does anyone know when the BeBop 2 will go on sale in Australia?

  • Michael Lee
  • Nino 0raham

    can this thing follow me mode or not

  • http://www.straycat.nl Dook

    Could anybody tell me how waterproof /resistant the Bebop 2 is? This because Parrot advertises with ‘fly under all cirumstances’.
    This because Bebop 1 is allergic to water.

  • Steve Ghanbari

    i am in Australia , recently i have repurchased a Bebop 2. unfortunately i can’t get parts for it in Australia very disappointed.
    i have been looking every where to see if i can find couple of propeller no one Carrie them in store!!!!
