Till this date, this device is one of the best and most affordable drones. I used the previous version of this drone so just lets see which one is better and does Parrot Bebop Drone is a worthy investment.


Introduction – Specs


As I said parrot ar drone bebop is the smaller, lighter and infinitely more powerful than Parrot’s AR.Drone 2.0.

Parrot Bebop Drone has four powerful rotors, which can be partially covered by a pair of foam hulls. Its curved back is made up of, in part, a slightly larger battery, which lasts slightly less time than the AR.Drone’s. According to Parrot, you get about 11 minutes flight time per charge.

When compared to its predecessor the camera is a step-up from the one found on its previous models like the AR.Drone 2.0, with an f2.2 fish-eye lens with a 180-degree angle of view and a 14-megapixel sensor.

It can capture video at 1080p full-HD resolution; the AR.Drone 2.0 is limited to 720p. Video is recorded to the Bebop’s 8GB of internal storage (there’s no micrThe Parrot Bebop Drone Review.oS
D or SD card slot) in MP4 format. Photos can be captured in JPEGs or Adobe DNG raw format.

Parrot takes advantage of the extra resolution to let you digitally pan and zoom your picture as well as stabilize your shots on three axes. Though this might not be as good a solution as putting the camera on a gimbal, it likely allows Parrot to cut costs and keep the Bebop light — its maximum weight is 410 grams (14.5 ounces) — and compact. It measures roughly 12 inches (28cm) square and 1.5 inches (3.6cm) tall.


Parrot Bebop Drone tutorial – getting started


Parot Bebop works with Parrot’s FreeFlight app for piloting the drone as well as controlling the camera, and viewing videos and photos from a smartphone or tablet (Android, Windows Phone and iOS are supported). The great thing is that using the Bebop’s GNSS chipset, you will have the possibility to set waypoints and create a flight plan for the drone allowing for completely autonomous flight.

In terms of physical controller Parrot has the Skycontroller. Skycontroller comes with two sticks for piloting; discrete controls for the camera; a button for taking off and landing and one for emergency motor cutoff; status lights for the battery of the Bebop and the controller; a return-to-home button; and you can wirelessly pair a tablet or phone with it for first-person-view (FPV) flying.

You can fly Bebop with both the Sky Controller and through the FreeFlight 3 app. When I used it, I definitely found it more responsive and easier to control than most of the other Parrot models. I never made a mistake, meaning I never hit a wall or get crashed, even though I was flying very fast. Be aware that the drone is relatively loud. But, most of the Parrot’s drones are, so this is not a big surprise, and it is definitely not something that will bother you. Bellow check my pros and cons list of this drone.


  • Light and fast
  • Great camera, 1080p, various angles
  • Well-constructed
  • Quality built material
  • Flawless design
  • Amazing control of the drone
  • Great, highly functional apps
  • Neat controller


    • Battery life is limited to 11 minutes
    • It is relatively loud, when compared to other drones




Parrot Bebop Drone is an amazing device, powerful enough to create a lot of fun and, perhaps cause a bit of trouble, cause by somewhat careless flying around. I can easily say that this drone is easy to navigate, it has great camera, it is light and it has flawless design.

    I noticed that the battery life is only 11 minutes. Is that pretty standard for drones, cuz that seems pretty short. I’d probably want to get something with a little bit more life so I don’t have to recharge the batteries so often.

    Also, what’s the range on the Parrot Beebop? I’m also curious how this compares to other drones in its class.

      Hello Nathaniell, the duration of the Parrot Bebop Drone battery, the flight time walking around the 11 minutes, it really is not much time, today there are other brands that offer about 25 minutes for each battery.The good news is that, currently Parrot is offering another battery, making a total of 22 minutes, which is already not too bad.
      Nowadays many people are buying some additional batteries to extend the flight time, of course it depends on the budget of each one.
      About the range it depends.for example acquiring bebop drone without remote control “Skycontroller” by connecting the device to a tablet or a smarthphone via Freeflight3 app, you will have a range up to 250 meters.
      If you purchase with Skycontroller, the range goes up to 2 Km.
      Hope that help you.
      Thanks for your comment.

    How do you download the information from the drone to a computer or smartphone. Your article states it does not have removable memory storage.

    1. Emanuel Post author

      Hi John,
      You can retrieve your videos and photos directly on your smartphone or tablet via Wi-fi. For this, go in the the contextual menu of the application FREEFLIGHT and click on internal memory. Select the videos you wish to keep and click on “Transfer” to add them to the gallery. The internal memory has a capacity of 8 gigs, so think to systematically get rid of unwanted footage after the transfer. For this, select the footage you wish to erase and click on “erase.” You can also either retrieve or erase material by connecting your Parrot bebop drone to your computer directly with the micro-USB cable provided. To perform this operation, the Parrot Bebop drone’s battery must be installed and the drone must be turned on.
      Hope that help you.
      Thanks for your comment.
