New Bebop Drone from Parrot

From the makers of the popular quadricopters like the AR Drone 2.0, and the MiniDrone Rolling Spider comes a new release: the new Bebop Drone from Parrot. This new Bebop Drone can be a great edition to add to the collection of avid drone hobbyists, or anyone into aerial photo services.

Parrot is back with a more sophisticated, $500 drone called the Bebop. Its computer, Parrot says, has eight times the power of its predecessor, and its sensors now include “a 3-axes accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, one ultrasound sensor with an 8 meters reach, one pressure sensor and a vertical camera.” Read more here:

Unveiled on Tuesday in New York City, the Bebop drone is smaller, lighter and infinitely more powerful than Parrot’s AR.Drone 2.0 It does have at least one thing in common with the previous drone. Both use ad-hoc Wi-Fi connections to talk to a tablet-based control app. Beyond that, though, Bebop is a very different animal. It’s $499 ($200 more than the AR.Drone). The body only marginally resembles AR.Drone. It still 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.

However, even with 11 minutes flight time per charge, the Bebop Drone ” thanks to GPS it will be able to find its way home. And with interchangeable batteries, you’ll be able to send it right back out again.” See here:
