The Parrot Bebop Drone performs to the highest standards, every time. To ensure optimal stability without compromising manoeuvrability, the Bebop Drone automatically analyses data from numerous three-axes sensors — accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. There’s also one ultrasound sensor with eight metres reach, one pressure sensor and a vertical camera to track the speed. Equipped with a 14 megapixel fisheye camera, the Parrot Bebop Drone records videos and pictures in a 180° field with remarkable image quality.
Fly further and higher with Skycontroller
Equipped with an amplified Wi-Fi 36 dBm radio and with four antennas, the Parrot Skycontroller extends the Bebop Drone’s Wi-Fi range and lets the pilot take the helm of the drone via two ultra-precise joysticks. You can also control the orientation of the fisheye camera with one dedicated pad and watch through Bebop’s eyes. Dock and connect your iOS device and sync with your Bebop Drone over Wi-Fi on the FreeFlight 3 app. Skycontroller can also be used as a stand-alone remote control.
