Parrot Bebop 2 – Red

The Bebop is almost the perfect starter drone: lightweight, low cost, and a good enough camera. In my testing, the Bebop 2 suffers from the same critical flaw as its predecessor: a very unreliable Wi-Fi connection that frequently drops, leaving your drone stranded in mid-air. That makes it really hard to recommend, even for a novice drone pilot.

Meet Bebop 2, a second-generation Parrot Quadcopter Drone. In its weight class to surpass 20 minutes of autonomous flight time, this sleek and durable drone doesn’t just travel far, it travels well. The 3-axis digital stabilization offers pilots a fixed angle of the view, regardless of altitude or turbulence.

The body seems otherwise virtually identical to its predecessor, although the rotors have now been color coded to make it a little easier to remember where each one goes. On its own, without the optional remote control and Wi-Fi range extender, the Bebop is wonderfully compact and light. Despite its small stature, I found it did a good job of holding its position in strong winds.

Let’s start with the things I like about the Bebop 2. It has double the battery life of the original Bebop, and the battery now locks into place, instead of being poorly secured with a velcro strap.

Parrot's Bebop 2 Drone | First Look

Today Parrot unveiled the Bebop 2, a recreational drone that can stay in the air twice as long as previous version. The 500 gram drone has 25 minutes of flying time, and you control it from your phone, tablet or even a VR headset. You can also purchase the Parrot Skycontroller, which enables extended WiFi range. The Bebop 2 surpasses the first iteration with its speed. It can go 37 miles per hour horizontally and 13 miles per hour vertically. TechCrunch gets some flying time with Parrot's new Bebop 2 drone.
