Bebop drone packshot

Built with safety in mind. Its feather-weight ABS reinforced structure (400g) makes Parrot Bebop Drone robust and safe. In the event of any collision, the propellers stop automatically. The emergency mode allows the drone to land immediately. Thanks to a GPS system, a Return Home function brings the Bebop drone easily back to its take-off point. Finally, EPP hulls included in the pack makes indoor flights safer.


Return Home. When “Return Home” is selected, the Bebop Drone returns directly to its starting position when the altitude is greater than 10 meters. If the altitude is less or equal to 10 meters, it will rise and stabilize itself at 10 meters before returning to its take-off position in a straight line. Once it has reached its take-off position, it will stop and hover 2 meters above the ground.

Advanced technology. Parrot Bebop Drone delivers the best performance: 8x times more powerful than Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 onboard computer, Bebop Drone navigation computer features a Parrot P7 dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU and 8 GB of Flash Memory. All are fixed on a magnesium shelf that acts as a radiator and electromagnetic shielding. Runs on Linux with SDK available for Developers.

Parrot Bebop Drone generates its own Wi-Fi hotspot. MIMO Wi-Fi connection: Parrot Bebop Drone embarks 2 dual-band Wi-Fi antennas that allows it to handle both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz MIMO frequencies. It generates its own Wi-Fi 802.11 network. Depending on the network interference, you can select the frequency of your choice.

Easy disassembly. All parts of Bebop Drone are removable for easy assembly and transport. Pilots can focus on flying and capturing incredible images and videos.

Astoundingly stable. To ensure an optimal stability without compromising the maneuverability, the Bebop Drone analyzes data from numerous sensors automatically: 3-axes accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, one ultrasound sensor with an 8 meters reach, one pressure sensor and a vertical camera to track the speed.

Freeflight 3: An ultra intuitive application. The Parrot Bebop Drone comes with a free piloting application, Freeflight 3, for iOS and Android Smartphones and tablets. The user-friendly application has been developed to be very easy to use allowing the pilot to focus on the pleasure of flying. Once on the welcome screen, the pilot accesses the following functionalites: Piloting, photos/videos, Cloud "Pilot Academy"... 

Complete user settings for altitude and speed, piloting mode (accelerometer, virtual joystick...). FreeFlight app also includes fun features such as one-touch Flip! 

FreeFlight 3 is also the piloting app for Parrot MiniDrones.

Pilot to the map with Flight Plan. The Bebop Drone integrates a GNSS chipset that associates the GPS + GLONASS data. Plan your flights on your smartphone/tablet by touching waypoints on your screen and let the drone do the hard part. In addition to increasing the stability in high altitude, it also allows autonomous flights and automatics return to the take-off position. With the recorded data (altitude, speed...), you are able to replay your flights modeled in 3D on the Parrot Academy map. Flight Plan will be made available soon as an in-app purchase in FreeFlight 3.
