How easy is this drone to fly?
The Bebop drone is one of the easiest drones on the market to fly. Using the downloadable FreeFlight 3 app it is fully controllable up to 300m in the air, and you can record to the internal memory and onto a microSD card if you require more space. If you lose sight of your drone, you can press the return to home button and the drone will return to the starting position.

How does the return to home function work?
When you press the return to home button on the app, your drone will fly back to the starting position using GPS, at a minimum height of 10m. It will continue to hover at 2m until you land it. This function is perfect if you have lost sight of the drone and wish to retrieve it.

What sort of performance will I see out of this drone?
This drone has a maximum speed of 13m/s which is the equivalent of 29mph. The two 1200mAh LiPo batteries give you a maximum flight time of 22 minutes and will ensure you have enough time to have fun and get some great action shots.

Safe flying is your responsibility
We fully encourage safe and responsible flying. We recommend you read the CAA’s/IAA’s website and The Drone Code for full information on safe and responsible flying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've had my Bebop for a few weeks now after having the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 for over a year. I must say I absolutely love it! Like James says ignore the reviews about the battery connector as it's simple, pull the string to release the connector. I am getting around 11 minutes flight time out of my batteries and with two batteries included in the kit that allows plenty of flying time. As I said, I had the Drone 2.0 before so am well used to flying but the Bebop is lightening fast and I would recommend turning all setting down and putting a height limit on of 3-5mtrs until you are well used to it. The camera is mega!! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great action camera Just got a hold of the Parrot Bebop, simpy love it. The video streaming is great, especially when you have on your iPad. digital stabilitsation of the camera works well and proivdes cristal clear recording. i am still learning how to handle it with care as i realise that you cannot act as "Maverick" on his F14 out of the box.... my best advise is to gradually gain confidence on piloting the Bebop. i am serously consedreing getting teh Skycontroller. gret product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it,love it I don't normally write reviews but I needed for this. The Bebop (funny name :-) ) was brought as a present by my wonderful girlfriend after many heavy hints, It has turned a 40 year old into a teenager. I love it to bits!!!!!! it is cheaper than the other Quads of this tech and a hell of a lot easier to fly even for someone like me. The camera is great and the design is so cool,my mates want one now, I might charge them to play with it :-). I'm a fan of Parrot and have their headphones too. Yes its not perfect but nothing is but I know from the headphones there will be updates and the support is great, they listen to you. The complaints about the battery connector are silly, they need to read the full user guide, yes I am one of those strange men that read them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic...PARROT BEBOP!!! Guys I have a few days this fantastic drone of Parrot, the Bebop Drone. I had in the past is the AR.Drone 1.0 is a 2.0 ... and I must say that the Parrot with Bebop was exceeded. It has perfect control thanks to the various sensors and integrating the dual core processor that is the real brains of this fantastic Drone. The duration is approximately 11 minutes and provided there are two, then quietly exceed the 20 minutes of fun. I tried it in the mountains in the open and I used the Skycontroller and the range is truly remarkable. I recorded movies thanks to the stunning 14 Megapixel sensor ... and made remarkable photo ... I personally sent about 1km and I have not had any problems in check. I also tested the function Come back home ... and it was like a dog that returns from the young master ... AWESOME !!! I would highly recommend is an incredible gaming experience ... it works great ... the response to commands is absolute ... and the fun is guaranteed !!! Good flights to all of you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic little drone Amazing little drone, I had the AR 2.0 before this and it's a massive improvement in stability and general build quality. Also nice that it comes with a 2nd battery. The video quality is exceptional, I have used a few other drones and camera systems and all others in this price range suffer from rolling shutter effect on the video, but not this little beastly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Bebop Received my Bebop as a gift over Christmas and to my surprise it is very user friendly. The camera quality to my surprise is very clear and the stability whilst recording is great. I got a battery life of approximately 12 minutes which i think is a decent amount of time considering all that is running. Definately would recommend to friends and family.

Does the Bebop come with the two hand control unit, or is that an extra to the claimed cost of the drone.

Asked by: Jim C
Since asking this question I have been informed that the hand controls are an extra cost. Both the drone and the hand controls can be purchased together or separately.
