Built with safety in mind

The feather-weight ABS reinforced structure makes Parrot Bebop Drone robust and safe. In case of emergency, propellers automatically stop . The emergency mode enables the Drone to land immediately. Thanks to GPS, a Return Home function brings the Bebop drone easily back to its take-off point. Finally, EPP hulls are included in the pack and make indoor flights safer.

Heavy weight technology - featherweight design

Parrot Bebop Drone delivers the best performances without sacrificing battery life: 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 electromagnetics shielding and as a radiator. Runs on Linux with SDK available for Developers.

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.

14 megapixels “Fisheye” camera

Equiped with a 14 megapixel "fisheye" camera, the Parrot Bebop Drone records videos and pictures in a 180° field with remarkable image quality. Endowed with a full-digital image stabilization technology allows the Bebop Drone to take remarkably stable and clear aerial footage regardless of the drone movements. Splash and dust proof lens.

Action cameras often show horizontal lines distortion. In contrast, Parrot Bebop Drone camera delivers undistorted lines and as a result horizon is not curved anymore.

Full HD 1080p video with smart 3-axes stabilization

Thanks to algorithms developed by Parrot engineers, the bebop Drone benefits from an exclusive 3-axes image stabilization system that maintains a fixed angle of the view, regardless of the inclination of the drone and its movements caused by wind turbulence.

User-controlled 180° vision

Control the angle of the camera directly from the piloting application with a simple movement of the thumb. The shifting on the 180 angle is fully digital and independant from the drone movements.
