Bebop Drone 2
Quality Construction: The Bebop Drone 2 features glass fiber reinforced
(15%) ABS and foam construction. Its feather-weight ABS reinforced structure
Parrot Bebop Drone 2 robust and safe. It uses four brushless out-runner motors for
the propellers. The four 3-blade auto-block propellers are made of
polycarbonate. The Bebop Drone 2 is also fitted with anti-vibration bumpers on
the feet for safe landings.
Advanced Processors: The Bebop Drone 2 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.
MIMO Dual-Band WiFi Connectivity: The Parrot Bebop Drone 2
features built-in dual-band WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and is fitted with dual
dipolar antennas allowing it to handle both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz MIMO frequencies.
With built-in WiFi and transmission power of 21dBm, it can generate its own WiFi
802.11 network up to 984' (300 meters). Depending on the network interference,
you can select the frequency of your choice.
Flying: The Parrot Bebop Drone 2 can ha a maximum horizontal
speed of 18 m/s and max climb spped of 6 m/s. This speed may vary according to the tilt angle of the Parrot Bebop Drone 2, the outside conditions and flight and flying configurations. You can fly
the Parrot Bebop Drone 2 in wind speeds up to 24mph (40 km/h). You can fly the
Parrot Bebop Drone 2 over dry, flat and lit surfaces. Parrot recommends not to fly
the Parrot Bebop Drone 2 above water. You can fly the Parrot Bebop Drone 2 at
altitudes no greater than 2500m. Beyond this altitude, the air density distorts
the stabilization of the Parrot Bebop Drone 2. A rear flashing LED provides
better visibility of the drone at long distances, so you can tell its direction
Note: The Bebop can be flown indoors or outdoors.
3-Axis Stabilizing System: Using algorithms developed by Parrot
engineers, the Bebop Drone 2 relies on an exclusive 3-axis
image stabilizing system. Filming remains stable, however far the drone leans
over, adjusting for any turbulence. To ensure optimum stability without
compromising easy handling, the Bebop Drone 2 merges data from many 3-axe sensors
- an accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. An ultrasound sensor with a
range of 5m, a pressure sensor, and a vertical camera measure ground speed.
GNNS Chipset: The Bebop Drone 2 integrates a GNSS chipset that associates the GPS + GLONASS
data. Plan your flights on your smartphone/tablet via the FreeFlight Pro App by
touching waypoints on your screen and let the drone do the rest. 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 even able to replay your flights modeled in 3D on the Parrot
Emergency Mode: In case there is a problem such a risk of
collision, the drone going out your sight, loss of control, the Emergency Button
of the app allows you turn off the engines immediately to land the drone. In the event of any collision, the propellers stop automatically.
Return Home: Thanks to a GPS system, a Return Home function brings the
Bebop Drone 2 easily back to its take-off point. When "Return Home" is
selected, the Bebop Drone 2 returns directly to its starting position when the
altitude is greater than 10 meters. If the altitude is less or equal to 32.8' (10
meters), it will rise and stabilize itself at 32.8' (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 6.5' (2 meters) above the ground.
14 MP Fisheye Camera w/ Digital Image Stabilization: The Bebop's camera is equipped
with a bright "fisheye" lens with 6 optical elements, plus a 14 Mega-pixel 1/2.3"
sensor. The neutral angle of the camera allows you to capture more ground and
less sky. The Parrot Bebop Drone 2 records videos and pictures in a 180° field with
remarkable image quality. The full HD camera is digitally stabilized on 3-axes.
This full-digital image stabilization technology allows the Bebop Drone 2 to take
remarkably stable and clear aerial footage regardless of the drone movements.
You'll get undistorted images and a horizon that is not curved. The lens is
splash and dust proof.
