Parrot Bebop 2 Power Quadcopter
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Excelent product at affordable price.
The Bebop 2 Power lets you immerse yourself in the experience of flight.
The Parrot Bebop 2 has been a real hit with our customers, and we're happy to see the new Bebop 2 Power add to that legacy. It flies farther, faster, and longer than its impressive predecessor.
It comes with the compact, intuitive Skycontroller 2, immersive CockpitGlasses VR goggles, and two rechargeable batteries, so you'll be ready to fly — and have loads of fun — from day one.
The free FreeFlight Pro app offers a versatile set of pre-programmed features and modes.
360°, Rise, Reveal, and Epic camera Auto Shots let you re-create thrilling movie-style camera shots without spending hours of practice at the controls. In similar fashion, Smart Flight modes like Orbit, Boomerang, Parabola, and Tornado send your Bebop 2 on a smooth, steady pre-planned flight path. Cameraman mode lets you manually fly the drone wherever you like, while the camera stays locked on your subject.
The Bebop 2 Power includes Follow Me Visual and GPS tracking, which tells the drone to follow your smartphone. Then you can put the device in your pocket and run, boat, bike, or drive while the 'copter follows and films.
Excelent product at affordable price.

Excelent product at affordable price.
Awesome drone well made. This drone makes flying enjoyable and easy for the inexperienced. Picture and video quality is excellent for the price. Video is well stabilized. Upon recommendation of others I have purchased a UV filter made for a GoPro to both protect the lens of the drone's camera and filter out UV for improved video clarity in bright sunlight.
This is my third Parrot drone and to say the least it is the best one. Very powerful, attractive and responsive. I'm totally happy with the Bebop 2 Power.
Rugged Aerodynamic Design: The Parrot Bebop 2 Power's new Dual Black design combines two sleek finishes; matte black and glossy black. The drone's structure is a blend of carbon fiber and Grilamid. The latter is a lightweight plastic used in the automotive industry and is renowned for its extreme resistance. Thanks to ideal aerodynamics and an optimized propulsion system, the Parrot Bebop 2 Power can fly up to 40mph (65km/h) in sport mode and can resist winds of up to 37mph (60km/h).
Advanced Processors with GPS + GLONASS: The Parrot Bebop 2 Power Drone's navigation computer utilizes Parrot's P7 dual-core CPU for fast, accurate processing.

Scratch & Dent inventory would not be missing any essential items (if anything at all). They are covered by the full original manufacturer's warranty (1 year) as well as our 60 day satisfaction guarantee period. I hope that helps.
