Lightweight yet robust quadricopter
Parrot Bebop Drone produces the best flight performance ever seen in a leisure drone. The feather-weight ABS reinforced structure makes Parrot Bebop Drone robust and safe. In case of an emergency, the emergency function automatically stops the propellers and lands the drone. EPP hulls are included in the pack and ensure that indoor flights are safer. To ensure optimal stability without compromising the maneuverability, the Bebop Drone automatically analyses data from numerous 3-axis sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer. One ultrasound sensor with an 8 metres reach, one pressure sensor and one vertical camera to mesure speed.
The user-friendly application was developed for usability allowing the pilot to be entirely focused on the pleasure of flying. From the home page of the app the pilot can access basic functionalities: Piloting, photos/videos, flight plan, Cloud “Pilot Academy”…”Freeflight 3” offers users complete control of their altitude and speed settings and piloting mode (accelerometer, virtual joystick…). It also includes fun features such as one-touch Flip! The Parrot Bebop Drone photo and video stream is synchronised in real time with your smartphone: Instantly share your best photos on Facebook or Instagram and showcase your flights on Youtube with the touch of a finger.
Generates 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.
Stabilised full HD 1080p video
Thanks to algorithms developed by Parrot engineers, the Bebop Drone benefits from an exclusive 3-axis image stabilisation system that maintains a fixed angle of the view regardless of the inclination of the drone and its movements caused by wind turbulence.
Pilot controlled 180° vision
The pilot can control the angle of the camera directly in the piloting application with a simple movement of the thumb. The horizontal movement on a 180° angle is fully digital and does not affect your drone’s movements.

14 megapixels ‘Fisheye’ camera
Equipped with a 14 megapixel “fisheye” camera, the Parrot Bebop Drone records videos and takes pictures within a 180° field of view with remarkable image quality. Full-digital image stabilisation technology allows the Bebop Drone to take remarkably stable and clear aerial footage regardless of the drones movements, as well as providing a splash and dust proof lens. Action cameras often show distorted horizontal lines. The Parrot Bebop Drone camera provides undistorted lines resulting in a perfect, uncurved horizon.
Embedded GPS with Flight Map
Thanks to the integrated GPS, control your Bebop drone directly on the map: plan your flights on your smartphone and let your drone do the rest!
Accurate GPS localisation: around 2 metres with the GNSS chip and tracking with the Glonass satellite. Save over 350 flights and watch them in 3D with the Parrot Cloud thanks to the altitude and speed data collected. Flight Plan will be available as an in-app Freeflight 3 purchase.
When “Return Home” is selected the Bebop drone returns directly to its starting position when the altitude is greater than 10 metres. If the altitude is less or equal to 10 metres, it will rise and stabilise itself at 10 metres 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 metres above the ground.
Freeflight 3 – Free App
