The blue BeBop Drone Quadcopter with 14-Megapixel Flight Camera from Parrot is a Wi-Fi-based, mobile device operated RC aircraft capable of capturing 1080p aerial video and taking 14-megapixel still photos. The BeBop is controlled from an Android or iOS mobile device running the FreeFlight Pro app (see Parrot website for latest list of supported devices).
In addition to letting you control the quadcopter, the app provides a real-time preview from the flight camera, and you can even record a low resolution feed directly on your device. For high res recording you can use the 8GB of built-in memory, or connect a USB storage device for increased capacity.
This features a pair for prop guard/bumpers, one for the right and one for the left side. For better performance outside, the Indoor Hull can be left off. The BeBop Drone powers from a 1200mAh lithium-ion polymer (LiPo) battery, which is estimated to provide around 12 minutes of flying time.
14-Megapixel "Fisheye" Camera
The built-in camera can record up to 1080p video as well as capture 14-megapixel photos. Notably, the camera uses a 3-axis electronic image stabilization system to avoid the added weight and power consumption of a mechanical gimbal.
The system works by cropping a windowed portion of the total image yielded by the camera's 180° fisheye lens, thus counteracting the effects of wind turbulence for stabilized, horizontally level video. Plus, you can use the piloting app to electronically adjust the camera angle.
Constructed from impact-resistant ABS plastic. The propellers are designed to stop automatically on contact, and initiating the Emergency Mode causes the BeBop Drone to land immediately.
Relying on the built-in GPS receiver, the Return Home feature causes autopilot to engage, flying the BeBop Drone back to the take-off point.
Linux-Based Flight Control Computer
The Parrot P7 flight computer features a dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU, and 8GB of flash memory. The hardware is fixed on a magnesium shelf that acts as electromagnetic shielding and as a radiator. The computer runs the Linux OS and there is an SDK available for third-party software development.
