The Parrot Bebop 2 offers an enhanced and immersive aerial experience with a super compact and lightweight design. This versatile drone comes equipped with a 14MP camera to capture and transmit highly detailed, live footage in 1080p HD video all at max range of 2 km. It also has a return home button that will bring the drone back to you after reaching a certain distance. For more advanced drone pilots, this little bird can also be controlled by your smartphone. The Bebop 2 is designed with a 2700 mAh battery that lasts up to 25 minutes of flight time between each charge and comes equipped with an altitude hold function so you can make it hover steadily in the air.

It can be expanded with a number of third-party accessories, including an Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant enabled voice control. Thanks to the wide range of available accessories, this drone can be used for a number of different purposes. You can use it to take high-quality photos and videos, but it can also be used for monitoring purposes thanks to its ability to receive a signal from various sensors.

Parrot Bebop 2 Drone Review
gadgetreview.com
The main drawback I find with the Bebop 2 is the plastic body. Perhaps I just have a bias against plastic, but it makes the drone feel cheap. Still, I can’t complain of how stable it is in the air despite this and the fact that it’s only half a pound. If you’re a beginner and decide to invest in this drone, you’ll be happy with your purchase.

A fun drone you can fly using just your phone.

In the end the Bebop fails to live up to its aspirations. It barely distinguishes itself from its predecessor. In fact, there's so little here that's new or different that I am not sure why Parrot didn't simply release a bigger battery pack for the first one. The Bebop 2 feels rushed, like Parrot was trying to hit a deadline at any cost. It's frustrating, because if the Bebop 2 performed the way Parrot clearly wants it to, it would be fantastic. As it stands, however, this is not the drone you're looking for.

Better than the original, but still shy of greatness

The Parrot Bebop 2 definitely improves on the original and remains a good choice for its portability and safer design, but stiffer competition and merely good image quality limit its overall appeal.

Can serve as a selfie machine or a toy, but can't produce usable video clips

The Parrot Bebop 2 is a small, lightweight camera drone with no gimbal. While the small size makes it fairly inexpensive and fun to fly, the lack of a gimbal makes the resulting footage very shaky and unstable. This model would be a great toy for a young kid, as the footage produced would be fun for kids to look at, but not suitable for any sort of movie-making venture. The Parrot further endears itself to kids by performing tricks in the air. So if your hero is Peppy from Starfox and you want to do a barrel roll, this is the model for you. If you're looking to capture better footage the DJI Spark offers much more stable, high-quality video at a similar list price.

A drone that – for a little extra – will make you think you can fly

On its own the Parrot Bebop 2 is a likeable smartphone-controlled drone that captures good-quality stills and video, but it's the addition of the FPV kit which really makes it stand out, offering a better control experience and an amazing perspective on the world from above.

FUN, FINE, AND FATALLY FLAWED

Here’s the thing: 300 meters is actually plenty for a beginner drone that costs under $600. If Parrot promised and delivered on that range reliably, I would view it as an attribute on a cheap drone that is trying to straddle the gap between a tool and a toy, a sensible trade-off between safety and capability. I would even be okay with a drone that sensed when it was losing connection and warned me or stopped moving to keep itself in range. But when Parrot promises you can get to 300 meters and sells a drone that routinely disconnects at 150 meters, (or 600 meters instead of 2 kilometers with the SkyController) I’m loath to recommend the unit to anyone.
