Parrot Bebop 2 FPV – Best Quadcopter Review
The Parrot Bebop 2 FPV differed from the previous version of the drone by its smaller size and better flight characteristics. Flight time has also been doubled and camera performance has been improved at 1080p.
Parrot Bebop 2 FPV Quadcopter Reviews
Bebop 2 FPV is essentially the same Bebop 2, but with new accessories and enhanced piloting options. FPV stands for "First Person View" and comes with the included VR headset. There is also a SkyController 2 remote control that makes control easier and more precise. I tested Bebop 2 FPV to know more about the new quadcopter than now and share.
Parrot Bebop 2 FPV Design
This drone should not be considered a separate FPV version of Bebop 2 – they have the same design and mechanics. Parrot sells its CockpitGlasses VR headset and SkyController 2 remote separately, so if you already have a Bebop 2, you can simply buy these accessories.
The drone still weighs 500 grams, the battery capacity is 2700 mAh, the propellers are the same (included), and the design has not changed. The 14-megapixel 1080p camera has received improved image quality through software optimization.
The 8 GB of internal memory fills up quickly when shooting long movies. The FreeFlight Pro app lets you transfer videos and photos to your phone or tablet. Also, you can directly connect the quadcopter to a Windows PC or Mac, transferring the footage.
SkyController 2 and CockpitGlasses were already on Parrot Disco, now they can be used with both drones, gadgets from Parrot are interchangeable.
The first SkyController was cumbersome and cumbersome, with two large handles, a neck strap and a wide Wi-Fi antenna. The new version is 2 times smaller, looks and feels like a game controller, the Wi-Fi antenna is significantly smaller, and a detachable smartphone/tablet holder has been added.
The battery is now internal instead of external. The previous SkyController used the same 2700 mAh battery as the Bebop 2, so I had to carry it around with me. The battery placed inside is more convenient and provides the same flight duration.
Parrot Cockpitglasses looks like a standard VR headset, but in terms of appearance it is far from Google Daydream View or Samsung Gear VR. Almost any smartphone based on iOS or Android with a diagonal of 4.7-5.5 inches is supported. VR apps work fine, but the headset https://jiji.co.ke/cameras-video-cameras-and-accessories is too bulky and only meant for piloting the Bebop 2.
