The Parrot Bebop Drone is a new lightweight quadcopter by Parrot featuring a high-definition camera, its own Wi-Fi hotspot, and a navigation computer that is eight times more powerful than the one onboard its predecessor, the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0.
The company also introduced the Parrot Skycontroller, a piloting device with two joysticks that sits the controlling smartphone or tablet on its shelf for increased mobility and range. Thanks to its four antennas, the Skycontroller extends the Wi-Fi range on the Parrot Bebop Drone to two kilometers. Additionally, the device can be hooked up to FPV (first-person view) glasses like the Oculus Rift for a more immersive experience.
Both the Parrot Bebop Drone and Parrot Skycontroller will be available soon.
