Parrot Bebop Drone PF722000 Review
There’s a demand for high end flying cameras and this has made many manufacturers to focus on this market and somehow forget about the casual videographer who just wants to capture a few quality videos for personal use. Luckily, Parrot have tried to cash in on this ready market as other manufacturers chase the enthusiasts. The Parrot Bebop Drone was intended for the amateur photographer or videographer who doesn’t want to invest much but wants to get some quality aerial shots with a drone. The Parrot Bebop Drone is easily available in most major online retailers and so this means that it’s targeted at the casual photographer rather than the pro user.
The Parrot Bebop Drone is built from fiber glass, strong plastic and foam. This means it’s the gentler and safer alternative that most people have been looking for. It’s easy to use and can be controlled using a smartphone. Unfortunately, Parrot somehow messed up trying to capture the interest of some enthusiasts. They might have built something that doesn’t fit the enthusiast and at the same time doesn’t cater for the casual videographer when it comes to pricing. The Parrot Bebop Drone is just a good quadcopter that tends to be a bit pricey for casual videographers and lacks some important features for pro use.
It’s pretty lightweight and very tiny for what it can do. Moreover, it’s tougher than you would expect and at the same time could sustain a considerable amount of abuse. Moreover, it could still be repaired in case of any breakages. The best part of course is that you can control it using your smart device as well as a Skycontoller. However, the bigger Skycontroller might set you back nearly the same amount of money that you use to buy the Parrot Bebop Drone itself. It might be tiny and lightweight for easy packing but it tends to have a major problem with wind. Moreover, it’s powered by very small batteries that only last a few minutes.
In essence, the Parrot Bebop Drone is good when it comes to durability, ease of use, decent images and video quality and of course it’s size and weight. However, the performance, battery life and value for money would make you think twice before purchasing this beauty.
At the end of the day, the Parrot Bebop Drone sets itself apart by offering more features such as photography and videography. It’s beyond the typical toy and it gets some decent shots. Nevertheless, there’s a lot of work needed to get this baby to compete in this niche given the aforementioned cons. Moreover, you will have to do a lot of practice to get to enjoy the Parrot Bebop Drone especially if you plan on using your smart device to pilot it.
All in all, the Parrot Bebop Drone still remains one of the most advanced drones that parrot have produced in the last couple of years and this will make it the most interesting to use for consumers as well.
