Parrot has unveiled the final version of its Bebop Drone, a third-generation quadricopter designed for leisure.

Equipped with a Full HD 14-megapixel camera stabilised on a 3-axis framework, the Parrot Bebop Drone takes video and pictures of the world in a 180° field with remarkable image quality.

The product combines numerous sensors that give it stability and easy-to-use piloting via Wi-Fi with a smartphone or a tablet.

It is also compatible with a Wi-Fi extender, the Parrot Skycontroller, which can be used to pilot the Bebop and provides an extended flight range.

The product offers a unique perspective of the world for those interested in flying, capturing images of landscapes or filming fast-paced sport action.

Henri Seydoux, CEO of Parrot, says: “The Bebop Drone masters several challenges, performs amazingly while flying and films in 1080p in a stabilized manner – all of this with a  size reduction of  25 percent compared to the AR.Drone. To achieve these results, our engineers worked for more than three years. The Bebop Drone embeds high-performance processors, a graphics co-processor with professional-grade camera capabilities. With Skycontroller, we enter a new dimension, one of immersive and high precision piloting.”
