For those of you who want physical controls instead of just using touch, Parrot also announced the Skycontroller. Basically, it'll give you more of a ground-control experience while also improving wireless communication thanks to its amplified Wi-Fi radio and four antennas allowing you to fly farther and higher.

The Skycontroller will also support VR headsets like the Oculus Rift via HDMI completely immersing you for first-person-view flight.

The Bebop is light -- its maximum weight is 400 grams (14.1 ounces) -- and compact, measuring roughly 12 inches square (28 cm) and 1.5 inches tall (3.6 cm).

Parrot didn't have pricing set yet for the Bebop and Skycontroller, but it's expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter.
