CNET First Look
Parrot Bebop 2 is a smaller, lighter, safer drone for aerial photos and videoIts video quality might not be the best for the money, but this drone's tough design, fun features and easy piloting make it worth consideration.
[SOUND] How do you like this? And this? Other drones can do it but the Parrot Bebop 2 makes tricks like this easy. Since you just need to tap a couple times on the screen to do it. It's one of the safest drones out there too because of this. Its flexible propellers stop the moment you contact something. And at around a pound it won't cause a lot of damage if you crash it. You can fly it entirely with a smartphone or tablet. Or you can spend a couple hundred more than its $550 price. And get Parrot's massive Skycontroller Which increases range and has better control. You can fly it around for about 20 minutes, which is about twice what the original got. But unfortunately the photo and video quality hasn't really improved. It's still just good, but not great. It's really it's size, weight, safety, and easy piloting that makes it stand out. And doing barrel rolls with just a couple of taps. [MUSIC]
