Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer
For a while I was actually afraid that, like 3DR, they would disappear. And that would have been really sad as the Parrot Bebop 2 is a super fun quad to fly. But it looks like Parrot is still fighting back, although in this case they are mainly doing it with pricing and accessories.
With the Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer you get a complete package at a great price.
What do I mean when I say “complete”?
Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer Package
Well, the package includes the following:
- 1 x Parrot Bebop 2
- 1 x Skycontroller 2
- 1 x Cockpitglasses
- 2 x set of propellers
- 1 x Follow-me GPS & Visual Tracking In-App Promocode
- 1 x Battery
- 1 x Charger with cables
- 1 x USB Cable
- 1 x smartphone / tablet stand
So everything you need to take your Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer out into the world with you and to have a fully immersive flight experience.
And you also get the Skycontroller. Something I have always said was more or less required or your range would be too limited.
Visual Tracking & Follow Me
I love that the Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer also has Visual Tracking and Follow Me. This was something that gave DJI such a big lead in sales.
After all, when you’re out and about doing your thing it can sometimes be difficult to pilot a drone. If you’re riding your bike across rough terrain or your climbing it’s pretty much impossible. Besides, sometimes you just want shots that feature you. Not you with a controller in your hands.
That’s why I think it’s great that the Bebop 2 Adventurer comes with the Follow-Me app.
This feature allows you to capture your best moments in pictures and videos without you actually having to do that yourself. It’s all done because of visual recognition technology in combination with the GPS tracking system and barometer on your smartphone.
Just put your phone in your pocket and you know the quadcopter will automatically follow you. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer Backpack
Parrot has included a backpack for you. And best of all, it was designed specifically for the Parrot Bebop 2 by the people that made the Parrot Bebop 2. So everything is going to fit just right.
This ergonomic backpack was designed to be comfortable and to easily transport your quadcopter. Aside from that, it also has 2 exterior and 2 interior pockets where you can store accessories and, if you bring one, your tablet.
But not only that, it also has a special pocket for your laptop. So you can bring everything you need to process your photos and videos on the road.
The backpack feels sturdy and is made of high quality material that protects you’requad and accessories while you’re on the road.
Parrot FPV Cockpitglasses
And the best part, what is an accessory when you buy a DJI quadcopter (and also for some of the other Parrot bundles) is included here. The Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer comes with the Parrot FPV Cockpitglasses.
So you can have a fully immersive flight experience wherever you go! Just don’t forget to check local legislation as you may need a spotter in certain places/countries.
But, there is really nothing like flying with the Parrot FPV Cockpitglasses, The whole world gets tuned out and you feel like a bird gliding over hilltops and rivers.
It’s the closest you’ll ever come to actually feeling like a bird. And with it’s 1.2m (about 2km) range you won’t run out of things to see anytime soon
I recommend everybody to try it at least once. Most likely you’ll be sold on the FPV experience from that point on.
Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer price
And now we come to the best part, the price.
When you’re looking at DJI quads there is nothing that comes close to giving you this setup for this price.
The complete Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer comes in at $579.99
Granted, some of us still have to save up for that (me for instance) but then, Parrot offers an aweful lot of value for that price.
Enough for me to fall in love with the Parrot Bebop 2 all over again.
