The invention of the Drones has probably been one of the best inventions of the century so far. Since its invention almost all the industries including the defense industry, e-commerce businesses have been fiddling with the idea of how to use the drones to replace their manual task. We may have all seen and wondered in amazement a recent video that went viral on all social media platforms about how Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giants have been testing the use of giants for their product delivery.
While most drone makers that only concerned about the industrial applications, a French Company, Parrot thought differently and made Drone for domestic use, for amusement to be more precise. A few years ago, Parrot had become an overnight sensation when it release its first done, A.R. drone, that was so simply to fly that even a 5 year old kid could fly it off at the backyard. The high price of the A.R drone was its own nemesis. Though, Parrot gained huge popularity, it did not achieve many sales for its drone.
With the release of its newest Drone, Bebop, Parrot attempts to achieve maximum sales of its Drone. It has been going all guns blazing with its sales pitch that say, Bebop is more than just a Toy it is a flying too that offers the best combinations of performance, price and ease of use. It is a tool that is fitted with a full HD camera that can freely roam around the sky and capture high quality images and videos of the surrounding. All these features come with a price tag of just $499. The best thing is that you can almost immediately let it fly off the box and control it with your smartphone or tablet.
The Bebop drone is fitted with a huge 14 MP camera that has the capacity to record videos at 1080 pixels and also capture motions at 30 FPS (frames per second). The in-built stabilization features ensures that there are no shakes or jitters while clicking images or recording video during the flight. The embedded GPS support and the built-in Wi-Fi support up to 1.2 miles lets you share your recording almost immediately.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the magnificent features of the Parrot Bebop drone:
It is essentially a quad copter, which means it has four set of wings. The primary structure of the Drone is made of a light weight material that makes it both easy to fly and safe for the people in the vicinity. The structure consists of a hard, shock-resistant foam that holds the camcorder, four rotors and a big battery. If you are flying indoors, the Drone also comes with a protective feed that makes it safe to fly within closed walls.
The battery, which powers the Drone, is fixed in a way that it can be easily attached and detached with simple slide mechanism. A Velcro strap is given that is wrapped around the battery for additional safety to keep the battery firmly in place. The fish eye design of the camera ensures that you get a 180 degree of the field.
The standout feature of the Bebop Drone is definitely is its photography capacity. The fisheye camera set-up along with digit stabilization feature lets the Drone automatically crop the full frame and remain stable irrespective of the movement going around the drone. The special anti-vibration algorithm developed by Parrot ensure that there is no shake due to the rotation of the rotors.
Other notable feature of the Drone includes, its capacity to directly upload the video on YouTube and as well as share it on social media platforms. The built-in GPS features lets you route the flying path through new flight path feature of the FreeFlight 3 App. The Joystick used to control the drone has dedicated buttons for taking off, landing, clicking still images, capturing video and a ‘seek home’ home, which instructs the drone to fly back home.
