Now you can be an aeronautical photographer par excellence. Parrot unveils its Bebop drone with a 14MP full HD camera that allows you to snap some cool aerial pics and videos at a moment’s notice. Parrot Bebop drone will come with Oculus support and a Skycontroller in Q4.

Parrot unveils a super-lightweight Bebop Drone with a high definition camera fitted in the middle. When you take a look at it, it looks like an Amazon drone a la Jeff Bezos for delivering packages. But this baby is for capturing images.

The gadget is a drone for civilians. Unlike the army, this one is not for any nefarious or negative purposes. The best use is for leisure time snapshot-taking that will afford the amateur or professional photographer hour upon hour of pleasure.

The 14 megapixel front facing camera can take photos and video clips as easily as 1-2-3. As for the image quality, it is excellent and extends to a span of 180 degrees. And in spite of the jerks and wobbles of flight in the atmosphere, the camera delivers some very stable pictures.

This is due in large part to the special sensors embedded in the electronic circuitry of the gizmo. Besides these, the Parrot Bebop drone features the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art Wi-Fi facility. It possesses four ceramic antennae to boot.

These 4 Wi-Fi antennas can manage the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies in MIMO (Multiple Inputs Multiple Outputs) format. The fisheye lens ensures a wide reach that goes way beyond stereoscopic vision. 14 MP front-facing camera with a fisheye lens can record video in Full HD (1080p x 1920p) and streams live immersive views of the flight on the screen of the piloting Smartphone or tablet.

The pilot of Parrot's Bebop Drone can control the angle of the camera simply with his thumb, directly from the piloting application. The shifting on a 180° angle is fully digital. And the 3-axis image stabilization system allows for a rigid view that does not falter or fall from its state of grace (so to say).

Its Wi-Fi 802.11ac MIMO function is the best. The design and manufacture occurred thanks to the input of over four dozen engineering experts. Bebop Drone has Parrot's P7 dual core processor that allows to capture digitally treated images.

Parrot Bebop Drone has a dual core A9 CPU, Linux OS, Open source SDK and 1200mAh lithium polymere battery. Its flight time is around 12 minutes and it is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones/tablets.

This smart contraption is a perfect model of ergonomics. And as if all these special features were not enough, it also has an accessory among its repertoire. Termed the Parrot Skycontroller, it lets you maneuver it as you desire through the air.

Parrot Skycontroller gives Bebop Drone users an option to enjoy more powerful Wi-Fi connection by extending the Wi-FI range up to 2 kms. This Skycontroller is equipped with an amplified Wi-Fi radio and 4 antennas.

"The piloting smartphone or tablet is fixed on a shelf that is compatible with the vast majority of the tablets available in the market. The pilot takes the helm of the drone via 2 joysticks," states Parrot in an official blog.

 

And you can also connect FPV (First Person View) glasses to the Parrot Skycontroller with the HDMI plug and then lean your head to position the camera of the Bebop Drone to enjoy extreme sensations. Thus nothing is left to chance and with this technologically terrific thing in your hands every picture you take will have a heavenly aura of artistic gravity to it.
