Parrot, the original household drone company, recently released the Bebop 2 Power, an upgraded version of the Bebop 2 with a better camera, better controls, and more battery life. This fierce flier can swoop for up to sixty minutes with the included batteries and a first-person view is available using Parrot's VR glasses and a cellphone.
I was quite please with the drone's performance and I was especially enamored by the included Skycontroller 2, a handheld controller that lets you hold your phone while twiddling with the drone's joysticks. In fact I actually preferred controlling the drone with the controller rather than the phone, a first for me when it comes to more professional models.
The Bebop 2 Power costs $599 and for that you get the FPV goggles, the controller, and two batteries. The drone has two modes - sport and camera - which slows things down or speeds things up depending on how fast you want to fly.
I was pleasantly surprised by this thing and found it to be one of the best drones I've flown in a while. It's well worth checking out.
Watch original series, sports and more on go90.
