Re: My first Bebop video

Be very careful flying The Bebop Parrot Drone any place where you can not retrieve it if I was you, I lost all wifi connection to the drone from the controller and also from the app.Return home never responded and the drone has now gone, stuck now with the controller and no drone. Also had video quality problems, convinced it is not 1080p quality but Parrot were not helpful.

A very nice video!  It looked cold, so I don't think I could have done it, but thumbs up to you for enduring that weather!

Re: My first Bebop video

Thanks for commenting. As GabbyParrot said, drones are machines and it may fail at some point. Overall the drone behaves very well. Don't desperate and always look from r the answer of your problems in the forum. I use AR Pro 3 as my controlling app. It has a learning curve but it gives you more control over the drone. Enjoy flying.

Re: My first Bebop video

Some Bebops have issues much like many othe electronic products.  When a new drone owner has a problem it is normal for them to come to the forum for assistance.  This gives the appearance of constant and chronic problems.  Parrot sells thousands upon thousands of drones and though there are some issues most complaints and problems are because the new pilot doesn't familiarize himself as thoroughly with his new drone as he or she should.  Fortunately the forum has many good people who donate some of their time and experience to help out.

 

So don't feel too apprehensive about your new Bebop.  Have fun flying and know there are lots of fellow pilots to help.

Re: My first Bebop video

Wow! that really looks nice. I ordered a bebop 1 and a skycontoller that should be here soon. Honestly I am a little intimidated after seeing all the problems on the forums. If I update to all the newest firmware at this time what are my chances of my drone working properly? I wanted to get something smaller than the phantom. Im sure they have their problems as well. Is that just the nature of this beast? Im into photography and this drone does raw imaging which is something I definitely wanted. Hope to get images as good as yours. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks for sharing.
