  Network Name   Change the network name of your Parrot Bebop Drone: Change the Parrot Bebop Drone  name in the Product name field. Reboot the Parrot Bebop Drone . Note: The network name of the Parrot Bebop Drone  can only contain letters, numbers and underscores ("_"). It must not exceed 32 characters in length.   WPA2   Set a password for your Parrot Bebop Drone 's Wi-Fi network.   Location   Select your country.   Wi-Fi band   Connect the Parrot Bebop Drone to the 2.4 or 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands. The 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band enables you to fly the Parrot Bebop Drone from a greater distance. It is generally more congested than the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band in urban areas. The 5 GHz Wi-Fi band enables you to obtain a better quality connection between the Parrot Bebop Drone and your smartphone for streaming footage. Check your smartphone user guide (or the technical specifications) to see whether it supports connection to the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band. If it does not, use the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band only.   To switch the Wi-Fi band (2.4 GHz or 5 Ghz) manually without using the application, hold down the on/off button of the Parrot Bebop Drone for 5 seconds .   Note: The diagram at the bottom of the screen shows the state of the Wi-Fi channels.   Before flying the Parrot Bebop Drone , ensure that you comply with the Wi-Fi frequencies restrictions for the area in which you intend to fly. Certain frequencies may be restricted or forbidden. Selecting the country and activating the outdoor option enable FreeFlight Pro to adapt the available channels according to the legislation of the selected country.   For example, in certain countries using the 5 GHz Wi-Fi band may be prohibited in outdoor mode.   In automatic mode, FreeFlight Pro automatically selects a channel according to the country, the mode (outdoor/indoor), and the Wi-Fi band selected and the congestion of the channels.   If you encounter a problem with the quality level of the Wi-Fi connection: Select Manual mode. Select a non-overloaded channel using the information displayed on the diagram.

Before each flight check list   Battery   Make sure the battery housing is intact and the terminal is clean. STOP using/charging the battery IMMEDIATELY if the housing is cracked, punctured, or deformed. Dispose of any used battery in compliance with your local safety regulations.   Charger   Inspect the charger, make sure the housing is intact with no visible damage and the contacts are clean.  STOP using the charger IMMEDIATELY if the housing is cracked, punctured, or deformed. Dispose of any discarded charger in compliance with your local safety regulations.   Propellers   Check the propellers for any visible damage; a bent blade could cause instability in flight, which could result in loss of control (and in turn crash the drone).  In addition, make sure the propellers can still be securely mounted to the drone.   Camera   Check for any visible damage to the lens.  Blemishes on the lens could affect photo and video quality.   Airframe   Check for any structural fatigue or damage to the central cross, make sure the wires connecting the motors and antennas are secured to the airframe.  Remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated in the motor housings, battery contact, and USB port.   Landing feet   Check for any structural fatigue or damage, make sure the Wi-Fi antennas are secured to the two front feet.   Overall wear and tear   Check the drone for any visible damage. Remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulate between the central cross and the upper body.  STOP using the drone immediately if any wire or electronic component appears damaged (bare wire, warped PCB, etc.)     Storage   Battery Store the battery away from direct sunlight in a cool and dry place where the ambient temperature is below 140°F/60°C.  If you plan on not flying your Bebop 2 after 50 th flight, run the battery to 50% capacity before storing.   Drone Store the drone away from direct sunlight in a cool and dry place.     Maintenance and cleaning   Camera   If necessary, use only designated lens-cleaning material for cleaning to avoid inadvertent damage to the lens.   Airframe   You may use compressed air to remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated in the motor housings, battery contact, and USB port.  DO NOT use any moistened material for cleaning.   Propellers   Remove propellers from the drone prior to cleaning; use a dampened cloth to wipe down the blades.  Make sure the propellers are completely dry before mounting.
