You can fly Parrot Bebop Drone, Parrot Bebop 2, and the Parrot Disco with Parrot Skycontroller 2. Before you do so, you must "pair" (connect) the drone and the controller. 

 

Pairing speeds up the time it takes to connect various devices. Once the initial connection is established, the drone and the controller will connect automatically the next time when you want to fly.
