On Tuesday, Drone-maker Parrot announced the second-generation Bebop drone will be making its way to customers in time for the holiday season.
The Parrot Bebop 2 will offer a major flight time increase thanks in large part to weight saving and a larger 2700mAh battery. With the original Bebop only being able to achieve about 11 minutes of flight time, the new updated Bebop 2 bumps that up to 25 minutes. Other notable specs of the Bebop 2 include a 14-megapixel fish-eye camera with an 180˚ view, 3-axis video stabilization, 8GB of internal storage, and an increase of flight speed from 24 miles per hour to a new top speed of 37. It still also features the popular return home button that will land your drone back down for you.
The Bepob 2 will retail for $550, or for $799.99 coupled with the Parrot Skycontroller Black Edition, which is said to extend WiFi flight range by 6561 feet. It will be available for sale on December 14th.
