PARROT BEBOP 2 INDOORS

I haven't owned this quadcopter long enough to know everything there is to know about it. I wondered how it flew indoors, just in case there ever was a need to do so. This is a record of my first indoor flight with the Parrot Bebop 2 FPV quad.

02:27
Music: http://www.bensound.com There are some "built in" rules that Skycontroller 2 requires us to follow. Many of us are not even aware of what they are. This short video points them out, and if followed each time we fly our experience will be much less frustrating.

FOR BEBOP 2 BEGINNERS ONLY

Music: http://www.bensound.com I sometimes receive comments in the form of a question relating to an issue someone is having with their Bebop. Often times it relates to something very basic which is just part of a beginner's learning curve. This video was created to help answer some of the questions I receive. Hopefully it will help if you are looking for help. If, after watching this video, you still have a question, please do not hesitate to ask for help - from any of the fine Bebop community members.

How To Reset Your Bebop 2 - Step-By-Step
 
19:19
Music: http://www.bensound.com and YouTube From time-to-time we hear of a Bebop drone falling out of the sky or flying away, never to be found again. It may seem like a lot of trouble, but I believe some of these accidents can be avoided by resetting the Bebop to its original factory settings. This video was created to provide simple, step-by-step instructions throughout the entire process, including the test flight.

Music: http://www.bensound.com http://downloads.informer.com/garmin-virb-edit/versions/ https://www.mrkent.com/bebop/ Virb Edit is what Bebop owners use to place the telemetry data at the bottom of the screen. On June 2nd, 2017 they released an upgrade to the software. At the present time the upgrade will not work. All of the templates can be accessed without a problem. But the templates and GPS data do not connect. A "dead" template appears at the bottom of the screen but never responds to changes in the video.

PARROT BEBOP 2 POWER WHAT ABOUT THAT FIFTH WIRE ? ?
 
07:09
I was curious as some others were as to why the Bebop 2 Power model charging cable had a fifth connector when the Bebop 2 had only four since there are only four connectors going to the battery. Is that something new to help balance the cells in the LiPo battery? Here are my findings.

TESTING THE AURIGA BEBOP AGAIN

My Bebop 2 crashed while using the Auriga Bebop app on my tablet. I really don't know what caused the drone to fall 260 feet to the ground on that day but I lost confidence in the Auriga Bebop app. I have been testing and testing to make sure I can still trust it. This video seems to show I can trust it from now on.

BEBOP 2 POWER FPV GOGGLES REVIEW

CAUTION ADVISED !
 
04:47
This Hobby Mate charger will do a fine job of charging and balancing a LiHV battery. But when I used it to discharge to storage levels I believe it drew more current from the battery than what the screen reported. The heat sync became very hot, even with 1/2 amp discharge rate. As a result it damaged cell number one in my new Bebop Power Battery. I would not recommend this charger to be used with any type of LiPo battery

COMPARING VIDEO QUALITY OF THE BEBOP 2 WITH THE BEBOP 2 POWER
 
04:24
Several people have asked me if I have found much difference between the Bebop 2 and the Bebop 2 Power. I read somewhere Parrot had worked to improve the video quality of the Power model. This video was made by taking both Bebops to the park on the same day and running a "general" test of the video quality. I must admit my old Bebop 2 has slightly, slightly, slightly better quality, but not hardly noticeable. The only real differences I have found are the flying time and the FPV goggles that come with the Power model. Maybe you can see something convincing but I really cannot.

BEBOP 2 X-FRAME AND MOTOR TEST AFTER REBUILD
 
11:28
Following a crash onto pavement from a height of 267 feet on January 22, 2018 I tested to see if everything still worked properly after I finished repairing it January 25, 2018. Apparently I did a good job of tearing down and putting together the Bebop 2. It wasn't that difficult as I had the tools and watched a very helpful YouTube video on tearing down a Bebop drone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvC5L9399LY&t=404s Thanks again to the many friendly folks who had kind words to say after hearing of my crash.

Link to download the flight checklist to your tablet or phone: www.mrkent.com/bebop Link to video showing details of what I was doing when my Bebop 2 fell 270 feet to the ground: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViSEFhz3z1Q Lately I have become very much aware that connection problems between all three components of the Bebop 2 flight system can be related to how much memory is available for the flight app to use on the tablet or phone. In my own experience I have not been able to get the Bebop 2, the SkyController 2, and the tablet / phone all connected and ready to fly UNTIL I have rebooted the tablet / phone. Because there are some very specific steps that must be taken to get a connection between all three EVERY TIME, I am recommending reboot your phone or tablet before flying every time. I am finding that I get a good quick connection the on the first attempt every time after rebooting my phone or tablet.
