Parrot:

Today, after 5 years of development, we are excited to introduce you Parrot Bebop Drone, a ultra-light drone with a full HD camera digitally stabilized on its 3-axis.

Here’s their promotional video:

 

Parrot also announced the Skycontroller iPad/iPhone add-on controller with amplified Wifi to increase the range to 1.2 miles.

Well, I have the Parrot Drone 2.0, and love it. It lets me re-live my childhood when I LOVED remote control anything. To think that when I was a kid a LONG time ago, the only remote control planes were hand-built gas-powered money pits.

I eventually grew up and have owned 2 “real” planes (Cherokee 140 and Cherokee 6), so I lost interest in remote control planes, but have really enjoyed my Drone and the videos I’ve been able to take with it.

Parrot says the Bebop will be available sometime Q4.

I have one thing to say to them:
