Looking for the best drones is a hobby of ours. Looking for a Drone this holiday? \u00a0And I'm not talking about the Star Wars type. \u00a0Parrot just unveiled a new version to their Bebop, the Bebop 2.\r\n\r\nSo your first question is what's the difference between the Bebop 1 and the Bebop 2. \u00a0Simple: battery life. \u00a0The new Bebop, the Bebop 2 can now stay afloat for 25 minutes, almost doubling the flight time of the older version of the drone. \u00a0This is thanks to a larger battery that now stands\u00a0at 2700 mAh. Course, the Bebop now weighs a bit more than its predecessor; 500 grams versus 400. \u00a0But that's a moot issue.\r\n\r\nOn board the Bebop 2 has\u00a0the same 180 degree fish eye lens camera with 3-axis video stabilization. \u00a0Behind it is a 14 megapixel sensor and of course the ability to capture full HD video to its 8GB of on board storage.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTop horizontal speed of the Bebop two is an impressive 37mph. That's pretty zippy for an almost entry level drone. \u00a0Sure, it takes 14 seconds to reach that speed, and you'll likely not have eyes on the drone at this point (it will be far away), but it's a respectable speed nonetheless. \u00a0That said, the Bebop can climb to a max altitude of 328 feet at up to 13mph, which means you can be floating above the city's skyline\u00a0in less than 20 seconds.\r\n\r\nLike the Parrot AR Drone, you can operate the Bebop 2 just using a smartphone or tablet allowing for some automated Drone flying. \u00a0But spare yourself that painstaking process and nab the Skycontroller. \u00a0It hooks up to any tablet or smartphone and lets you control the Bebop 2 with much greater accuracy. \u00a0Moreover, manning a drone with a physical controller is an all together more pleasurable experience.\r\n\r\nThe Bebop 2 goes on sale December 14th for $550. \u00a0With the Skycontroller - the Black Edition package - it will cost $800.
