Parrot Bebop 2

Parrot's new Bebop 2 is a great value. The second-generation quadcopter features 25 minutes of flight time - more than double the 12-minute flight time of the original Bebop.

The Bebop 2, which will be available Dec. 14 for $549.99, weighs just more than 1 lb. and is slightly heavier and slightly longer than the original. The Bebop 2 is also much faster than its predecessor hitting 37 MPH compared to the 24 MPH of the first Bebop.

The Bebop 2 is controlled via the FreeFlight 3 app on your iOS or Android device, streaming images live right on your screen. The Bebop 2 drone holds 8GB of recorded content and uses a 14-megapixel, 1080p fish-eye camera that shoots with a 180-degree field of view.
