The Best Drone That Money Can't Buy Yet

Parrot just blew the competition out of the water with their new Bebop Drone. This ultra-light flying machine is small, sleek, and comes equipped with a stabilized high-definition camera mounted on its light monohull frame, allowing for insane high-altitude photos and a fluid flying experience. 


Safety and precision take the wheel with propeller-shielding bumpers and an embedded GPS system with Flight Map control. The drone itself has a Wi-Fi range of 300 meters — but you have the option of getting the Parrot Skycontroller, which increases the range to over a mile. Plus, you can pre-plan the drone's flight route straight from your phone. 

You have extreme control over the Bebop with two ultra-precise joysticks, and you can even connect first-person viewing glasses to the Skycontroller with an HDMI and see the action firsthand using the Oculus Rift.

A 14 megapixel 1080p camera with six element fisheye lenses gives you a 180 degree view from above as the action is recorded on your smartphone or tablet. You can shoot HD images from the sky, changing the selfie game forever. 

It's light, sleek, safe, and everything you shoot can be easily shared to your friends and family online. Cue open, drooling mouths now.
