First look: Parrot Bebop 2

Parrot Bebop 2

Last year, we got to play with the fun but flawed Parrot Bebop drone. The French brand, which also produces the highly-rated Zik range of wireless headphones, recently sent us the Parrot Bebop 2.

We took it for a quick early morning flight around Green Community Motor City. Here are the results.
