Affordable aerial videography - Parrot Bebop test footage

Recently, Don Sausa got his hands on the Parrot Bebop minidrone, and flew it out when the sun started shining. This is raw test footage with no post processing done. Initial thoughts with this new tool are as follows:


  • It's affordable; makes aerial videography accessible
  • 1080p resolution, 14MP
  • Very easy to setup
  • Two batteries included
  • Stabilization


  • Automatically changes exposure; challenging for low light environments
  • Video sometimes "twitches"

    You can see the real benefit out of this in terms of real estate projects, wedding photography, and a new fun toy for prosumer hobbyists.
