21 Sep 2016

Parrot Bebop drone is much stable while comparing with the most widely used AR Drone. Due to ROS support and its open API AR Drone was widely used in the research community.

Autonomy Lab had released the Bebop driver for ROS support and am planning to do some fun projects with it. This video is showing bebop taking off and landing where the commands are send from ROS. Bebop is fun to work with but flight time of just 10 min is really annoying (Bebop 2 has twice the battery life but doesn’t have one to try out).
