Parrot Bebop 2
The Parrot Bebop 2 was a solid camera drone on a budget, it’s now outdated, but the airframe is proving effective in newer versions of the drone.
The Parrot Bebop 2 hit the market as an intriguing alternative to more expensive drones. Offering a decent camera, solid flight capabilities, and a light-weight frame, the quadcopter clocked in at well under a thousand dollars. Parrot built the Bebop 2, as with most of their drones, out of plastic and foam. The foam core is quite resilient, super light, and is easy to both build with and repair. Propeller arms and some body shielding are made of the plastic, adding the rigidity needed for an aircraft.

The bebop 2 is a larger drone, by modern standards. It does not fold down, so you’re going to need to keep the original case or a larger backpack for transport.
Parrot likes to use a single airframe and build multiple machines on top. Variants of the Bebop design hit the market over the years, including some pro and commercial iterations.
