Hi, just bought a Phantom 3 standard and I'm still learning how to get the best out of it but it's a world of difference from the Parrot Bebop.
I bought a Bebop and it lasted all of an hour and a half of flight time before becoming very erratic. After a little research I found a few mods I needed to do to make it work properly but I'd had it two days! I'm not modding something that new! Also I tested the batteries and out of the four supplied, two were faulty. And that skycontroller!!! It's bloody MASSIVE!!
I took it back for a refund (Argos are brilliant and never quibbled) and bought the Phantom. What a revelation, it shows the Bebop up for the polystyrene toy that it is.
I'll post some pics when I get some time
