Parrot Bebop Autopilot

The Parrot Bebop2 is a Wifi controlled quadrotor UAV that uses a Linux autopilot which can run ArduPilot firmware. Instructions for converting a Bebop to run ardupilot are here. We recommend the Bebop2 over the original Bebop because of its much improved GPS.

Note

Copter support was added in Copter-3.3.
