Seems a good deal for a half decent drone.

The is the original model, not the Bebop 2.

Yellow is only £279.99. Not sure of the difference between colours, but the red version is £319.95, and blue is £367.63.

This does not come with the optional Parrot Skycontroller, which is £399.99 (!!) for the matching yellow version.

Not sure on the licencing issues (if any) with these, and to be honest I don't care.

They can cause damage and injury and they invade privacy but apart from that they're great.....

LOL almost 90min before anyone did the BBC big bad drone campaign, model aircraft have been dangerous since the start and lets not forget kids getting run over by cars or McDs causing obesity lol

Model drones are no harm its idiots flying them without knowing the laws that causes problem

I heard somewhere that everyone using a drone would have to register somewhere next year?

Good luck with that one, the police can't even enforce speed limits and driving offences, which are far more serious a risk to people than some toy drones. Apart from the toddler that lost his eye, which was tragic obviously, has anyone else in the UK been seriously injured by one of these? Surely footballs, frisbees and other such flying objects cause more injury.
Also, I don't quite get the privacy laws aspect of drones, sure I understand about if you film over a neighbours property for example, but I don't see why there is an issue using these to film in public places, when dash cams / helmet cams / phones etc are supposedly ok. It all seems a bit muddled to me.

nice to see a logical post. most people jump on the "dangerous" bandwagon because they've read a story in the paper..

If anyone prefers it is the same price at Argos. Been tempted for a while now, finally bought.
