Let's face it, anything this simple would endear photography and videography enthusiast to dabble in a little photography anywhere in the world and what's more, you don't need to carry any heavy RC controller in your gadget backpack to fly one of these.
Those of you familiar with Parrot AR Drones will know this. They were one of the first to come out with the wildly difficult to control quadcopters and this allowed the Chinese made DJI Innovations company to usurp their throne. Their RC controller of choice was based on the Android or iPhone app but the AR Drone cost a bomb to own and was difficult to operate.
But Parrot is fighting back with the Bebop drone that is both simple to fly and easy to operate, all from the comfort of your Galaxy Smartphone or iPhone.
It even comes built in with a GPS so that you don't have to worry about it flying away and not coming home when there is signal interference.
Made for Oculus Rift
Oculus Rift is a VR style First Person View (FPV) goggle that can be paired with the Parrot Bebop. This means that you can view and control the flight as if you were flying within the drone itself.
