The Parrot Bebop became an autonomous drone. Bebop owners can tap waypoints and let the drone fly completely autonomous.
What makes this interesting? It came just 2 days after the FAA stated the drones will soon need to be registered with the US Government.
This drone uses the MAVlink open source protocol. Owner can take control of the drone anytime during flight. Parrot says the drone’s location is accurate within 1.8 meters (6 feet).
