Well, I stand corrected.
Although their website does, currently, seem somewhat misleading: there’s an “Available Now!” link, which takes you to the Skycontroller page, but then the “buy now” icon takes you to another page prompting the eager buyer to enter an email address to be notified when it is available.
So, to clarify, Parrot has finally released pricing ($499) and shipping dates (immediate) for the Bebop drone. You’ll need an iPhone, iPad (or Android?) to control it. Not included.
If you’re wanting the sweet little multi-axis SkyController, it’ll be available in a kit with the drone for $899. iPad not included. But there’s no clarification of the release date for the controller.
Hmm… is $900 a reasonable price for the complete kit? Not sure. Maybe after I get some other things in order, I’ll think about picking one up.
