Parrot has really stepped up its game in recent months. This year alone the company has formed new collaborations, launched the Parrot Professional Solutions, and taken Parrot Education worldwide. Now the company has announced the release of an all-in-one quadcopter thermal imaging solution, meet the Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal Drone.
Based on the Parrot Bebop 2 Power quadcopter, the Bebop-Pro has been modified for small construction businesses, thermal inspection professionals, and public safety services. It allows users to obtain an overview of the thermal losses of a building’s facade, roof or solar panels quickly and efficiently, without the need for complex and expensive material installation (ladders, scaffolding, etc.)
The Bebop-Pro features two embedded cameras: a full HD video camera and thermal imaging camera. Data from both sensors are combined by the FreeFlight Thermal app to create precise and detailed images. Edge surrounding details are highlighted in the image, and areas with thermal loss or hot spots can be immediately identified.
The Full HD 14MPx front facing stabilized camera of the Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal enables a visual inspection of a building and lets the pilot obtain videos and pictures to understand the condition of a building. Files can be saved and used to provide evidence of a building’s damage and estimate costs.
Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal Pack Includes:
- 1 Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal drone
- 1 FLIR ONE® Pro thermal cameraFreeFlight Thermal* app
- 1 Parrot Skycontroller

In addition to the Parrot Bebop-Pro Thermal settings and flight parameters, the FreeFlight Thermal app streams images from both cameras on the quadcopter (front and thermal) directly to a connected tablet. At any time during a flight, the pilot can switch from a thermal image to an HD image, record video footage, and store captured content directly to the drone’s 32GB memory.
