Re: Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

OK, Just ordered a frame from Parrot Europe, 25 Euro with shipping. I found indeed some very good youtube videos related to changing parts for Bebop 2. I'll remember next time to put the phone in airplane mode, I guess that might have been the trigger for the erratical flight. Best Regards, Costa H...

Re: Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

I have tried the temporary fix with the glue I had. It seemed to stick really well - it looks like something acrylic, but much stronger than the usual superglue - I'm not sure what exactly that is though, I bought it on some occasion with no logos an only short instructions (it's made of two compone...

Re: Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

Look very, very closely at the crossframe. Flex the arms just a little. A small crack anywhere on the assembly (usually where the arms meet the body) can cause this kind of wobble. Hey, that did it, indeed, I could see a crack in the frame by flexing one of the arms, check out the link. Should I be...

Re: Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

Ok, The motors look expensive around 120 dollars with shipping. There's some motor repair kit at around 30 dollars, I think I'll try that first. It may be that what I see as one axis wobbling is the mainboard compensating for a broken motor. I'll also try to film the wobbling at 120 fps, maybe I can...

Re: Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

Hi,

I have just tried a different set of propellers and it still wobbles. I still don't see anything unusual with the propeller/frame, but how can I rule that out?

Thanks,
Costa

Re: Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

Hi, Thank you all, I didn't expect so much replies. I have uploaded a video of bebop's flight, so you can have a better view of what I'm talking about (I hope the link works). https://photos.app.goo.gl/AejS8XujTc25TxR1A So, I have checked the motors, tried to spin them manually and they looked fine....

Bebop 2 wobbles after crash

Hi everybody, I have an old/used Bebop 2, having a great time with it usually (only one month of ownership). Today I have just turned it on, GPS was alright, took off, tried to fly it a bit in front but suddenly it didn't respond to my commands; took my hand off the phone screen but it kept going an...
