I got my Bebop 2 for Christmas 2017.
The video was, not very sharp. I complained to Parrot, and after much exchanging of e-mails, they said send it back to them. ( March 2018, Cold winter temps here in N.H. USA ) They replaced it with a different bebop. ( Original was red, and replacement was white. )
The video on second one was "slightly" better, but not great.

Good luck in dealing with them. Since then, I've had to send the 2d drone back because it just shut off, and fell 25 feet to ground. Again much back and forth before they said send it back. They sent me a 3d drone ( again a different one.) That one was about same video quality as the 2d one.

I don't see much difference between our summer temps, and our winter temps, as far as video quality.

( Note: drone video is near end of video. Time stamp 23:00 )

My latest exchange with Parrot was so screwed up, I gave up trying to deal with them.
I wish you good luck in dealing with their current customer service.
