Dear Parrot SA,

I’m writing to tell you I’m tired of waiting for your Parrot Bebop Drone Extended Range super pack. I want that Skycontroller in my hands and I want to take amazing HD video! I thought of including a blank check with this letter, but you know (and I know) it would just bounce. Also, I have no idea how the exchange rate would work out.

This thing looks effing amazing! I am only just now getting bored with your promotional videos. I realize I am an impatient person, but still, it’s been a while since you promised this thing was coming. You are being cruel and mean at this point, taunting me with the idea of being able to shoot attractive 1080p video. Make this happen! Give me my drone! I don’t see why the NSA are the only ones to have all the fun.

If I am honest I have no idea what I will do with this thing. Most likely I will shoot stupid videos with a lot of puppets, but there is a small chance I would do something special and entertaining like making a porno. Most likely I will just crash my Parrot Bebop Drone, so I hope they are cheap enough I can afford to replace them on a regular basis.

Can you please let me know when this will be out and how much I need to save? I might cut back on my vices and start saving if I knew how much and when!

p.s. I sent a version of this letter to your offices in France. I hear their customer service is better!

Dear Christopher,

Thank you very much for your letter.
We do appreciate your interest and excitement for the Bebop Drone.

Parrot has very high quality standards and that is the reason why our teams have been working hard on developing, improving and testing the Bebop Drone, for the last few months. This product is currently in the last phase of testing and you can expected to see it in store by the end of November 2014.
Unfortunately we have not announced pricing yet but I suggest you sign up on our website to receive news and updates on exact release date and pricing at:

Again we thank you for your interest and support.

Happy flying!

Update: Today (12/04/14) I was randomly looking for something on Apple’s site and see these are no available for preorder with 2-3 week shipping. They are about $500 and another $400 for the Sky Controller (or whatever it’s called).

The irony here is I have yet to be told from Parrot that they are available. Sign up for the newsletter to be the first to know and all you get is ads for their other products? Whatever.

End update.

I do want a Parrot. I am tired of waiting.

Chances are I won’t be getting one unless it does come out this month and the price is affordable. Otherwise I’m going to sink my cash into something else. Six months after announcing is too long to be waiting.

These things are amazing:

But not as long as they are nothing that more than a promise. They are already being eclipsed by their competitors. My advice to Parrot: Next time don’t announce a product until you are ready to ship that product.
