Found one of these little guys in my front yard, but I can't test it without a charger. Anyone got one?

That's a darn nice drone to find. Does it have the camera mounted on it? Can you tell if it is the Bebop or the Bebop 2?

So, I looked it up and it looks to be a standard 3S LiPo battery, but in a custom case. So, you'd either need an original charger (which are like $45), or an adapter (like this one at Amazon for $6) to use a standard LiPo charger (which I have).

So, not sure if that helps any. I guess if you wanted to, you could ship it to me and I could buy the little adapter and try it out -- but not sure if that is worth doing. smile

Can you link me to a LiPo charger so I know what I need? I may just go ahead and buy both things.

So, this is a the charger that I use. It's a cheap knockoff of the popular iMAX B6. Note that my cheap one doesn't come with a power supply -- you'll need to provide one or grab one of these to go with it.

I use that to charge all of the small 1S batteries for my Tiny Whoop multirotor, but it also supports the 3S that is in that Bebop -- except that you'll need that adapter mentioned above.

Note that there are several versions of that adapter at Amazon (including the one I linked above) -- and ALL of them seem to ship direct from China (so it'll be like a month before anything arrived). Just to warn you.

yes

Also, you'll need the controller too, right? Or can you fly that Bebop with an app or something?

I can use an app at least to test it out. I'm going to try to follow your advice, if only to see how much value I can extract from the thing. Thank you for your help.

Do you think this would work with the plate adapter thing?

The funny thing is, my buddy who owns the house I'm staying in found a Bebop 2.0 a couple months before, in the bathroom at the airport.

I think it would, yes. Seems to have a standard 3S connector. I don't know them that well -- mine is pretty adjustable. But I THINK that one would work for you.
