Throwing this out there, maybe others will be surprised as I was seeing bebop 1 body is slightly heavier than bebop 2 body.

Enjoy the tinkering part of this hobby, always searching for ways to enhance performance. With bebop 1, it’s a great drone but doesn’t handle rough winds as well as bebop 2.

Replaced bebop 1 body with a bebop 2 body, and added larger props slightly larger than bebop 1 propellers but smaller than bebop 2 props. Surprisingly, bebop 2 body is lighter than bebop 1 body. Coupled with the larger props, bebop 1 now flies 4 mph faster than a stock bebop 1.

Will post pictures of weight differences below, bebop 1 body is 50.1 grams, bebop 2 body is 49.1 grams. Not much difference, but the bebop 2 aerodynamic body and larger props takes this bebop 1 up a notch. Faster speeds and handles rough wind much better, flight time about the same but it travels more area due to its faster speed.

Thanks for looking,
