Civil drones have developed rapidly. In 2012, the DGAC set up a regulatory framework to ensure that these devices are operated safely when used professionally.


In this section, the Parrot team has put together the official regulations for professional drones in order to make them easier to use and fly with confidence!




  • Parrot Bebop Pro 3D Modeling must be used according to the civil aviation regulations in your country.


  • The flight locations must be compatible with the movements of the drone and must not endanger people, animals and property in the vicinity at any time.


  • Always make sure you have permission before using your Parrot Bebop Pro 3D Modeling in public places such as railway stations or airports. The same applies to public roads. For more details, consult the regulations in force in your country.


  • As the pilot, you must maintain visual contact with your Parrot Bebop Pro 3D Modeling at all times, and be able to control its trajectory.


  • Before flying your Parrot Bebop Pro 3D Modeling, ask about any restrictions on the use of Wi-Fi frequencies at the flying location as the latter may be restricted or banned altogether.


  • Remember that it is forbidden to record and distribute the image of a property without the authorization of its owner and any third party that has intellectual property rights in relation to the property: this can constitute a violation of the property's image rights for which you may be liable.


Flight conditions


  • Never fly Parrot Bebop Pro 3D Modeling at night. What's more, check the weather conditions. Do not fly in the rain, snow or fog.


  • Do not fly over water.


  • Make sure you have at least 80 meters of clear space for your Parrot Bebop Pro 3D Modeling to take off and land. Keep away from any obstacles.


  • Make sure that the flight altitude programmed in Pix4Dcapture (entered in relation to take-off point) is sufficient to clear the obstacles in the surrounding area.
