Five Reasons to Want a Parrot Disco Drone

Why do I want a Parrot Fixed Wing Disco Drone, here are 5 Reasons:

  1. Real airplane flying experience with little or no learning curve. And its ready to fly out of the box.  Well some minor assembly is required but not much
  2. Light weight and tough.  All parts are replaceable should you stack hard enough to damage
  3. Auto takeoff, just turn on and toss the Disco like a frisby and it will ascend to an altitude of 50 and circle waiting for pilot control
  4. Easy landing, glide in low and slow and push a button
  5. First person view, well for friends not the pilot.  The Australian  aviation  rules for drones  prevent flying a drone using FPV (see below)

 

What is a Parrot Disco Drone?

It’s finally here!  The Parrot Disco Drone announced at CES 2016 in January this year is released for sale.  The Disco is a fixed wing drone, an interesting change from the quadcopter variants that currently dominate the drone space.
