Parrot announces Parrot Disco

Parrot has announced the launch of the Parrot Disco, an easy-to-fly fixed-wing drone that provides a fully immersive flight experience.

 

The ultra-lightweight Parrot Disco is powerful and displays impressive airborne performances. It can reach top speeds of 80 km/h and offers 45 minutes of flight time.

 

Previous piloting experience isn’t necessary to fly the Parrot has announced the launch of the Parrot Disco, an easy-to-fly fixed-wing drone that provides a fully immersive flight experience.. It takes-off and lands automatically and comes fully equipped with a powerful autopilot function to help control the flight.

 

For example, when the control stick of the remote control is tilted to the right, the fixed- wing drone will curve in the same direction, while the autopilot takes care of lightly tilting the wing and increasing the speed of the engine.

 

The immersive experience of the Parrot Disco is intuitive and accessible. Parrot has created a first person view (FPV) headplay Parrot Cockpitglasses which puts the pilot into the heart of the action by live streaming the airborne footage captured by Disco’s Full HD frontal camera.

 

The Parrot Disco can be flown with complete precision thanks to a new and compact remote control, the Parrot Skycontroller 2. Model aircraft enthusiasts will also be able to pilot Parrot’s fixed-wing drone from their own RC controller, in full manual mode and after connecting a module.

 

Parrot Disco offers the possibility of an immersive flight without having any technical knowledge, and the possibility to record high quality aerial shots using the fixed-wing drone’s 32 GB memory.

 

The new fixed wing drone will be available in New Zealand from October 2016, for a suggested price of NZ$2,499.00, which includes Parrot Disco, Parrot Skycontroller 2 and Parrot Cockpitglasses.
