It's a bird... It's a plane... No it's a drone plane!

This is one of the most unique drones I’ve seen in a while. Instead of having a quadcopter design like all the other drones, the Parrot Disco is a flying wing. Unlike other flying wings, the Disco is very easy to fly thanks to Parrots flight controller which uses all of the same sensors found on a typical camera drone. since the Disco is technically a plane, it can’t stop while flying and it can’t take off vertically either. To launch it, you throw it forward and it automatically flies itself until you take over the controls.

Flying the Disco isn’t like flying other RC airplanes. If you want to go up, just push the stick up and it automatically adjusts the motor speed and wing pitch to go up at a steady controllable pace. If you want to go left or right, just push in a direction and it will go there. The Disco won’t flip or roll out of control like a standard plane. Even if you lose signal, the Disco will fly back to you just like a DJI drone would.

It has an integrated 1080p stabilized camera just like the Bebop!

The image sensor itself is actually a higher resolution than 1080, but the high resolution image is cropped in order to stabilize the video. This also allows you to look around as if there was an onboard gimbal! You can even use the Parrot smartphone powered VR goggles for a more immersive experience.

Like most good camera drones, the Disco comes with everything you need to get started, including the Skycontroller. All you will need is a smartphone and a big open space to fly this thing. Speaking of which, did I mention that you’re going to need a lot of open space? This thing goes fast, and even though it is easy to fly, it won’t avoid obstacles. The only thing it will actively avoid is the ground, so you can do as many nose dives as you want without worrying about crashing.

One nice thing about planes is that they don’t use as much power to stay in the air compared to quadcopters. This gives the Disco a very long 45 minutes of flight time. With some battery mods you can go for almost 100 minutes (if you don’t mind sitting around staring at a screen for that long).

The Parrot Disco isn’t for everyone, and it isn’t even for most people, but if you live in a place with lots of open space, or you like to travel to vast open landscapes, this is the perfect drone for long distance exploration!
