Want a drone with a 45 minute battery life and a 2 kilometre range? The Parrot Disco promises exactly that. This drone is controlled by Parrot’s signature Skycontroller and includes the 3-axis digitally stabilised HD camera from the Bebop drone.
To fly the drone, all you need to do is throw it into the air and let it take off by itself. The drone is powered by a single motor on the back. The Disco has an autopilot feature that’ll let you create a flight plan with GPS waypoints so that the drone can quiet literally fly itself. And of course, it’ll land itself at a proper GPS guided location when the flight is over.
Parrot aims to fill the gap between its Bebop drone another cheaper drones and really costly, professional drones through the Disco.
It will be interesting to see how this drone catches up in the already populated drone market. No pricing or details on when it is going to go on sale has been announced yet.
