Technically speaking, the Parrot Disco isn’t a drone but rather, a ‘smart flying wing’ that can reach speeds of up to 80km/h (50 mph). But that isn’t what makes it exceptional.
What makes the Parrot Disco unique, is the fact that it combines the latest flying techonologies and merges it with immersive VR. They managed to do this by building a 1080p Full HD camera into the front of the Disco that’s stabilized on the 3 axes.
That combined with the Parrot Disco COCKPITGLASSES gives you an immersive flying sensation like no other. Check out the video below.
The COCKPITGLASSES works by using your smartphone and the FreeFlight Pro application. Simply place your smartphone in the goggles and you’ll be soaring through the air in no time.
The drone itself is constructed out of light carbon and EPP (expanded polypropylene) that gives it an exceptionally lightweight design that can be maneuvered in the most fantastic ways. From gliding to diving to doing barrel rolls, you’ll be sitting in the front seat.
The Parrot Disco can be controlled with either your smartphone or the included Parrot SkyController 2 remote control. It also has a range of 2 km (1.24 miles), features an on-board 32GB memory so that you can record all your flights, and has a battery life of 45 minutes.
It also includes an ultrasound sensor, an altimeter, optical flow camera and an airspeed sensor. As well as, GPS and GLONASS positioning systems.
