Speeds of up to 49.71 miles per hour

The Parrot Disco FPV is the first smart flying wing to reach speeds of up to 49.71 miles per hour, ensuring flights full of excitement for any drone or flying enthusiast. With the Parrot Skycontroller 2 remote control you can fly, spin, and glide without stopping.

Aerodynamic design

An aerodynamic design helps to keep the Disco FPV in smooth flight, while flight stabilisation keeps it steady in the air while spinning and gliding. The Parrot Skycontroller 2 offers precise control, or control it with a smartphone and observe a real-time view of what the camera sees on your smartphone.

Get a first-person view

Change perspective and get an even more immersive first person view through the Parrot Cockpitglasses. Just put your smartphone in the Cockpitglasses and it will feel as if you are flying.

Capture Full HD

Record the high-flying action in high quality Full HD quality to share with friends and family, or to upload to your favourite social network sites, or video sharing sites such as YouTube and Vimeo.

Fly for longer

A high-capacity battery provides up to 45 minutes of battery life to let you fly for longer, so you won't need to cut your flights short. With a charging time of just one hour, it doesn't take long to get back to the skies.

Wow this looks seriously cool, am tempted

I need it....i mean my son needs it for Christmas.. .....

Does it have follow me mode ? Looks like it will be most useful for its FPV.

Notice they don't show it being landed, so it's going to be either catch it or dump it into the ground/bushes

No it doesn't have follow me as it's more like a plane.....where s the parrot bebop 2 I bought does.... Very was well cheap on the adventurer pack the other day

Bought this just last month. It's awesome especially at this price

Around £900 everywhere else so this is a good price. Was looking at the videos on YT about this last night and what’s cool is that you can have a fully automated flight plan, it takes into account wind and other external factors such as altitude changes to avoid collisions into account to calculate how long the flight will take. All you have to do then is just let it off your hand and wait for however long it takes to complete the flight and just enjoy the footage. I was really impressed, as you can even set it to fly fairly long distances by using the GPS which other drones are unable to do because they have to have a continuous connection with your remote

Fly it once. Lose control and either crash it and wreck it. Or lose it completely at it flies off at 50 mile per hour into the distance... Save your money

Looks like it pitches it's nose up to take out all the momentum.

What is the range of the controller?

Looks like a CAA minefield. It's a fixed wing plane, but marketed as a drone. So technically you shouldn't fly it above 120m and no more than 500m horizontally away from you.

I didn't read that part in the description.

Saw a video of a guy trying to island hop from Maui, the drone never came back and was never recovered. Could see this being an issue in the UK with power lines and the like. I don’t think it is able to detect obstructions and adjust flight path accordingly, which could be an issue at 50mph or when on an automated flight plan.

Though that said they do look like a lot of fun.

Would the bebop 2 be a better option? Or the DJI Spark? For a newbie to drones that is....

I got the spark well happy with it, I feel this is more a plane with camera rather than a drone

Interesting viewing

Good luck using wifi for FPV for anything close range, the delay won't help.

Those rules apply to all RC vehicles anyway, it's just nicknamed the drone code as that's the most common craze at the moment.

"Drone" is more of a media buzz word these days which encompasses all RC devices. "Quadcopter" is a better describer for the spark
And I agree, high end quadcopters are much easier to learn than RC planes. Plus quad copters are more versatile (Taking pictures, filming events, exploring) whereas this is more of an awesome toy.
Think sporty estate vs a super-bike.

Thanks OP - Just bought one with free next day delivery. Just need to tell the wife now...

45min flight time that’s amazing

I would like to know the same.

Range on this (in UK) is around a mile to mile and a half. Spark will be around 500m in perfect conditions and much shorter battery life, but more suited to selfies or whatever it is you kids get up to nowadays.

If you've never flown an RC plane before it's a different kettle of fish to a phantom. It's constantly moving and in this case moving at some speed! I'd recommend at least getting to grips on something like a foam supercub sport S which is easy to control, nice and slow and will glide well. This takes off, fly's in to an orbit which if you don't know what you're doing is asking for trouble. You'll need a fair bit of space to land, that 2 acre field you fly your quad in will suddenly feel very small

Edit - also not sure you can wear glasses with the headset, think that was the thing that stopped me from purchasing a while back as I'm very short sighted

Id reccomend visiting Multirotor.co.uk
Great place for answers & has pilots that fly the commerical drones (spark, mavic etc) & some that build there own.
I'd most certainly reccomend doing plenty of research as its's a hobby that's really grown over the last few years.
Do you just want to fly out of the box? Or build your own, fly line of sight or also FPV. Photography or thrill of flying?

Is it truly 45mins of flight?

I don't own one so can't tell you from experience. It says up to, I imagine with no wind and using minimal power that could be possible, I'd say 30-35 more realistic (but still a hell of a lot better than any quadcopter)

Be careful on your 1st flight. Mine got crashed into the tree.

Depends what you want. I got both but I enjoy disco more than disco. Both have their plus and minus

Spark and bebop and this totally different. They are Quadcopter much easier to fly and almost anywhere. Whereas disco is a plane and you need bigger place

It's not for the faint hearted or people who can't afford it. Anything that goes up can crash. You do save loads of money at this price but off course it's for people who have that sort of money and willing to take the risk

It's a plane, it is going to be several times more efficient in flight than any kind of 'copter that have no wings. One multirotor motor would easily power a lightweight foam plane at 50mph.

Interesting to see this, haven't looked at anything RC related for a year, I would guess this is a consumer version of a sensefly fixed wing survey drone with cheaper camera.

Yeah, doesn't look bad. Maybe I'll try something like this one day. Still very hooked with quads although the 3-4min flight times do suck!

From browsing the forums it seems that if you replace the stock battery with a 4000mah one, you can get 100 minutes of flight time.

Your user name says it all. Although I can actually forsee that happening in fairness

Seen some good videos of this in action, it goes really high and has very good range, landing it appears a bit tricky though if there are trees in your vicinity. Would probably get one if I had £500 to waste, but sadly, I don't!

Looks cool, now I just need a desert to fly it in

Nearly bought a drone a while back but couldn't think of anywhere I could fly it without annoying others or potential hazards (roads / rail / pylons etc). God knows where you could fly this in the UK, perhaps join a RC plane club but then you need all the paperwork.

what paper work ? all you need is join a club. i fly in my local park. have also flown in one of the national park

Might have to buy one to take on my California road trip, might be able to film the whales at Monterey Bay.

It glides a lot compared to a drone which has four motors going constantly, there’s a few good videos on YouTube, I’d like both if I had the money 💰
