New Parrot Fixed Wing Disco Drone Takes Flight Next Month
Half a year after debuting a prototype at CES, Parrot’s finally ready to show off the final version of its next radical entry in the rapidly expanding drone space.
The Disco marks a noted departure from both the French company’s earlier efforts and the consumer drone space in general, trading in the standard rotored configuration for a fixed wing variety designed to soar speeds up to 50 miles an hour for as long as 45 minutes.
The Disco weighs around 1.6 pounds and is constructed largely of a flexible, rugged foam. The single rear propeller does the heavy lifting, and inside you’ll find a slew of on-board sensors, including GPS/GLONASS, a barometer, magnetometer, gyroscope and accelerometer.
