With The Disco Drone Debuted In 2016 The First Model Plane Of The French Drones Pioneer Parrot. We’Ve Been Looking At The Parrot Disco Droneand Clarified The Drone With Camera.

Parrot Disco Drone: Easily Into The Air

Already optically, the Parrot Disco Drone differs  from the other drones models of the manufacturer Parrot. Instead of four or even six rotors, the Parrot Disco Drone is equipped with only two wings that span an enormous span of 1.15 meters. At the rear of the drone there is a comparatively small propeller, which is mainly used for starting operations. On the whole, the Parrot Disco Drone–although unmanned–gives the impression of a model plane and can only be compared with the usual quadrocopters in detail according to travelationary. In the meantime, Parrot uses very sturdy polystyrene or expanded polypropylene (foam plastic) for the components of the Disco Drone, for instance in the area of ​​the nose as well as wings, in order to ensure the lowest possible weight of just 750 grams. The wings of the Parrot Disco Drone are removable so that the transport of the model aircraft can be done comfortably and quickly. In the middle part of the Parrot Disco Drone hides all sorts of technology and electronics – such as battery, flight control or autopilot or camera module. The battery of the Parrot Disco Drone has a capacity of 2,700 mAh and is to allow a flight time of considerable 45 minutes. However, the Parrot Disco Drone reaches an extreme top speed of up to 80 km/h, the range over WiFi connection is about two kilometers.

The  Parrot Disco Drone, a second-generation SkyController and an FPV goggle called Parrot Cockpitglasses, are part of the package of the 1,299.00 Euro package (UVP–currently only 999 euros). With the FPV glasses the camera image of the Parrot Disco Drone can be viewed from the cockpit perspective in a resolution of 720p, which should offer an even more intense flying experience. The video mobiles are digitally stabilized and are stored with an FullHD resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) on an internal memory. Photos shoots the Parrot Disco Drone, however, with a resolution of 18 megapixels.

Control Through App, Skycontroller And FPV Glasses

The start and landing operations of the Parrot Disco Drone are amazingly simple. A special device for dropping does not need to start. First, you just need to download the free  app called FreeFlight Pro–for Android and iOS in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store–and install it on your smartphone. The charged battery is then inserted into the battery and connected by means of a cable connection. The Parrot Disco Drone offers three control options. Thus, the remote controlled drone may optionally using the supplied SkyController 2 by means of, SkyController 2 and Smartphone or via SkyController 2 and the supplied FPV glasses are piloted.

Take Off And Landing Extremely Simple

Regardless of which version you choose: The coupling between the individual devices and the Parrot Disco Drone is extremely straightforward and is explained in the German-language manual. Before the first flight, the Parrot Disco Drone should be placed on a level surface and the control or sensor system should be trimmed using the “Flat Trim” function. Important: The Parrot Disco Drone is not started with, but contrary to the wind direction. Then simply press the start and the landing button on the SkyController 2 or inside the app so that the propeller can be started and the Parrot Disco Drone can be catapulted like a paper driver in the desired direction. Panic control commands are not necessary–the drone does everything by itself thanks to the integrated autopilot right after the start. In order to throw the Parrot Disco Drone into the air, you hardly have to apply force–even a small swing upwards is already sufficient To give the drone the first driving force. If the starter flies automatically in the air at an altitude of 50 meters and a diameter of 60 meters, the flight direction can be independently determined and adjusted in the app or via Joysticks of the SkyController. In the “Autopilot” mode, the Parrot Disco Drone maintains both speed and altitude autonomously. The left joystick can be used to accelerate and slow the hovering or to vary the orbit of the hover in the right or left direction. With the right joystick the Parrot Disco Drone can be controlled downwards and upwards and turned to the right and left. If you want, the Parrot Disco Drone can also maneuver with a conventional RC remote control. However, the manual mode is not recommended for beginners, since the autopilot is completely deactivated and the speed and altitude are not maintained automatically.

Return To Home Function And Spiral Landing

The Parrot Disco Drone is equipped with a Return To Home function–after pressing the corresponding button on the SkyController 2 or the FreeFlight Pro app, the drone stabilizes around 50 meters above the ground, returns to the starting point and circles Then with a diameter of about 60 meters above the departure point. There is no need to worry about the landing procedure: If a suitable area is selected–as soft as possible–the Parrot Disco Drone must only be directed against the wind and the start and landing button on the SkyController pressed. Then the drone sinks down spectacularly, straightens out and lands comparatively gently on the ground–fully automatic and very safe. During the descent, the Parrot Disco Drone’s flight path can be manually adjusted to fly up or down, or to turn left and right.

The landing process can be interrupted manually by pressing the start and land button again–then the drone again rises to a height of approximately 50 meters and starts with the usual circular flight with a diameter of about 60 meters. For particularly spectacular landing operations, the Parrot Disco Drone still has a cool function: during the so-called circular landing, the Parrot Disco Drone lands in the form of a spiral. In doing so, she independently recognizes whether she lands against the wind on the ground and reduces the landing speed completely independently. However, the circular landing is only suitable for a landing area with a diameter of more than 80 meters, since the helical landing requires proper space.

Fpv Image And Telemetry Data In The Freeflight Pro App

Particularly worthwhile is the view of FPV image and telemetry data in the FreeFlight app. The control screen, along with an aerial perspective FPV image, includes a Coming Home or Return To Home feature, a map mode, current speed or airport display, distance to the smartphone display, remaining battery capacity, and current display GPS signal quality. In addition, the video and photo recording can be started and stopped within the FPV screen. If you want to pilot the Parrot Disco Drone with the included videobille, you just have to insert the smartphone into the Parrot Cockpit Glasses. On the SkyController you can quickly change to the direct view by means of the right trigger button from the immersive view or virtual reality so that the drone can be observed in the doubt by the camera of the smartphone. Despite the WiFi connection, the FPV image is transmitted comparatively without delay and without noticeable jerks.

Action-Packed Aerial Photographs–With Restrictions

The camera quality of the Parrot Disco Drone is adequately dimensioned and allows for action-packed and well-resolved aerial photographs. Despite fisheye lens, the distortions within the image are limited by digital equalization. There is a small but there is nevertheless: Because the Parrot Disco Drone in contrast to a quadrocopter or multicoter can not stand or hover, landscape or architectural photos can be realized only to a limited extent. Due to the construction and flightability of the Parrot Disco Drone, objects can also be filmed with difficulty in the video recording, since the rigid wing can not fly sideways or even backwards, but only straight. However, the internal and non-expandable memory of the Parrot Disco Drone offers a rather small capacity of just 32 gigabytes. Photos and videos are transferred to the computer via the microUSB connector and the supplied cable. In the FreeFlight Pro app, there is also the option to access the internal memory of the drone and transfer photo and video material directly to the smartphone’s memory via WLAN connection.

Conclusion And Rating

The Parrot Disco Drone is a great and comparatively spectacular drone. The special design and construction is a delicacy and makes you want for action-packed flight maneuvers. The Parrot Disco Drone is not only a drone, but an extremely simple and securely controllable flight model that should convince not only beginners, but also model-making professionals. The price for the whole package is comparatively high–but you get a worthwhile overall package from the aircraft, controller as well as FPV glasses. Fun is guaranteed with the Parrot Disco Drone, as long as the purse gives it.
