Parrot Disco Fixed-Wing Drone

Parrot's new Disco drone ditches the normal quadcopter design for a fixed-wing aircraft. To take off, you just toss it in the air and let it reach cruising altitude.

It can fly for 45 minutes and hit a top speed of 50 MPH. It is controlled using the Parrot Skycontroller and has a front facing camera you'll still be in control of even when you lose sight of the Disco.
