Personal Drone Technology has transformed from science fiction to touch every day activities. Whether it be delivering pizza, to helping fight fires, to herding ship, drones are on the rise in everyday applications.

One of the leaders in drone technology is French headquartered Parrot. The latest of their long line of leisure drones the Parrot Disco with FPV. First-person view (FPV), also known as remote-person view (RPV) is the concept of piloting your drone using FPV cameras and head sets. What makes this technology game changing is that FPV technology transforms the act of flying by putting the pilot in the cockpit seat enabling them to see the breath capturing scenery.

The Parrot DISCO is an fixed wing, ultra light carbon and EPP (expanded polypropylene), ultra fast drone that can navigate at’80km/h in flight for approximately 45 minutes of flight time.

The Parrot DISCO FPV provides the pilot with cockpit glasses to provide 1080p full HD (with 3 axis camera stabilization) video. The Parrot DISCO FPV connects the cockpit glasses with the Parrot DISCO through secure Wi-Fi.

The Parrot Skycontroller 2 uses two joysticks for ultra-precise connectivity and control up to 2 KM away. First-person view (FPV) flying is very technical to master. However once you have mastered it you will be able to take amazing photos.
