New drone for Northeast Drone Services

April 23, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

After having flown the Parrot Disco for a couple of times i have realised how much fun it is to fly, you have to be more alert flying this than the Inspire 1 quad copter. As like other Disco owners i have made a few modifications to the craft,

namely added a larger battery for longer flight times

and an action camera in the fuselage for better downward facing photographs.

Here is a photograph taken with the action camera, just need to experiment with the settings.

DCIM\100GOPRO\G0101338.

New drone for Northeast Drone Services

Parrot Disco joins Northeast Drone Services, light weight, single motor and with a stock battery and perfect weather 45 minutes flying time. The Disco is not a replacement for the Inspire 1 but fits in nicely for longer flights covering more ground for land surveys. Next upgrade is to install a Go Pro camera in to the fuselage so the camera is at 90 degrees and pointing down
