Parrot Disco, Swing, Mambo, Bebop 2 FPV – Pre-order!

Parrot is getting ready to unleash some very cool remote control toys, drones, and planes, just in time for the holiday season, and you’ll want to make sure you’re at the head of the line for when they ship. We give you the lowdown on these new models, and what you need to know about what might become your next favorite drone.

Parrot Disco

Parrot Disco FrontEarlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Parrot, the company behind the wildly popular AR and Bebop drones, showed off a radically new drone: a fixed-wing, FPV streaming technological wonder called the Disco. While it functions much like a traditional remote control airplane, it takes several pages from the book of drones, and adds a few of its own. One, you can launch the Disco merely by tossing it in the air. From there, it’ll climb to 50 meters and begin circling around while you get situated and ready to pilot it.

Parrot Skycontroller 2 and Cockpitglasses FPV

Parrot Disco FPV Goggles To control it, you can either use your smart phone locked into the all-new, compact Skycontroller 2, or, you can insert your smartphone into the included Cockpitglasses FPV streaming googles set, and get a truly immersive flying experience. The latter has people buzzing. The Parrot Disco can fly 50 miles per hour, and is extremely maneuverable.

The Parrot Disco has a 14MP camera, with 3-axis stabilization. This provides a crisp, clear picture while flying and streaming, as well as records some amazing footage. The Parrot Disco’s camera records at 1080P and includes a 32GB MicroSD card.

Parrot Disco CHUCKParrot CHUCK

At the heart of the Parrot Disco is CHUCK, which stands for Control Hub and Universal Computer Kit. CHUCK combines all of the sensors that make the Disco a joy to fly, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, barometer, GPS/GLONASS system, and airspeed tube. These sensors and the onboard computer combine with the forward-facing camera to give you an amazing Heads Up Display (HUD), jet-like experience with the Cockpitglasses. The Parrot Disco flies for up to 45 minutes, and can be constrained with geo-fencing coordinates to keep it in a range you wish to set. The Disco can be controlled up to 1.2 miles.

The Parrot Disco takes off before Christmas, so be sure to get your pre-orders in now. Available at Amazon.com with an MSRP under $1300.

Parrot Mambo

Parrot MamboThe Parrot Mambo is yet another iteration of the Parrot MiniDrone, which found itself way into our guide for best drones for kids and quadcopters for beginners. This version comes with a couple of very cool little attachments. The first is a BB gun attachment that makes for aerial combat or fun chasing the cat or younger sibling. It comes with 50 plastic pellets, and Parrot says can the Mambo can shoot objects up to 6 feet away. Buy two of these and engage in some aerial combat, or double up on  bothering the cat.

If you’re not down with shooting plastic balls that can easily get lost, the Mambo can also utilize its grabber attachment to pick up items up to 4 grams. The Mambo has been tuned to accommodate these two attachments.Parrot Mambo Grabber

Its integrated battery charges in 30 minutes and lasts for 9 minutes without its attachments on, or 8 minutes with. Stabilization is delivered via a mix of accelerometer, gyroscope, ultrasound, and pressure sensors, as well as the tried-and-true vertical camera sensor for horizontal stabilization.

Parrot FlypadThere’s no FPV or streaming video, but the Mambo is compatible with Parrot’s new affordable Flypad ($39.99 sold separately,) which makes flying the drone much easier than even the traditional app-based controls. There’s just something about those analog sticks.

The Mambo is shipping soon for under $120 from Amazon.

Parrot Swing

61dbvpnh0yl-_sl1000_A quadcopter and RC aircraft in one, the inexpensive swing can be controlled easily via the Flypad, and features many of the stabilization features found in other Parrot drones. While not designed for image work or true fixed wing flight like the Disco Drone, the Swing brings a completely new flight experience for those looking for a completely different kind of drone. This should be on to consider as a gift or a fun addition to your stable of drones.

Just make sure you have a little extra space – this little guy likes to roam!

Parrot Bebop 2 FPV

Parot Bebop 2 FPVAn update to the classic we all know and love, the Bebop 2 comes bundled with the Skycontroller 2 and Cockpitglasses. A more traditional option to the Disco, the Bebop comes with an optically stabilized 1080p camera that delivers the same smooth shots as it s predecessor. Comparatively inexpensive to other drones with its capabilities, you’ll still need your phone for the FPV experience, similar to the Samsung Gear VR, but your hands will be for that analog tactile feel you’ll find with the Disco. A welcome and surprising offer, the Bebop 2 FPV bundle brings life into what is turning into an iconic platform that has a lot of legs in the market.
