As mentioned earlier, we are obsessed with anything that we can fly without needing a pilot’s license. With a flight time of around 45 minutes, this beauty can automatically take-off and land, with a GPS return home feature. The front of the drone incorporates a FullHD 1080P camera with live streaming ability. It has “loiter” and “autopilot” modes as well as manual mode which can be controlled using the Skycontroller or the Flight Plan app. This is one Parrot that we’d love to see disco, wouldn’t we!?
