Fixed-wing Parrot Disco drone stays aloft for 45 minutes

Parrot showed off a fixed-wing, hand-launchable “Disco” drone that can fly for up to 45 minutes at up to 50 mph, and offers a new autopilot mode. Just two months after launching its second generation, Linux-based BeBop 2 quadcopter, claimed to offer a groundbreaking 25 minutes of flight time, Parrot showed off a fixed-wing Disco UAV claimed to almost double that with 45 minute battery life. Although Parrot doesn’t mention it on its product page, several CES reports, including one from BGR, claims the Disco can fly at speeds of up to 50mph, far faster than prosumer quadcopter speeds.
