Parrot DISCO

Parrot has unveiled its first drone to ditch the quadrocopter design, dubbed the Disco, that instead features wings to help it fly.Pilots can simply toss the Disco into the air thanks to a propeller in the rear. It will take off and land on its own, as an ultrasound camera on the bottom assists to prevent crash landings.The announcement came at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, and marks a big leap for consumer drones as it moves away from the quadrocopter design. It's certainly not the first take on a fixed-wing drone, however it doesn't require pilots to adjust pitch and yaw like other fixed-wing drone designs on the market.
