Is it really a drone if it has wings and looks like a plane? Maybe.

Parrot’s latest drone is exactly that: a prototype called DISCO that can fly for 45 minutes at a time, at incredible speeds.
It features a 14-megapixel camera on the front, and even comes with a pair of first-person view goggles so you can fly the thing in style.
The wings on the DISCO are detachable, and it even features nifty autonomous modes, like a return home button which flies it back to you on its own.
The problem is, as far as we can see, this is actually a remote control plane rather than a drone. But hey, who are we to judge? It looks awesome.
Parrot didn’t provide many details on the drone, other than that it’ll be available sometime in 2016 for an undisclosed price.
In the meantime, watch the video and salivate over what could be yours eventually.
