I've been flying the Disco with ArduPilot for a few months now. It really is an amazing little plane. Despite weighing just 800g it handles a lot of wind (I flew it in an 18 knot wind recently with no problems) and handles really nicely. It is a very practical plane with great performance and long flight times.

And a insane price point .

Good to hear Tridge! What type of goggles come with it? Do they use a mobile phone? And lastly is the controller any good?

Ardupilot for the win

Does this have a belly camera bay?

Could be interesting as a lower cost Ebee competitor.

These FPV googles is just a holder for your Android phone ...

@Rob - I saw a picture of it 2 days ago with a belly bay that looks like it was designed for the Sequoia. Looked portrait orientation to me, but I'm just basing this off of one picture I saw. I wasn't really interested in the Disco until I saw that, but I sure would like to hear more on it.
