I think I'll get one. I don't have enough time to build and tweek a complete platform anymore. This RTF wing would be perfect for me.

Looking forward to seeing some real world reviews of this.

Just thought I'd share a little video I shot from a Disco.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZiUJ0JaCY8

Video quality is even better in the production version. I have a biased view, but for anyone that wanted to learn about fixed wing or just loves to fly, this is a solid platform out of the box.

FreeFlight has a solid mission planner for Disco, but I'm looking forward to trying out APM.

Here's a full auto run as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mouMcYXMcaU

Wonder why Disco uses the Optical flow sensor for ?

Found an old blog post - http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/determining-altitude-agl-using-... .May this is the answer ?

I heard that the camera's maximum angle looking down is 80° so not full nadir, but I wonder if it can still be used for mapping. Can anyone confirm?
