Check out my Disco playlist here for more flights https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQok8jR0tGxaIVRXHZbEVRHm9AnI01tHc

In calmer conditions for maximum range it could fly anywhere on the island or across the ocean as long as there is Cell signal. I’ll be trying longer flights and also adding one more battery pack for over 1000mah of power!

    I am waiting for my application to be reviewed by the airmen certification board, but as I watch your and others videos on YouTube I am left wondering why anyone would bother learning the regulations? Is the part 107 license which I spent money and time earning anything more than a joke? I mean to make money using a sUAS you are required by law to have it, but a million YouTubers don’t care at all about that and they break many laws besides! Just wondering if you have any thoughts on the subject, as I am new to your channel I don’t know if you have addressed this before.

  • Alpha Tango says:

    Fantastic job ! One question: Once the 4G-mod done, is it still possible to switch easily between 4G and 2.4Ghz(WIFI) ?

  • Erik J says:

    @Dustin Dunhill do you know if the 4G Lte Modem will work on Verizon?

  • I am a couple months late finding this it appears. It's pretty cool especially the range you got and is a different perspective of viewing angle. I built and flew rc planes for years but retired and moved to Philippines where I have no place to fly them, I just build them now. This interests me, but all the negative comments about parrot on Amazon having real bad customer support kinda keep me from ordering one. Does anyone else make a fixed wing kinda like this with WiFi I would love to do what you did and just fly around the coast of some islands here. Love your reviews.

  • Alpha Tango says:

    Hey Dustin ! How do you manage to fly with LIPO and LI-Ion batt ? As both technology needs different settings, I'm curious !

  • A nice little tip with the rain….use a little 'Rain X" on the lens…water rolls right off and you don't get those droplets obscuring the view. FYI

  • Absolutely no video interface flying out. Is this helped by the 2 4G Whip antennas you have ontop, instead of the right short antennas in your Disco 4G test flight?? Also the fact you are not affected AT ALL by line of sight (necessary for conventional R/C) you can fly low plus on for miles like this coastal flight. This really is something else!! No conventional R/C can compare surely!?? πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜±

  • Another awesome video! If I setup this mod for my disco for 4g, would I still be able to use the disco in normal 2.4ghz mode?

  • creag says:

    For the batteries did you have to buy a charger or douse the parrot disco come with a charger

  • Oh man my disco came today i cant wait for the morning man your islands are so beautiful im watching one of ur sub videos with a water fall im stuck in fort worth texas so yeah i need to mod my disco so i can fly somewhere nice from my porchlol ur being attacked by a minature lobster thing is that an ethernet cable spindle?

  • Oh which parrot app do i DL? And is it in the app you can set your flight path ? They all seem to be for bebop and something with wheels

  • Manioke Eua says:

    I actually thought you were going to fly that thing to kahului, nice video man.

  • botcitizen says:

    How much mobile data do these flights use?

  • Adrian Mutya says:

    It"s just amazing! Thanks for sharing the beauty of Hawaii.. – I am always watching your video – hope more Parrot Disco Flight It's like I am riding in a plane.. loved those clear footage.

  • Wow. Can you give us a tutorial on how to install the mod?

  • wolf2351 says:

    I found your videos today and i wanted to know if you have a video or instructions on paper on how to set all of this up.

  • Lol the case 400Β£ lmao i could just buy a hard case for a bow just like the 1s for my crossbow and bow and arrow and some foam for around 40Β£ all together and have the drone be completely intact and it been able to carry other drones extra controllers batteries etc etc or a suit case with wheels so i dont even have to carry it XD

    Just got myself a disco kit fpv etc for some easy relaxing flying for 300Β£ makes my laugh that the bag is more than 100 more than i paid for the actual drone itself XD

  • JD Combs says:

    While you were installing the soft mod script did you have to tweak the battery parameters as well?

  • I must say that is fantastic. I have to get myself one of these. Much credit to you sir!!!!

  • Jens Harbers says:

    Still better LTE than here in Germany. So sad :/

    But nice Video. I might also built your Disco mod, it is so friggin awesome. Like it. And I like the place you life in. ^^

  • David says:

    Crazy how the waves churn the beach sand like that. It almost looks like they're all swimming in filthy water lol.

  • EchoNine1 says:

    Hi! I just got a used parrot disco. it was pretty banged up so I got it dirt cheap. I'm replacing the broken camera (it still works, but there's a smudge that makes flying it frustrating) I saw on another video that you hand some antennas on your huawei modem. it's the only thing I'm missing to run the 4g mod. Are the antennas 5dbi? any specific length? Also, did you change the battery percentage parameters to better suit the titan li ion batteries? I've read they have a faster voltage drop rate than a Lipo, so the disco's battery indicator would be way off. If you did change it, could you tell me the new line of code?
    Thanks man! Great videos!

  • Hi Dustin, the ( I use this charger https://amzn.to/2Lo3b4h ) is showing as no longer available, can you recommend an alternative? please, everything else is on it's way. Is it possible to charge the titan batteries with the parrot charger? many thanks for the great video's and for getting me off my fat butt from playing VR games, much better to be out in the fresh air πŸ™‚

  • Can anyone help me with some information? I have a Parrot Disco and I would like to know where the center of gravity is located. Thank you and I wish you great success in your activity.

  • Awesome video man! Had my disco for a week now and ive just done the 4G mod, works great. Have you ever had any servos fail on your discos? Seen a few people online mentioning servo upgrades.
