DESIGN AND BUILD:

The main body is made of EPP (expanded Polypropylene), which is a material that keeps the overall weight to a bare minimum, while providing the essential strength and a streamlined form to the entire craft. Carbon tubes are laced throughout the wing to avoid wing flexing at high speeds. The f2.3, 14 megapixel CMOS camera is integrated into the nose of the craft providing it with an ultra-wide angle of vision. The aircraft can be put together in a couple of minutes since the wings easily slot into place with the main body. Getting the aircraft into its flight mode is the fun part, wherein the Disco is simply tossed into the air and it auto-stabilizes itself and continues with the remaining flight. The entire craft is robustly built to tackle on some of the demanding flight conditions.
