Will the mapping app be available for the Parrot Disco?

Hi Euiyoung,

Thank you for you interest in our product. It is in the pipeline to add the Parrot Disco to our list of drones supported by Pix4Dcapture. However, the developers have not started to work on it yet. Unfortunately, we are not able to give a precise time frame for the support of Parrot Disco at the moment. But it will probably be before 2017 (as a rough estimation).

Regards,

Hello,

Is there any update on Disco support? I would be happy to help beta test.

Kind regards,

Hi Nick,

It is currently not planned to have the Parrot Disco in our list of drones supported by Pix4Dcapture. However, since the app supports Bebop 2 and so Parrot SDK, we expect the Disco to also work with the app but we cannot guarantee it. In case you will have the chance to test, we will be glad to read your feedback and learn about your experience. In the meantime, we also forward your need for supporting the Disco to our Product Team.

Regards,

Hello,

Is is possible to chat directly with the Product team regarding Pix4D compatibility with the Disco?

Kind regards,

Nick

Hi Ahmed,

We will soon release a new version of Pix4Dcapture supporting the Disco with the Sequoia camera.

Stay tuned! :slight_smile:

Can i buy one Disco with the Sequoia camera.

This is great news. I have a Parrot Disco and a Sequoia. Today Parrot announced the Disco-pro AG. Pix4D is the missing part of this sweet combo. You are going to support the Disco as well as Disco-pro right?

Parrot and Pix4D will soon give more information about this new solution. Note that however, Pix4Dcapture will support Parrot Disco only with a Sequoia mounted on it. In other words, the picture trigger will not work for the default camera of the Disco.

That would be a very unfortunate move to not include the regular disco in this. It alienates anyone who bought the Expensive prosumer Disco.  With out the Squoia mounted on it the disco won’t have the Agricultural capabilities with different spectrums, however that is no reason to not include it in the new mapping support that Pix4d will be offering, you are just leaving the door open for other companies to make the program and make you look bad. Just my humble opinion. I really like my Disco, however it has drawbacks and this feature could help offset those drawbacks. you could use the 45degree setting on the disco, and with a crosshatch pattern do a great map. you allow me to do that with my mavic and its not even your drone!

 

Just a thought.

Any news?

Pix4Dcapture will support the Parrot Disco-Pro AG drone with the Sequoia integrated soon, when the the product will be released by Parrot. It will be possible to perform autonomous grid flight using this special drone first on iOS and then later on Android later. Note that Pix4Dcapture will not support the default Parrot Disco (not coming with the Sequoia mounted).

Please find more information here: https://www.parrot.com/us/business-solutions/parrot-disco-pro-ag

It does not mean we will never support the default Disco drone, but we are waiting for more user feedback to evaluate the demand. The flight plan needs to be adapted to the fixed wing combined with a front camera which requires some development to achieve optimal reconstruction with Pix4D Desktop.

We will however, reported your request to the app product manager. Could you perhaps provide more details about the applications you are interested in so that we better understand the need?

I do have the “default” Parrot Disco and a Sequoia camera. Will Pix4DCapture support this combo?

Good day, Well you allow me to use my DJI Mavic Pro with front camera at any angle I want so I would imagine this setup would not be much more than setting the angel and triggering the pictures and saving them.  I really appreciate that you took the time to respond to my post. 

As for the NEED I am sure all of us who have believed in this product so much that we spent the money your flying drone would love to be able to use it to map different areas, for fun. You would also be able to say that you were the first to have a program that allowed users to do this sort of mapping with a fixed wing craft, on the Hobbist/ProSumer Level. 

While it wouldn’t have all the amazing features that your Sequoia setup does, it would be a good stepping stone to allowing Disco users to buy that extra module as an add-on possibly improving your sales, and helping Disco owners justify their purchase, being that it is upgradeable, doing something that even the coolest ArduPilot planes (less expensive) planes can’t fully do.

Personally, I am hoping to use the mapping feature to help save lives, by 3d mapping (Cross Hatch) 45-degree angle pictures, and looking for lost children/adults or helping Give situational awareness to my team and community for saving lives and helping the community. If you had this feature up and ready I could have already probably saved one life of an elderly man who was lost and ultimately died in my community. I love the positive things that you bring to the drone arena and I hope to see this be another positive added to your company resume. You are welcome to contact me for beta testing/feedback etc. I believe strongly that your company is in the position to Change the game yet again and dazzle the world.

@Lucas

Pix4Dcapture will support the Parrot Disco-Pro AG only, but not the Parrot Disco even if a Sequoia is mounted on it by the user. The app will work with this specific drone built by Parrot with the Sequoia camera fully integrated.

@Florentino

Thank you for taking the time to provide all these details, we also really appreciate since it shows strong interest in our products. Rest assured, that we will forward your feedback to our product managers to push in the direction of supporting the default Parrot Disco.

Hello
Wondering if you will release a Parrot Disco V1 version. The app that comes with has a lot more to be desired when monitoring an area with the correct distance between air lines.
