Max/Min altitude - Limits the height at which the drone can fly.
Max Distance - Limits the drone's range. You will be notified when Parrot Disco reaches this value.
Geofence - When max distance is set and Geofence is activated, Parrot Disco will return to the starting position when it reaches maximum distance.
*Note: If Geofence is not activated, Parrot Disco will not return after it reaches max distance.

The video/photo settings page opens.
Choose between video, photo, and time-lapse mode photography, you can also adjust refresh rate, white balance (to augment ambient light in your environment), as well as exposure (via the red sliding bar).
Video recording starts automatically when you press the Take off button. The RECORD icon flashes during video recording.

Use your finger to move the red dial at the bottom of the screen to change exposure. Or use the scroll wheel R1 on your Parrot Skycontroller 2.
*Note: You cannot shoot videos and photos simultaneously
DNG (RAW) - This mode takes a raw fish-eye photo with a 180° FOV at a 4096×3072 pixels resolution in a DNG format. DNG is compatible with professional grade editing software such as Photoshop or Lightroom.
JPEG - JPEG mode takes a screen shot of the video stream at a 1920×1080 pixels resolution. The image quality is slightly degraded because video image stabilization tends to remove sharpness and accentuate edges. In this mode, you can quickly take pictures (shutter delay is very short) that are not distorted and with a light file size.
JPEG 180 - lets you take a fish eye shot with a 180° FOV. This mode offers small editing possibilities.
The default picture format is DNG, slide the red dial at the bottom of the screen to change exposure.
On your Parrot Skycontroller 2, press the button to take a photo.
The internal memory capacity of the Parrot Disco is 32 GB, the number of stored photos is dependent upon the format selected.
For best photo quality, we recommend leaving the photo setting in DNG mode.
Time-lapse lets you take photos at preset intervals. Use the white slider on the right to set the interval between 1 to 300 seconds.
*Note: Picture format for time-lapse mode is the same as photo mode.
The map is accessible using the satellite/map button on the lower right side of the piloting interface.
