Frequenting Best Buy weekly probably doesn’t help my technology addiction but i can’t help it. Every time I visit the store, there is something new and shiny for me to look at. One week it’s a DSLR, another week it’s a Samsung refrigerator, and this week it’s a 3D Robotics Solo Drone. You might think, why do you need that? My response, how could I not need it?
It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. Solo can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the shot. This intelligent drone is also the first to support full control of GoPro® cameras and deliver live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts.
Enjoy an ergonomic controller built specifically for aerial photography. Its video game–style design breaks from the clunky and complicated RC tradition, so it feels familiar, even to new pilots. And in keeping with the video game theme, the controller even has a pause button that lets you stop Solo midflight any time.
Solo is built to maximize the GoPro experience. The gimbal* design offers direct in-flight access to the GoPro controls. With just a click, you can start and stop recording, and snap the exact photos you want during your flight. Solo is also equipped to stream live HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device. It even comes with the GoPro frame, so you can start getting great video right away.
We already have a GoPro so I must get the drone, right? This is definitely at the top of my wishlist! Can you imagine all of the amazing views that you could capture. It’s an adventure waiting to happen!
What would you use the Solo Drone to capture?
