The Gift of the Future? Introducing the 3DRobotics Solo Drone at Best Buy!

We have been carefully following the news of drones here in Nebraska.  The have been used for about year here for monitoring crops and damage from a recent flood, and I've seen one or two flying over head, using their fast speeds and durable frames to capture video of places people can't easily go.

Now, that same technology is available at your local Best Buy, and I'm pretty stoked to see about getting one for our family to try out! Solo, the Smart Drone is arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, meaning that you can make up for a bad Father's Day gift with something very, very awesome ! It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone.

The camera is NOT included with this particular drone, but integrating one is easy.  Here are some of the cool features of the 3DRobotics Solo Drone:

  • Retailing at just $999, it has placed advanced drone technology at a price point under $1K for enthusiasts, adventurers, and tech fanatics.  I'm super excited about this!
  • You can allow the Solo to define its own flight, so that you can worry about camera work!
  • 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.
