How jealous? I am about to save every penny, nickel and dime to try and buy one of these. The 3DRobotics Solo Drone would so make everyone envious of you.
It is something that would be cool to own, and yes I would need to find a way to get a GoPro Camera (sold separately) to attach to this amazing gadget.
Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR. Now is the time to explore this as a gift idea for Father’s Day.
Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, just in time for Father’s Day. For those Dad’s that don’t have everything yet, this would so be the perfect gift! It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. The Solo retails for $999.
The Solo can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the shot. It might even make you feel like you are taking on missions in the military. 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. Now imagine using this filming that perfect wedding, or maybe you are into extreme sports, and you want to catch everything from above!
[/x_text][x_accordion][x_accordion_item title=”Smart Shot Mode Cablecam” open=”true”]Lock Solo onto a virtual cable between any two points in space. Then, using just one stick on the controller, you can move Solo up and down the cable. This lets you freely pan and tilt the camera while the drone stays in steady flight. Solo can even memorize your first and last frames and pan the camera between them. [/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Smart Shot Mode Orbit” open=”false”]Solo can automatically circle a subject of your choosing, keeping the camera pointed inward to capture an iconic wraparound shot. Adjust the circle’s radius to get the exact frame you want, even midflight.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Smart Shot Mode Selfie” open=”false”]With just one touch, Solo will fly up and away, keeping the camera centered on you so the scenery around you expands in a dramatic aerial pullout shot.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Smart Shot Mode Follow Me” open=”false”]
