We’ve partnered with Best Buy to share this awesome information!
I’ll be honest: I hadn’t envisioned myself as someone who would own a drone. What would I do with it? Spy on the neighbors? Not my style. Harass my cats? (Actually, that sounds like fun.) But I just heard about the new Solo™ by 3DR, a Smart Drone that can be used for pictures and video. Best Buy has these available just in time for Father’s Day, and I have to say that if you have a dad (or grad, or anyone) in your life who is interested in high-tech gadgets, this sounds like a super-cool gift.
The Solo just arrived at over 400 Best Buy stores this past June 8. It retails for $999, which might sound a little pricey until you realize that it’s the first-ever drone powered by not one, but two integrated Linux computers. The Solo can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the perfect shot (a must for someone like me who needs to focus on one tech-y thing at a time!).
This intelligent drone is also the first to support full control of GoPro® cameras (it seems like everyone has a GoPro these days!) and deliver live HD video wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts. The latter sounds awesome; it has great potential for involving people who can’t be at an event to participate – I can imagine it being great for including far-away grandparents in a family birthday party, for instance.
To make the offer even more tempting, right now, you can get a FREE Solo Smart Battery (regular price is $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone (Sku: 5354101). This offer is valid from 6/7 through 7/11 at Best Buy. (Disclaimer: Offer valid with purchase of the 3DR Solo Drone SKU: 5351035)
