Have you ever considered getting your own drone? Solo, the Smart Drone is arriving in over 400 Best Buy stores this June! If you didn’t get Dad something he loved, I’m sure getting him this, even late, would make up for it! 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. 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.
Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR. Now is the time to explore the newest amazing technology and get a step ahead of everyone else!

With Smart Shot Modes, the Solo can get some fantastic shots!
Cablecam mode: Allows you to lock Solo onto a virtual cable between any two points in space you choose!
Orbit mode: Allows you to circle whatever subject you choose. Can you imagine the wraparound shots?
Selfie mode: The Solo will fly up and away keeping the camera centered on you. That’s one selfie everyone would love!!
Follow me mode: Solo follows you where ever you go. You’ll be hands-free but still able to capture your every move!
Drones are used for so many cool things these days. I have a farmer friend that uses his drone to check the progress of his crops and a whole lot more.
