Can you believe Father's Day is this weekend? If you have a tech loving dad, I've found the perfect gift that will bring the cheesiest smile on his face. The new Solo™ by 3DR is now available at over 400 Best Buy stores just in time to celebrate the big day. Solo, the Smart Drone, is the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. 




This is pretty rad. You can capture those adventure shots with ease as well as capture stunning video.

Solo runs two 1GHz computers — one on the drone itself and one in the controller — connected via a powerful dedicated Wi-Fi signal. This enables Solo to do amazing things, like use the one-of-a-kind computer-assisted Smart Shot modes to fly itself so you can focus on shooting images. Solo is also an all-in-one drone that offers live streaming of HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device.  



You know how you are on an amazing hike or vacation and can't quite capture the view from where you are? Let your Solo do the work for you:  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.

Check out all the neat ways you can use your Solo:

In Smart Shot modes, Solo can fly itself so you can shift your focus from flying the drone to the camera.
Cablecam: 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. 
Orbit: 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.
Selfie: 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.
Follow Me: Go completely hands-free. Solo can follow where you go, automatically keeping the camera on you to capture your every move.
From now until July 11, 2015, you can get a FREE Solo Smart Battery (RV $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone (SKU: 5354101). How awesome is that? 

Do you have a techie dad? Would he enjoy unwrapping the New 3D Robotics Solo Drone this Father's Day?

  9. My husband is very techie but I'm not sure if he'd like this or not. Mostly because I feel like he wouldn't have anywhere to use it! That drone sure is cool, though!
