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.
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?
