What do you think of when you hear drone? Would you ever think of it as something you can own? Well now you can. Whether this is for tech-savvy you or the perfect last minute Father's Day gift, the new 3D Robotics Solo Drone is at Best Buy. Solo, the Smart Drone, has arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores! It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone.
Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo by 3DR. The Solo retails for $999, and can define its own flight. The Solo was designed for easy flying, and built to capture stunning video and photography with your GoPro Camera. With features like push-button flight, Solo makes it simple for anyone to get off the ground quickly. And with computer-assisted Smart Shots and the GoPro frame, you'll be able to capture professional-style aerial photos and video in Full HD quality. How cool is that?!
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.
