Hands down one of my favorite bands are The Piano Guys. I absolutely adore their ability to create an endless array of music using just two instruments. Couple that with their music videos and it’s a beautiful combination. Many of their videos have these fantastic shots from overhead that are so fun. After a bit of research, I found that these views are created using drones. Fortunately, Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new 3D Robotics Solo™ Drone by 3DR.
Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8 and is the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. I have to say I love it when technology is easy to use!
The 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.
For a gadget lover like me, that means I need a drone of my own to create stunning panoramic landscape images when I travel. Plus, who needs a selfie stick when you have a drone that can get a photo of you and all the spectacular landscape behind you?
I can think of so many potential uses for a drone. The possibilities are endless. Of course, for me, I would want to use it in a low population (read: no other people around), but I often travel to out of the way places and this would be great fun to use.
Right now Best Buy is offering a FREE Solo Smart Battery (reg. price $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone (Sku: 5354101) until July 11, 2015.
The Drone retails for $999
