·         Best Buy is the destination for drones! Including the new Solo™ by 3DR. 

 Now is the time to explore for Father’s Day! 

Drones are amazing! The ability to control and capture amazing photos while using the latest, and greatest, technology. Imagine dad's Solo™ , flying over the end of the season game, the home run hit, the first time  your little one learns to ride a bike. 

Capturing those moments from the air! 

Imagine that same Solo™ above the boat when he catches that huge, once in a lifetime fish, or the view from above over that valley by the mountains you just hiked. And imagine the creativity and views that can be shot with the  Solo™ for the father/daughter dance at his little girls wedding. 

The possibilities are seemingly endless. PRICELESS shots that you just can't get any other way. 
 
Right now you can get a FREE Solo Smart Battery (Reg. Price: $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone {Sku: 5354101}
Valid 6/7-7/11 at Best Buy.
Disclaimer: Offer valid with purchase of the 3DR Solo Drone {SKU: 5351035}
In Smart Shot modes,  Solo™ can fly itself so you can shift your focus from flying the drove 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 the subject of your choosing, keeping the camera pointed inward to capture an iconic wraparound short. Adjust the circle's radius to get the exact frame you want, even mid-flight. 
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. 


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. 

Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, just in time for Father’s Day. 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.

What amazing event would you like to capture with a  Solo™?

    3. I think those flying drones are so awesome to play with. Hook on a GoPro on that bugger and look at it fly. I've seen really cool youtube videos being created from it too. I know this will blow up big time and a lot of companies are going to want their properties filmed with one, I mean... think of how awesome it would be to have that featured on a website. I love it.

    21. Now this is a Father's Day gift. I'm not sure if my step-father would like it but I know I'd have a good time with it. Drones are becoming increasingly popular and I think it would pair well with my travels if it has stellar camera options.
