If your Dad (or husband) is anything like my husband, a drone is on his most wanted toy list. We actually bought a cheapo drone for him at Christmas that lasted about 30 minutes, but that’s a whole other (sad) story.

I was excited to see the new Solo™ by 3DR Drone at Best Buy. It’s the first ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone.

When I say anyone, I mean anyone. 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 delivers live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts.


Seriously, how cool is that? Our cheapo took video but we had to wait to plug it into our computer to see if it even recorded let alone if it caught anything cool.

Think of the possibilities. Hours of fun for Dad… I could see my husband wanting to video things like the house from above, him walking through the woods, the kids playing and on vacation this could be a game changer.

I’ve come to realize that I should just start at Best Buy next time I decide to buy something like this. Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR. The Smart Drone is now available in 400 Best Buy stores, just in time for Father’s Day!

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

    This is a very high powered Drone that I think is amazing! I really like how easy it is to use. I bet my nephew or son in law would love this for Father’s Day!

    My brother has a Drone, and he loves it, uses it a lot too. It really does capture some amazing pictures and video, this one looks like a really nice designed one.
