Watching our boys play soccer is one of the highlights of Alfie's and my weekend. From time to time, we bring a video camera along to the soccer field to capture their games -- but setting it up and recording is such a hassle that it completely ruins our enjoyment of the game, and the resulting video is usually poorly shot because our tripod is just not high enough to cover all of the action over the entire field.
The other day we were at the soccer field and saw a dad piloting a drone right over a field of boys warming up for their next game, and and light went over our heads. A drone with camera is really the best solution for recording a soccer game! What an awesome idea -- you can capture the entire field and zoom in to get closeups of your child taking that perfect shot on goal.
With Father's Day coming up, there's no better occasion to gift the dad in your life with a drone -- and there's no better place to get a drone than Best Buy! Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR, the latest and greatest hi-tech drone. It's the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers -- one on the craft and one in the controller -- to help users get that perfect shot.
- Solo's automated flight control makes it easier to control the drone and spend less time flying, more time filming.
- Solo is the first to support full control of GoPro® cameras.
- Solo lets users deliver live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts.
