Some might say that “the drones are coming,” but the reality of the matter is that they’ve already arrived. Those looking for the latest in state-of-the-art flying machines need look no further than their local Best Buy store for the 3D Robotics Solo Drone – the first-ever consumer drone powered by twin Linux computers. The Solo can “define its own flight,” allowing pilots to focus their efforts on getting perfect shots from their drone-mounted camera. The 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. It has a killer camera gimbal (sold separately) that makes the shooting super smooth for absolutely professional results.

Just look at how awesome this thing is…

What does the arrival of the 3DR Solo tell me? I need a drone. I also need a GoPro (like the new GoPro HERO + LCD that also hit Best Buy this month).

In addition to the sweet ergonomic controller and viewscreen, the 3DR Solo Drone also has a proprietary app for iOS and Android available, making a live view of your shot available right on your mobile device, and even a satellite view of the shot you’re taking. You can even control your GoPro right from the app, changing up the view on the fly, and you can even switch the color of your Solo’s LED lights.
