You might think it’s too late to get Dad a great gift for Father’s Day but think again!  It’s never a bad time to give Dad a fun gift.   Best Buy has the 3D Robotics Solo Drone, the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone!  Imagine all the fun videos and photographs you could get with a drone like the kids swimming in the pool, practicing soccer, jumping on the trampoline, Dad mowing the lawn. 😉  Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR.  Now is the time to explore for Father’s Day – and beyond!

3D Robotics’ Solo Drone, the world’s first Smart Drone, has LED lights for directional awareness, an accessory bay, and live HD streaming to your mobile device. The Solo’s familiar video game-style controller feels natural, even if you’ve never flown a drone.  The Solo controller is the only drone controller with its own 1 GHz computer giving the user extraordinary control over the drone.  Pushbutton commands on the controller put both camera and copter at your fingertips.  Take off, land or instantly pause your flight midair with a single touch. Click to start and stop recording or snap a photo, even adjust camera angle while you fly.

Solo’s Smart Shots feature allow users to capture speciality photographs and videos quickly and effortlessly.

Smart Shot modes include:

  • Selfie
    Automatically put yourself in the middle of a scenic aerial pullout shot. As Solo flies itself up and back, your surroundings expand, building and revealing more and more of the world around you—it’s a portrait and a landscape all at once. Record the clip directly to your phone for easy saving and sharing.


  • Cable Cam
    Locked on a virtual cable in the air, you’re free to pan and tilt the camera without worrying about piloting the copter


  • Orbit
    Get an iconic wraparound shot by locking your GoPro® onto any object with the push of a button. Orbit mode puts Solo on a circular track with an adjustable radius. Fly around the circle in either direction and Solo will keep the camera locked on your subject. You can also adjust altitude and flight speed to create dynamic and sophisticated aerial shots.


  • Follow
    Go completely hands-free. Whether you’re taking the road less traveled with your friends, cruising your boat around the lake or just out exploring the world, Solo will automatically follow along in the air. This mode keeps the camera centered on you at all times, capturing your every move.
