With the advent of and popularity of drones, not only does everyone want to know what a remote control drone is, what it does, but also where they can get the most bank for their buck!
Before getting into the higher priced drones, I want to introduce you to the best selfie drone. Move over GoPro, Lily is going to pass you by (and video record it too).
What The Heck Is A Lily?
The Lily quadcopter drone is going to give Gopro cameras a real run for the money. Though at the time of this writing, the Lily is not on the market as of yet, but pre-orders are exploding. Lily will be on the shelves come Feb. 2016.
Now, in the Pre-order, they run about $500. or less. Once they are on the shelf, the price will be upwards of $1000. These little drones are super simple to fly. Literally, just toss it into the air and it will video record you while it automatically begins to fly.
They Way It Works Is …
you’ll have a ‘homing’ device worn on your wrist. The Lily seeks that device and records whatever you are doing while flying about some 50 to 250 feet above, around, behind and in front of you.
You can set it or control it as you want to. Throw it off a building, a bridge, from a tall ladder…it really does not matter as it will automatically start to fly long before it touches the ground. No crashes or destroyed property. Yay !
Want to make some home movies while in the mountains? How about kayaking down a river? Just toss it into the water…yes, INTO the water! It will begin to fly up out of the water and follow your every command.
Plus…it’s waterproof !
This is the best selfie camera that gives you what you want.
Toss the Lily into the air and it starts doing it’s thing…filming you and what you are doing.
Check out this short video:
The only Drawback of the Lily is it’s rather short (about 20 minutes) fly time. However, with a 20 minute fly-time, loads of video can be accomplished. An extra battery also is a real plus.
Want it to come back to you? How about landing into your hand? Be sure and check out the video link above.
DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Professional
Though I’ve already commented on the Phantom, let’s revisit it once more. You just can not go wrong with this quadcopter. This drone has been one of the most sought after quality drone for all of 2015.
It has two positioning systems. The first is American GPS along with Russian GLONASS which refers to it’s being able to locate and lock onto more satellites for a more stable responsive type flying.
This is a real plus for beginner/rookie quadcopter pilots. It may be a wee bit more expensive, but if you are only going to buy one, then this is going to be it.
Phantom 3 Says It All
Three versions are ready for you.
Version 1 is the standard.
Version 2 is the Advanced.
Version 3 has the full 4K HD camera rather than the 2.7K HD camera.
