I don’t know about your husband, but when mine hears the word “drone” he is all over it. A few months ago our neighbor had a drone and flew it passed our yard and the entire neighborhood went nuts, even me. It was really, really cool to see. I was intrigued, as was my husband.

Best Buy offers only the most innovative products and the  3D Robotics Solo DroneSolo is definitely at the top of the list. Why? Because Solo is a smart drone that’s designed for easy flying and built to capture stunning video and photography with your GoPro camera. It runs on two 1GHz computers — one on the drone itself and one in the controller — connected via a powerful dedicated Wi-Fi signal. Solo is also an all-in-one drone that offers live streaming of HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device.

Cablecam: Lock Solo onto a virtual cable between any two points in space. Then, using just one stick on the controller, you can move Solo up and down the cable. This lets you freely pan and tilt the camera while the drone stays in steady flight. Solo can even memorize your first and last frames and pan the camera between them.

Orbit: Solo can automatically circle a subject of your choosing, keeping the camera pointed inward to capture an iconic wraparound shot. Adjust the circle’s radius to get the exact frame you want, even midflight.

Selfie: With just one touch, Solo will fly up and away, keeping the camera centered on you so the scenery around you expands in a dramatic aerial pullout shot.

Follow Me: Go completely hands-free. Solo can follow where you go, automatically keeping the camera on you to capture your every move.

Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, just in time for Father’s Day. It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. The Solo retails for $999.

Solo’s computers also make flying easy for beginners, so now worries about not being able to control the drone. Its smooth and powerful satellite-guided flight ensures Solo’s position is always accurate, and Smart Shot modes keep Solo locked onto predetermined flight paths. My husband loves the video game–style controller because it makes control easy since he is familiar with it.

The controller features one-button, automatic flight controls including take off, land and return home. And if you panic, don’t worry. The pause button lets you stop the Solo with the touch of a button. So basically, it’s fool-proof!
