GoPro Drone for $679By Rocky Thompson on January 31st, 2013
The beauty of technology is that as it ages and gets more widely adopted, it gets so much cheaper. A few years ago the only helicopter camera drones were bought in abstruse kits online for extraordinary amount of money and required massive amounts of know-how and programming to run. Now DJI Innovations is selling the Phantom Aerial Quadcopter kit for $679. It claims to be user friendly, and says you’re able to fly within minutes of getting it (after you charge it, I’m sure). All you need to do as add a GoPro. I can’t wait to see the millions of YouTube uploads of people crashing their drones into lakes.
