Shooting aerial footage from a drone is tricky. Pilots have to worry about throttle, pitch, yaw, and roll of the drone. When filming, they also need to consider camera focus and gimbal axis. The 3DR Solo Drone automates those chores, leaving you free to take killer shots of any scene.
Drone maker 3DR has opened its app to developers so they can create software hacks and accessories. For instance, a ballistic parachute might be deployed in an emergency (so your drone doesn’t crash back to Earth). Now you just need to find a subject worthy of your Oscar ambitions.
