    Wow what an awesome article – these look right up my son’s ( or if I’m being honest my ) street. I didn’t realize that these types of things had gone commercial yet, they look the part. Tell me, is there are more budget version of the examples you have listed above?

    I feel like the whole concept of drones snuck up on me, and suddenly I was living in the future where drones are a thing. I still don’t really understand what they are! However, this post is pretty cool (as is your whole site); it’s nice to know that someday, when I catch up to technology, there are sites like this to help me figure out which ones are best! 😉

    Hi there. I don’t know much about drones at all. Can you tell me how far the drone can travel away from the person controlling it? Thanks for you time.

      Sure Heather,it all depends on, which drone model you’re flying, because there a lot of different models out there, for example,if you only want to buy the drone (without the RC controller) to fly it through your smartphone you can have a range of 200m to 250m.
      If you buy a drone with the RC controller you may fly it up to 2Km.(some models).Its relative you see..
      I hope that helped you.
      Thanks a lot for your comment.

    Have you seen Lily yet? What’s your opinion? Are there already other drones out there that fly themselves or is this this going to be the first? For my purposes flying a drone while actually doing what it is I’m trying to shoot would be impossible.

      Hi Chris, I haven’t yet had the opportunity to test the Lily camera, because it´s not available yet. According to their site, only after February 2016 they will start shipping the pre-orders.As soon as I have one to test it, I will post a review of it.
      It seems to me that the main feature of the Lily, is the “Follow Me mode”.But only 15M range from the tracking device(You) its not a big thing.Let´s wait to see, because today, you have many drones available that do all of that.The particularity of the Lily it´s,that you just have to throw it , to start playing with it (following you).
      Today you can fly a drone, take photos and do some videos at the same time you are flying it,if you have a radio controller it wil be easier to do it, or if you prefer, you can control it with your smartphone too.
      I hope that helped you.
      I really appreciate your comment.
      Have a nice day.
