Drones May Look Like Fun, But They're Tougher to Fly Than You Think

Parrot AR BeBop Drone

Episode 1171

Leo says he's really interested in Drones because they're one of the fastest growing technology categories out there, but they are extremely difficult to fly. Still, at the behest of PadreSJ, Leo bought a $40 Syma QuadCopter because it was cheap and if he crashed it, nobody would really get hurt. And in 10 seconds, it disappeared. That was his first experience.

What affordable tablet can I get for viewing the camera on my drone?

Parrot Bebop Drone

Episode 1168

John from Peter Pines Park, CA

John has a Bebop drone with Sky Controller. Leo says that Parrot AR is the company that made drones popular. Leo says that they've done an interesting thing with the Bebop because it has a wide angle camera and can use software to key in on what you want to look at. The camera is f2.2 and 14MP. It can be controlled with a smartphone, or by the optional Sky Controller.
