Reads and New Gear

Hexo+

TIG-gear-patrol-drone2

Some might consider it the ultimate selfie stick. Others might use it create Lord of the Rings-esque panoramic videos. Either way, this self-flying drone is designed to both follow and film you. It works with a GoPro, and can be controlled using a simple-to-use app that gives simple instructions, like follow (close or from afar) and hover (high or close). Unfortunately, the GoPro isn’t included with your purchase.
