The Iris+ personal drone by 3D Robotics

The Iris+ personal drone by 3D Robotics is another awesome drone that is very cool and extremely easy to fly.  The Iris+ offers up to 20 minutes of flight time, and has an optional stabilized Go-Pro gimbal for great video.   One great feature that is very impressive is  “Follow Me”.  This feature allows for a third person view.  Basically, the drone follows you and films you when you are carrying any GPS enabled Android device. This technology keeps the camera pointing at you filming and lets you concentrate on what you are doing.  Now let’s talk about actually controlling this thing.  3D Robotics has come up with an ingenious way of creating a flight plan.  With a free software for Android, IRIS+ users can plan flights by simply drawing a flight path on any Android tablet or phone, which allows for hands-free flight control.  This changes the game, as the learning curve is dramatically reduced and owning and flying this Drone is actually easy for new users that have been on the sidelines afraid of the complexity.
