This is So Cool
Drone-like ‘quad copter’ flown into White House is Amazon ‘Top 10’ toy
From the article:
A type of toy drone flown over the White House gate that crashed on the lawn is a huge seller, making Amazon’s Top 10 list of best-selling toys.
So-called “quad drones” are growing in popularity and can be purchased for under $100, even those with cameras. Larger drones can cost up to $1,000. White House officials said the “quad copter” flown into the facility was about two feet across. It is being described as a DJI Phantom 1 which costs about $450.
I was just thinking of another use for a drone and that is checking that your kids made it to the bus stop safely. I would have loved this when my youngest was in middle school. Though he probably wouldn’t have appreciated it, lol.
