There are already plenty of fancy drones on the market with all kinds of bells and whistles. You don’t need to spend a fortune to get your hands on a flying camera though. Take the LiteHawk REO for instance: it is a tiny drone with a wide angle lens. It has auto takeoff, hover, and landing.
REO doesn’t have a steep learning curve. It combines with your phone to let you capture photos and videos. It has collapsible arms, so you can easily take it with you anywhere. The above video shows it in action. More info is available here.
