Why are “drones that follow me” so popular nowadays?

As you already might know, drones nowadays have a whole bunch of great features that are making them more stable, safer to fly, easier to control, record smoother videos and similar stuff like that. All that makes drones for beginners user friendly and relatively easy to fly. In the sea of these features, people often take for granted one of the most common ones – the follow me feature. The truth is – people take this feature for granted because they are not aware of the fact that it comes in handy in a bunch of scenarios. They are certain that this ability just allows the drone to follow its transmitter, and at the first glance, they don’t really stop to think about the possible uses that could benefit from it. If you are among those people, I am about to show you what does this ability actually mean and what usage scenarios can greatly benefit from it. So, with this in mind, let us take a closer look at it in order to see what it is all about.

What are the best usages of this feature?

If you are interested in buying a drone with follow me feature, then you will be really happy when I tell you that there are numerous usages that can greatly benefit from it. For example, if you want to catch great aerial footage of your neighborhood without worrying about navigating your drone around like a monkey, simply put it in follow me mode and hop on your bike and pedal around. You will get a crisp smooth footage with minimum effort (just pedaling) which is something you will greatly appreciate afterwards. Another great use for this feature is during extreme sports such as mountain climbing, surfing, windsurfing and similar. It will record a perfect video and you won’t need to manually operate it during the action.

Drone market in USA is growing constantly

Tech trends in the USA are rather interesting occurrences that never cease to amaze me. First off, we had hoverboards which became viral practically overnight. Truth be told, they reached their peak with all those explosive videos so we can’t exactly say that their main marketing did the trick. It was the accidents, after all… After hoverboards, we have had a new tech trend (on the rise, of course) in the form of Google VR and other similar gadgets that offered the very first glance of virtual reality to their users. Their incredibly cheap price and the unique immersive experience paved their way onto the top of tech gadgetry where they remained for quite some time. Nowadays, we are beginning to notice a brand-new tech gadget that is climbing up the ladder. Of course, I am talking about drones which have been a massive craze lately, especially during the course of this summer. Everybody wants one and needless to say, drone manufacturers are battling against each other especially when it comes to prices. For example, a couple of years ago you could not find a solid quality drone under $200 – $300. Now, all you need is about $50 and you’ll get yourself a budget one that will probably not last you a lifetime, but will provide you with a great amount of fun nonetheless.

Drone industry is on the rise

With all of the above in mind, it is safe to say that the drone industry is one of the biggest growing ones in the States… And from the looks of it, that is not going to change any time soon. New drone manufacturers are jumping onto the market like flies and they are bound to spice up things even further. This will, without doubt, lead to better drones at cheaper prices which is what everyone wants. Of course, such scenario will not stop as long as there is such a huge demand for drones on the market (supply and demand is the key here, as is the case with pretty much everything product related), and as you could conclude for yourself, that is not going to happen any time soon… at least not in the States. Holiday season is just around the corner and there is no doubt that drones are going to be among the most popular gifts out there. Mark my words!
