It’s not very often these days that consumers use the word “drone” to actually describe a drone. Instead, they’re typically talking about a quadcopter, which needs a human to control it at all times. “Drones” are autonomous by definition, which means that $30 drone toy you bought isn’t really a drone at all. If you’re in search of a real quadcopter drone to help you film action like never before, check out the AirDog Autonomous Action Sports Drone. This revolutionary quadcopter can be remote-controlled just like any other quadcopter, but then it has a true drone function that allows the device to pilot itself autonomously and follow your every move, recording the action the entire time with any compatible action cam you’d like to attach.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • Fully Autonomous Drone with sports specific flight modes
