Father’s Day is this Sunday! I feel like it really snuck up on me this year. We’ve had so many events in our family lately that Father’s Day almost slipped past me. Luckily I remember about it (thanks to writing this post), but I find myself in a pickle. I only have a few days left to get my husband, Chris, an awesome gift from the boys.

Chris is really a simple guy. It doesn’t take much to make him happy, but he’s the most amazing husband to me and step-father to my boys that I really do want to get him something awesome for his special day.

Solo, the Smart Drone, fits the bill perfectly.

best buy drone

Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo(TM) by 3DR. Now is the time to explore for Father’s Day.

Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, just in time for Father’s Day. It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. The Solo retails for $999.

Solo can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the shot. This intelligent drone is also the first to support full control of GoPro(R) cameras and deliver live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts.

Get a FREE Solo Smart Battery (Reg. Price: $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone (Sku: 5354101). Valid 6/7-7/11 at Best Buy. Disclaimer: Offer valid with purchase of the 3DR Solo Drone SKU: 5351035

Do you think the dad in your life would like a Solo?

    I have always been fascinated with drones! What a great buy and I might check this out for a great Father’s Day present!

  4. Heather

    When I first heard of them I was like, huh? I didn’t know they were a real thing.

  5. Crystal

    I’m dying to know where you live! It’s still allowed here. My kids would be so thrilled if we had one.

  6. Pam

    I don’t know if we are allowed to fly them in our town. I do know that we could fly them at my in-laws farm!

  7. Carol Cassara (@ccassara)

    My husband could get addicted. I might have to buy it.

  8. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    I think drones are the coolest thing ever. I can see some great shots for the blog using one of these.

  9. Liz Mays

    I’ve seen a few drones out and about and they are crazy cool. I agree about photos!

    Our whole family would love this! My boys both have GoPros so this would be a great addition to the family.

  13. Nancy

    I think drones are just the coolest. There was one flying ultra-low with the Escape From Alcatraz triathlon the other weekend, when the swimmers were in the water. Like, imagine the footage they got from down that angle. Unreal. I’m lovin’ all this new technology lol!

  14. nicóle @nicky_olea

    That is sooo cool. What a neat gift for the aeronomics or RC enthusiast!

  15. kelseyapley

    I know so many people who would love one of these! I think they look fun to play around with for sure.

  16. Nicole Lutzy

    I agree they look like a blast to play with! I know I would love it myself!

  17. Kiersten

    My dad has one and he loves it! He wants another, and this looks like a good one for him to get next!

  18. Boho Chic (@TotallyTerris)

    I would love to own one of these and it’s on my Christmas list since I’m not a dude lol.

  19. satrntgr

    We would sure love one of these, but they are SO EXPENSIVE!! Hoping when we can afford one that it will be worth it!

  20. Lisa Nolan at Monkey Star Press

    Photographers are going to have a lot of fun with this bad boy! Think of the possibilities!

  21. loisaltermark

    Agree! There will be so many great photos coming out of this!

  22. Valerie

    I think my husband and sons would love to have a Drone but we aren’t quite ready to make that plunge yet. I would love to see one in action though!

  23. Jeannette

    This is one of the best gift ideas ever for dad! I know the dad in my life would go crazy over getting a “toy” like this!

  24. lisa

    This is a really neat toy. But I’m not even going to mention this to my husband! No drones in our house please!

  25. gettingfitfab

    My brother would go crazy for this, as would my FIL ! He would love this to have around the house!

  26. Ourfamilyworld

    That is so cool. My son is the photographer in the family. He would have loads of fun with this little guy.

  27. Nicole Lutzy

    Just think of the amazing photo’s you could get! Definitely one of a kind shots!

  28. Elizabeth @ Being MVP

    This is a great gift. Perfect for the high tech dad!

  29. Jennifer

    We had a microburst hit our area bad last eat and someone sent one of these overhead to check it out and it was so cool!

  30. Valerie

    I can see them being so useful for things like that! How neat!

  31. Emma Garratt

    The Mr is such a big kid he would adore this I’m sure of it! x

  32. Nicole Lutzy

    What an awesome gadget! I would love to get this for my husband so I can play with it! LOL

  33. Amanda

    This sounds like a fun gadget, but I’m not too sure how useful it would be for my husband. We are sticking to booze and tools instead!

  34. thelesleyshow

    I’m going to be getting one of these for my son very soon. His birthday is next month.

  35. Heather

    This thing looks so cool. I know someone who has one and I want to play!

  36. Britney Thompson Mills

    This is pretty awesome! I think my husband would love this!

  37. touristmeetstraveler

    These drones would make such amazing gifts! I am just not sure it is in my price range, really love Best Buy as well.

  38. Jaime Nicole

    This is so far beyond cool. I would love to have one of these – I might even let my husband use it from time to time. Maybe.

  39. alissa4illustration

    Oh my that’s cool! I could see my husband getting more into that than my dad. My dad does love taking photos, just not videos. Travis use to attach his GoPro camera to a Team GeoTrax train, and filmed the whole thing. It was pretty cool!

  40. Mrs. Jilly Fisher

    I am sure my husband would love one to take picture of trains. I am hoping they will go down in price soon.

  41. listen2mama

    This looks so cool. What will they think of next? I could see my family using this.

  42. Chubskulit Rose

    I want this, it would be great to have one! Need to wait till the price go down alittle and save for it.

  43. Brittnei Washington

    Oh my! This is a man’s grown up toy for sure! l have to show this to my husband for sure!

  44. Jeanine

    That drone is so cool. I just learned about these Drones recently and I think my husband would LOVE one of these!

  45. Ai Sakura

    I think hubby would love one! But there’s a lot of restrictions when flying one here in SG I think due to privacy reasons and height of our buildings. I know what you mean that Father’s Day has snuck up on us.. I haven’t prepared my gift yet!Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  46. Crystal

    That is a seriously cool present. I know my husband would have such a blast with one.

  47. jasmine

    These look SO cool!! I know my husband, and my boys would love that so much.

  48. Michele

    That can fly itself? And take the pictures you want? This I gotta see—off to Best Buy I go!!

  49. Michele

    Definitely seems to me to be a Big Boy toy although I might be tempted to try it out myself–of I could get it out of their hands.

  50. Paula Bendfeldt-Diaz (@paulabendfeldt)

    My husband would go bananas with this, what a great idea for a father’s day gift. This looks like it’s really good quality.

  51. toughcookiemommy

    This drone is the perfect gift to give to tech savvy dads on Father’s Day. It is so high-tech that I might want to tinker with it myself.

  52. Gabriel Bregg

    So I’ve been wanting these but couldn’t really think of a good use. Today it occured to me – our dog is an escape artist and a runner, he gets out of leash or harness at least 4 times a week. A drone would be great for chasing him down!

  53. pickettfamily

    What a neat plaything! I’d love to try a drone just to see what I could do with it.

  54. Nolie

    Seriously this Sunday? Crap! Can you tell it REALLY snuck up on me. What a cool gift idea. My husband and kids would have a blast with this.

  55. Amanda Love

    That’s one pretty expensive gift. Not sure I would spend that much on Fathers Day.

  56. Jeff

    I think it would be pretty fun to fly a drone around and get some good camera shots.

  57. Yoly

    You know how some husbands buy the gifts they want for their spouses… that’s how I feel about this drone. Ha! It would be a cool to have one

  58. Crystal

    Ha! I have seen a few gifts like that! I want one too.

  59. savingsmania

    My husband and son would love one of these!

  60. CouponDivaDesirae

    There is no way I could show this to my husband LOL! He would constantly be asking me to grab it for him.

  61. Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey

    I’ve seen videos about this and oh my I am so amazed! I badly want one!

  62. @SensiblySara

    I think my husband would love that drone, but he’d really have to sweet-talk me into spending $1000 for father’s day!!

  63. Theresa

    I’d love to have a drone for myself! I think they look like cool grown up toys!

  64. Michelle F.

    Father’s Day snuck up on my too! What a great gift idea. I love shopping at Best Buy for my husband.

  65. Jacob Fu

    Cool! We have a drone but I haven’t played with it very much. I’m going to have to see what I can do with it.

  66. asbestrecipes

    Thsi looks so cool I wish I coudl get one great for filming videos.

  67. Michelle Hwee

    Oh wow this is awesome! I wish I could see it in real life, it looks pretty cool!

  68. JoyceDuboise

    Ahh! I want one so bad. It is definitely a great Father’s Day gift! I’ve been dying for one to attached my GoPro to. Thanks for sharing! Best Buy is awesome!

  69. Vera Sweeney

    I think this would be so much fun for family vacations! My husband would flip if we got one for him for Father’s day!

  70. loisaltermark

    This would be an amazing Father’s Day gift. Best Buy has the best stuff!

  71. Kendra

    My husband would love this for Father’s Day! Now, I just can’t let him see this post! Lol

  72. tammileetips

    This would be perfect to record parts of our trips when we travel. I didn’t know that Best Buy carries these.

  73. mykidsguide

    Drones are too cool! My family will enjoy this toy a lot. We love taking road trips and we can take lots and lots of beautiful photos with this.

  74. susannabarbee

    What a cool product! Have you seen that Modern Family episode where the boys use the Drone camera and it goes all wrong? So funny. This product is seriously cool!

  75. redheadbabymama

    Drones are all the rage! I’ve seen so many at local parks, and I see my husband eyeballing them…

  76. Tonya

    Oh my goodness! My husband wants one of these in the worst way. I may be making a stop at Best Buy.

  79. Virginia

    How cool! This would be an awesomr fathers day gift!

  80. foundfrolicking

    My husband would actually like this! He just bought a drone a few months ago, but it’s not as sturdy as it could be.

  81. Allison

    This looks pretty cool, my husband would love it! Pretty expensive for a Father’s Day gift though!

  82. Kate K (My Mommy Brain)

    My daughter is in the robotics club at her school and teaches kids how to code and operate robots and drones! This would be a great gift for her!

    I don’t know about my husband – but my son is obsessed by drones. He’d love one of these.

  85. Catherine S

    This looks so neat. I want to get it for my husband so I can play with it. I need to go to Best Buy and check it out.

  86. jessicasimms

    My kids would do some damage with this toy, they would get some great shots that they need though for a little mini series on youtube they are creating.

  87. Debra

    This is so cool! I would love a drone!

  88. chrissy4gordon24

    This is so awesome! I bet my Husband would love this for Father’s Day!

  89. dogvills

    My husband surely like this i want to buy this for him but i do not have extra budget

  90. jenny temcio

    Technology is still knocking my socks off every day when I see new inventions like this! This would be a lot of fun for pretty much everyone.

  91. April G

    I’m amazed at how a piece of equipment that we were arguing about the government using is now something we can buy in our local Best Buy. That’s pretty cool how quickly technology changes.

  92. Amy Desrosiers

    This is one of them dream toys that my husband wishes he had! I would love for him to get one some day too!

  93. Myrah Duque

    Looking at this at first site was impressive, but reading what it does….#priceless!

    That is such a cool robot! The husband is an engineer and he has really wanted to get one of these!

  97. Victoria

    I recently just purchased a starter drone to see how it works before investing a ton of money. I will definitely have to check out Best Buy to see the selection that they have available.

  98. Melissa

    This looks like it would be a lot of fun to play with. Maybe a little too much fun! Glad to know I can just head to Best Buy if I decide to check them out!

  99. tamaralikecamera

    I want it badly! My husband would do some fun with it too.

  100. chanelle

    The drone looks like a great gift for a dad, and would be a fun activity of the boys. It also reminds me of the remote control helicopters they are also flying when you walk around the mall… and are trying to dodge from being hit. ;-P

  101. sosimplystephanie2014

    I LOVE THIS! And so would my Dad and husband!

  102. Christine Brown Cavazos

    I’m kind of glad my husband is technologically inept, saves me from having to buy him cool stuff like this LOL. Seriously it is super cool, my son would love it.

  103. Karen W

    Not sure if my husband would want one, but it looks kind of cool. Never knew there was such a thing

    How cool of a gift is this? I tell you, I don’t know who would be more excited about it; me or hubby. It is just awesome

  105. Ellen ThatChicMom

    Now that’s a remote control toy my father-in-law would go crazy for. Such a fun “toy” for grown men!

  106. kristimaloney

    Both Dads in my life would love a drone! Love that it can deliver wireless HD video! Cool!

  107. littlemisscant

    Forget the hubby… can I have one?
    This would be so much fun to zip up and down the green belt with!

  108. Carly Brydon Anderson

    This Solo Drone looks really cool! I could see my husband and daughter having a lot of fun with it.

  109. moesly15

    It’s going to be interesting to see what kind of regulations they slam on these drones. But until then looks like a fun device.

  110. Pam

    This is so cool. I could see my husband and son having fun with this.

  111. Carol Bryant

    Is it me or has anyone else seen a drone in their neighborhood? They look fun if used properly. Fun gift, too.

  112. Laura H

    I may be dating myself here but I think we entering the “jetson’s world” haha. I love it and that would be so fun to try to fly.

  113. Marcie W.

    Drones are so awesome! I hope to operate one myself sometime soon and my husband would jump at the opportunity.

  114. moscatomom

    Drones look like such a great thing to have. I can only imagine all the things we’d see.

  115. Debbie Denny

    My hubby would have a fit for this. He wants one.

  116. Katherine

    Drones freak me out, especially since they can be used to spy on other people

  117. Dawn McAlexander

    I honestly think those drone things are kinda creepy. I mean, whose to say someone can’t use one to spy in your windows? But, I know guys like them, so they do make nice Father’s Day gifts.

  118. Tracie

    I love the idea of catching great pictures with this thing (although drones do freak me out in general). I think my husband would have a lot of fun playing around with it.

  119. Megan @ C'mon Get Crafty

    Yeah, my husband would definitely geek out over a Solo!

  120. Priscilla Hedlin (@WheelchairMommy)

    This drone looks great! I think someone else posted one like it for Father’s day too! MY husband would LOVE it.

  121. Marina John

    My Husband would love this! He loves all things mechanical, including robots. He has a nice collection, but nothing this extensive.

  122. Kimberly D

    I have always wanted a drone. I think it’s cool that you can record live from it as well.

  123. Fariha N.

    My husband has been itching for one of these. At first I wasn’t really to into it but now I can see the great potential and I want one too!

  124. Courtney

    This might be a big boy toy, but I can definitely see all the little boys gathered around begging for a turn! This is so cool!

  125. Autumn @Mamachallenge

    I think my husband and son would have a lot of fun flying that around! I would love to use it to take pictures with!

  126. Sarah Marturano

    I’ve heard so much about these, I almost feel like this is confirmation. Lol. My husband would LOVE to have this for Father’s Day!

  127. Marina John

    These are so popular. I bet they are extremely hard to fly.

  128. Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert

    My husband would love one of those! Flying toys are so expensive though!

  129. Jenny

    This drone would be so much fun! I think it would help my son with his soccer training, great way to get another visual on his skill.s

  130. Lisa Rios

    Smart Drone is something which my husband would love so much & I am going to give a try at Best Buy to get the best Father’s Day gift for him. I love that it supports GoPro cameras & deliver HD videos as well.

  131. Ora Lee Gurr

    There’s no doubt that Solo Drone would be a big hit with the dads in my life. It’s an extra bargain with Best Buy tossing in a free battery. Imagine the great pictures from above with a GoPro camera and the Solo.

  132. Shelley Zurek

    My dad is alwAys an early technology adopter. I think he would go crazy for this drone!

  133. [email protected]

    I think these are so cool. Would make a great gift!!

  134. yumeating

    This thing is so cool. I want to get one for our family so we can all play with it.

  135. Tonya Blackstone-Coleman

    I saw this recently online and immediately clicked over to Best Buy to check it out. My hubby would LOVE this. Then the price tag…nearly fell out of my chair. I’m sure this is super fun but I will have to save up for this as a possible Father’s Day gift next year.

  136. Stefanie

    This is so cool! I would love to have a drone!

  137. Seattle Travel Blogger

    My dad would really like this. He is all about trying out the new technology.

  138. Toni | BoulderLocavore

    These are so cool! My son was just given one for a birthday and we saw something similar in Tomorrowland. Can’t wait to use it. A very fun Father’s Day gift idea!

  139. dameonsmom

    This is so freaking cool, I’ve gotta have it. I’m sure people would get annoyed with me pretty quick but I’d have so much fun.

  140. mburbage

    My husband would love this! He loves his helicopters but has been after something just like this for awhile! I didn’t even think of checking best buy!

  141. michelle co

    This looks like a cool product. my husband would love this.,

  142. imnotasupermom

    My husband has been a big fan of radio-controlled airplanes for years. He hasn’t made the leap to drones yet, but he is all picky about them and calls them “quad-copters.” Engineers.

  143. thedomesticbuzz

    Ever since I heard Martha Stewart having a drone to look over her property, I’ve wanted one! (Not that I have a home as big as hers). I know my husband could benefit from using one, being a contractor.

  144. mmgmom

    This does look like a good gift. We got my husband a grill and a drill for Father’s Day.

  145. Laura funk

    My sister just went on a trip and they had a drone with them. The video they got was so cool out on the ocean

  146. Holly @ Woman Tribune

    I am constantly amazed by the evolution of the drone. So accessible that we can fly our own now. What a cool Father’s Day gift idea!

  147. desafio6

    My husband added this to his wish list and keep dropping hints as to what he wants for Christmas.

  148. Swa-Rai (@swaraiblog)

    This is super awesome, I’ve been wanting one for a while. Maybe, I’ll stop in Best Buy and see if I can finally add it to my group of gadgets.

  149. Shannon Gurnee

    I love shopping at Best Buy! I think this looks like such a cool gadget!

  150. Penny Struebig

    How fun would it be to have a drone cruising around your party?!? Nice that you get a free battery when you purchase one.

  151. maggiesblog2

    I actually thought about buying one of these for my hubby for Father’s Day, but we don’t have a go pro! So I bought him a Surface Pro 3 instead! He needed a new tablet!

  152. Kaye Fig / I Love Keisha

    This is a great gift idea for the dads out there. For my husband I think I need to get him a GoPro first.

  153. Joanne T Ferguson

    I have always been fascinated by drones as I think they are such wonderful machines, gadgets and it is amazing what they can do! Thanks for highlighting the features and this one is well priced too!

  154. censie

    This would be a perfect gift for any techy! How fun!

  155. Jhoveleen

    This is such a pretty cool gadget. My husband would embrace this once someone handed it to him.

    These scare me and entice me at the same time. I really want one!

    My son would log ego have this drone. What a great Father’s Day gift!
