As you already might know, drones come with a wide variety of features. Some of them are really important while others are just there for marketing purposes. Believe it or not, people often confuse features and specifications. So, once and for all, here is how you can easily differentiate them:
Specifications – technical things that can be measured and are present with ALL drones.
Features – certain special abilities (functions) that drones are equipped with. All drones have a couple of features. Most common features are as follows: gyro systems, stabilization systems, navigation systems, SMART features, safety protection and so on…
When it comes to the important ones, we must include gyro systems, navigation systems, return to home… and of course – follow me drones function. Many people overlook it, most likely thinking it is nothing special. But, oh boy are they wrong! When it comes to actual handy scenarios in which various functions can be used, it does not get much better than the follow me function. Why is that so? Well, stick around and you might just find out!
How does the “follow me” function work?
If you are wondering about how the actual function works, don’t worry I got you covered. As its name suggests, all this function does is allow the drone to follow you around anywhere you go… Well, technically it is following the transmitter, not you, but I guess you could have realized that part on your own. The drone will keep a safe distance from you but will track your every movement which will result in pretty great shots.
Best usages of follow me drones
If you just bought a $20 drone with this function and you can’t think of great usages for it, then rest assured that I will help you with this issue! First of all, you need to understand that, in order to effectively use this function, you need to go outside and do some interesting things. For example, the follow me function excels at recording extreme sports such as skiing, mountain climbing, surfing and similar stuff. In addition to these, you can simple take a walk through the busy streets of your city and order your drone to follow you around like some sort of a pet. It’s like eating a pizza with pineapples – It’s definitely going to be weird at first, but once you get accustomed to it you will love it!
