If you are not a fan of drones, it is a bad time to be alive. Drones, quadcopters and various remote controlled flying contraptions are everywhere. On the consumer market drones used to be fun toys that required some pretty advanced piloting skills to keep them from flying into a tree...or your head!
With Follow Me Mode, Drones Now Fly Themselves
In the last year, technology normally reserved for high-end professional drones has started to make its way onto consumer level drones. Things like rock steady 4K video, GPS and the ability for the drone to follow you around and even automatically return to home are all available for under $700 now.
To test out the newest features we took the Chroma 4K Camera drone for a test flight. The exact model we tested was the Chroma Camera Drone With 4K CG03 with ST-10+ Controller BLH8675.

Yes, That Is My Drone Following Me Around
As the video shows, while the Follow Me mode is not perfect, it is very impressive. How long before everyone has a drone following them around, recording everything they do, in rock steady 4K video? At $700, this drone is still out of the price range of the casual consumer but we are already seeing these high end features make their way onto lower cost drones.
