myWingMan is a quadrotor drone, which is controlled by the movement of your hands. This novel human-machine-interface feels like you have the telekinetic capabilities of a Jedi knight!

Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
