Drones are everywhere at the moment, but should you buy one or build one? How do you go about flying them, and where can you do so legally? Here's the guide that tells all.
"It's the book I tell everyone who asks me about drones to to buy"

The only thing growing faster than the drone market is the amount of misinformation about them. Almost overnight popular drones like the instantly reconginsable DJI Phantom have created a billion-dollar industry, with a foothold in everything from movie-making to the toy market.
This book shows you everything there is to know about drones/multicopters/UAVs (including what really is the correct term for them) in plain, jargon-free English.
Find out how to:
· Choose the right drone for you
· Build them
· Fly them
· Capture amazing photos and videos from above
The text is accompanied with clear illustrations and brand-new photography.
Also included is a complete step-by-step project to build your own modestly-priced drone - great as a first step into the world of drones; fun for one, perfect as an educational project for parent and child.
In addition there is a layman's guide to the crucial legal issues around drone flying, and there is an accompanying website with video clips and commmunity links.
This book is all you need to take to the skies!
