It’s not often that I get to do reviews of books on this blog, because it often takes me several nights to get through a book, and, like many, I don’t read much. The Drone Pilot’s Handbook by Adam Juniper is a fun read that is really for all ages, and it is about an interesting habit that a lot of people are getting into with drones.
Yes, the drones of quadcopters, hexacopters, and other models are starting to become very commonplace, and it is good to have a book about how to use them. Not only that, it shows some information about how drones actually work, but some methods about how to manipulate the controls.
It will also show the user how to create a better flying drone, and it is quite interesting. Another part of the book is devoted to missions that drones can handle, along with some photography. There is also a section on drone safety as well.
The best part about the book is the illustrations. They are very minimalist, and yet they really capture the fun that is droning, and now I wish I could afford at least several of them to try out.
The Drone Pilot’s Handbook will appear on Amazon on May 3, 2016, so you should check it out when it gets there, or get is somewhere else.
