My Friend MAX – the Jumping Drone #MiniDronesBigFun

Father's Day is around the corner and like every year, my father is just happy to hear from or see me (lucky me!). My kids are coming to the age where they have started to bring home things for Father's Day. Last year it was a rock, literally and I love it! It's placed in our hallway and I appreciate it everyday!  But as children get older the gifts start to change from crafts to the "typical" Father's Day gift.  Hangers full of ties worn less than 10x per year. Drawers of socks that are athletic, formal and thermal. Underwear for all seasons and occasions. 

All these are great and if you want to be practical, I would go for the socks and underwear. ūüėČ

Now if you really love him and you want him to give you that look where you know you really touched his heart? A drone is a sure thing, and they are not just the flying type these days. They are on land and sea too! I've been playing around with this PARROT MAX MiniDrone and I will be spending some time playing with it and playing pranks or games with the kids. It can do all sorts of tricks and it streams back to your ANDROID or APPLE device which is also your remote. Sessions can be stored on your profile where you can see all your "pilotings" in your gallery. If you have a headset you can also speak through and hear from your MAX MiniDrone. It charges pretty quick  and there is an actual menu that provides details of your last charge. A full charge gives you about 20 minutes of play.

The online features include things like road or flight plans that you can view or create.  I'm using the FreeFlight 3 app found in the Play Store to control MAX. There are many tutorials and resources about this model and the other drones online.  Check out the entire Parrot lineup HERE. What are some drone sites you recommend to get this dad engulfed in a new hobby?

I am excited to be able to giveaway a Parrot MiniDrone to a lucky reader to give to the special Dad in their life.  Good Luck!

    My husband would be so in to this. My son and him were just talking about drones the other day, we have this big open field across the street from our house, they see another dad and his son flying it around there all the time and I know they look with jealousy in their eyes. LOL
