In the past few years, we have covered a bunch of awesome drones and flying robots here. They keep getting more affordable every year, so more people are buying one. If you are planning to buy a drone, you will need to do you homework and learn a bit about the laws and the skills required to operate such a device. The Drone Pilot’s Handbook by Adam Juniper could be what you need.
This is an elegant handbook with fun graphics and enough tips to get you started. It covers the basics of flying cameras, piloting skills, racing, and drone missions. The book is not thick enough to take a year to finish but comes with invaluable information and quick tips to give you a crash course on UAVs.
The Drone Pilot’s Handbook does not make you a genius drone pilot, but it does cover enough info to help you choose the right quadcopter and avoid common mistakes. The book is expected to be released in a few weeks.
