Prose: non-fiction, Hobbies

Take to the skies and become a skilled pilot, whatever your budget.

If you think you need a boarding pass to fly, you're really missing out...

Today, drones are everywhere. From film studios to farms, they're in the hands of photographers, commercial surveyors and racers alike.

This fully illustrated book explains how drones developed, where they're going and which one you should choose.

It even includes complete instructions to build both a simple drone and a super-fast FPV racer yourself.

Whether you're flying indoors or out, buying or building, this book covers everything:

Understand the Jargon Flying has a lot of unfamiliar terminology, but this book will make it easy to master.

Business or Pleasure Every type of multicopter you might want is introduced, including explanations of which is best suited for what role.

Get the Best Pictures This edition includes an extended guide to the tech and composition tricks you can use to make your pictures stand out of the pack.

Get the Best Video A new shot-guide shows you how to get the most engaging aerial video, whatever your drone.

Be a Winning FPV Racer There are two complete step-by-step instructions for building your own drones inside: an FPV racer, or a surprisingly cheap wooden drone - both great projects.

Following the worldwide success of the first edition, which has been translated into numerous languages, this second edition is not only fully updated to keep pace with the laws and technology, but also extended to thoroughly cover the fast-growing new sport of FPV drone racing, while still including a comprehensive guide to learning to fly any drone.

Adam Juniper has had a longstanding interest in consumer technology, having written his first gear review for a magazine before he was old enough to drive. He's written and edited dozens of books, especially on photography, drones and now the arrival of the digital assistant.

Obviously deep down he is yearning to say "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" to the computer and be rewarded with the perfect refreshment, but for now he's putting his experience into identifying which of the tidal wave of "smart" gadgets are worth having by living the smart home dream in suburban London.
