Drones are becoming more and more popular each day. Once just an imaginative prop in sci-fi movies, drones are now very real and have quickly made their way into the mainstream marketplace. Now the everyday consumer has the ability to purchase their own mini aircraft. Newcomers will find, however, that flying a drone isn't easy, and there's a steep learning curve to getting it right. Luckily, there's a new type of drone that's emerged, and it can be controlled by simply waving one's hand. Gesture-controlled drones allow entry-level operators to experience the excitement of flying without the pressure of learning how to operate the sometimes complicated RC controls. Many of these hand controlled drones are for children, but there are a few made for experienced flyers.
