Just before my accident I was close to buying a drone.
Once I was starting to get a little more movement in my left arm and could control an iPad I started to research drones that could be controlled from a phone or a tablet.
Droning on a bit ...
Parrrot Bebop 2
Thats when I found the Parrot Bebop 2. This is a great mid-range drone that takes decent photos and videos.
It can be controlled via Virtual Joysticks on a tablet or phone and has great flight planning software.
I was able to use the software to plot a course with waypoints and then just send it off on its way. It would fly it's pre-programmed course and come land where you had told it too!
This was great as I could plan the course at home in the warmth and then when I would travel to location I wouldn't even need to leave the van ! My ground crew (usually my Dad) would set the drone up and I would upload the flight plan and off it would go.

So this is one of my first videos, It was flown with a flight plan shown below.
