WAUKESHA, WI — You may call them drones, quadcopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, or multirotor radio controlled aircraft. We call them amazing. And so is DRONE 360, the first magazine to offer total coverage of the breathtaking world of drones.

Few hobbies and few technologies have captured the imagination—or elicited more public curiosity—than drones. “You see drones on TV, YouTube, Twitter—you hear about them everywhere!” says DRONE 360 editor Tim Kidwell. Every day brings a new story about drone deployment for military operations, police surveillance, or search and rescue. Soon, drones could be delivering packages to your front door. Or lifesaving emergency treatment to a loved one.

Drones aren’t just in the news—they’re in our neighborhoods too, as more and more eager enthusiasts are bringing home the latest in affordable RC quadcopters and learning to fly, shoot stunning aerial video, and have fun too.

“At DRONE 360, we’ll provide hobbyists great how-to advice and reviews,” says Kidwell. “But we’ll also go deeper, examining the significant changes drones continue to make to our culture, art, industry, and science.”

In the premiere issue, readers will learn how to fly the latest multirotor copters, take better photos and videos from their drones with tips from pro Allen Farst, and get the latest on UAVs from 3D Robotics, Blade, and Dromida. They will also find out all there is to know about the FAA’s new regulations, see what’s hot at the inaugural NYC Drone Film Festival, and get up close with drones helping fight crime. DRONE 360 brings it all full circle.

The magazine is available on newsstands and in hobby shops March 24, or online at
