Unlike most recreational camera drones I've tried, Hover is incredibly easy to control. Unfold it, tap the power button, fire up the smartphone app, and you're piloting via virtual joystick on the screen. Using a combination of downward-facing sonar and AI, it simply floats in position wherever you place it. What's more, it doesn't erratically zig-zag and clip passersby with its sharp blades when you inadvertently over-exert the controls in one direction or another. Instead, its four propellers are safely encased in a carbon-fiber cage, and it gently moves up, down, and 360 degrees around on command, snapping 13MP photos and near-4K video at the tap of a finger.
