Engadget Review

At a technological level, the R1 is truly impressive. It eschews flaky GPS or wearable trackers for smart 3D vision tracking, and it works! This is the first “true” follow-me drone that delivers obstacle avoidance from all angles at speed. This, combined with ease-of-use and a high quality camera, make it a tantalizing proposition. Sadly, one only available to those with deeper pockets.
