If you’re a fan of model trains, or just like putting things together that can go fast or fly, check out the Aerowood Wooden Drone. This DIY drone is the first wooden modular drone of its kind. The best part is it’s customizable.

 

The drone kit comes with 184 pieces of eco-friendly wooden components that can be assembled in a variety of ways to help you create a one-of-a-kind drone. Only your imagination is stopping you from creating the drone of your dreams, and maybe a little bit of technological know-how. Thankfully, the kit also comes with four frame settings for those who aren’t quite ready to let their inner child run wild. You can even D.I.Y. your own remote control.

 

The Aerowood Wooden Drone is equipped with a 720P HD camera and real-time transmission, allowing it to synchronize with and transfer images to your smart device in seconds. Some additional features include one-key return, which allows you to set a location for your drone to return to with one click. There’s also stable hovering and the ability to set height and distance limits so you never lose it by going too high.

Travelers will appreciate the drone’s lightweight design and its ability to take incredible photos from above, anywhere in the world. The Aerowood Wooden Drone retails for $359 and early shipping has already begun. Check out the website for more information on features and how to order one of your own.

What To Do Before Boarding a Plane

Boarding a plane seems like an easy enough process, but before settling into your seat for the next few hours or even an entire day, be sure to remember these pre-boarding rituals that will ensure a more peaceful flight.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
