Speaking of future pro drone pilots and value. You don’t have to spend $200 plus dollars to pass the UAG Exam. There are plenty of low cost and event free online tutorials. In my case, I used a GooglePlay app call UAS107. Used it for 70% (30% FREE YouTube sectional chart videos) of my prep for the exam; and the app only cost me $4. Passed on my 1st try with an 85%. My total cost to pass the exam:

Selfie Drones come in a variety of designs, most are slim or compact, some are pocket size and foldable, all are designed with portability in mind. They can be easily packed or carried and once launched, position itself correctly, do it’s task and return. Some will even let you share your shots on social media with the push of a button.

Takeoff with your XIRO Mini and get it hovering on approximately 4.5 to 5 meters height. After you get this part done, make sure you turn on image stabilization and sort out everything regarding imaging quality and resolution. Once everything is set up exactly the way you want, navigate to the Follow Me feature (top right) and select it.

The Dobby is controlled by a smartphone app, just like most of the drones we’ve seen here, it has a good battery life of around 9 minutes, plenty of time to get yourself a few good selfie drone shots.

Record your kid’s sporting event, a wedding, or majestic landscapes from a unique aerial perspective with this drone’s built-in HD camera. The gimbal-mounted camera records smooth video, even when the drone is keeping pace with rambunctious kids, and can also take sharp photos in the camera’s hovering mode.

CCD sensors consume more power than CMOS, but they’re a lot more expensive to manufacture. This lead to the majority of small cameras (for example smartphone, tablet, laptop and so on) being CMOS and CCD only taking up a ridiculously small portion of the market. However, this does not mean CCD cameras are inferior in any way. At certain things (such as low light performance) CCD sensors are actually much better than their CMOS counterparts.

It is also responsive to hand gestures and voice commands. Control DOBBY’s flight path by waving your arm – it will follow the direction of your arm’s movements. It can be launched from your hand with a voice command spoken your phone.

The Nixie is a drone you wear as a bracelet. Once you launch it, it flies off, snaps a picture with its built-in camera and flies back to you in boomerang fashion. Co-founder Christoph Kohstall demonstrates a prototype at CES.

The Breeze by Yuneec isn’t classified as a selfie drone, but it works just as well as one that is! At this time of writing, it’ll cost you around $500, which is pretty great for all that you’re getting.

I really like this product. Yes, there is a significant delay. I think in our 4G world, we forgot how slow 3G is. I’d say 10-15 second delay from press to the unit responding. To me, that’s fine as I’m starting the truck 10 minutes before I have to leave anyway. 15 seconds is no big deal. If I need the truck to respond immediately, that’s what my keyfob is for.

Those owners will wear a tracking device to ensure that Lily follows them, with the device hovering in place and trying to recover the signal if it loses the wearer, before landing “smoothly” – an action also taken if it runs out of battery.

Yes, Altair AA108 specifications are great for the entry-level drones with camera market. Its flight stability is marvelous too, making the entire package look pretty good. as for the actual numbers, Altair AA108 can reach all the way to 100 meters away from its sleek controller. Battery duration is excellent considering both the size and price of this cutie. It clocks in at around 10 minutes. Praiseworthy, don’t you agree?!

In this mode, you switch to WiFi mode and connect your smartphone or tablet to the Mavic. This will of course take away some of the fine grained control that you get with the controller but makes things easier to manager by new pilots.

Probably the best thing about Altair AA108 is its brilliant miniature camera that can record in HD. We are talking about a wide angle sensor here (120-degrees FOV) which is perfect for taking shots and videos from high altitudes. Of course, it has no stabilization (hardware or software) so you will experience a bit of jello effect every now and then.

When it comes to its features, it has a dedicated GPS system, one key return function, auto return, failsafe return and much more. Specifications-wise, this little guy works via 5.8 GHz frequency which enables it to fly up to 800 meters away from its transmitter without ever loosing connection. But still, keep in mind that if you have FPV turned on, you probably won’t make it further than 500 meters. Undoubtedly, that’s a great distance nonetheless, especially considering you get a crisp clear image on a 7 inch LED display. With all of the above in mind, there is no doubt that Upair One is a must-have if you are thinking of making drones your main hobby.

While still having the same characteristics of the other selfie drones in this round up, it has foldable design and has the essential follow me mode, but after some examination we can see that the AirDog in reality is in a different league than the other drones discussed here, except may be for the DJI Mavic. For a start it does not come with a built-in camera, you will need to supply your own action camera, also only it takes commands from its own tracker rather than a smartphone, and it is neither small nor light like the others here. Finally, its price reflects all of this “pro grade” direction.

So, you have never operated a drone before and you are finally ready to make your dream come true. But, as soon as you started your “shopping” routine, you stumbled upon more than a few issues. The main one is certainly the type of drone you should look for.
