Unfortunately, there is not a single waterproof selfie drone out there. Actually, there might be a few of those toy-grade drones with cameras, but their sensors are awful and they’re not exactly made for selfies. So, yup… if you are looking for a waterproof selfie drone I am afraid you will not have any luck.
The buttons on the remote control are relatively simple to master and straightforward making this mainly model perfect for both drone beginners plus more experienced RC flyers. A great feature is that you can turn on your camera once the aircraft has flown an appropriate height, extending the flying time and saving precious battery power.
Now it is back to you, what did you think? Do you agree with my recommendations or did we miss a great drone that we shouldn’t? Please tell us in the comments below and do not forget to share this article on social media.
Light characteristics on the drone are extremely impressive, the quad flies much smoother than a whole lot of quads we’ve tested it is very easy to fly it maintains an extremely stable hover especially in the stability mode you can do flips & all that and it’s very agile when you need it to be so you can actually switch it into the high rate mode and go do a lot of high-speed flying.
If you are a first-time flyer and you are finding it difficult to get used to standard drone controls, perhaps headless mode will give you a better chance of getting things right. However, think of headless mode as a learning mechanism and don’t use it all the time since it will skew your muscle memory and you won’t be able to learn proper controls in the long run.
This is my first quadracopter purchase, so I didn’t know what to expect. So far, I’m very pleased. There’s a learning curve for the novice flyer. I planned use to inspect the roof, but have found many other more fun uses, such as chasing my kids through the house and yard, all while capturing the moments with the camera. The images are surprisingly stable and clear too. I just wish the battery life and strength where better. All in all, its good for the money!
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.
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 both the size and price of this cutie. It clocks in at around 10 minutes. Praiseworthy, don’t you agree?!
The Mavic Pro by DJI is an absolute classic. At this time of writing, it’s currently priced at just under $1,000, but don’t let the price sway you! It has quite a bit that the majority of other drones don’t have.
Remote start, secure, and GPS track your vehicle from your smart watch using the DroneMobile Android Wear app. Simply download the smartphone app and the watch app will automatically download onto your Wear device.
Thank you for the comprehensive and informative guide to the world of drones. I am thinking of trying to become a drone photographer in the pursuit of the American dream, money. Sadly my affordable price range won’t alloy for the video quality I need, so I’ll have to save up and get a good one. Good article, thanks again BT
Additionally, with its 4K Ultra HD camera sporting a 1-inch sensor, professional grade photos/videos should not be an issue, especially considering the fact it can shoot slow-motion footage in glorious 4K resolution if you need to capture some dramatic shots. Combine all of that with incredible gyro stabilization accompanied by a motorized gimbal, and you got yourself a great drone. DJI Phantom 4 Pro is one of drones compatible with FPV Goggles.

The UDI U818A is a fun and easy beginner quadcopter with a camera. This is a good choice if you are looking for a toy-grade drone to shoot some video for fun, and the quality of the footage is not that important.
Starting off with the hardware, inside of Altair AA108 you will find a 1S LiPo battery, a basic 6-axis gyro stabilized FC and 4 brushed motors. This battery is capable of keeping it up in the air for approximately 10 minutes which is not half bad considering the price this beauty goes for. Furthermore, the motors are actually pretty damn powerful and (considering the lightweight design of this birdie) are able to provide good thrust/weight ratio. However, Altair AA108 is not a racing drone so don’t expect neck-breaking speeds. Operating range is solid too, going up to around 100 meters in a clear, unobstructed area.
is one of my personal favourites. It tops this list for a wide variety of reasons. First of all, let me start by saying there are different package versions of this quadcopter in the market, here we discuss the version with a wide 5MP camera. This wide angle camera of 5MP is one of the best for the current price in the market and can be detached from the drone is not build-in, so you can fly without camera if you want to. Expect very good image quality with no “jello effect”. Besides that, Tarantula X6 has an amazing control distance of 300 meters! Way above the average control range for drones within this price range. Flight time is also above average, a good 8 to 10 minutes of pure enjoyment! It also includes awesome features such as IOC (Intelligent Orientation Control) which works much like an inner compass. Allowing features such as Return to Home. Definitely one of the best for its price. In this price range, this is definitely one of the best drones for filming from air.
Also, you may want to consider learning to fly using a drone simulator. We’re pro-simulator over here and recommend buying the Great Planes RealFlight Drone Simulator. Great physics and many models to choose from. There’s also this free FPV simulator if you’re interested in learning how to race 🙂
