The F100G is also a good beginner/intermediate drone for still photography and aerial videography. It comes with High/Low Speed modes, which allow for greater control when it comes to getting the perfect shot.

The Flying School guide will give you all the technical information and practical advice you need to become a skilled drone pilot. We’ll show you how to get the best performance from your Sky Rider, how to take aerial pictures and videos like you’ve never seen before.

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.

Choosing the perfect angle for your selfie will depend on your particular drone and whether or not it has a gimbal. If it doesn’t, you will most likely have to adjust the camera angle beforehand. On the other hand, if it does, you will be able to adjust it while your drone is in midair. Keep in mind though, the camera angle will greatly affect the required flying altitude of your drone. Also, if you own a drone without obstacle avoidance, I am afraid you will be forced to pay a great deal of attention to the altitude of your drone.

When it comes to the drone itself, there’s no doubt it beats all other miniature (selfie) drones on the market. It’s just a tiny bit bigger than your everyday smartphone.

There are other cool options when buying as well. If you buy two of them, you can get them for only $64 each. And if you buy three of them, they are only $57 each.
