Hey, we can’t mention selfie-drones without mentioning the drone which made selfie-drones popular. The Mavic. The great thing about this drone though is not only is it portable, it’s also great if you’re actually a pro-photographer or videographer. This is a professional-level drone – but yes, it does take selfies too!
But these last few months – we’ve seen a completely new twist in the drone revolution. It started off primarily with the DJI Mavic and eventually, DJI followed up their success with the DJI Spark. Both of these drones feature high-specifications cameras and technology, WITHOUT sacrificing the portability.
Specialized Functions – The drone also has one key take-off & landing, 3D flips & rolls, High / Low-speed modes, LED lights, gravity sensors & gyroscope, camera reverse, 3D video, emergency-landing and lots of other functions.
As the holidays and birthdays come and go, many consumers are on the search for cheap drones, and the offerings as of late are much more plentiful then they were just a year or two ago. Various manufacturers are giving it a go to get a corner (or any share) on this type of market, and many scores of excited owners are carrying home a brand new cheap beginner quadcopter.
And of course, given that it is fully controlled by an app (available for Android or iPhone), pushing the photos or videos you’ve taken from the drone to Facebook or your favourite social media network couldn’t get any easier.
Ever wonder what a bird’s eye view looks like? Made to go above and beyond, the Flyington takes you on a ride of a lifetime. Remotely controlled through an app on your smart device, the Flyington does so much more than just fly. It takes real-time pictures (including selfies) and videos, features aerobatic flight, real-time camera transmission, and phone-tilt control. Small in size but big on thrills, the Flyington is loaded with a ton of flying fun! With a user-friendly interface, you’ll be soaring to new heights in no time!
One downside of the Dobby selfie drone is that the camera does not really have a gimbal. The only control you do have over the camera is by choosing one of the four preset positions, and this needs to be done before flying because you cannot control the camera. Also no gimbal means there is no physical stabilization built in so they depend on electronic image stabilization just like a typical smartphone, which is generally fine for what this drone is intended for.
This hexacopter has a 2MP camera with a micro SD slot, and is known for having a bit longer of a flight time than others in the good cheap drones category, at about 11 minutes in the air. It’s a little bit bigger than many common nanoquads on the market, and the look is not one that has an exposed-board feel: the arms light up to give it a unique flair.
Fully integrated with the smartphone app which controls it, you’re ready to upload your pictures as soon as you take them. Once you’ve taken your photos and videos with the Yuneec Breeze, downloading and sharing via social media is quick and easy. Just select the photo or video you would like to share and choose which social network you would like to share to and you’re done – all without leaving the app interface. It’s that simple.
If you’re a DJI fanboy then I am sure you’ve already heard about the DJI Spark pocket selfie drone. This amazing new drone is the talking point of entire drone industry and there’s no way you could’ve missed its announcement. So basically, we are talking about the smallest DJI drone yet… yup, even smaller than the Mavic Pro.
We get this question from first-time users (and would-be users) a lot lately. So, we might as well answer it right away. So, if you have a strictly LOS flying drone without any sort of an FPV system onboard, you will have a tough time knowing when you’re in the camera frame. Of course, you can get a feel for it every now and then, but there’s no guarantee that you’re right an that your selfie will turn out as awesome as planned.
Apart from that, Yuneec Typhoon H also comes with an ST16 controller with a built-in 7-inch touchscreen powered by Android. It features intuitive controls and, believe it or not, it’s quite a breeze controlling this beauty. When it comes to aerial photography drone, Typhoon H is as good as they come with a stunning 4K stabilized camera. Feature-wise, it sports a total of 8 smart flight modes, automatic takeoff/landing, GPS navigation and even retractable gear so you can move the camera in 360 degrees without it ruining the field of view.

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.
Where this drone is better than the Dobby is that it does have obstacle avoidance system in the form of built in sonars, which can detect close by objects to prevent the drone from crashing into them. It also has a downward facing camera that takes 100 frames per second allowing it to know exactly where it should hover even when it is indoors with no GPS signal.
Designed by one of Italy’s leading car design firms, Pininfarina, whose clients have included Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Maserati, the Sky Rider Drone combines ease of use and portability, allowing you to experience the thrill of flight.
A drone battery offers 5–25 minutes of flight time on a single charge, and can take an hour or more to recharge. But oftentimes the battery can be easily removed and replaced with a fresh one once its charge is spent. To spend more time in the air each session, you should purchase one or more extra rechargeable batteries that are compatible with your drone.
