The homes, which were part of a subdivision in Santa Rosa, were destroyed by the wildfires that have raged across Northern California this week. On Tuesday, some residents returned to what was left of their homes — many now roofless, wall-less spaces.

“This could be a fight among Democrats if the top two contenders are from the same political party,” Greene said. “It’s going to be brutal. The candidates are substantial. So the key is making it through a June primary. The arguments aren’t partisan. Candidates are vying for everybody. This is a bipartisan effort.”

Like we said above, GDU Byrd Premium 1.0 is much more than a simple new selfie drone… but if you are eager to capture awesome selfies with it, you’re up for a fun time. Obviously, GDU Byrd Premium 1.0 doesn’t have a dedicated Selfie mode, but even without it, I am sure you won’t have any difficulties. That’s mostly thanks to the outstanding gimbal combined with a GoPro Hero 4 camera.

If (like us at DronesBuy) you’re familiar with drones, you probably know what most of them are quite bulky in nature. Even the smallest drones which had been released up to last year (at least the ones which could take good pictures) were quite large. Even the DJI Phantom series, which was about the smallest of the good drones with great cameras required a special luggage or backpack to be carried around. Let alone the initial more expensive drones, such as the FreeFly Alta 8 and the DJI Inspire series – these required specialized cases and transport – and of course, that’s what drove such a niche as expert drone pilots.

is one Syma’s most recent products, it is the upgraded version of the X8. Syma X8HG comes in different packages with different types of camera all produced by Syma. On this list we focus on the 8MP camera version as it has the best quality. The included camera is HD 8MP, capable of recording at 720p resolution with just a slight ‘jello-effect’. It’s an FPV camera and transmits live video via WiFi to a free to install app on your Android or iOS smartphone. It’s a camera made by Syma itself and it does compete with the low-cost sport action cameras. If you prefer to use another action camera the included mount also supports others. Syma X8HG has a very useful feature for photography and videography (Altitude Holder aka Barometer Set Height), basically the drone locks at a specific height, allowing pilot to focus on recording video and taking photos. Syma X8HG has a short range of 70 meters and an average flight time of up to 7 minutes. It’s definitely not the best live camera drone on the market, but for this price it’s good buy.

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.

As some of you already figured out by now, these new selfie drones all kind of look similar to each other… and nothing different can be said about Zerotech Dobby either. It’s a flashy, glossy white drone with a beautifully designed foldable layout.

In terms of battery duration, Autel Robotics X-Star Premium does itself justice with around 25 minutes of flight time per charge. On top of that, the free-range technology allows this camera drone to provide its user with silk smooth HD FPV up to 1.2 miles (cca 2 kilometers) away from the transmitter.

Moving forward to the actual drone, Parrot AR 2.0 has a 720p camera which is pretty solid in terms of image quality. With the help of FreeFlight app you can enjoy live FPV stream and record the footage directly to your smartphone/tablet. On the other hand, biggest downside of this little fella is its extremely short operating range (like I already said above, that’s the biggest downside of all smartphone powered models at the moment) of just 50 meters. On the bright side, you can fly this baby around for roughly 10-12 minutes which isn’t half bad.

Before  I start splashing you down with numbers, you should know that Hover Camera is built specifically for selfies and nothing more than that. It cannot do any sort of exploration and the suggested maximum operating distance is 20 meters. More than enough for selfies but nowhere near any exploration capabilities. Furthermore, the flight time of this birdie goes from 8 to 10 minutes which is just below the standard. However, the package gets you 2 batteries which means you’ll have roughly 15 to 20 minutes of flight time with 1 pit stop.

Sadly (for potentially-amused bystanders) this doesn’t involve sprinting along the road in terror as a whirring hunk of metal zips towards your head like a modern, budget remake of North by Northwest.

Get ready to fly with Polaroid’s PL300 Camera Drone! This iOS and Android-compatible drone has a built-in HD720p Wi-Fi camera that live streams high definition video and photos to your smart phone or memory card. It can record videos up to 10 minutes long at a distance of up to 165 feet. The PL300’s total flight distance is up to 400 feet, total flight time is up to 10 minutes and time required to charge is 170 minutes. Control this drone with a 2.4 GHz remote controller with color digital display (included) at five flight speeds: 9.32 mph, 11.18 mph, 13.05 mph, 18.02 mph and 21.75 mph. The PL300 has a 6-axis gyroscope flight stabilization system with headless mode so pilots need not worry about orientation while in flight, auto return in headless mode, altitude hold, one-key touch for takeoff and landing and calibration trim control.

With superior flying capabilities, this drone lets you soar sky high or fly as low as you can go with a range of up to 50 meters while maintaining exceptional precision and power. Best of all, you can capture all the footage with the built in 1280×720 HD camera and 4 GB memory card.

This is another entry in the cheap quadcopter category. This model has throw-in-the-air startup capabilities, and a pretty cool searching light for flying in the dark. When it arrives it’s ready to fly after a full charge and getting the batteries ready, and the flight time is around 7 minutes after an hour-long charge.

In terms of software features, Holy stone HS300 has altitude hold and one key return. They are not GPS-powered though, so don’t expect pinpoint accuracy. Last but not least, there is a whole deal of accessories waiting for you inside the package. Not only will you get an extra spare of props, 4GB MicroSD card, and a tiny screwdriver… but you will also get 2 chargers. What will you need the extra charger for? Well, obviously for charging the extra battery that can be found inside.

MJX continues their record of long-range drones with camera with X708W. Believe it or not, this cheap drone can reach 80 meters away from the provided controller. It’s crazy! You’ll barely be able to see it at that point. Battery duration is not to be taken for granted either, with up to 10 minutes of flight time. Speed is another virtue, even more so considering this is a brushed model. Yup, brushed motors are inside meaning you will eventually buy replacements. On the bright side, they are really cheap so no need to worry.

Even though GPS is not an essential part of what makes a drone, it is still a very important one… Especially when it comes to selfie drones which greatly benefit from GPS-based features such as altitude hold, waypoints and follow me. Because of that, I highly recommend getting a drone with GPS since you won’t be able to do nearly as decent selfies without it.

Definitivamente, los tiempos han cambiado. Las personas han pasado de ocupar su tiempo de ocio construyendo aviones de papel a pilotear pequeños juguetes aéreos a control remoto. Pero ni la ciencia ficción podría haber predicho que acabarían jugando con aviones de verdad en tamaño miniatura.

Simply take the Byrd up in the air (make sure you calibrate the compasses beforehand) and rotate the camera/gimbal so that it points in your direction. Then, once you are at the best angle, simply press the Take Photo button and you’re as good as gold !

The Wingsland S6 is also controlled by an App Controlled, with a number of fancy modes such as auto follow, flipping in the air, orbit, gesture control, and various automated flight modes, together with the very importance Comprehensive Obstacle Avoidance mode. Simply put, it is designed to stuff in your backpack and take on a hike! Or to take to the beach or even ski trip or something. It’s small,

“Think of SELFLY as your own personal photographer which can take the greatest overview shots,” said SELFLY’s CEO Hagay Klein. “SELFLY can capture the most amazing moments from different aspects and fits right in your pocket – perfect for anyone who hates schlepping selfie sticks and drones.”

But, despite its ridiculous size, this drone has quite a lot of power underneath the hood. You see, it sports a powerful 1480mAh 11.4V 3S LiPo battery which can power it up to 15 minutes of active flying. While this is nowhere near, let’s say, DJI Mavic Pro’s performance, we are talking about an even smaller drone whose competitors are still nowhere near in terms of flight time.

The Dobby is, of course, another foldable drone, as you can see, the arms fold right-in, making it a sleek gadget which you can definitely carry around in your pocket – it weighs just under 200g. The drone is actually quite a popular choice if you want to get yourself a well specced drone at a good price.

Además de las opciones de vuelo normal, avanzada y experta, el Dromida incluye la función “Flip”, que te permitirá realizar piruetas en el aire. Eso sí, es el único de la lista que no posee cámara. (Más información)

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!
