Whether you’re heading out on a flying adventure or storing your drone in the closet till your next session, don’t just shove your expensive equipment in an old duffel bag. Protect your investment with a quality backpack or case designed specifically to hold your drone. Your case should have a padded, foam interior with cutouts to snugly fit your drone and accessories, safeguarding them from drops and bouncing around in transit. If you plan to hike long distances with your case, choose one with dual padded straps to keep you comfortable on your journey.

That’s right, this article is about the collision of two trending titans, the selfie world, and the drone world. The combination of ‘drone’ and ‘selfie’ has brought about a new viral sensation known as ‘dronies.’

When it comes to features that rely on DJI GO app (both iOS and Android controlled drone although you can expect a more fluent experience on Apple’s devices), Spark shines with full light. The main smart features on this little fella are TapFly and ActiveTrack which allow you to set up waypoints for Spark to follow or select an object/person as a point of interest for tracking purposes.

Mavic Air into the Foggy Morning Sky. I spit up the video as I stated but this is by far one of the coolest videos. I don’t necessarily recommend trying this with your own because of all the condensation that was on the mavic once I brought it back down.

As such an easy to fly drone, it is safe to recommend for beginner pilots. You really do have to put in a little effort to crash this thing, not too much effort, but some. The default flight when your hands are off the controller is at a very stable hover. There is also a ‘Pause’ button on the remote that halts everything and puts the drone into a hover.

In terms of still photography and selfies, the Mavic can perform single shots and burst shooting at 3/5/7 frames. This quadcopter also features Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) with 3/5 frames at 0.7, EV Bias and Interval Still Photography Modes.

A common complaint is about the flight range, advertised at 200 ft. Some complain that you’re lucky to get half that. To be fair, though, flight range depends on factors like battery power level and signal.

ZEROTECH, a leading innovator of smart drones and technology, has announced that its HESPER Advanced Pocket Drone will be launched in the late summer, features 4k imaging capabilities and 18 minutes of flight time.

It is notoriously difficult for cellular carriers to provide adequate coverage to such large gatherings: cell towers often get overloaded with voice and data traffic during these events. So carriers normally bring in trucks loaded with equipment that helps extend cellular coverage to large gatherings.

If you’re thinking of making short aerial videos or wanting to be a professional aerial photographer and need some sort of a video editing software to clamp them together, perhaps looking at the small list below would do you a world of good. Keep in mind that the list order is irrelevant as there are many different aspects that make up a good program.

Package Contents: 1 x Quadcopter, 1 x USB Cable, 2 x CW Propeller, 2 x CCW Propeller, 1 x Phone Holder, 1 x Screwdriver, 1 x Transmitter, 1 x Card Reader, 1 x Camera ( with 4G TF Card ), 1 x ( English ) User Manual

is another amazing drone produced by 3DR Robotics. A very fast and best drone 2017 with a max speed of 89km/h. It features useful photography and videography features such as Selfie Mode, Orbit Mode and Follow Me mode, as well as Auto-Pilot. It doesn’t include a camera in its package but is Compatible with GoPro HERO3, 3+ and 4; optimized for HERO3+ and 4, thanks to its 3-axis stabilized gimbal. Flight time is around 20 to 25 minutes and control distance is 800 meters.

The most obvious one is certainly the camera. If you’re going to take awesome aerial shots and videos, your drone needs a top-notch image sensor. Depending on your budget, you should ideally look for stabilized cameras that can capture FHD or even 4K Even though the old myth that claimed “more megapixels equals higher quality” is wrong, you still aim for at least 12mpx sensor. Don’t take stabilization for granted. Especially if you’re thinking of recording videos. Motorized gimbals are more important than most of you think. If you go for a drone that doesn’t have one, you’re up for a rough time shooting anything decent…

Gimbal a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis. For drones is used for photography and videography. Used to mount everything from small camera lenses to large photographic telescopes. Most developed ones are designed to give the camera operator the independence of handheld shooting without camera vibration or shake.

So, with everything stated above, the conclusion is basically coming on its own – with the massive popularity of selfies, it was just a matter of time before first selfie-oriented drones hit the market. And it did not take them a lot of time. First, there were those tiny toy-grade drones with awful cameras which were marketed like selfie drones. Then, there was an uprising on the market with the introduction of Zerotech Dobby, Yuneec Breeze, DJI Spark and so on… This revolution is still going on and it does not seem like it will end anytime soon, especially with talks of DJI Spark 2 hitting the shelves next year!
