The Syma X5C also comes with a forward-facing HD camera (720p) and 2GB SD card. That, plus a few autonomous features like headless mode and one-button flips and barrel rolls, makes this a great drone for beginners.
So now that you know a little about each model, Read on and decide for yourself which of these flying cameras may be right for you. The list below will give you more insight and details about some of the best selfie drones you can buy.
I tried two models: the Rova, a $299 quadcopter with a 12-megapixel camera, and the $399 Yuneec Breeze 4K, a 13-megapixel drone capable of shooting in ultra-high definition. My plan was to set up the drones and take some shots of my family as we sat on the couch in the living room — pretty straightforward stuff. If everything went well, I could envision having photos of birthday parties, game nights, and so on like I had a personal photographer documenting our every afternoon.
What’s the point in getting a selfie drone if the camera sucks? Look for one that has a decent amount of flight time under its belt, one that is easily portable, and one that has a decent camera at the very least.
If your drone has headless mode, it means that you can control it in a completely different way. You see, with standard controls, the orientation of your drone plays the key role. However, when you turn on headless mode, the orientation is taken out of the equation and the controls are relative only to the movements you make on your controller.
Attempting to make the Breeze a one-stop machine for any beginning or entry-level enthusiast, Yuneec has built a low cost drone, then added on a low cost accessory pack that includes a FPV headset. Instead of providing a fully functional headset, however, you are to use your mobile device as the display for their gear.
I hope you enjoyed reading the seven affordable starter drone reviews above. Now it’s time to include a couple of great beginner choices for under $500. Both models are equally priced and equally capable.
Wingsland S6 will rise up in the air and start following you around, allowing you to take the perfect selfie whenever you want. Orbit option is good too, but I suppose it’s more oriented toward selfie videos instead of mere photographs.
Drones aren’t just fun to fly. They can let you capture breathtaking footage, some in high-resolution 4K video. They’re also more affordable than ever, as quality beginner models now cost less than $60. Good camera drones start at a few hundred dollars. More complex drones, starting at less than $1,000, offer customizable and programmable features, turning them into truly autonomous devices that can make their own decisions. Plus, a new class of racing drones has started hitting the scene.
So far, I love this thing. I have only had it not work a few times. It has worked almost everywhere in the northern Virginia and Washington DC area. For $5 bucks a month, I love starting my Bimmer from ANYWHERE! The install is super simple if you already have a remote start that supports this. You may need to use a flasher to update your remote start. Not a typical DIY.
The Drone comes with an AirLeash, which is similar to the smart watch we say with the 7 Hawk4K drone. The AirLeash along with the smart calculations done by the drone allow it to predict your moves, kind of, and to stay on course while you have fun.

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.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a drone that can take selfies and comes with a waterproof controller, then I have good news for you. AirDog ADII sports an innovative controller called AirLeash. it straps around your wrist or biceps and is fully waterproof. Plus, it allows navigating through features and will help you get that awesome wet selfie you’ve been craving for.
Outdoor Edition Wingsland S6 Pocket Drone is the most attractive mini UAV to date. It boasts of such a slim body that it can easily slip into your pocket. Its 13MP camera and 3-axis EIS allow you to shoot awesome 4K aerial videos.
It’s always better for beginner pilots to keep their drones close by, where you can see and retrieve them at a moment’s notice. You’ll also want to form the habit of watching for low battery indicators.
Despite what the ads tell you, drones crash all the time. A good drone will take an unplanned descent and ground interface (aka: a crash) in stride, without damaging the frame. It will also include shields to protect the rotors and electronics from harm.
In the world of racing drones, most machines are highly customized or even built from the ground up. If you are just getting started, building from the ground up is a daunting task, which is why Walkera sells the F210 3D ready to fly. Just open the box and go crash into the wall.

This drone comes with a USB connector to charge it, and it is ready to fly out of the box with everything needed except the batteries for the controller. This one is known to be fast and agile, and picking up extra batteries right away is a great idea to get a bit more flight time out of it. Generally in the “Toy quad” category, this is actually pretty stable for the price, and fun to fly all-around.
Before taking your first selfie with Baby Elfie, I recommend booting it up in headless mode. This flying mode in combination with Baby Elfie’s innovative controller will give you an easy flying experience, no doubt about it. Once your bird is up in the air and facing towards you, you can adjust the angle and height with the controller. Once you’ve set up the stage perfectly, tap the capture button and your selfie will be available afterward.
This is one of the more advanced selfie drones in terms of its selfie-taking ability. It has a camera capable of recording 4K video and on the side of the lens, you will find a LED light which can be activated via the app, making low-light selfies possible.
The ZeroTech Dobby Selfie Drone is an extremely interesting and fun drone to have, it has a good build quality that can take a few bumps and bruises gracefully, and despite not having an English manual the app is indeed in English and the controls in general are not that hard to grasp. The good thing about ZeroTech is the support and continued development of this great little quadcopter in the form of added features with each new firmware release. It is not always that you find a Chinese “toy” manufacturer giving support to their products.
The price is significantly higher than the standalone drone, but the gimbal itself is amazing and will serve as a great aerial photo platform, especially if you have a top-quality action camera. For those of you who don’t know what a gimbal is, please refer to the FAQ section above. Furthermore, features aren’t to be taken for granted either. 3DR Solo is a true smart drone in every sense of that word and doesn’t just possess GPS but Follow Me, Waypoints and plenty other features that ensure its competitiveness on the market.
The new CineCore 2.0 image processing system on the Inspire 2 makes the Zenmuse X5S capable of capturing 5.2K 30fps CinemaDNG video and Apple ProRes video as well as 4K 60fps using H.264 and 4K 30fps using H.265 (both at 100Mbps).
Even in moderate winds, the Syma X5C held up really well during my test flights. This exclusive package comes with an extra battery, effectively doubling your flight time. You’re also getting extra propellers as well.
Parrot’s Mambo quadcopter has a set of pins on top that allow for attachments that include a small cannon, a grabber claw and now a 720p HD camera. The camera can record to a microSD card, but more importantly it lets you pilot by FPV or first-person view by streaming to your phone.
