Searching for the Perfect Selfie Drone

With social media sites like Instagram all the rage these days, everyone is trying to get the perfect photo. Enter the “selfie drone”. If you have ever considered purchasing a drone just for it’s selfie photo capabilities, then you are going to want to read this article.

There’s nothing more annoying than a dad with a camera. I know this not only because I’m a father with a smartphone always one swipe away from a photo shoot, but because my old man documented much of my 1980’s — for better or worse — with a shoulder-mounted camcorder. But later in life, when you can finally appreciate these treasured memories, you realize somebody’s always missing from these photos: The person behind the camera.

After some failed launch attempts, a new gadget has finally arrived to make sure everybody gets in the frame: Selfie drones. Small, camera-equipped drones typically controlled with a smartphone app, they’re like selfie sticks on steroids.

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.

I Tried To Find the Perfect Selfie Drone

While the author compared the Rova and Yuneec Breeze 4k, I have to say, for my next “selfie drone” even though it’s a bit more expensive at $499, I’m leaning towards the DJI Spark.
