The days of struggling to capture aerial selfies are officially over. Introducing the Airselfie drone – a mini drone capable of taking group shots 65 feet (20 meters) away with its high-resolution 5-megapixel camera. The pocket-sized flying drone connects to your smartphone via its intuitive app allowing you to operate its turbofan propellers and at the same time, take the highest quality aerial shots. It’s not only fun to fly but it takes truly captivating images.
Slipping seamlessly into its hybrid phone cover/charging dock, the flying camera is shockingly lightweight (1.8 oz/52 grams) and highly portable. Backed by $534,000 in funding from its Kickstarter campaign and with an estimated delivery date scheduled for May of 2017, Airselfie drone is poised to revolutionize how we capture images.
Airselfie can take off from your hand and hover back to your hand for a controlled landing. Whether you want to capture the exact moment you reach the summit of your favorite trail or snap the panoramic of a backyard party, Airselfie will store and share all of life’s moments on social media. Capable of capturing the action whether you’re indoors or outdoors, the iOS/Android app gives users the option of three different flight modes. This lets you control every aspect of the drone’s flight and the timing of the shot.
From high angle 5 MP pictures to HD videos, here is the step-by-step process:
Step 1: Slip Airselfie from the case attached to your smartphone and turn it on.
Step 2: Open the phone app and press the “lift button” to watch the drone fly up to 20 meters high.
Step 3: Adjust the height and direction with the app by choosing one of the three flight modes. Let autonomous hovering take over, then press the proper button and voila – instant aerial shot or video.
Step 4: Land Airselfie into your own hand or snatch it out of mid-air while it hovers above you.
Step 5: Put in back in its case and let it recharge accordingly.
Airselfie comes with a special phone cover designed to hold and charge your flying camera. This accessory is rather imperative especially since Airselfie has a battery that lasts only three minutes. Even with the fast charging time of 30 minutes via its power bank case, Airselfie won’t be replacing a wedding photographer or the paparazzi anytime soon.
If you’re so inclined, Airselfie can also double as a security camera. Simply plug your drone into a power outlet and you instantly have a home monitoring device. Just pull up the app on your phone and watch your home from afar. The Airselfie fits the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, Google Pixel, and Samsung S7 Edge.
