4 Exceptional Budget Selfie Drones In 2019

Good Job!

Planning to up your selfie game a notch with drones? Good job!  

In a world & time, where & when you can visit any place on Earth virtually, sitting on your couch, tap a few times on your screen and have anything delivered to you, sitting on your couch, and earn a hell more than a few bucks online, sitting on your couch, tongue-out-bent-neck-eyebrows-high-close-up selfie from your phone doesn’t suffice.

Get a drone and take a selfie of yourself sitting on your couch on the top of the largest waterfall in the world.

Ok! maybe I went too UP!

The point being, with regular technological advancements and innovative designs, controlling a drone and capturing yourself along with your vicinity is as effortless and easy as taking a mirror selfie.

Not to mention, drones are getting cheaper with every breath you take.

In this article, I have talked about the top 4 selfie drones with extraordinary features that should blow your mind. They blew mine.

What to look for?

Selfie drones are like toy drones: compact and light, but, with good quality cameras. And good quality cameras make the foundation of several convenient features.

A few features to look for in selfie drones:

LIVE VIEW

for frame aesthetics

GESTURE CONTROL

for instant selfies

AUTO-FLIGHT

for convenient utility

GIMBLE

for stabilized images

PORTABILITY

to take it wherever you want

LONG RANGE

for wider selfies
