When the first drones hit the retail market, they were best flown outdoors, the higher and faster the better. As cameras got better, and the drones began to hover with amazing precision, close up photography became possible. Even newer drones offer zoom on the cameras, making many drones even more viable for snapping your photo.

Quadcopters were then built smaller and smarter, to the point they could be stored in your pocket, flown indoors without worry of a crash and are getting their selfie game on. That is, they’re allowing you to get your selfie game on. Here are some of the best selfie drones on the market today.

Drone Rush our philosophy

 

Phone or drone?

This is where I draw the line between toy and tool, folks, and if you have been using smartphones over the years, what I am about to say should make perfect sense.

Glad to announce: The DJI Mavic 2 Pro packs a 1-inch Hasselblad camera, a marked upgrade from most phone sensors around.

If you think of a $1000 drone like a flagship smartphone, you can appreciate that a
