It can be controlled via hand gestures, mobile phone, or, for the maximum range of 1.2 miles, via hand controller. The only downside of this model is that the propeller arms don’t fold which can be a little tricky if you want to take it on a trip with you.
Another selfie drone we have to mention is ZEROTECH DOBBY.
