AirSelfie2 pocket-sized camera drone launches with slight improvements
AirSelfie2, an update to the original AirSelfie drone launched in late 2016, is now available for purchase. The new model, which was introduced during CES 2018, improves upon the original AirSelfie by increasing the camera resolution from 5MP to 12MP, including a 16GB integrated microSD card versus the original’s 4GB capacity, and increasing flight time by two minutes.
The AirSelfie2 features an anodized aluminum casing with overall dimensions slightly larger than a smartphone at 3.8″ x 2.8″ x 0.5″ / 9.7cm x 7cm / 1.3cm. The internal 400mAh battery provides up to five minutes of flight time per charge, with four turbo brushless fans providing lift. Users wirelessly control the miniature drone using a mobile app available on iOS and Android; range is vaguely stated as “over 60ft.”
The drone’s camera captures still images and Full HD videos with an 85-degree FOV. The company behind the device, AirSelfie Holdings, promises new features and “experiences” delivered to AirSelfie2 drone owners via future updates.
