A slippery fur in a pocket, Drofie
A feast of functional drones targeting the digital generation enjoying the silk is continuing. Not long ago, AirSelfie, a handheld airplane specializing in self-help, appeared in overseas crowdfunding kickstarts, collecting more than 800% of the target amount. In recent years, however, Indigo has attracted the attention of users with the emergence of Drofie Selkadron, which has a combination of Drone and Selfie. Although the drones are small enough to fit in their pockets, they have a variety of functions such as photo and video shooting, paloumi and live streaming.

In one hand,
The folded design of the Selphydron Drofie is folded in half so it can be easily carried in your pocket when folded. The thickness of the drones is only 20mm, and the weight is also 140g, which is very light. Drofie, with four propellers, uses a BLDC motor, which is said to be noisy and does not degrade when used for longer than a regular motor.
Using the built-in infrared technology, you can launch the drones off the palm of your hand because it is easy to take off and land due to the light weight of the aircraft. The built-in LED flash unit also allows you to take pictures and videos even in dark places. Drofie colors are available in four colors: blue, pink, gray and gold.
High-definition camera that works with smartphone
Drofie is a small but versatile drones. You can shoot clear 15 megapixel photos and 1080p 30 frame images without blur, and you can freely manipulate the drones with dedicated WiFi and GPS functions. It is also easier to take pictures and images because it can utilize the follow-me and real-time streaming technology that automatically recognizes the user's face and continuously shoots it. These features are available for smartphones that are running Android 4.3 or higher, or for iPhones that are running the iOS 8.0 operating system.
Not just a camera, but a lifestyle
Drofie captures scenes that are difficult to include with self-portraits and self-portraits, from scenes that blend in with beautiful landscapes to photographs taken with multiple people. That's why Drofie LLC is also referring to Drofie as a flying cellar. Detailed specifications such as the flight height and speed of the drone are not yet known, but they are said to have improved stability in use with a solid frame.
One gripe about this product is the short flight time. Like most minidrons, Drofie is also hard to fly for so long. With a battery capacity of 1000mAh, Drofie can fly for up to 9 minutes. That's why you need to check your drones battery from time to time through your app and use it frequently.
Drones for the Self
Mohamed Ghaith, CEO and founder of Drofie LLC, has often come across products that are large in size and lack performance. So he said he wanted to make a dron which is compact and has a lot of functions, but also has a good caustic ratio. The idea of Muhammad was linked to a product called Drofie on May 26 last year, and then it took about a year and a half to go into concrete concepts and prototypes. And on November 20th he launched Drofie on the overseas crowdfunding website Indigo Go. As of December 6, the funding deadline is about one month, and after the deadline, the functional test will be completed until February 2017, and the order will be delivered from July next year.
The flying Selpidron Drofie is 200x100x20mm in size and light weight of 140g, which makes it easy to carry on the go, and it will satisfy users with various features such as follow-up and real-time streaming. At present, Early Bird is available for $ 199 and $ 259 for a list price. The Drofie body, two propellers and a special charger are included with the purchase. With the activation of the social network service (SNS), many users are enjoying self-portraits and I am confident that users who enjoy photography and video photography will be able to use Drofie to create even better compositions. Maybe the coming 2017 "Let me take a Drofie" buzzword is born.
