I think that many people had moments when they wanted to take a group photo, but it was impossible for everyone to take a picture together – one would always stand with the camera and take pictures. Or when one, all alone, you want to capture an interesting moment in memory, and there is no one to ask for a photograph. In such cases, a special flying camera will come to the rescue.
For convenience, I will do a little maintenance.
So let's get started.
Introduction: what is AirSelfie 2
This is a compact pocket quadrocopter in a metal case with special sensors to hold the position (and height), with a built-in 12MP pixel video camera, as well as special algorithms for tracking the object. Self-drone AirSelfie 2 allows you to take a number of shots, including group shots, to shoot a video in any situations and in the most unusual poses.
This is a real pocket quadcopter in a durable aluminum case. The size is only 98.5 × 71.2 × 13.6 mm and the weight is a modest 80 g. The flight time is enough to shoot a series of photographs and short videos. Built-in memory 16 GB.

AirSelfie 2 appearance and scope of delivery
The flying camera is a compact quadrocopter on brushless powerful motors. Of course, powerful for its size and in comparison with small collector ones. The propellers are protected by a sturdy aluminum housing. The camera is located in front, and below – an optical height sensor and an acoustic surface sensor.
Packaging branded, thoughtful, carries a lot of information and a brief description.
This is not a shame to give)))
Inside the device and the case-paverbank are laid in two layers.
12MP camera, directed forward (towards the user).
Self-drone AirSelfie 2 has a built-in system for accurate positioning in space: a gyroscope, a barometer and an optical sensor. Based on measurements of these sensors, automation works, which greatly simplifies drone control.
Detailed photos: marking, optical and acoustic sensors, power button, camera, propellers with b / c motors.
The case is a stylish protective case with built-in charging (10000mAh battery). This is also a transport function, protection from shock and external influences on the drone, as well as additional hours of operation from the built-in battery.
An indication of operation is provided (charging the case, charging the drone, the battery level of the case). Please note that there is a powerbank function for a smartphone
Case marking: honest (full) capacity 38.3W * h (battery 10080mAh at 3.8V) is indicated or in terms of 5V it is about 7000mAh.
Inside is a USB Type-C connector – for connecting to a drone.
Connect, configure, calibrate AirSelfie 2
To connect to a smartphone, download the AirSelfie2 application from market/ appstore
When the AirSelfie2 application starts, a splash screen is displayed, then the application asks to connect to the device. After connecting, you can select one of the modes (simple, medium, expert).
Connection is via Wi-Fi connection. We are looking for the AirSelfie2 network, the password is “12345678”.
The application has a tutorial on how to work and configure, as well as tips. There is a menu of device settings with calibration presets (speed). Depending on the selected mode, the control may be more loyal and simple for beginners, as well as intended for experienced users.
You can control it using the keys (in simple mode: up / down, left / right, forward / backward and turns), or the joystick / tilt of the smartphone. All modes are thought out, but you need to get used to the controls. For the first flights, I recommend to try it indoors or in a space protected from the wind on the street.
I draw your attention to the fact that the type of surface and possible interference affect the correctness of the height sensors.
I strongly recommend that before flying, calibrate on a flat surface, as well as fulfill the required conditions – you need to calibrate so that the sensors are in the air (put a couple of planks).
When choosing an angle for photographs, keep in mind that the camera has a viewing angle of about 80 ° and a tilt angle of 2 ° down: calculation for images at close range (but not close), and at a low height ~ 1.5 … 2 m. Suitable for group shots. You can enable video recording to set the camera in motion / rotation, to obtain a video panorama. There is stabilization when shooting movies. The distance and control height are limited to 20 meters (so as not to fly away), and the Wi-Fi signal can weaken with distance. Better not take the risk.
The device holds the height of the built-in sensors. Attention, in open spaces and in strong winds, the quadric can be drifted to the side. Be careful. He is too small to deal with strong impulses.
In the settings there is an intelligent control mode – for tracking moving objects. We grab someone (ourselves, a child, etc.) in the frame, press the corresponding button. The drone begins to turn after the object.
We direct where you want, take pictures (there is a timer, burst shooting), or make a video.
We put it back on the hand: we framed the hand, pressed the touchdown button.
Photo and video files
You can download it without problems via a regular usb cable with a computer or laptop. In this case, the file system of the 16GB drive inside the drone becomes visible.
Well, or the same is available in the Gallery menu through the application and WiFi connection on the smartphone.
Conclusion, conclusions and discount coupon
Quite an interesting device that you can really take with you in your pocket to any event. The manufacturer minimized the various difficulties associated with controlling a quadrocopter to simple actions.
The launch and shooting of photographs takes literally 3-4 seconds, then you can put it back in your pocket. The charging case provides several extra flights and transportation protection.
The flight time from one charge, taking into account photo-video shooting, is about 5 minutes. This is enough for a series of shots and videos. Then the drone emits a sound signal (the application notifies of a discharge, the smartphone vibrates), you can land AirSelfie 2 and set it to charge in the powerbank case. Capacities are enough for 12-15 cycles of a device charge. This is the best result among analogues. AirSelfie 2 takes about 30 minutes to fully charge.
By the way, it is possible to charge from any USB 5V power bank or from a USB 5V network charge (a USB Type-C cable is required).
