JJRC H47 Elfie

By far the cheapest Pocket Selfie Drone on the market, the JJRC H47 Elfie is slightly smaller than an iPhone and its fully foldable propellers and arms make it highly portable and light.  It has a battery life of around 8 minutes with a 60 minute charge time, and spare batteries are readily available. There is no remote controller included in the box as it is controlled by a smartphone app.  The JJRC H47 Elfie has good quality FPV real-time video feed which does lag a little, and it features a number of flight modes including Headless Mode and Altitude hold to keep the drone fixed in one place whilst you take pictures.  The drone uses an integrated air-pressure sensor rather than GPS so it does tend to drift a little.  Its range is quoted as 40m but realistically it is slightly more at 50-60m.  The onboard 0.3MP (480p) WiFi FPV camera isn't great quality as its below HD, but is probably about what you can expect for the price.  There is no SD card as the footage is saved directly to your smartphone.  JJRC H47 Elfie Spare Propellers are fairly cheap, readily available, and easy to fit.

 Some users have reported issues with calibration and connectivity, with some features not working on certain phones, so the JJRC H47 Elfie scored lower in the reliability stakes, but all in all we think it's a great Selfie drone for the price.
