Drones have become a serious part of the photography experience, capable of capturing unique photos and videos that no non-flying camera ever could. But as anyone who’s ever been attacked by a drone will tell you, piloting them is not easy – regardless of whether you’re using a touchscreen or an external controller.
Fortunately, there’s a new self-flying drone that handles all of this on its own: the Hover 4K Camera Passport Self-Flying Camera Drone.
This Red Dot Design award-winning drone uses facial recognition to fly autonomously and capture 360-degree, panoramic 4K photos and videos of you in your environment. Much like the more expensive DJI drones, the Hover also lets you use hand gestures to snap photos anytime. And when you’re finished flying, the Hover folds up to a travel-friendly size and can easily fit into a small bag or purse.
The Hover is made of lightweight carbon fiber so you can safely grab it in mid-air without getting hurt. And thanks to regular firmware updates, new features and improvements get added to its AI constantly.
