AirSelfie debuted and finished their Kickstarter goal in 72 hours, raising enough to set up production on their pocket-sized flying camera that integrates with smartphones. Pre-orders are being accepted and product is scheduled for delivery in May of 2017.

“People have the impression that flying cameras are costly, difficult to operate and unwieldy,” said Edoardo Stroppiana, co-founder of AirSelfie. “AirSelfie redefines the space with a device that’s small, light and easy to use. We have succeeded in developing a great product, and we can’t wait to share it with our growing base of AirSelfie enthusiasts.”

AirSelfie is comprised of four powerful propellers and a five-megapixel video camera, is smaller than a smartphone and can fly vertically up to 66 feet, allowing users to take aerial selfies of themselves and their friends. The device connects to the most popular smartphones, including iPhone (6, 6s, 7 and 7 Plus), Huawei P9, Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It includes self-generated WiFi and comes equipped with a rechargeable battery through a cell phone case, as well as the option to purchase an external power bank. Additionally, a vibration-absorber system and in-flight stability systems guarantee stable, clear, flowing images.
