This automatic hover drone is one of the longest flying toy drones that I've tested. Automatically hovers in place with optical flow position hold. Find it here
– Inexpensive drone
– Very large 3.7V 2200mah battery provides over 18 minutes flight time.
– Optical flow position hold automatically holds the drone in motionless hover without need of pilot input.
– Gesture control to automatically take a photo by simply flashing a V sign with your fingers.
– Altitude hold, headless mode, and one key return.
– Uses common 2.4Ghz FPV (i.e. it should work with your phone).
– FPV video and photos are viewed and recorded to your smartphone using the HFun app available on Google Play here and iTunes here
– Usual WiFi lag and dropped frames in recorded video.
– Although app has active track capability, I could not get it to work with this drone.
