The company says the Selfly allows smartphone users to capture selfies and pictures from heights and distances not possible before.

Mike Kahn, AEE's Chief Marketing Officer, said: "More photographs are being taken now on smartphones than ever before because the best camera is the one you can always have with you. With a touch of a button, Selfly springs to life and flies a mission to capture your selfies from high above, from tight spaces or from a distance, as never possible before.”

The detachable drone case snaps onto most all standard size 4-6-inch smartphones. It is controlled via a smartphone app and is equipped with 1080P, full high-definition video capability. However, it only has a flight time of four minutes with an approximate recharge time of 30 minutes.

Selflys are set to ship this quarter, AEE Aviation Technology says, and will cost around $130.
