Rova Fly­ing Selfie Drone ......................................

I was ex­cited to re­view this very niche and di¡er­ent prod­uct, pre­sum­ably aimed at nar­cis­sists or peo­ple with too much money and who doesn’t know what a tri­pod is. Call­ing it a drone is gen­er­ous, the flight con­trols are very dižcult to op­er­ate with any pre­ci­sion, and are fun­da­men­tally bro­ken as it sim­ply won’t fly higher than about two me­ters.

The app is brown and poorly ex­plained, it took six or seven times restart­ing, re­in­stalling, re­con­nect­ing through the Rova ap­pli­ca­tion to ac­tu­ally get to the take-o¡ stage, which takes the fun out of what should be some­thing cool.

Due to the whole unit weigh­ing next to noth­ing, for­get about us­ing it out­doors if a light breeze is present. This is a se­vere lim­i­ta­tion. It’s also $400, which is puz­zling.
