Selfie lovers, from across the world, have a reason to rejoice. A self-flying drone, having a Lily camera, can now capture awesome aerial selfies for you.

The drone will know exactly where you are located by automatically tracking your location with the help of small remote along with the GPS that will be with you, according to CNN money reports.

It flies at a range of 2 to 50 feet off the ground and won’t need a real time plotting or a hand held controller.

You have to just throw it in the air and after you are done clicking the selfie; it lands directly on your hand just like a boomerang with a press of a button.

"It's all about getting the shot. Lily takes care of all the flight," co-founder Henry Bradlow was quoted as saying.

You can also pre-set the movements or customize the shots on your mobile with the mobile app. The cam can follow you and provide shots like cinematic tracking ones, slowly zoom in or out, make a lazy circle around you or just hover so that you can set a spot in the air.

The device is shaped like a disc and black in colour and has a quadcopter, which is 10 inches wide and 3 inches tall and weighs about 2.8 pounds. It can record without being charged for a period of 20 minutes.

The cam can shoot about 1080p video and 12 MP still pics. It appeals to a selfie stick and helps to take good photographs while you are in a huge crowd such as an IPL match.
