Man Takes Incredible Selfie Using His Drone

So while you'll have a hard time beating an astronaut this certainly comes close to being one of the coolest selfies we've ever seen.

Matt Benedetto took his drone -- a DJI Phantom 2 -- attached a GoPro 3+ and let the scenery do the rest of the work.

Take in Burlington Vermont Benedetto's self-titled 'dronie' is simple, stunning and we'd think he was showing off if it wasn't so beautiful.

Thankfully for Benedetto there weren't any hawks nearby to ruin the view making him increasingly the exception to the rule.
