Dutch electronics company TRNDlabs has announced the creation of the SKEYE Pico Drone, which it claims is the smallest drone in the world.
The cute drone weighs less than 7g and measures just 2.2cm x 2.2cm, definitely making it one of the tiniest flying machines around. However, its size makes it super-agile, either traveling in a straight lines or flipping, turning, diving or any other display of sky acrobatics with ease. It uses a 6-axis flight control system to move freely and creatively while maintaining the drone’s balance completely.
Because it’s so small, the SKEYE Pico Drone will also fit through tiny gaps – making it perfect for snooping on people in their homes (joke!). Using Ready to Fly (RTF) technology, you can just throw the drone into the air and it will instantly take off. You can fly it at home or outside in crowded areas and it’ll pretty much go unnoticed, avoiding people and other obstacles that may lie in its path.
You are able to easily adjust sensitivity level on the intuitive remote by choosing beginner, mid-level, and expert and test your skills but also improve your flying over time.
Test your skills by yourself or take it to a whole new level and challenge your friends to an action-packed obstacle challenge b. And because the SKEYE Pico Drone features LED lights, it is a lot more fun at night time.
Unsurprisingly, the SKEYE Pico Drone was designed with portability in mind. It can be stored in a safe and secure way inside the handheld controller. So unless you lose the entire package, you should always be able to find the drone, despite it being so teeny tiny. This also makes it easy to carry around in a bag, or even a pocket too.
The package also ships with a specially designed charging cable and four replacement rotor blades in case you do manage to crash the drone.
The SKEYE Pico Drone is currently on sale for £29 on the TRNDlabs website.
